Recommended Posts

hi everyone,

 

this is a copy/paste of ED's original voting list. i made this initially in order to help me in my own decision process, before placing my personal ranking. thought it might be useful to some of you...

seems like a lot of people did not place their votes yet, so i hope it's not too late that i add some information to features that don't seem self-explanatory -at least not to me ;)

 

i am NOT the author of the poll, NOR do i intend to influence anyone of you guys.

 

some people reported to have misunderstood the ranking principle, so here are the poll rules:

you may rank each of the 41 features from 10 (highest priority) to 1 (lowest priority).

The idea of a poll s to show how you feel. It's your choice and shouldn't be influenced by what others say.

 

This thread is not needed.

 

again, it's just a copy & paste of the original poll list to save some people who might find this useful a few clicks. you may use it, OR, you can just leave it.

I don't think this is a pointless thread, but it would be good to expand upon the voting options with more information. Some people don't understand what mission cards are, what the UFC backup page is, etc. I know I had to go and look for more information to answer a few questions.

thanks for your feedback, biggus! as i am writing this, there are still not even 3400 votes, so it made sense to me to do a little research, and add some more information.

It's a commonly held (anecdotal) belief that only 10% of a game/sim player base actually reads the forums so 3400+ replies might be about all we'll see.

 

Better than some civic elections I've seen... :music_whistling:
