    Whenever I can put them up unless somebody wants to start new games will polls.

    It appears that I am the only one who can add new polls to existing threads.

    Can't you change so you can add polls to threads? :p
    Would be a lot easier for many people..
    Once I had to delete a thread because I forgot to add the poll :p

    He can't. Unless you're the thread creator, only the administrator can add a poll to the thread. Built in vbulletin restriction, and I'm 99% sure he can't delegate that power out.

    Probably 3 lifetime, but perhaps yearly or 6 months. I suppose it might conceivably seem like a restrictively small number, but that doesn't take into account how infrequent these things are actually created.

    Going to start adding polls to forum games today. It may take a few days to a week or so to finish.

    So each forum game will have their own poll to vote on whether others will want it to stay or not? Hm ok, but let us not create a 'mob mentallity' in here. Because once the MOB gets in they are impossible to remove! :p

    yea I don't get the joke either so that isn't very nice. :/

    i added polls to my own threads.

    few other threads need polls added still but looks good so far. need more people to vote on them ofc.

    Yes, a few games still need polls. Those are mostly game-related, however, so not sure whether to add many polls for them because they will stay.

    seems like most of the threads are just being voted up to stay by most the forum gamers.

    Don't know if other threads are just being closed and I didn't notice or if this is intentional by the gamers.

    Shouldn't there be a thread or something where the games that have 10s for stay or go are recorded?

    For anyone questioning why "You know you are on GameOgre too much..." is closed. Is because I closed it. I thought the thread has had its limit broken by now.

    It was never a game. I intended for it to be at the start, but that didn't happen.

    Edit: Oh and this poll stuff isn't working in my opinion ogreman.

    Honestly it is NOT. Everyone who plays forum games almost always votes yes to keep it. I haven't seen any game where this disproves my statement (might be 1-2 but almost all of them are YES and on the internet...this never happens unless the public wants to keep it and it is seen as cheating the system)

    Idk.....We need more moderation from a 'middle man'. Someone who doesn't really get involved in these sorta things and understands the focus of a game. It needs better judgement from people who don't play forum games really (not saying like myself because I used to play forum games as you know, but then I strayed away from them)

    Not to be harsh or anything. Just need to clear this section a bit imo to like....1 page of active threads. No more....That sounds fine to me and limits how much people can post in this area to gain points/posts.

    I actually agree with Ichigo.. Almost every forum game is gonna stay if if continues like this. Some of the threads aren't even active and yet they got more yes votes then no votes. That's pretty weird.
