Good point, but if only 2 people vote yes then it would seem like a bad idea. If 15 people vote yes then it would seem like a good idea. The results of the poll will therefore serve the purpose of finding out if enough people are interested or not.
I guess it's only the "no" option that's kind of redundant. But the poll itself isn't a waste of time...
I haven't voted in the poll because I think it is a good idea but don't have the time to contribute myself at the moment. Between a full time job, a girlfriend, and part time Uni studying... I wouldn't be able to fit it in.
But generally I do like the idea of the competitions.
Maybe it would help if you went ahead and posted guide lines for the competition or maybe just an idea of the structure. RE seems like a pretty broad category to me. Its like saying "should we have sandwiches?", what kind of sandwiches? Sorry for the stupid example but it was the best thing I could think of and I'm hungry....
OK the poll is over and as it ran for 14 days only 14 votes came eitherway. So the RE comp is off due to the lack of interest and in the near future I will start some RE projects in the forum and hope other members will step in and help. Although I thought the comp would be a good idea I will try in the RE forum to instill members to participate in on going projects and if any member wishes to start their own feel free.
As I have stated before a RE projects section where members can find circuits and projects made by fellow members will be a valued resource in the future.
I didn't even know the post existed till today =P Didn't even get a chance to vote. Can't read every post every day. There needs to be a way the forum moderators can post polls like that to every user that pop up the next time they log on so you get every users opinion, or at least a better cross section than a thread that might get burried under all the other noise.
Also not using an acronym in the topic might have helped people want to read it =P
