Can we keep it so that we can't post polls in General Chat because that's what I want?

Yeah, we'll get right on that just because you want it like that...  :sarcasm:

At this point, I believe Stormer should just create his own forums and he can run it and set it up how he chooses.

This forum has lived for more than a decade without any problems like yours.

Suck it up, son. You don't want to get warnings for posting pointless suggestions now.

 

Anything else, hit up the 'Have a Question" topic.

No really, why can you do it in other forums but not GC? I would like to post some polls in there.

 Because it's gen-chat, the whole point of the forum is for general discussions not for polls.

You could say that about any forum

Other forums are all related to specific things. Gaming Chat is only for games, Tech and PC chat is only for stuff related to computers. However Gen-Chat is a place where you can discuss almost anything, I don't see the point of having a poll there.

Because you have a poll and a discussion about it underneath. People like ticking boxes.

That doesn't make any sense at all. People usually vote and leave the thread, there is basically lesser discussion there.

People like it too much.  We like to keep moderation simple/relaxed in the Off Topic forums. Polls generate far too much spam; "ticking a box" encourages one word replies, "+1s" and "voted" posts.

 

All very unseemly.

Oh, I remember in the olden days when you could post polls in General Chat.  Boy they were useless.

In the olden days, people respected that.  Today, you are just an old fart.  And yes, I still play GTA2.  Because it is the best.

I used to be a guest here since 2004.. and finally I registered in 2007..

 

too bad that my old acc got banned :( 

 

 

the only person I know (via internet) here from the old days is uNi, back when I was a member from another forum and he was an admin there

 

Good old times
