Carol's Polls
      #1592213 - 06/01/14 02:24 PM (67.232.31.137)

Don't ever remember seeing polls on TTOL before. I post on a college message board where polls can be created, and they can definitely be interesting.

I, for one, think this is a nice addition to TTOL, and they can be useful. Also I hope this encourages more people to register.

Nice that only registered people can vote... Not at all fair. What makes there opinions better is beyond me.

Because there is no other way to make sure someone doesn't vote more than once. And we are the ONLY forum that I know of that allows unregistered people to even participate at all. Register. It doesn't hurt.

Not fair? The OWNERS of the board make the decisions. Unlike CLOSED GROUP pages, anonymous people CAN and DO read here and can usually make a post, just like you did.

Anon - please do us a favor and reference any other forums/message boards where you can post without being registered. I have well over 30,000 posts in the message board world and TTOL is the ONLY board I've visited that does not require registration - which I think is a weak point, but my vote does not count.

I have always hated the fact you could comment without being a member.

Why is being registered make anything you say more valuable than unregisterd? Not sure what the all the negatives about this issue. I believe I have as much if not more info and opinions than lots of registered people. Especially those that vacation once a year, as opposed to us who spend months on Island and have been for many years. The only people that have perhaps more than us, is those that live on Island. But a vacation for a week or two does not make you better... That's my opinion.

I don't know that anyone implied or indicated an anon opinion was more or less valuable than a registered opinion. As charlieh indicated, MOST other boards (of any and all types) require registration, some even to just read.

I happen to be a member of a couple of other types of message boards and they all require registration to post. One board just recently went to "registration required" to post and the screaming prior to the change was loud. The reason for going to a registration requirement was due to anon posters using multiple names, using IP masking programs and totally uncalled for personal attacks. The owner of the forum made the decision to require registration and guess what?? No personal attacks and the discussions are back to the topics of interest.

Totally a personal choice as to wheter to register or not but it does have "benefits".
