    "History" left first.

    I'm opting for a text-only banner. In that way, no one is going to use ad hominem, ad absurdum, ad misercordiam and most of all, reductio ad ridiculum over whose character we should put on the new banner.

    You might call me out for doing argumentum ad temperantiam but if people are going to like this, then an extreme measure is necessary.

    Where's the option to vote for something like a "Car Enthusiast Forum" banner, so that if anybody glances over your shoulder while you're browsing it doesn't immediately give away how super nerdy you are. Also, there should be an option to change everybody's avatar into manly pictures of guns.

    You'll still be called out as nerd depending on the type of people who like to glance at your computer screen. Why not something normal, like "Electronica Lovers Forum"? You'll surely be dismissed as a party-goer, then.

    Oho, you'll attract the suspicions of gun-control advocates and concerned parents in that way. Why not pictures of flowers instead?

    Because I'm from the South, so big engines and guns is a pretty sure fire way to communicate I AM A MAN AND I LIKE MANLY THINGS.

    I guess it wouldn't hurt if some of the guns were wearing football helmets, though.

    And I'm from the Southeast. Car enthusiasm here means you are either a jeepney driver, an auto mechanic or a yuppie bachelor. Guns here mean you want to go into the military or police life, or you are a 90s guy. Or a potential criminal.

    Why not put water sprinklers on them instead? You know, eco-friendly concerns.

    But you know it attracts a lot of potential market. And not everyone likes moemoe animu loli girls. At least we could present ourselves as an environmentally-conscious forum. You know, you have to please the target demand.

    I'm willing to compromise, as long as the environment can wear a football helmet.

    Well, we obviously can't duct tape the thing but we practically can't throw it away. You know, this isn't a case of "if you can't duct it, then fuck it."

    If you don't duct it, it's going to make a lot of noise.

    Maybe that's the reason Recyclopaths are making a lot of noise. Because we can't duct tape the thing.

    So. While I don't care about BL-tan's fate, I don't want text only. By process of elimination, I must select Image and Text.

    Now we have even more BL-tan alternatives, oderp.
    Yeah, the problem with this poll is that the winner depends on how many options there are. Someone who wants to keep BL-tan could set it up to have three options for getting rid of her and only one for keeping her, and vice-versa.

    And, honestly, I'm "uncomfortable" about having the forum represented by 55 pictures of Saber and Rin, so....

    This poll clearly shows BL is divided on the issue. I don't think it's possible to satisfy everyone with one change or the other.

    I'm using a Sakura banner right now, whileSaber and Rin don't even have banners submitted yet.

    At all.

    To begin with, most of the ideas for rotating banners have had suggestions that probably wouldn't allow for 5 pictures of them, let alone 55; I doubt 55 banners would even be submitted. Also, one of those ideas came from DP himself, so you already know that the mods aren't considering letting such an extreme scenario to occur.

    By worrying about something that isn't very likely to happen, you're doing something much worse than not voting for Sakura - you're not even giving her a chance.
