Yes! [In reply to] Can't Post

Of course I'd want my own poll to conform to my own views. Anyone that votes opposite to me is crossed off my virtual Christmas card list!

It's a toss who's the poll master around here [In reply to] Can't Post

I see quite a few from you, macfalk and a handful of others... I guess I've erected my fair share as well... but it is a genuine surprise to learn Magpie hasn't made a poll, ever. To think what we've missed over the years... (seriously)

Making a poll [In reply to] Can't Post

involves simplifying what you want from people.

I never do anything simply. Not that I have a disdain for simple. I have great admiration for it (haiku is my favorite type of poetry, for example). It's just that I can't do simple. Every time I think of something I want to 'poll' people on, I can't distill the possible answers down to fewer than a dozen or so and, even then, I'm setting a sort of parameter about what I want from people. What I most want from people are the things I haven't thought of or considered. If I funnel the approach down one avenue, people are most likely to follow that path rather than challenging it and striking off on one that suits them better.

This probably explains why I either feel that a poll hasn't given me any answer I can vote on or I have to chose 'other'.

It also explains why I submitted an entry into the "Show Your Hobbit Pride" competition that didn't fit into the rules at all. I didn't feel the rules allowed me to participate (because they were, imo, too limited) so I ignored them. That worked out for me, though. :-)

I'm a bit like that [In reply to] Can't Post

I hardly ever vote in the polls on here, because I don't like any of the choices.
But I hate voting 'other' because I feel like it doesn't fit either.

Polls [In reply to] Can't Post

I've proposed two polls so far and didn't vote on them. Not that I had not the time but was rather more interested in the opinions of others and what the result would be according to them.

Not always. [In reply to] Can't Post

Since I already know how I feel about stuff and I'm looking for an answer just from other folks I may not answer. If it's something I want "to win" I'll vote.
