    Okay I think the polls have been disabled long enough and I know we can submit poll ideas to macpolls.com, but not all of them are Mac/Macrumors related and there's no guarantee that they'll ever get through, can we have polls reactivated for regular users pretty pleeze?

    I agree. Polls are fun, and if someone makes a 'stupid' poll, the
    thread can always be deleted. And if it is too stupid, it will
    be ignored most probably. I enjoy polls. :)

    I 4ed it.

    (4ed... that don't sound right... 4th'd? eh...)

    I say yes too, unless there is some hidden reason like bandwitch or something... which I doubt.

    Time to bring back the polls. :D

    Ever since I became a member here, polls weren't allowed, but it seems like a good idea to have polls. Unless they takes too much time for the moderaters to moderate.

    BTW, nice 'tar vniow! ;) :D

    Ever since poll madness, the poll posting option was removed. The daily poll was used to as an alternative. So if you have an idea for a poll, pm arn and tell him.

    Well that's the whole issue, not all polls are Mac/Macrumors related so there is even less chance of them actually getting through than there is if you just PM arn about it, I don't think having regular users being able to create polls will take away from macpolls.com since it's already established and linked from the main page.
    There are a few threads I've seen that would have been better done woth polls and some would definately not make it to macpolls.com.

    Hehe, I like the "How many licks does it take?" thread, what an excellent title ;)

    Anyway, we probably won't have any problems unless a few members lose their minds again (you know who you are)

    Poll madness?: Allow only 1 poll per person per week. Problem solved. Ehhhhh. :rolleyes:

    Hmmm, maybe we should have a poll on that. On a serious note, that does sound like a decent idea, but would be altogether difficult to implement and moniter.

    Implementation should be easy and no one would have to monitor it (because the server takes care of everything), unless some hacker tries to get around it. He he he. :D

    Well, if it can be done, it should be done. Mods?
