Why Pools and Avatars?
The only pool should be like this:
Everybody over 18 (or 21): Do we need polls and avartars?
If we can proof the age, nearly everybody in this poll would say no, because this these things are useless kiddie stuff, no one need it.
Everybody remembers the time before VBulletin was updated, it was slower, but there was less shit that I have to load!

Stop Polls and Avatars!

I have Avatars already disabled(http://64.12.38.241/showthread.php?threadid=59350)!
How can I disable pools?!

Pools? Polls cannot be disabled by users. If they are turned off no one can see them. They are no more annoying than useless threads.

Why don't we disable posts as well? Do they annoy you ? :)

i can't get avatars to work...i'd kinda have to try 'em out first
polls are alright with me but do they have to be so redundant? There are copies of the avatar poll all over the place, anything can be done about that?

The avatar pools are all (I thing) from chev, one of the mods, that is not the problem I thing (Next time he shoult declare all these pools as sticky!). I hate stuff like in the pools today in the Nullsoft Propaganda Forum (http://64.12.38.241/forumdisplay.php?forumid=80) !

That is nothing but biased BS.


You're saying that everyone that is even a day under 18/21 has no differientiating power between art and expression.
I personally feel that avatars are useful to see what the person is like by seeing their artistic preference on their avatar.

Like it was said before, if you don't like them, TURN THEM OFF!

Nothing wrong with polls, as long as they're serious.
Nothing wrong about pools either, as long as you have good company in them. :D
