in reply to Polls on PM issues

I think Perl Monks Discussion would be the most appropriate place for these matters. Notwithstanding ww's opinion on polls above, I think the problem with them is their lack of accuracy and reliability, as far as using them to decide issues. However, I don't see why they couldn't be used to get a sense of the community opinion, either. How "seriously" one takes the question is part of one's opinion.

Also, it seems like higher rank (more XP) should entail more weight (more votes?) in deciding PM issues.

    I agree with your first bit, but I don't agree that experience on Perlmonks should give greater weight to votes.

    As of writing this node, I have a little over four thousand experience. However I have also not been able to spend much time on Perlmonks recently, and frankly many of the concerns voiced about Perlmonks itself don't interest me. I'm pretty satisfied with how things are.

    The point is that even though I have thousands of XP, it's likely that there are lots of other monks with less experience who pay more attention to the issues, and spend more time on the site. Their vote should count just as much as mine.
