Subject: How many other countries have you been to?
I went ahead and put up a quick poll - keep throwing up ideas here - I will use some of them.
The current poll - How many other countries have you been to? (And before someone asks - for those places which may or may not be considered as a country by everyone - simple, if you consider it a different country, count it. If not, don't count it.)
The current poll would be better if it had asked “how many hours are you active on Brainking per day/week?”. On a normal day when I’m at home I keep a Brainking tab open all day, I didn’t know which option to choose but I picked one anyway.
rod03801: It also shows up fellowship polls - you may have hidden one of "those" which hides everything. (also a reason why I'll try to at least post in here when I start a poll - just in case some have it hidden... but still read this board.)
Since the current poll out is looking like users here will mostly like shorter polls (1 week), I figured I would try to make some 7 day "quick polls" here and there - so figured I would start out one about web browsers.
PLEASE FEEL FREE to leave suggestions - Looking for a subject that will apply to everyone world wide (not just one country). Feel free to post them here, or leave me a private message with them if you want.
As for the current poll about web browsers - I would guess that top 5 will get the most votes (Chrome,Firefox, IE, Opera, & Safari) - but included about 14 others
**** Also the past poll about an Anonymous vs. Public was pretty close (Well most people don't care) - but a more people like Anonymous then Public... but since it was pretty close, I'll try to mix in some Public votes along the way for fun.
Snoopy: OK, I lied - I went ahead and released the poll a few minutes ago since this next week will be a busy one for me, so might as well do it now.
How long should discussion polls stay open to vote?
Some quick facts:
Most votes are done within the first 2- 3 days (for example, the 2016 Summer Olympic poll was open for about 3 days and got 249 votes)
Other polls lately which have been open for 1 month has gotten around 350 votes
The World Cup 2010 poll has been open for about 2 months, and has gotten around 550 votes.
So of course the longer they are open, the more votes they will get - so what do you think is a good time frame?
MY OPINION: 14 days for a poll to stay open, giving the majority of people a chance to vote and hopefully catch those who are on vacation. And then also try to start one every time one ends, so around 2 polls a month. (Of course if the votes say something different, I'll try to do what the public wants..)
Snoopy: If I stay up on them and try to do 2 a month, then it should only take a little over 3 years to get about 75 more of them.... Maybe squeeze in a bonus one here or there and maybe get it to just under 3 years...
puupia: I cannot even imagine how that would taste. Reindeer and crowberries are completely unknown to me, chanterelles I haven't had since forever ago and emmentaler is indeed quite unusual to be used as a pizza topping. I guess you can only get something like that In Finland or other Nordic countries, people are crazy enough there to prepare such a pizza…
