I think the "Fun polls" section should be merged into part of "General discussion".
Now that you can view the General discussion forum without going back to the forum index, the Fun polls are kind of excluded from the main part of the forum. It is also annoying to go to the board index just to go into Fun polls, when I don't want to go to any of the general discussion stuff. Not a big issue, but there is really no reason not to change it.

Does this annoy anyone else?

If I am understanding what you're saying (whether it's merging the Fun Polls and General Discussions sections or placing the Fun Polls section in the upper section of the Forum), I would say no.

Fun Polls seems to be fine as its own section; it combines a few Homestar Runner and many off-subject polls, and can be considered popular enough to stay as its own section in its own category. In a way, it is the border between the "upper" and "lower" sections of the Forum--two distinct entities.

I think we should make a new category called "Homestar-related polls" and then a "Off-Topic Polls"

Well personally, I think H*R-related polls, if anywhere else, should go in their respective upper forum (Characters, Games, Toons, Emails).

I've had this thought for awhile, though I'm not sure how popular the Homestar-related polls section would be when compared to the off-subject portion.

Well, "Fun Polls" is currently in the "Polls" category. :P

General Discussion is an H*R related board. Most of Fun Polls is not. Therefore, it gets its own board.

I agree with the last part of this. My only hassle is the only time I have to go back to the Board Index is when I'm going to Fun polls. I think we should be keeping the upper and lower forums more separate by having only Off subject discussion and General discussion.

The way it is, any forum members who post in "upper" or "lower" parts have to exit their part of the forum just for Fun polls. This isn't really bad, just a hassle.

Alright then:

I think it shouldn't be that much of a problem for you to take the time out of your precious day to click two links and scroll down a page. Also, there are two different kinds of polls, so having the polls be in one section would result in confusion.

In conclusion: OH POOR BABY

I say that we should havce "Fun polls", and "Boring polls".

Of course, over time, boring polls would be merged with R&P, so nothing would essentially change.

Nevermind.

Kepp things the way they are.

^ the solution to everything

When you click back, just go straight to the Index.
