We want to count votes!!! @dfox

    that was already asked several times a long time ago. very few actually want dumb "<thing> vs <other thing>" polls and resulting holy wars.

    Easy: https://devrant.com/rules

    I love to speculate about it but i'm happy it's not on devrant. But often when I see it I love it and it doesn't matter who's right because I'm a bad man.

    BTW, here a poll for ya:

    97% of the smart people love python according to experts

    Happy? :)

    @asgs ofcourse 😁 That's how the 97% works 😁 97 is the new 13 😂 So beware every Friday the 97th

    Polls have always been an interesting idea. I think one reason we didn’t add them was because it seemed like they could get very repetitive with the same questions over and over.

    I can create a bot to do that but it won't make sense replying to poll in order to vote.

    No idea how it ties in with the rules but couldn't you achieve a similar thing by commenting on a question with possible poll answers and counting votes on those comments? Might be considered skewing users' overall vote counts though

    @theabbie meh, you could do it anyway and you'll see if it doesn't make sense. Every reply could contain the current status or even a graph with expectation line to end of the week or smth. Would be a total art / challenge to make this actually cool / appreciated

    Because you’ll all start fights about what language is better than what others, what package is better, what framework is better and yea. Cba with that fam
