This must stop.

Everyone here at Ironworks is WORTHY and VALUED and is GREAT in their own right. There is no "better" or "worse" here. What is with all these "popularity" threads? This "who's on top" belongs in High School, not here at IW.

Guys, these only lead to hurt feelings among our members. We have had problems with them in the past, and they tend to start petty skirmishes among many of our valued people here.. We have asked nicely that these be halted, and that no new ones will be started.

Henceforth, any new "popularity polls" here will be deleted without futher notice. Consider yourselves warned.

I thank you.

Sazerac is absolutely right and it's a damn shame this has to be said again and again, because I think we all know it's something that goes without saying.

I agree, even though I have seen none, it only leads to hurt feelings!

We all add something to the community, so matter how small that contribution is it's still a valuable contribution.

No offence!

I think Saz was refering to this one (and the many others before it that I didn't see since I'm new to GD):

The guy that started the thread in question, I believe, is rather new to the forum, and would not have any knowledge of previous problems that have occured.
He probably thought his thread a good idea, and did not know that it may cause trouble.
If the thread is bad, delete it and then sweetly (like Memnoch does it) tell him "That is a no, no!"
*hugs & kisses, etc.*.

I agree that we don't need popularity contests. I do believe that the post in question was done innocently and not to stir up controversy.
