    Should polls close automatically after a year??

    Most of those polls popping up lately have already exceeded their best before date and suck out the air of polls from the present. Do you think polls should close automatically after at least a year to prevent misusage?
    Maybe Marzo as an archenemy was the biggest thing to happen to Mekaneck, but as far as Marzo was concerned...it was Tuesday.

    Yes! I love polls, but digging up these oldies is a bit pointless I think. I think they sjouke remain available to view though.
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    yeah, the old ones do get a bit confusing.....I'll be like sweet a new poll....then I'll see the date and be like ***! Don't get why people would drudge up outdated polls unless they're not realizing they're outdated........in which case this would solve that!

    Meh, sometimes the polls get outdated and are only applicable for particualr window of time.

    I haven't done one in a while, but the next time I do I will likely set an ending date on it.
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    Whoever is digging up the old polls should read first, then vote, It's stupid to vote on something so old and out of date. But Whatever on the poll closings, people should just stop dredging the pond and make new up to date polls instead. I'm sure that's not against the rules since the polls would be so different.
    Recent....Flogg
    Coming....
    Wanted....Entrapa, Light Hope, (A real) Filmation Hordak & Clawful
    Considering....
    Needed....Dragstor

    Oh man, did I forget to use these [sarcasm][/sarcasm] again? Sorry....

    I voted yes. Same here, I log in and I'm like WOW new polls, just to see it's like "Will He-Ro be released" or "What was your favite SDCC reveal in 2009".....All polls are genuinly fun, infomrative and important....but so many are well out dated. I think they should be locked after a certain period of time, but still viewable of course.
