I've been noticing a TON of polls. While polls in and of themselves are not bad, a lot of them are duplicate topics. Somebody is sure to argue, "No, they're not!" but they actually are. For example, "Favorite RBYGSC Legendary," "Favorite Legendary," and "Ho-oh or Lugia?" essentially are the SAME poll. I'll give it a week to see how things look, and if nothing has changed, I may have to start locking/deleting topics.

Your friendly neighborhood mod,

~papersun :)

I don't want to argue or anything,

I think the ho-oh or lugia and Favorite RBYGSC Legendary are slightly different.

ho-oh or lugia is just whatever one you like more out of just them, the other is just all of legendaries.

Though I think "Favorite Legendary" should be locked, since the other one (RBYGSC one) has all of them and more.

You would be correct in that sense, but they still are QUITE similar. Also, we've got a thread entitled "The Best Type!" and one entitled, "Favorite Pokemon Type?" or something along those lines, and the poll question on both of those is pretty much the same.

Just try to keep a lid on duplicate polls, all right, kiddoes?

EDIT: Fixing the names of one of the threads.

[color=greenyellow]Yeah the type ones are getting annoying, maybe we should lock some of the other duplicate topics, I mean i've seen like 5 Favorite pokemon topics in different forums and tons of legendary polls.

And now that I think again about it maybe you should lock the "Ho-oh or Lugia" topic.

Because other members might get the idea of starting,

"Raikou, Entei or Suicune?"
"Mew or Mewtwo?"
"Articuno, Zapdos or Moltres?"
"Regice, Registeel or Regirock?"
"Groudon or Kyogre?"
"Rayquaza or Mewtwo?"
"Groudon, Kyogre or Rayquaza"
"Mew, Celebi or Jirachi?
"Jirachi or Deoxys?"
(You get the idea.) Just to get an extra post to their count.

I'll probably make a list of dupe topics and their locations later and edit it in.

EDIT: Here's what I found so far,

Name Discussions:

PKMN Name Meanings
REAL animals in pokemon.

Favorite Type:

What is your favorite type?
Favorite Pokemon Type

Your Very Own Pokemon:

New Pokemon/type combos
4th Generation of Pokemon
Your Very OWN!

Agreed. And since RL has kindly listed most of the polls out, then I hope no one will create any more NEW polls that actually are repeated topics. Thank you for your cooperation with us Mods :D

RL, thanks very much for compiling that list.

Everybody, if you are thinking of starting a poll, check this list first. If your topic is here, DON'T POST IT! And if you're not sure, PM a moderator and we'll let you know.

As a general caveat for everyone to remember, don't post any "What is the best Pokemon out of these?" polls. These pop up all the time and get boring really quickly.

You're welcome, and you can tell some topics aren't polls but they are duplicates.

yes, thank you for that list. Seeing as this is now an announcement for all to see, new duplicate topics, at least for me, will be deleted with extreme prejudice.

<center>UPDATE!!</center>

While duplicate polls are considered SPAM, so are completely unnessecary ones! I'm going to be posting a list of Official GSC Forum rules soon, and one of them will touch on polls. Thank you.

I really think you should delete the polls of legendarys. There just WAY to many of them!
