    As you can see in the pics of turn 45, the TMS Enterprise can't go further eastwards in safe waters.

    So we need to decide, whether it will go on a suicide mission, or continues on coastal exploration on the eastern side of our continent.

    I think it's unlikely that there is more land that far north so my vote is for further coastal exploration. We might find a safe passage.

    Bad poll. There was no discussion and there is not an "other" option, even though there are other options.
    I would either go North a turn in the shallow water, or follow the shallow water South to find out what's down there.

    I agree. Follow the shallow water south, and maybe suicide from there.

    Yeah. I agree with the others. I don't want to send out suicide ships until we meet the other civ on our continent. Even then, I'd like to get a ship to circumnavigate our continent to show us the options for our Dromon attacks.

    Ahh, I am sorry if it does not meet your expectations. Maybe anybody (other than me) could initiate such things. Maybe it would be better then. :rolleyes:

    You guys are free to make proposals other than those in the poll and argue about it. That is no problem for me.

    I am playing the game and get a hint every now and then of which I have to make something. and if I would not initiate the one or the other discussion/poll, I would have to decide most things of my own, which surely also would be criticized. :(

    I'm not saying you're playing the game wrong or are approaching your role in the game in the wrong way, I'm just saying this is a bad poll, as there was no specific discussion. The results of the poll would be an "on the fly" decision of the voters.

    People put up bad polls all the time. They seem to be more common than good polls. I always try to point them out, as normally they are easily corrected the next time.

    But we DO need more participation from everyone. It doesn't take much to start a discussion, or to join in. The saves have been moving really slowly lately. We've had time for planning. Our team leader may want to focus on starting these discussions. It's not a good idea to put all this weight on the turn player, as I've mentioned before.

    Each team now gets 30 hours added to their time clock each turn. There is now need to rush. We have 96 hours banked already, so if we need to take a day or two for a discussion, we have the time factor covered.

    If the discussion in a poll thread indicates that somethig completely different is wanted, this fact will of cause be considered in the game.

    Personally, I don't see anything wrong with the poll. The question itself encourages discussion and obviously if someone things another option is better they should just state so.
