Site Columns By Lisa
August 5, 2001 - 2:24 PM

Hello World!

Today is Sunday. In TrekToday terms, that means that it's our day to set a new poll for the site. Whoever has the lucky task of writing Sunday's Site Columns has the responsibility of changing the onsite poll.

So I sat down to think of a good subject for this week's new poll. And I thought and I thought, and my mind remained a complete blank. So I decided to pick Caillan's brains a little, to see if he had any ideas.

Between the two of us, we managed to come up with the following suggestions: 'Which Trek character would you like to see dance?,' 'Who would you like to see at a convention?' and 'Which TrekToday editor do you love most?'

Of course, these suggestions are completely lame, and I'd never dream of subjecting you to them. As for the latter suggestion, Caillan quickly decided that such a poll would not be fair, owing to the fact that my dial-up connection affords me a dynamic IP, which changes much more frequently than his own cable connection. I was of course, shocked that he'd even think that I'd do such a thing. He countered quickly by reminding me that he'd take revenge by voting from several different computers on his University network.

Besides, we both decided that such a poll would be completely unfair. After all, Christian has a two year head start on both of us.

I decided that the only way out of this difficult and potentially embarrassing predicament would be to ask you, the wonderful TrekToday readers for poll suggestions. So please, good people, your editors are sadly lacking in inspiration and would welcome your suggestions. Please (don't make us beg) feel free to make them in this TrekBBS thread, or by email and we might use your suggestion next time we change the poll on the site.

Of course, after coming up with this great master plan, I actually thought to take a look at the TrekToday main page. And discovered that the poll is mysteriously missing from the site. It seems that Christian must have temporarily disabled it for maintanence. Grr.

But still, I'm sure this is only a temporary measure, and the TrekToday poll will be back very soon. This means that we still need poll suggestions! Please, take pity on our lack of inspiration this Sunday morning, and send us your suggestions for the next poll. They will be much appreciated.
