Polling inside the forum is actually good. Why? Because it puts to rest the hyperbole about what's popular and what's not popular. It worked great in beta when someone would light off a conspiracy of thought.. and a poll would show that they were completely full of bantha poop.
Ya. They were great because they told the real story of what the community wanted. LOL ... I had a whole spreadsheet ready to rock using SurveyMonkey too. I hope this is brought back as a regular feature.
What the results thus far tell me is that the community wants more of what Bioware does best - that which got them here starting with the KOTOR franchise.
