POLL DESCRIPTION

I thought I'd get some feedback on how long I should keep these poll questions open.

1 day

Works well for those who visit daily - might encourage more people to visit more often?

2 days

Works well for those who visit every other day...

3 days

Long enough so that a poll usually covers at least one weekday.

5 days

Time enough for almost anyone to cast a vote, but maybe by the time it's done everybody's forgotten about the poll...

1 week

Works well for those people who only visit on Mondays?

1 month

An entire month gives people plenty of time to vote.

indefinitely

Why close the questions? (Unless it's a contest or something time-based...)
