    Default Polls vs Games

    See below post. I change my mind on this matter.

    I also support having a sub-forum for games. Having them mixed in with the polls makes it a little harder to find the games and cast votes each day.

    I agree with the OP.

    I don't think well of this polls vs. games dynamic; they aren't competing against one another. Both are for harmless fun and light entertainment.

    I'm satisfied with the current logistics, but it isn't a big deal to me if it changes.

    Games get a lot of bumping, so most of the polls aren't going to last very long.
    What would you do with the Science project?

    I change my mind on this matter. Most polls sort of deteriorate this forum, and I'm not referring to recently but irreversibly now, because they're based on popularity not any real niche representation (representation theories I've worked on and posted myself.) It is good to throw them in the games forum, when someone wants to make a main forum poll, the mods should decide where it goes:

    I'm not really keen on supporting polls by giving them their own forum, until I make my own, as mine are usually group-comparative, not of an ultimate nature.

    It's better to dicuss topics in a personal way, ie. "I think this," and not "This opinion wins the poll!" It creates better discussion and atmosphere.

    The mods are doing a good job. Disregard this thread, imo.

    With the original post deleted, and the OP asking to disregard the thread, I think it's better closed. Anybody who would like to discuss a subject like this can do so in a new thread, so we all know what we are discussing.
