    Default These March Madness Polls Are Seriously Fucking Annoying

    Delete this crap please. Seriously. This is annoying and doesn't even have anything to do with music.

    I'm actually good with it. Voted even. It's relegated to the polls forum, so I don't see the issue.

    Well, if you use the What's New button--I'm legitimately amazed that you guys browse the forums any other way--every time somebody votes in a poll it gets bumped to the top of the results. So instead of seeing a bunch of threads that have recently been commented in, I see three threads that involve actual conversation and 10 polls that some dickhead just voted in.

    a valid point. I didn't actually open any of them to look at them. Holy shit, this is even more annoying now.

    Most polls are annoying, but these are ridiculous.

    I just looked at one. I don't really know what they have to do with anything. There's no real explanation.

    I think it's interesting to see how the Coachella message board demographics might be slightly different than the overall demographics for the festival, in terms of preferences. However, once the headliners and second-line bands are added into the mix, it's obvious that all these smaller bands are going to get dropped, and then it won't be very interesting.

    My pedantic objection to all of this is that we're not even in March yet.

    It may be annoying when 10 polls pop up at once but it's usually a great feature that keeps some polls from just falling off the face of the earth.

    Old polls don't really need to be bumped either IMO.

    If the site was more up to date like KTT's it would have a FB ticker-like feature on the top right that always refreshed the new posts irt :-P

    BTW, I've been bitching about polls being bumped for years and you other cocksuckers always acted like I was being ridiculous until now.

    Incidentally in case someone with access to the Admin CP is reading--yes, there is a way to disable the bump for a simple vote.

    Exactly. This is just over the top.

    For once I agree with xanman. It's an OK feature. In this case, it's massive abuse of a worthless poll that is the problem.

    Between wishlists, set-time projections, 'who ya gonna see', 'my top 10 ___day', I think we all have a pretty good idea of what the forum's taste is.

    Lock up this madness!
