This is just sad

This is from my newspaper today:




The website supposedly gets 10's of thousands of hits a day, but they can only manage 5 votes on an online poll that's been up for a week? Crimeny. I'm several years removed from my statistics class in college, but I'm pretty certain 5 people aren't even close to being an acceptable sample for anything. I'm also sure only 5 clicks out of 150,000 visits or so is even more pitiful.

I could probably post a poll on here on whether or not I should wear a tutu to bed, and I would get at least 20 votes in 24 hours. They have to be doing something seriously wrong. They can't even get employees to give it a pity vote.

It's embarrassing. The editor should've never let it get included. Of course, the editor should probably never have let such a boring-ass question be asked in the first place.

This week's poll is only a smidgen more interesting. For the love of God, vote. Right now it's at 10 votes.

I voted "Other." For us, it was all about Smear the Queer.

  2. In the wikipedia article, it says Smear The Queer is sometimes called kill the man with the ball, you voted wrong. Seems like a fun game except for the name.

  3. We played a variant called that, so I have always associated Kill the Man as a slightly different game. I think we had to strip the ball from him in that version. In smear the queer, we pretty much just kicked the crap out of the queer. Not very PC but fun as hell.

  5. I tried to vote once for each option, but it wouldn't let me after my first selection. So it's THEIR fault if they can't get enough votes, not ours.

  6. I voted. There were 25 votes when I did. You realize that means you are likely responsible for more than doubling their voting? I hope they appreciate your efforts. :)

  8. The wife might like it if you wore the Tutu (lol). I picked other. We played a game called colored eggs. This was tag, mixed with kick ball (in that it involved bases)A big bad wolf, a momma pig and several baby pigs. Don't ask me it was a neighborhood game we made up and played for years.

  9. Congrats! You got their votes up to 71! They should pay you for marketing or for posting the question on your site.
