4. As silly as some of the polls have been on this site, why not go ahead and suggest some and get some free time?

I don't but I enjoy responding to the polls each day. It is also very interesting to see the results at the end.

Many polls are poorly written to the point of being illogical. Some polls are biased to get an intended result.
Example: what is you favorite fruit?
A) grapes
B) broccoli
C) celery
D) Pencil erasers
And answer D) grapes wins, therefore I conclude that people prefer grapes over apples, bananas, or oranges. A rather gross example; most are more subtle but just as flawed.

4 and 6. Sometimes I actually want to learn things. Hence polls on minimum board size, number of units which can be handled and minimum size of a base.

And answer D) grapes wins

Hate to be nit-picky – but D was Pencil Erasers.

Now, what we really need to know is what fruit shape pencil eraser is the favourite

A) orange
B) Phyliss
C) Dragon fruit
D) Pencil erasers
