Do you get tired of seeing the same poll on Main Street day after day, or perhaps you have a fun idea for a new Main Street Poll?
Submit ideas for new polls and if the Statisticians select it, you'll become one of the ET Pollers!


Submission Rules:

1. Try to keep the questions suitable for all groups - Elftown is a family site.
2. Suggested questions must have suggested answers as well.
3. Place your suggestion at the bottom.
4. FOLLOW the [#format] exactly as provided!
5. Controversial subjects (such as abortion, gay marriage, politics, etc) will not be accepted. The poll is meant to be a fun feature, and those topics tend to lead to argument and "mud-slinging".
6. The Statisticians reserve the right to remove or alter any suggested poll.


Submission Guidelines:

<img12*0:img/drawing/19683_1095874738.jpg> Polls are placed on Main Street; try to submit polls that can involve the community as a whole.
 - For instance, submitting a poll about school is not as likely to be chosen, as many members are not students.

<img12*0:img/drawing/19683_1095874738.jpg> Some polls are better in your house, than on Main Street.
- For example, asking about car types is both regional and doesn't interest a large amount of members.

<img12*0:img/drawing/19683_1095874738.jpg> Try not to submit polls based on things in <forum:Elftown, Suggestions>.
- Asking about existing Elftown features is OK, but this isn't the place to submit new suggestions.

<img12*0:img/drawing/19683_1095874738.jpg> The polls are changed at the whim of the Statisticians, although generally they will be up at least two weeks.

Older submissions may be moved to SAP - Submissions 1 to prevent this page from being too large for easy editing; don't worry! All submissions are still reviewed and considered.

2011-07-16 [Mortified Penguin]: I must insist that <poll:77038> be placed on mainstreet. This tie has gone on for too long! I need a definitive answer!

2011-07-18 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Tie broken ;)

2011-12-14 [Pillowthief]: Not anymore. Biotches.

2011-12-14 [Pillowthief]: And what is a "penus" and why would I create a poll about it?

2011-12-14 [hanhepi]: "penus" is a bad way to spell "penis", so it serves the purpose up there of showing not only an example of obscene, but offensively bad spelling. :)

2011-12-14 [Pillowthief]: Ah. Makes sense.

2011-12-14 [hanhepi]: yeah, not too bad an answer since i just winged it, huh? lol

2012-03-07 [Joboy.Gamotia]: Question: Who is the youngest NBA MVP ever?
-Jeremy Lin
-Derrick Rose
-Dwayne Wade
-Carlos Boozer
-Kevin Durant

2012-03-07 [hanhepi]: No offense or anything, but that's really more of a quiz than a poll. A Poll is a question that looks for an opinion as an answer, not a definite fact.
Quiz: Who holds the record for RBIs?
- Hank Aaron*
- Ty Cobb
- Babe Ruth
- Barry Bonds
- Pete Rose

Poll: Which top record holder deserves to have an asterisk after their name for Most Home Runs?
-Barry Bonds
-Hank Aaron
-Willie Mays
-Sammy Sosa
-All of the above
-None of the above

(Sorry, baseball is the only other sport I could give you an example with. XD)

2012-04-05 [thedragon]: Name: [thedragon]

Question: If you were a Dragon, which kind would you be?
-Fire Dragon
-Ice Dragon
-Acid Dragon
-Poison Dragon
-Earth Dragon (no breath, just massively huge)
-Dark Dragon
-Light Dragon
-A combination of them all(domination!)
-I don't want to be a Dragon..... but I would like to own one! XD
-None of them! I hate Dragons >:P (Kill all Dragons!!)

2012-04-11 [Pillowthief]: That goes on the page, not in the comments... :/

2012-04-20 [kians mummy]: suggestion for whoever does the Elftown polls, wouldn't it be better that when you do a new poll, the names of the poll submitters are on the poll?

2012-04-20 [hanhepi]: does Elfpack do polls too?
if they do like we do on Elftown, there's a list (a couple of lists actually) that tell us who came up with the poll.

2012-04-20 [kians mummy]: but it will be better to publicly display it as a thank you to the submitter

2012-04-20 [Mortified Penguin]: As a poll submitter myself, I must insist we get no credit for the polls, since it would just take up space in the little poll area and we don't really need credit for something so trivial anyway. Just a badge and a sack of gold will do nicely as thanks for saving Elftown with our amazing poll ideas.

2012-04-20 [kians mummy]: Just for info, Elfpack does do polls

2012-04-21 [hanhepi]: they get a badge as a thank you, and their poll displayed.

2012-05-12 [Pillowthief]: No sack of gold? :/

2012-05-13 [Mortified Penguin]: What is this Jewry?

2014-09-11 [The Black Goat]: there, I helped


2014-09-11 [hanhepi]: Thanks!
