THIS IS A UPCOMING POLL ALERT - FOR DISCUSSION ON THE ISSUE PLEASE USE THE APPROPRIATE THREAD Im thinking that the best way to handle polls on major issues is to first post an alert ahead of time, to let our team know that a poll is coming soon, so that folks have a chance to read the threads, conduct tests, do research, engage in discussion etc. I will try to do this prior to every poll. There has already been substantial discussion on this issue and we have to decide soon. Future polls will have more advance notice. Poll: What Shall We Tech Next? Posts on this thread should be limited to: 1. Ideas for the Wording of the Poll 2. Ideas for the Choices on the Poll 3. Ideas for how long the poll should stay open 4. Ideas for the Date the poll should be posted 5. Opposition to polling the issue (simple yes or no with reasons if necessary) 6. Approval of polling the issue (simple yes or no with reasons if necessary) 7. 's (or turnplayer's) warning that poll must be posted immediately FOR ALL OTHER ISSUES, USE THE APPROPRIATE THREAD Please note that Approval or Opposition to the poll will not necessarily affect whether the poll is posted. Appropriate Thread for Discussion: Leonardo's Workshop (The Tech Thread) If the poll is due and I am unavailable to post it will decide to post (or not post the poll). We currently have our research set to Aesthetics, however, the tech slider is set to 0%, while we build up gold (for research and other reasons). There is a great deal of discussion and debate over what tech we will actually go for next, so a poll MAY be needed.
