Who are these people - and should we allow overybody polling rights???

We didn't on the old forum!

I dont think that anyone other than Admin should be allowd to have polling rights but we are still learning..

 

Steve

Disagree totally. What is wrong with sticking a poll up now and again? We're not voting for the next govt!

Haven't a clue who the three people are in the poll so wont be voting sorry....

 

It would be a shame to stop all the more sensible posters from actually creating polls just because some take advantage of it.

 

From what I know about phpBB the stupid posts, polls and people are easily deleted and by those with the 'power'. It's the automated member accounts and endless porn and viagra stuff you'll have the worst problem with :shock::P

I've never seem polls being missused so I don't understand why they shouldn't be allowed. Ok this examples perhaps not the best to judge by and I suspect that someone unintentionally clicked on the poll which is easy enough to do; I've done the same myself in the past. :oops:

Not providing a facility on the assumption that people will misuse it is IMO wrong.

 

The same argument was used on the other board for not allowing images. There one poster claimed that all the sites that allowed images were just full of porn but that's never been my experience and unless someone can tell me otherwise, it's certainly not been a problem here.

 

Polls can't be taken too seriously and in fact rarely get used.

 

I say give it a try and if it gets misused turn it off.

On the subject of facilities of what to allow or not, the other board has an option turned on to ignore people that you don?t particularly like what they have to say.

 

I don?t always agree with the views of certain posters but at the end of the day, this is a discussion forum and everyone has the right to express themselves. Choosing to automatically blank someone because they have differing views just doesn?t seem right to me but over there it seemed my opinion on this wasn?t shared by many others.

 

I?d like to think that this new board will provide the facilities that we had with the old one and not to go down the same lines as the Guardian with it?s OTT restrictions.

 

Ignore the ignore option.

La la la didn't see that; your post was blanked! :P

 

Seriously that option on the other site does wind me up a bit. I can?t help but feel that the people who administer the site are basing their decisions on their experience of chat rooms rather than local forums.
