Anything in the polls forum gets posted to the homepage so must be of high enough quality to justify it being there. We dont just move any junk to the polls forum as it gets a much wider audience there and must be properly formatted and have options for all users (including non applicable options).

I'm sorry, but I don't quite follow you. Are you stating that Polls in the "Poll" forum must be of higher quality than a poll posted in one of the other fora?

Why have a poll forum if it isn't where all polls belong? I would think that it's axiomatic if someone wants to do a poll put it in the "poll" forum. The other fora are for discussion albeit possibly about a poll's subject.

The polls forum is a forum section that has special code integration. Only moderators and admins can start threads in there as a result. The polls forum allows users to respond to threads, but not start them because polls from that forum are automatically posted to the homepage blog feed and need to be of a higher quality than just space mariens vs star trek type junk. Polls are appropriate in any forum as they lead to discussion and grant snapshots of a discussion, whereas the polls forum is specifically intended for polls which need a large number of responding users.

I see. I misunderstood the forum's purpose. I thought it was for the general public to use to get a response to a preposition. I hadn't realized that it's purpose was to gather data for the site.
Thank you for the explanation.

There are other non-Wargaming related forums for that.

It's only one thread a month, if that. Hell, we get more "You silly Grey English Kiniggit!" threads than we do SW Vs. WH40K.

SW veruses WH40k, sure. 1/month. I was just using that as an example for all of the Imperium of Man versus ____ polls.

My opinion, and I think a rule says, that all of those kinds of threads go down tho the Dakka Fiction area.
