How about this:


The people running the forums don’t want to support them.  They really don’t need a reason why.

Then that’s what they should say.
I’d accept that as an answer.

Hehe, I was kind of thinking before I even opened this thread to read it, sometimes the best answer is the one parents have been using for countless generations (as inscribed in Egyptian hieroglyphics)  “Because I said so!” Course, earlier man said it better even: “why…” “thunk” (insert picture with Mec4D’s chars here) ;p

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.

ROFL. I just got a mental picture of a caveman hitting the wife over the head and then dragging her by her hair like in the cartoons.

In Chohole’s case, it’s her dragging himself.  grin

It would be like a poll questioning which is worse; infighting or inbreeding… One leads to broken bones and black eyes, while the other leads to light brain damage.

Or worse polls. It would be fun in the beginning, but then it all starts, and Richard will need to pull out the club.

This might be true if people had not created any polls, but once polls were created and then admins/mods deleted them, an explanation was rhetorically necessary and common courtesy to boot.  And since we aren’t 6 anymore, a “because we said so” just doesn’t cut it.

Can’t see the big deal.

DAZ never had user polls before, so why start now. There’s plenty of other places where you can start a poll and then link to them.

Why would anyone take offence about such a trivial matter, it now feels to me that people are looking for things to be angry about.

Thats’s my personal view.

There is nothing wrong with asking why polls aren’t allowed.  Just because one asks doesn’t mean one is angry or that he or she is looking for things to complain about.  In fact, it seem to me some are merely surprised that a feature that they liked, that worked (when so many other things did not)  was suddenly taken away.  It’s a fair question.  It doesn’t really matter that is was not allowed before.  After all, DAZ migrated their entire website here primarily to do things differently because the other software was outdated, gerry-rigged to the point of inefficiency, and limited future expansion.  So I can see people expressing their desires and hopes for the new site.
