    Vote #1: Poll Choice Limits

    The first vote, is, fittingly, on votes.

    There's been a bit of a debate over the last few days if the current limit of 10 choices to a poll is enough. I feel it is, and I do believe it will be for MOST cases; however, as I am on the fence on this situation, and I want the forums to have a little more of a community voice, I'm putting it up for you guys to decide.

    So, simply put... do you think the vote choice limit should be changed, and if so, what to?

    Note that you all get a week from this post to vote. So it's up to you folks to do your part!

    10 is most definitely too few.

    Raise it to 20? 25?

    Well, that's what the whole point of this thread (and vote) is about. When we have a clear community consensus, that's what I'll go with.

    So then pick 20 or 25, and vote for it.

    The poll IS at the top of the topic, isn't it?

    I'm waiting to see what other people think before making a (non-retractable?) vote. Don't be so pushy. :P

    I voted for 30. It should be enough to make a large poll like "What's your favorite Dead Apostle Ancestor", and anything longer than that must be able to be shortened.

    Yeah... looking into this, it's definitely not something you can do in stock vBulletin 4. Someone would need to make a mod for it.

    I'll look for one soon.

    I voted for 30 as well. It seems reasonable enough.

    Though, I don't really see the need to limit it at all, unless being able to create unlimited poll options is a gateway for crashing the forum or something.

    Hmm, 30 sounds reasonable but I'm voting for 40 just in case we ever need that many, polls that involve the entirety of the Nasuverse could have as many options if it's something like "favorite female character".

    Yeah, I was gonna go with 20/25 as I mentioned in the other thread but 30 seems better (as if we include Extra Servants in the 'Favorite Servant' thread we'd betting at the very least 27 or 28 different Servants). But I'm gonna hold out to look at other peoples votes. But yeah, I don't like for things to be so close to the limit so I'd rather do something like rockxas says and do 40. And, as he said, there are some threads that can reach that limit quite easily (if we decide not to do the yearly tourney of favorite characters but do one for all time).

    Hmm, so, what will you do if, for example, 5 people vote for 10, 4 people vote for 45 and 4 vote for 50? Will you leave it at 10 on the grounds that that was the "majority" vote, or will you increase it on the basis that most people clearly wanted it increased?

    Basically, I will vote for whatever the highest number that can win is, because I see no good reason to limit it. If people don't like polls with 40 options, then they don't have to vote in it....

    Isn't that the case with every poll though?

    @OP
    Is there any reason to leave it at 10? Are we saving bandwidth or something?

    From what I understand he thinks 35 choice polls might intimidate people and might prevent more damaging spam (for instance if someone kept making HUGE polls with tons of text and all kinds of shit in an attempt to crash your browser or something).

    Yes, of course it is. Indeed, it's the same with our electoral system....

    But, that doesn't make it a good way of deciding. It seems silly to me that, if there is a clear consensus to increase it (e.g. 10 getting only 20% of the vote) it should stay the same just because 10 got a majority.

    @OP

    No, not really.

    Well, the first is that person's problem, really (and can be dealt with by them either complaining in the thread or just not voting), and the second seems a) highly unlikely and b) easily fixable. Limiting the number of poll options to 10 (thereby causing certain people a lot of problems) just because one or two might get "intimidated" by more options seems totally absurd to me.

    I voted for 35, because although there are some huge polls, in my opinion more options than that can be included on the "other" option.

    Why is there even a limit? What is the big deal?

    Just let people make their own polls with as many options as they prefer. It's not like the forums are going to come crashing down as a result.

    Honestly, this seems pretty unnecessary to me.
