I was 'avin a shufty, like, at a few threads containing polls - and it struck me that if I compared the number of people that viewed the thread with the number of people that particpated in the poll, there's was nearly always a huuuuuge difference.

Why is that?
I s'pose if the poll was about something quite specific ( "If your name is Larry, have you had an embarrassing disease?" ) I could understand - but a lot of the polls are quite general ( "Did Charlie Parker play the saxophone?" ).

So I thought I'd ask...

Regards,

I win, with 100%. I want my prize. Also, who the hell is Charlie Parker?

Lawrence.

Crawlers, spiders and the like browse the threads...but can't vote.
Also, people poke their heads back 'round the door to see how the votes are going - more return visits clocking up the views but not attached to votes.
Sadly, I'm too young to vote.

I would answer that no one knows I'm here...but then I would give myself away.

There are some polls that are like a traffic accident...they attract gawkers. Imagine the stripper song thread turned into a poll (which would be fitting :TGNCHK:).

Why is there a thread about people from Poland in a tuba forum? I'm reporting this to the moderators.
And who in the hell is Rootytootoot?

My name's John, and I'm a pollaholic. It's been nine months since my last . . . . Oh crap I just fell off the wagon. Way to go Stephen. You tricked me into checking that last one. What time's the next meeting? Are there any other friends of George G* on SOTW?

Go ahead, it's their bingo night, noone's listening.

I think someone may have called prospective members "crawlers, spiders and the like" earlier in this thread. Seems unnecessarily frank. I suppose that would mean that actual members are (at best) "ex crawlers, spiders and the like".. :mrgreen:

Surely, you jest.
Florrie, possibly?

I prefer being called Rooty to Tootsie. Marty sometimes refers to me a Tootsie. He's a naughty one, that martysax.

I still seeming to be winning the poll poll.
