I think there can be some useful polls made here I was thinking about a poll asking what percentage of lights a person has of various battery types/chemistries like 1.5v variants vs 3.7v ones. What is the most used lumens in lights and how often do you use a headlamp vs a flashlight and how often you use a cell phone for lighting vs flashlights, which keychain light type do you use and so on. A poll would be a lot more interesting as many people aren't interested in taking the time to post what their choices but would quickly click a few buttons in a poll and then be encouraged to see what everyone else says in the poll and thread. My alkaline vs other type cell usage and leakage poll and thread was pretty fun and interesting to see comments and also educational to people who didn't know the risks of using alkalines vs other chemistries and battery choices.I'm not sure we got a whole lot out of the polls in the sense that this type of board may be difficult to create polls. From what I've been seeing these days, the owner is doing other things rather than devoting a lot of time fixing stuff on CPF as he so masterfully did after the sale. For that matter, moderators in general have been taking quite a bit of time off from my perspective. Anyone seen Archimedes? Christmas Eve day at one time there were listed 12 members on. Christmas day 11. Usually we have over 20.
