Poll: Would you like to have two Wine polls every week?
  • 36% - Not really. 460
  • 63.2% - Yes! More!!! More polls!!! 807
  • 0.8% - I have something else to say in the comments section of this fine website. 10
1277 votes

Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Maybe random polls, lasting anywhere from 7 minutes to 7 weeks.
Drink more beer. It's good for you.

I'd like more polls and more Beehive cheese. Especially the cheese.

As long as it's not stripper polls. This is supposed to be a family entertainment type of a place.

I would actually like 5 Wine Polls every week.

Drinking wine is no excuse for not being able to come up with a Poll every week day.

I come to work every week day - so should they (or you).

so, some context: i don't want to speak entirely on their behalf, but i think the combined challenge of a limited subject matter along with a comparatively smaller turnout compelled my fellow writertypes to cut back on wine polls. (i realize one could argue the merit of that decision and OF COURSE they recognize that every audience member matters, but realistically we have to think of these things, you know.)

however, i am an enjoyer of wine - and really every other adult libation - so i can perhaps speak to the topic a little more.

i think i could also touch on other subjects we collectively adore: food, booze in its other forms, more food. i figured 2 per week is a good start.

and it looks like there's some support behind the idear, so that's exciting!

Not sure if you should post that? This slightly-nsfw-flowchart will help.

Can we limit posts to those that have purchased on WW?
The spillover is sometimes a bit much, especially when they aren't happy with the number of polls to troll.

no, i fear we probably couldn't do that.

... and i don't think we'd want to. our forums are meant to be more inclusive than that. everyone is invited to participate in reindeer games, provided they stick to our posting guidelines.

sigh,
just wishful thinking actually and not really expecting it would happen. It's just all the "will it work with a mac" comments...

ah, yes, speaking as someone who saw those on a daily basis, i can assure you you're not the only one with gritted teeth!


i should also mention while i'm in hur, this is a fine place to drop some suggestions for poll topics/questions!

So long as its a Mercurian week, yes.

2013: 66 bottles, 2012: 91 bottles, 2011: 92 bottles, 2010: 74 bottles, 2009: 30 bottles, 2008: 3 bottles My CT

Until woot sells boxes of quality Thunderbird, I'm not buying from wine-woot! However, I love trolling with the snooty winers.
Try a new microbrew this week! Drop the wine glass and pull out a beer mug. Pour in a nice IPA, Porter, Lager or whatever... Enjoy and embrace the hop.

My vote, too. If I can drink wooty wine and get to work, the wooty poll maker can make up polls and drink the wine if he/she/it wants to. But just be sure that the new polls are here.
It's not like any of woot's polls make sense every day.

Every day you have a poll is a day I'll visit. Otherwise, it's once a week for me.
