Their only use is informative and getting a message across, but you won't see CF or anybody act upon forum polls. A forum poll might not be the right way to send message across other than just a starting point of discussion. Community blogs and social media is the best way to get the masses and put pressure on companies. Nobody likes bad press on social media. I think even though CF lacks resources or has their hands tied (they don't.......and if they have lack of resources it is their doing......) ; if there were enough users willing to come forward and express their unhappiness, on a larger scale not just some tiny poll, and having sufficient exposure (social media, blog, etc.) then that might help move things faster......
The problem is, despite all the crap from CF, people still continue to work, and their stats show growing activity not declining, so that gives them indication that most people are happy and nothing has to be done.
This is a community thing, if everyone boycotts CF and stops working with them and doing tasks, that will have a significant impact and they will start to suddenly bloody CARE........
But unfortunately this won't happen, because some people are earning well from tasks.
But I believe in freedom of expression and polls are a good thing providing they are civil and constructive / non biased, but to be honest, they won't change damn thing with CF or RF or anything else.
CF had its own community forum years ago and it was flooded with complaints, did it change anything ? NO...... ALL the changes made by CF following that, were making things worse and not to the interest of contributors, at least most of them ......
I remember CS said CF was basically new (at the time CS added CF).
More recently, I received an email from Amazon more or less wanting me to click something
if I was still interested in staying with their thingie. Many many years ago, I joined Amazon
as an affiliate and then they brought in that thingie and I joined it. However, I never did any
work in the thingie. I would just look at it some times. It was a forum with gazillions of jobs
of all sorts. I'm not sure if you could ever cash out the money you earned or only use it as
Amazon credit on/toward purchases. Can't recall at the moment what they called it. Reminds
me of CF. I didn't bother to click it because I never did anything with it anyway.....and was a
member something like 15 years or more!
Bottomline, these type of task jobs have been around many years. I don't make much sense
out of them but I don't think CF has got their shxx together well at all.
You folks just don't realize the junk moderators constantly do not approve here. It's like war.
I can't make everyone happy and I don't even try. I simply try to follow the rules and I don't
know what other moderators do exactly but I do know I spend way too much time going thru
this forum. I hate to see members in pink.....waiting for their post to post, waiting for help.
In regards to Polls in the 'Task' sub forum, it is my right to request a feature request, just
like everyone else. I can't see the point in it other than giving moderators something else
to do. Because one thing is for sure, CF does not seem to care about POLLS.
