    This poll will last for five days.

    A new DECISION poll ... you'd better vote now!

    I think that polls are kind of pointless and only encourage spamming. I think removing them might generate some quality discussion in C&G.

    So would we call the forum Games?

    No, you need to keep the ampersand or it'll conflict with the existing Games forum.

    Nah. They're a quick, simple, and - alright - fairly silly way of seeing what people do, have, think and so on. And their sheer volume means that you get to see people's opinions on the most random things. Keep them :)

    No. The games that folks want to play can still take place with the polls around. I like them. They're fun, and a nice way to spend a few minutes here and there, and that's all you should want out of a forum, isn't it?

    Wasn't this board just about polls first and games joined later? It would be unfair to Census if the polls would be removed. :p

    Stop clinging to the past. The forum has evolved into something that doesn't really NEED polls anymore. Away with them I say.

    Yes. remove them. They clutter the place up. It makes it harder for me to find the draft game threads that I started.

    I agree with Inty. I always want to find Balderdash but its buried under the polls.

    Yep, I think we need a new forum just for polls, so this one can be called games2 or something. :p

    I'm going to cling to the past with this one. I think they are a valuable apsect of this board, as you don't really get a whole lot of them anywhere else, and regular users can't even make them anymore.

    Perhaps we could lock all ones created before a certain date, and simply not create very many per month. Set a limit, you know. That would also allow some updated versions of older polls. Since only mods can create polls, they can guarantee the forum doesn't get overrun, but poll fans will still get their democratic fix.

    I say no, but wouldn't mind if polls were moved to their own forum.

    I'd hate to see them removed altogether.
