To me, the purpose of a forum such as this is to exchange information, and polls are just a form of that. I don't believe that forum supporters or gold members are inherently more or less likely than anyone else to ask useful poll questions. Allowing anyone to create polls may add to clutter, but you can always ignore the ones that you find frivolous or pointless.

I agree that only supporters should be allowed to... Consider it membership perk.

Yes, but not allowing non-supporters to create polls may be an incentive for them to support the forum.

Only forum supporters should be allowed to vote in this poll. :lol:



Jk, I think polls should be open to all.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

I don't think I ever figured this out, but I sent in money about two years ago for this forum, and I think that I should be a supporter, but my name has never been anything but black :cry:

Tony - you should send wxxyz a PM. I don't know if he is still involved in running things since the purchase, but back in the day he seemed to sometime have trouble correlating the donors with their forum name. (Of course, you are probably Tony Williams on both, but still - drop a note and see what he says).
