It's a lot like elections. Only in the case of elections, polls have high participation and the results are flung around as though they were gospel fact. Then the election happens, and the pollsters wonder why their "infallible" result collapsed into so much dust. The reason? 20% of the electorate actually went out and voted for real.

When polls are conducted on a forum, your best hope is about the same. The results are a lot like an election. You can have 5,000 members ( yeah, if only ) and post a poll only to have 100 of them vote. Obviously this is far worse than the 20% for a real election, and it often results in the appearance of an elite few who determine the fate of many.

None of this changes the result though - in all honesty I don't want to invest the time in creating an account system only to later find out it becomes the #2 most removed body of code after release.

What if we make it part of the TOS for the site that they're not allowed to tell you what they decided to rip out of AFK in order to use AFK to their liking? :wink:

ROFL, Or you could just mark it as a patch to begin with, and then open a poll/topic about it too at least attempt to get a idea about how it would do. Watch how many people download it and if it looks like it'll be acceptable to include as stock then do so. I know that is how Overland was somewhat done but sometimes you just "miss". Starting it as a patch will allow people to who wish to port it to SmaugFUSS to do so without hunting all over the codebase. Also, like your SQL in 2.0 if it doesn’t turn out well, you could keep it as a patch and remove it from stock. Allowing people who want it to include it themselves.

Note: When I say patch, I mean Patch or Snippet :tongue:
