Incorrect; People will begin ******** at: 12:01am Thursday Feb. 24th through the next week till results are posted because it can't logically take them longer than a minute to compile and present the results!

I'll be ******** if they don't post -something- tomorrow (or by Friday).

I don't really care about the Poll results.
They could never post them for all I care.

It only gives fuel to the "give me an Auction House" fire
and everyone who reads "considering AH" sees that as a victory.

I'm just tired of playing a game when I don't have a clue of what to expect and I don't have anything to do. Yoshida's little table would be better if his "current" and "future" categories weren't so vague. I still have no clear idea when to expect anything.

Since he's told us Quests will be in the next patch - some insight on when that patch will be would be nice. I don't mean something vague like "after February" or "early March." I mean like "March 5." I can't stand being in the dark for so long.

Edit: And to be fair to critics when polls close on election day, we pretty much know who the President is the next morning. If you set up the poll properly, it doesn't take long to compile the data. I think picking Presidents is more complicated than picking battle systems in an MMO so how hard can polling be?

(Don't reference 2000 elections as evidence, please. ^^)

We're polling opinions, not voting. It wouldn't do anyone any good for them to post just the results themselves. Sure, they could, but somehow I think the amount of ******** would be intolerable.
SE: Here are your poll results!
Players: Great! So what are your plans/ideas/thoughts based on them?
SE: No clue!

Right. I know. I understand they have to actually have meetings and discuss their plans.

I simply meant the data itself is available to them immediately. Since it was a smaller poll in general and focused on one aspect of the game. I would not expect to wait 2 weeks. I also would not hope to see results by Friday.

Personally, though, I hope to see something by Friday.
Related to the poll or not, I don't care.

I'm hoping it's not "how to tie your shoes" though.

If possible, i'd actually prefer if we didnt get to see them at all.

Simply the fact of knowing how many people want to ruin the game with PVP or similar radical votes will only make me depressed.

I also was in favor of not seeing the results of either poll.
And just letting them use that information to guide their "vision."

I still hope the poll results aren't "their vision."

I hope Yoshida actually had a vision when they gave him the job.
I thought he did and I thought he'd share it with us. So far that hasn't been the case.

I would say they will put PvP in sometime anyway, this poll will be things SE want to implement but with the state the game is in right now they need to give each addition the right priority like if most people want large scale engdame content and they add PvP first then people will start flaming about that.

But saying that if they did have plans to implement everything in the poll, they could also not implement some things.

I really think this is just so they can give each change the right priority depending on what the majority of the community wants, beleave it or not SE do care about the players.
