    I am curious about the many opinions that may exist on this subject.

    :D

    Btw... I hate that we cannot tell who is replying to who around here. Kelmo, can you ask the powers that be, if that can be coded in somehow? :confused:
     
  5. Make them use one of their SP character names.

  6. Most people will click the last YES. This is just POLL behavior.

    Already on it. Check here.

    I will mention it in Staff Forums when I get home.
     
  8. I've always disliked that about VB myself, but there are a couple of small workarounds that I have found to partially work, sort of. :)

    The first option is to quote the post that you're responding to, so that the poster's name is linked. That can be cumbersome though, so I went looking for something else.

    If you go to User CP/Settings & Options/Edit Options and then scroll down to Thread Display Options/Thread Display Mode, you can select Hybrid from the dropdown menu there. Click Save Changes at the bottom, and give it a try.

    It's...different, but at least it gives you a 'tree' to refer back to, when you're trying to figure out who is saying what to whom. :)

    Best I've been able to come up with, so far.

    Polls annoy me. They are too often used in determining the best course to take when often what the "majority" wants has nothing to do with what is best.

    Blue yes is winning! This means that my poll proves that blue is superior to red!

    *sticks tongue out at WyRm even though he is not around to see*

    :p
