All warfare is based on deception 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

No.. I simply asked you to demonstrate your insistent claim that it is invalid.

From my perspective, the continued statistical stability of the poll demonstrates that you are wrong. You are right on theory, wrong on this particular context. If the numbers continued to wobble wildly all over the place, I would support your claim. But that is not the case here. I agree that the poll does not follow best practices, but that alone does not make it invalid.

There are polls taken that are geared towards certain subsets of voters, i.e. women, people of color or party affiliation. Do they then represent all voters? No they do not, they represent that certain subset of voters, much like this poll represents a certain subset of player/subscribers to this game.
My point was always that it was important to understand exactly what the poll could show and what it couldn't show. I have no idea why you are arguing with me about something that it seems we have the exact same opinion on.

I never said the poll in question was bad, I said I even filled it out myself... I really am not sure what problem you have with what I said, because as far as I can tell we both agree with each other 100%, in that the poll only shows the desires of a very small subset of the Subscribers and shouldn't be taken to mean anything more.

Glad to see the Class Story is crushing it so hard. Hopefully Bioware takes notice, although I highly doubt it.

Damn, you beat me to it, kind of . I was going to quote him and exclaim how we're getting a new Huttball map. And it will be on grass that resembles an American soccer field to add to the confusion about kicking the huttball. And everyone who kicks the huttball gets the title 'the Cheater', along with a scolding from Baron Deathmark. Wait, what is this thread about?

I said that there is no proof that the Poll represents the will of the Subscribers in general, you haven't brought up any proof. I can't prove a negative, nobody can.... however it seems you can't prove that it represents the will of all subscribers either... and the yellow post saying that polls on the forums aren't always a good indication of what the subscriber player base wants supports my view.

Actually, as has been pointed out multiple times in this topic, this would be a very flawed method of tracking customer preferences about future content. I spend a lot of time running dailies, but I don't want that to be a priority for development at all (to say nothing of the time spent idling or in queue or grinding in other ways). That's not to say this poll is perfect - it isn't - but your suggestion is going to be heavily skewed.

From the Yellow post it sounds like that's exactly what they do.

The poll is a fair and stable representation of what "subscribers" want. Again.. if you ran the same poll in a truly random sampling of true subscribers in game.. I fully expect the results would be similar (within normal uncertainty ranges of polls).
