Mod hat on: Polls seem to be getting overused and passe. I dont think every discussion topic needs a poll. Discuss.
In my limited time here, there do deem to be alot of polls. Does that mean that they are overused? IMHO, no. It avoids some meaningful discussion. However, most people seem to post from work and it gives them a chance to weigh in on subjects quickly. As for passe, I think polls are forever chic. That being said I would agree that not every subject needs a poll, and I wish voting in polls didn't register as a new post.Chet said:

I strongly agree with you on this Chet... as of late... I have really cut down on my time during the work day.....especially in regards to FAC. I brushed upon this topic in another thread.Chet said:Perhaps thats my point. Many of us - especially moderators and lurkers - whom aid or view cyburbia from work for meaningful professional purposes. Lately, I have taken the tact to look at every thread I respond to and ask, "would my boss approve of this use of company time?"
As a result, I have also scaled back - but not eliminated - my FAC participation to after hours and weekends. I know of several cyburbanites that feel the same way, several after IT scares that could have cost them dearly.
Yeah... if it were possible, the FAC threads could not appear in the Threadspotting in the main page... at least to hide the unprofessional side of Cyburbiatsc said:Some of the topics in FAC that are on front page under thread spotting really aren't appropriate from the professional prospective.

The mods are trying to close the old polls to prevent them from being bumped again. The user that has been bumping them has been warned by PM.Mike D. said:Its all Xs Man.... they're everywhere.
