    Default Should we make it longer time period to add a poll?

    You can only add a poll to a thread within 5 minutes of posting the thread.
    This is a stupid rule and we should add another 5-10 minutes.

    or leave it as it is to prevent more poll threads.

    This^^^^

    Five minutes is just enough time to post a poll if you've thought it out before actually clicking on the post button. Even totally irrelevant polls have been created in the time limit.
    Wow, 12 step meetings at Coachella, who knew? SOBERCHELLA.COM

    I'm a reasonable man, get off my case....

    Why is this a thread?

    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    If anything, I think it is more likely that irrelevant polls will be created, because good, thoughtful polls take time.

    I just wish that polls weren't bumped unless there was an actual text response

    the answer is simple. certain veterans of this board should quit posting dipshit polls and/or starting completely uninteresting threads in the first place. you fucking know better. stop fawning for attention, it's pathetic.

    and i'm not talking about the op of this asinine poll either.

    (on the other hand, I also agree with Courtney's suggestion)

    I'm thinking dude should drink less beer. At least until he figures out sentence syntax.

    If you make a poll, you buy a beer. Simple as that.
