About[edit]

On Sunday, May 23, 2010, a proposal concerning several changes in our current main page was accepted by the community and passed. This proposal can be viewed here.

One point this proposal addressed was the creation of a Poll Committee, a selected group of users to create and select polls to feature on the main page. The members of this committee are meant to be selected by a person in charge of the committee, the Poll Committee Chairperson, who shall be elected by the community.

The polls are usually swapped every two weeks on Sunday at around 3:00 P.M. EDT.
