Hi,<br><br>
Not a complaint, just an observation.<br><br>
Having a random poll on the front page seems to be encouraging the "bumping" of old polls in the Post Race Tent. There sure were a lot on the front page when I logged in.<br><br>
And... some of the questions are kind of not front page material? Since they were made in the context of a "non-running" board. Some don't even have an understandable question, since the question is explained in the first post.<br><br>
Just thinking out loud here... I wonder if a "Polling Place" board for people to ask and answer polls?<br><br>
I like to answer polls, so I'm not complaining about their existence.<br><br>
I'm just wondering if we want ALL polls to be on the front page?

Or maybe lock the suckers down after a week. I'm sorely tempted to lock them all today.

Is there a way to "close" polls? I know on other sites I've seen older polls with a message "this poll is closed".

Okay, so it is clear that something in the front page is recycling all of the old posts.<br><br>
This happens regardless of whether they've been closed by me. Closing just stops them from floating to the front page of the PRT.

Can we get Diebold involved? Then people will figure that the poll is rigged and there is no sense in voting.... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/wink.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I like the lock it after a week idea.

A PRTer sent me a PM detailing their culpability in the pushing the polls to the top... it wasn't deliberate.<br><br>
I still think that there's something afoot on the front page though.

My guess is that someone was refreshing the front page to get new polls to vote in. Close?

I turned off the polls - I'm not sure to what extent I can 'edit' and modify - So, until i can get it figured out, I'll pull them off.<br><br><br>
Thanks for your feedback!<br><br>
