Today's Poll......get rid of them

Todays one

Do you plan to spend Christmas at home or away this year?

I plan to stay at home

I plan to go away

I don't know

either get the poll right or don't bother, how about proper chances to answer like.

I don't celebrate christmas

or

I will be Working .

pesrsonally

I won't be celebrating Christmas and I will be working (well on-call)

most of the polls I have seen in the past are almost as banal and never do give proper options, lets take the person that thinks up the Polls and use them to help rid the website of the multitude of errors on it.

Yes the are often flawed but I cannot say they bother me that much

Like the two responses so far, I don't pay any attention to the polls, in fact, I rarely even notice that they are there. There seems to be no point to them, but I don't really care.

Perhaps TA could set up a Poll to determine whether to keep the Polls! :¬)

They are just part of the enormous amount of clutter that mar so many TA pages.

Rather than adding and removing bits or a piecemeal basis TA really need a fundamental rethink looking at all parts of the interface and only keep the pieces that are actually helpful for users.

On the rare - very rare - occasion I answer the poll, I always look to see how many others have answered. It's usually a four-digit number. I wonder about that. Just how many TA members are there? Many millions!

It's obvious "nobody" pays attention to the polls ;-)

I am reminded to look at the poll only when mentioned in the forums. That has been twice now. The poll installer mistakes me for someone who cares!
