3. Discussion in Poll Threads
a) Try to stir up discussion!
Finally, try to stimulate some discussion related to your poll. Try to avoid creating a thread that goes something like...
"What is your favourite _____?" Where the answer could be a simple vote and a comment to say "My favourite is _____"
It's good to generate discussion, even in a poll thread. Try to ask "What is your favourite ______. And why?"
As a thread with lack of discussion will be a little unfullfilling. This is of course, if asking "why?" is totally unnecessary.
b ) Character v. Character Threads
Please avoid creating 'Character V. Character' threads.
The board no longer allows 'Character v. Character'/ 'A v. B' threads or polls. There are a few reasons why: The list of combinations are obviously endless and we don't want to get inundated by an endless list of threads like "Edward Elric v. Naruto" and so on. Another problem is that not everyone will know the characters involved in the 'battle'. For example, everyone will know "A" is Edward Elric since this is an FMA board, but not it may be that not everyone will know who "B" is. Overall, we don't allow "A or B" type threads any more unless we judge that the thread holds exceptional quality or potential, or the two characters involved are clear representatives of whatever the field or common feature is.
