New Membership Option - Standard + Polls

Post by Dissension »

In response to feedback given in the site satisfaction survey, we've created a new member class. The "Standard + Polls" membership will allow you to create your own polls, but grant no additional bonuses. You may apply for entrance to this class if you've been active on the forums for at least one month. When your application is received, we will review your membership history and let you know whether you've been upgraded within 24 hours.

Please bear in mind that we do not want poll spam! For the unforeseen future, we ask each member only have two polls running simultaneously. We reserve the right to revoke this privilege if you abuse it.

[ Click here to apply via PM! ] (All you need to do is title the PM "Standard + Polls Application" and include the offer code "chinchillas4eva.")

We want to give you the best community experience we can. Please don't hesitate to let us know, either via the survey or directly, if you have any additional feedback or suggestions.

Just to clear up potential confusion, if you're approved, you don't have to take any action to join the new group. When making a new thread or editing the first post of a thread you've created, you'll see a section for poll options beneath the ones to write your post and add any attachments.

That sounds nice, though I personally don't see a need for me to make a poll. Looking forward to what manages to come up, though.

Will mods be able to give out waivers for this rule?
(eg. if Valerio uses up his two for his fic or something, then decides he should make one for BPS, can I tell him it's ok to have 3?)

I don't think I've ever run more than one poll at once on SLU and other forums that allow polls.

I was using you as an example. You're one of the most prolific posters in two sections, so you were the first person to come to mind.

Unfortunately the Housepets forum is NOT a vetting process to find skilled starship pilots for a desperate battle against incredible odds halfway across the galaxy.

What about S.T.A.R.S? I hear they are actively recruiting these days.

It's been (OK, more than) half a decade since anyone posted in here, so uh

here

read the first post if you're interested

read the rest of the thread if you wanna giggle*.

*reading the entirety of this thread may not cause giggling. this post does not constitute explicit or implicit guarantee of giggling. nothing is funny. we still support the ko-dan armada.

Wasn't the option to make polls always available? I wouldn't really remember but it usually is so I thought that this was a new feature and was wondering why.

For you, it always was; for me, it was five years into my time on the forum. :3
