Some player-created polls have brought the yellow text in. I'd like to see polls from staff periodically.

Doesn't seem to fit with BWs style though on the other hand. They're pretty shy about open-ended communications.

They have this ability (in-game polls). They used them quite extensively in beta. I think this would be a fantastic way to get feedback.
All warfare is based on deception. Attack him where he is unprepared, appear where you are not expected. If his forces are united, separate them. If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near. A leader leads by example not by force.

OP has made this thread for no other reason other than derailing it herself in order to make yet another dig at the subscriber gift...

I do not think this is the idea behind it. Moderators ask question in forums to give everyone an idea they actually care what people think or want. Polls on the other hand could be seen as binding. Someone may as one day about that pool from month ago and what is being done to implement the idea that won the day.

Very bad idea imo, besides question or pool, what's the difference? Also implementing pool into the software behind forum may actually require an effort.

Then don't feed him. You don't need to reply to this OP.

I didn't mind the gift myself, but it's kinda like your favorite restaurant giving you a $5 gift card for your next visit...it's self serving. Kind? Sure. Does it make me feel valuable? No.

I imagine the daily questions are here to show more interaction with the community but really the questions have become a bit lame. It use to be a yellow post appeared on a thread and it would gain 100 extra post in an hour. Now I don't even bother checking the question of the day.

I agree with the poll. I really want to get my species suggestions over the only issue I can see is how many polls will they have and would a poll like what is the next species, planet, class or speeder cause people to read into the poll they are working on this and will listen to the players. When BW see it as just a bit of fun and have no action to plan it.

I knew any thread started by you was just another troll thread about either Treek or the 500 CC award.

Not entirely true, we did pick the Party Jawa. BW used to take polls semi-regularly before launch and that input was supposed to matter to some extent. They're claiming to listen to customer feedback in other regards of the game. They've said they're going to ask us what species we want next out of 3, and it'll be Torgruta, which the community has also been asking for. I agree with you to the extent that polls shouldn't be the ultimate deciding factor on anything too big, but it would be a nice addition to provide more accurate feedback. As well as get a better feel for what direction BW is going.

Edit- We were also polled on how we would like our content/ expansions delivered as well. Monthly polls would probably be a bit more realistic though.
