    Hello, as promised your votes are in.  This doesn't mean you still can't vote, the great thing about polls, they can always be updated.  For more clarification, the voting is here; … The-Forums

    On an average, we are working 37 hubbers who participated.

    Thank you all for participating. big_smile

    This is just a overview of the variables, if you need more information, the above hub will help.

    So here's what you voted big_smile

    1) 79% of voters enjoy the forums, the rest do not. Showing 21% do not.

    2) 41% of voters spend less than hour in the forums, 27% tied with spending about 1 hour to a few hours, 37% tied spending either 5 hours or most of the day. I think voters may have been conservative on this question and actually more spend longer periods of time.

    3) 92% of voters have never been banned while 8% have? 8%?

    4) 32% have absolutely no opinion about banning, 30% think the banning is fare, 22% feel it is too often and 16% of voters don't think it's strict enough.

    5) general hub hangout is favored as a topic by 44%, 25% prefer the chat threads, 11% enjoy analyzing hubs topics, 8% favor religious hubs, 6% favor announcement hubs and lastly a small split of 3% favor health and games.

    6) as far as posting in the forums, 68% believe it will increase their scores, 27% are not sure and 5% believe it will not.

    7) 42% enter the forums because someone else they like is there, 58% said they do not.

    8) not surprisingly, 94% of hubbers get to know other hubbers by their posts, yet 6% aren't learning a thing.

    9) observing and just watching the forums, 54% admitted to doing so, 38% do not watch, just post and 8% read other posts when they post themselves.

    10) when asked what would improve the forums, those that answered, voted 26% said nothing needs improvement, 16 % quoted that Denno should remain in his Scottish sheep attire, 13% voted we should all leave Tantrum alone, and let her be, 11% interestingly enough agreed to a thread that announces who has been banned and for how long, lastly 8% want more topic prompts.

    Thanks everyone for participating, it's always a process, but interesting to know where we stand.

      That sounds about right. Recently there has been an enormous fuss about a few people who were banned, so it sounds like it's happening all the time.  But sit down and count them up, and it really doesn't happen all that often - and when it does, it's the same people.

      And, of course, the people who flounced off in a huff after being banned wouldn't have been part of your sample.
