What's happened to the quick poll? Has it been "supprimé" for being too frivolous? But many of them are far from frivolous - the most recent was about how long to keep translated files.
Please bring it back - if you've run out of ideas, I've got some.
Regards,
Jenny.

Second the vote to bring it back Jul 10, 2007

I was wondering this myself, just hadn't gotten around to posting about it.

I like the polls. What happened?

Maybe there are no more poll suggestions? Jul 10, 2007

Hi!

I like them too.

If you've got new suggestions, just tell them to the staff. Maybe they were just run out of them.

The Quick Polls are Back Jul 10, 2007

About an hour ago the page was empty, but now I see them all. Have you tried opening the page recently? At least it works for me (via "Community" -> "Quick polls").

Cheers,
Susanne

Not on ProZ.com homepage Jul 10, 2007

Today's poll used to be in a column on the righthand side of
Proz.com home - can't see it now.

Please bring it back!

Lucky you, if you can see them. They're still vanished into thin air!
Please Proz.com-staff, bring them back!

Please use the top menu Jul 10, 2007

I don't know why the Quick Poll link is not on the homepage (at the moment?!), but you should certainly be able to access the page via the menu on the top of each ProZ.com page. Just hold the mouse over the tab "Community", click "Quick polls" in the dropdown menu, and the page should open as usual. If not so, please submit a support ticket.

I hope it works

Susanne

QPA being formed Jul 10, 2007

Thank you Ryancolm, John, Rosa, and everyone. Love the new poll, especially n/a.
I, too, had become a quick poll addict.
I've decided to form QPA - Quick Polls Anonymous - for mutual support. The first meeting is at 7:30 pm in the Penzance Salvation Army Hall, Queen Street, this Thursday. Bring your own poll. For those embarrassed at making introductions (see latest Proz translation contest), only your first name need be used.
"My name's Jenny and I'm a pollaholic. Last week I spent 3 hours searching the Web for polls, and forgot to give my children their supper. Then ..."
Love, Jenny.

Do you get to take your own beer to alcoholics anonymous?
Leave your poll outside, surely

Possibly in a brown paper bag, hidden under a park bench, so you can go fetch it after the meeting....
