10 = its the reason I check the page!
2= meh
No one should vote 1 because that means no interest whatsoever!

Deucey Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2019 1:36 p.m. PST

I'm a 10 by the way!

2- If Bill didn't post news stories about them, I wouldn't even know we had them.

Texas Jack08 Aug 2019 1:58 p.m. PST

It varies depending on the subject, so I reckon a 5 will do. Some of them are fun.

Like TGerritson a 2, I consider them for the most part to be a silly wast of space and time. I really dislike the attempts to use them to justify many of the folders or statements that they represent the views of some sort of significant majority since they rarely get treated "scientifically"

All these low votes came within an hour of my posing the question!

Me thinks the lady doth protest too much!

8 It is the second thing I check every morning (after the DH)

I only look if I am interested in the subject when Bill posts about it.
I usually disagree with the results, but hey, that's just me!
Make mine a 3.

2. Actually, maybe as high as 7 or 8 for something (a) actually wargaming-related and (b) not altogether a matter of taste. But most polls are strictly opinion. And for the polls that keep cropping up asking about bands and non-military music, even 1 would be too high a score. They lower my overall opinion of TMP.

Live and die by them

Ok, not really, but some are fun to see how your opinion stacks up.

I like polls.


khanscom08 Aug 2019 4:31 p.m. PST

Is this another poll?

Old Contemptible08 Aug 2019 4:40 p.m. PST

A poll about polls.


DisasterWargamer Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2019 5:07 p.m. PST

9 for the history/gaming ones
0 for the other ones

Frederick Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2019 5:31 p.m. PST

Pretty much 10

Thresher01 Supporting Member of TMP08 Aug 2019 5:40 p.m. PST

2 – 3, depending……

Pictors Studio08 Aug 2019 6:28 p.m. PST

I'm with etotheipi. If a poll doesn't turn out the way I want I lose sleep. Sometimes for weeks at a time.

RudyNelson08 Aug 2019 6:49 p.m. PST

Not much, but I will comment on the results.

I used to be a 10, and made a point of voting on all of them (even if it was "no opinion"), but the proliferation of multi-round polls, combined with the sheer volume we've had for the past year or so, has made me lose interest. Now I generally don't even look at any polls with multiple rounds, and if there are a bunch of them I don't bother weeding through them to find the rest.

As an obsession, 0.

Not at all.

10 – as a wargaming hipster I need to be on trend all the time and I use the polls to set my moral compass too.

Personal logo Parzival Supporting Member of TMP09 Aug 2019 6:42 a.m. PST

9 I'm very amused by them and participate in most. Plus, I submit them.

Polls? What Polls?

How "obsessed" am I with polls?

Id say "Stripper Level" obsessed…

I've always found Poles to be charming, hospitable people.

Additionally, poles are useful in fencing and many other rural practices.

The geographical poles, sadly becoming de-nuded of ice are useful in determining position.

TMP polls? Not really on the radar.
