I say we get rid of the public voting feature. It's ridiculous to say the least. 99% of the polls started are by NON-members who won't be around after their free trial ends. They should not be given the ability to influence how the game is played by the rest of us who will have to deal with these changes long after these temporary players are gone. In the end, we usually have to come back here and vote for things to get changed back anyways.
1.) It's a waste of bandwidth.
2.) It's a waste of everyone's time (including & especially the programmer's)
3.) 99% of the polls are frivolous and juvenile (Make me president? Give me more nukes? Make Gold Coins free?... come on now)
4.) Most of these polls are either illegible or voted down anyways (or both).
Vote yes if you want to see an end to nonmembers deciding how your game should be played.
Vote no if you want to "giv me guld koinz n rul da kuntree."

We see a lot of sense in this vote. Cutting it out seems a little strong to start with. We will start with a partial limitation, forcing at least a week in the game and see if quality changes. If needed, we will move on and close the public voting.
