Poll threads

Post by SublevelStudios » Mon Oct 07, 2019 11:55 am

I'm probably going to get lynched for this opinion but I just feel I need to see if I'm the only one who feels this way...if I am, I'll pack my bags :lol: :lol: :lol:

I just feel recently that the 'figure of the week' or 'vehicle of the week' posts are starting to clog up the forum a bit too much IMO. I feel other posts are getting lost in the plethora of poll posts that are up ATM.

Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against polls or the idea BUT I do think it needs to be a little less.

They are great, I’ve voted in most of them, appreciate the thought and effort behind them, but I do agree with what you’re saying too

Thanks fellas. They are fab and a totally worthwhile venture that add to the forum. Lars puts in a tremendous amount of time and effort getting them together. However, we are in the process of finding a solution where we can collate them and put them together somewhere safe, thus freeing up the Vintage Collecting Chat section a bit.

Same here. Love the polls (kudos to Lars) but one might miss other threads between them.
Just put em in a section "Poll threads". :wink:

I agree, Vintage collecting chat has just turned into whatever of the week. There’s nothing else on there. It’s prob discouraging people from starting threads about other things. Maybe it needs its own section or a sticky thread, dunno. No disrespect to Lars or anyone else but I do think it’s become too much. Variety is always a good option :)

I love polls, the forum would be a ghost town without them. A Poll section would be a good idea though.

I love the polls and the FOTW and agree that the forum would be a much quieter place without them. But I also do know what you mean, especially if someone adds a load of photos to a number of threads in the FOTW when they’ve just taken photos of collection (guilty of it myself once upon a time).

Sounds like plans are afoot to help. Well done the new mod team.

I think Poles are great - did a wonderful job installing my kitchen at a very reasonable price.

Good idea for a sticky for all polls, I love them by the way well done Lars for all your hard work, really enjoying voting ,
I'm sure the forum will pick up again, think there are always peeks and troughs with Star Wars, after the hype of the last 10 years I think the hobby is stabilising a bit who knows one day I might even be able to afford vintage again like the good old days 80s 90s :lol:
Always liked this forum, too old for face book etc :D
I used to visit this forum long before I joined and there really used to be some crazy **** on here back then …. :lol:

Firstly, you have to appreciate the amount of work that Lars is putting into these polls, which is commendable and shows his commitment to the hobby and the way he is trying to stimulate interest and as Grant mentioned, bring back the legendary banter :D

Polls are great for some and not for others so collating into a thread will keep everyone happy.

That's absolutely not in question and I do not want to look as though I'm bashing someone who clearly puts time, effort and passion into his posts - forum members like Lars are worth their weight in gold.

My point is I think the polls are taking presidence over the ususal chat and varaition in threads we used to have, and other stuff is simply getting lost. I just think a sub-section for the polls is needed to free up this section again.
