Non-Premiums Creating Polls?

I think this would be a great thing to be open to everyone. It makes any contest done, especially the Desert Island ones in B&C, a lot easier. I know when I initially wanted to do the 2nd contest, I thought I'd be able to post the new threads with polls, when I found out I couldn't, Axver or another premium member had to step up and do it. It was a big inconvenience for everyone, myself including, and I hope that doesn't happen for anyone else again. What do you think about it?

This is one I agree should be available to everyone. To me posting polls pretty much falls under basic use of a message board.

I'd be in favour of it.

Absolutely not. Non-premium users would abuse this feature.

It's true. I would abuse this feature completely.

My first poll would ask what kinds of polls I should make.

I dunno...I think that a non-premium account should really only be able to read & post. All the extra stuff would be incentive to become premium. Individually, things like PMs, the 15-second rule, polls, etc., aren't a huge thing...it seems like no big deal to make one a free feature. But when you take one or two off, there's much less incentive to become a premium member. Would anyone join if the only benefits left were the 15-second rule and seeing who ignores you? It's the whole bloc of PMs, 15-second rule, polls, seeing profiles, and whatever else, that would make someone think about it.

Dude, when I was in high school & college, I was poor. Now that I'm paying an exorbitant Washington, DC rent and other crap, I'm still poor. But I don't think $18 bucks--for an entire year--is such a bad deal if you're interested in either the extra features or in supporting a site you like. I made $18 in middle school after delivering newspapers for like two days. It's the same cost as a magazine subscription---not too bad. It's the same cost as going out to eat once---really not so bad. If someone has three or more posts a day, likes a site, and wants a couple of extra features, it's not really a bad deal.

Perhaps we should conduct a poll

With regards to membership, I know we have allot of younger members who do not have Credit Cards available as well.

I forget, are there other ways of paying for a membership?

Non-premiums getting all the premium perks with having to pay for them?

Sure.

Not allowing polls is the one feature that can hurt the overall quality board, rather than just the people who aren't premium.

I understand what you mean, but I think polls are something that is more necessary for every member....like LMP said, if someone needed to take Axver's place in the Desert Island lists (for example...) it would be much more conveniant. And there are still a lot of benefits of being premium.
