I have been a regular here for nearly 10 years and I cannot recall ever seeing a post from you before, so uh, hi! Nice to meet you! :)

 

Entre, the best Moderators are unseen and rarely heard from. I know you better than you know me.

My name is Mike, I'm a Cancer, and I'm a porn star at my other job. Nice to meet you!

Hi Mike , I’ve just been a bit curious and so read your profile …

is Hold Your Fire still ‘ really ‘ your all time  Fav :rush: album ? 
if so can you please expand as to why please Captain Launchpad ? 🤔

…the lyrics ? ..Geddy’s best bass lines for example ? 

To me HYF is too soft sounding.. and dare I say it even a tad boring ! :ohmy: :16ton:

I’m more of a fan of the boys more Metal/Proggy output :musik19::pirate:

Rather than make a dedicated subforum for polls, how about if hi_water simply slowed down his pace a bit? Looks like he has 4-5 active polls going at once, all in various stages of progress. Maybe we don't need more than two active polls at a time, and maybe each round can be active for 3-4 days instead of two.

 

Hi_water, what do you think? We like these polls your doing, and we like the format you've come up with, but maybe too much of a good thing is too much. Slowing down would not only make these polls something people would forward too more, but you'd also probably get more votes per round …

Have you had any word from Hi_Water ? 🤔
I hope he is still going to continue doing these Polls 🤞..as I’m already eagerly awaiting the next rounds of the currently on-going ones.

I've not heard from him. I'm assuming he's seen this thread and is not happy that some would complain about his poll output.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong but I think hi water took a bit of a break once before when people were getting on him about not allowing time for his polls to breathe before starting new ones. Perhaps this is what's going on right now.

🤔Yes that’s my concern too 😕

( lots of people really like his polls and appreciate the hard work he puts into them )

I like them too, but I also see the value in him slowing down a bit. It would benefit him, too -- he wouldn't run out of viable bands as quickly and more people would have time to cast votes -- but perhaps he doesn't see it that way.

Yeah hopefully he’s just taking a short break and will be back to ressume the existing polls next week 🤞

Hopefully he is fine with slowing down a tad , but it’d also be nice IMHO to conclude the currently active polls & then maybe allowing a few days before starting off the next batches

Well Hi Water's been gone a week now. I find it hard to believe he didn't take some kind of offense when he saw this thread, though there was none intended.

Yeah I made this thread with the intention of slowing things down a little, not some utter halt. I do appreciate the efforts of others to post in the various "official" threads and by creating new topics.

As Random Samples has a containment subsection for spam/games/etc., should we maybe unclutter Music of the Spheres with its own subsection for polls? More than half the topics on the front page are all polls.

I'm sure hi_water took offense to the initial suggestion that his polls be moved to a subforum because they're clogging up MoTS. I know no offense was intended, as was clearly stated by you and everyone else in this thread, but it seems he thought of that idea as some sort of "banishment," despite the fact that the idea of a subforum was shot down pretty quickly.

Why? We all made it clear that we like his polls. Is he above one constructive suggestion, namely, slow his pace a little? The idea of him letting the polls breathe a bit is a deal breaker, and hurt his feelings enough to leave the board? I'd like to think he's made of stronger stuff than that.

I’d hope he is too. Maybe it’s a coincidence and some other life event happened that caused him to stop logging in.

I supported the sub-forum, but I certainly didn't mean it as banishment. I love the polls and I'd be in there all the time. I certainly never meant offense. 

 

The polls have made me learn and grow as a music fan.
