puupia: I think that when you look at the selection of toppings, it is clear that it is the American pizza what should be considered here. You can hardly get any other salami than pepperoni in the U.S., while here in Europe it is quite common to use quite a variety of salamis. Also the cheeses listed in the poll are rarely used in continental Europe (except for mozzarella, of course). We don't use provolone, cheddar, or Colby (which is actually a cheddar too). Instead, edam is very popular, as well as a number of blue-veined chesses. Then the bacon – the European bacon is not the same as the American one. And so on and so forth. You're right about the chicken, turkey, and I would also add beef. To sum it up, American pizza is simply different from European pizza. And I have different favorite toppings for each of them. :)
Pedro Martínez: Yeah pepperoni is there. But its only a kind of salami, and not really my favorite kind..
And then in the meat section chicken is not listed. In most pizza places in Finland you can get chicken in your pizza easily, but turkey is more uncommon. I guess this might be the case elsewhere also.
Also sausage in the list is something that most europeans don't really know what it is. I'm quite sure coan.net means the american kind of sausage with that one. And that stuff its not really sausage at all :P
puupia: Jalapenoes was *almost* on the list. I actually spent about an hour doing internet searches on what the most "popular" toppings of pizza were - and like I mentioned, I probable had over 100 toppings at first... but tried to take off those that seemed a little less popular (leaving Almonds and Pecans on the list because I've never seen nuts on a pizza and thought it might be interesting if either of those got votes.)
But since I have to type in each answer - submit - then as more answers are added scroll down to add another answer, I tried to keep the list as short as possible while still trying to get the most popular.
So speaking on nuts on pizza - anyone ever see that and or try that? I'm not too big of a nut eater but for some reason it sounds like it might be kind of good on a pizza
rod03801: Mine still shows 24 of 25 (which is what it said before this poll was created) so apparently the new poll has not been added to my stat yet.
Also maybe wait another day or so, but I would like to know if people like having the polls be "public" where others can see their answers (and that it does still look OK on the poll page... and not make it hard to read and/or not hard to vote.) [again, will be interesting to see after 100 or 200 people vote and are all listed there.]
Well we finally got our 25th Public Poll (which can give many of us our achievement for answering all 25 polls)
I know I do not have all the option for toppings listed on this poll. I tried to list what I think are many of the top options, along with a few other options... BUT I KNOW I DID NOT LIST THEM ALL. (the poll would have hundreds of options if I did.)
So PLEASE feel free to list & discuss your favorite toppings here.
Also to have some fun (and to see how it will look), the poll is "public" which means everyone can see what others voted for.
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.
Pedro Martínez: Having them on fellowship polls with 20-30 people some-what works, but I was afraid that once we got 300+ names listed on the poll, it might distort the page a lot and make it hard to read and/or vote for those who hadn't voted yet.
I'm tempted to try it to see what will happen..... maybe I will try it with the next poll and if it does start to mess things up, I'm sure I can get Fencer to switch the option off on it.
Snoopy: Actually I did mean to come here and post about it - along with the (always) suggestion for other poll ideas to post them in here..... but I must have forgotten to.
Hopefully I will remember the World Cup which starts in June more in advance to give the poll a little longer time-frame out on this site.
... but of course I would like to have some more non-sport ideas if possible.
The current poll I put up for only about 2 weeks... and the poll actions ended after some of the games will be complete (would make more sense to end the poll before any games are complete.... but I did want to give a little extra time for the poll to be up.)
... in the back of my mind, I would have loved for Chicago to get it... since it would be about 3-4 hours away from me, and my son would be about 14/15 at that time and might be a fun thing to go see.... but on the flip side, Illinois is so screwed up financially that they don't need to be spending money on this anyway.
Glad it will be in South America for the first time.
coan.net: can i say first im really happy to see that only 2 were created for the month of August which is holiday season for most on BK and i also think if Fencer includes the ability to move to next round in BK 3 and hopefully also include subs to will shut me up on the subject
i understand what your saying to and of course ive got to abide by the creators and Fencer on this but saying that i also feel that im also has a paying member of the site entitled to have a say on the subject to
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!!!
Imsoaddicted: I know we discussed a little of this on the tournament board, but would love to discuss it a little more. (The subject of too many team tournament) (Plus since I'm one of the people who create site team tournaments, I REALLY do like to know what others want & think when creating them.)
Yes, team tournaments like regular tournament can take a long time to complete when there are some slower players, or games that can last a long time in certain cases (like Cloning gammon when more and more pieces are introduced to a game.)
On the face, the idea of "no more team tournaments until the others are finished" sounds good, but in my opinion, not really good for most players.
For example, Lets say I love Backgammon & love playing in backgammon site team tournaments. I join one, I play all my games within 1 month - I did not do too well & my team did not do to well, so we will not move on.
So what you are saying since other players (usually just a couple) will hold up a tournament for many many more months, that you think there should be no more backgammon team tournaments until it is complete - even if it will take 2 more years? Think that would be kind of unfair to me to not be able to play a site team tournament for that long just because the last one had not been completed yet.
Of course a helpful solution would be if Fencer does implement the ability of tournaments to start next rounds once the winners are determined - that way even though a slow game might still hold up a tournament, it might also be one of those games that don't even matter to the final results of the round.
