Nothingness: If you are the Big Boss of a fellowship, you can create a poll inside your fellowship. (I believe Little Bosses might be able to, as well) Only Fencer, Tanein and Coan.net can create site-wide polls.
coan.net: Personally, I say keep creating them at the pace it has always been at. If there are teams that don't want to join another one until the one they are already is finished, then they can do that. Just like anything else, there is nothing saying anyone has to sign up for every single one.
Being a turn based site, of course things are going to drag on longer than many people would like. I've just accepted it by now. lol. BUT, being able to have next rounds start when there is a clear winner would be a GREAT compromise, and would help immensely. Hopefully that's part of 3.0!!!

KnightFighter: I really do understand, Andy. But, if you read the news, he has already been working on this. Adding a new game type to this site (especially this type) does not make it "cookie-cutter". (It is rare to see this game type on a site of this sort). Adding this new game type does not change what is already here and gives this great site its personality.
Who said we can't live without it? It is Fencer's site, and he has already decided to do it. Most other people seem happy with this idea, why rain on their parade? If it doesn't work out, then it doesn't work out. It wouldn't be the first game that was added that probably didn't work out quite the way it was hoped it would.
I have agreed with you that a vast majority of card games would not work out here. However, that shouldn't stop the very few that would, from being here. And as Fencer said, the new game is not going to be the traditional turn-based type. If anything, this could be the start of a "new generation" of game types/play on this site. It's pretty exciting.
So, wow, that's even MORE exciting! Do you have plans of multiple types of card games then, at some point? I love cards!!! I can't wait!
KnightFighter: I'm not fooling myself. I have been part of turn based sites for many years now, as I'm sure you probably have too. I have also been playing card games practically my whole life, and am quite aware of the limitations. Yes, a huge majority of card games would not work. (At least not in a "satisfying" way)
My point was that no one needs to "wake up". Fencer has already said a card game is coming.
There is already at least one turn based site that successfully has card games, as well.
