    I really like afra's enthusiasm. Though his polls skew away from my preferences, so I don't vote in them. Am I still allowed to have an opinion?

    It's great that there was talk of a relatively obscure niche house like Diptyque. Greatly drives up interest. Like all the talk of oud made me re-try the Montale fragrances.

    I thought that Afra missed a good opportunity with this "Which perfume reviewer do you prefer?" thread in the Fragrance Industry Discussion. Curiously, not a poll!

    I voted for "Favorite Noses."

    First of all I'd like to thank the members of the Academy...for the lifetime achievement Award.
    Seriously I'm overwhelmed, but there is an impostor in our board who has been posting polls in my name(!).
    I am glad everyone unanimously liked the polls, just kidding..
    My own favs were the small Niche polls like Villoresi , and the women's polls, the women are so sweet and polite and actually the response was good SirSlarty.
    Dimitri had PM'ed me pleading that I stop posting more polls, if he looks anything like his avatar, I'm not risking any more polls, even may leave the forum.

    Please allow three questions, Sirslarty:
    1 - There are no reviews! What exactly do you mean?
    2 - What is a 'comedy option' ?
    3 - At this very moment 32 voters left 76 votes, 12 of which went to 'Polls are unnecessary'. The table shows these as 37.50%.
    - I make that 15.79%. What went wrong in your poll's design

    narcus, it's obvious to me that no offense was meant and non taken, I know Sirslarty well and I'm sure he did not mean any disrespect or whatever, we need some fun threads to make things a bit more interesting on the Forums, but being careful NOT to say anything offensive is I think essential, and speaking for myself I try to be respectful to any poster but sometimes words can be misinterpreted .

    12 divided by 32 (the number of voters) = 37.50%
    Multiple choice polls will add up to more than 100%

    I agree that we need more lighthearted threads and lighthearted people. I am here because I enjoy the friendship as much as the subject matter.

    How about those 16 polls that form the basis of this poll? Most, if not all of them add up to 100%.
    I am not about to re-check that, but I believe they are all multiple choice polls. Are you saying their design is wrong?
    My point is: so far only 16% of all votes went to the comedy option (whatever that means) .

    1. Reviewing a reviewer is like polling a poller.

    2. Comedy option is something thrown in for those that don't care.

    3. Ask SommervilleMetroMan. Hell if I know anything about numbers.

    4. There is no four but you're taking this too seriously.

    Yes, I am sure.

    It makes sense from the perspective that 37.5% of the people who voted chose the comedy option.

    It is 16% of all votes but that figure has been diluted to the extent that some people voted for more than one option.

    Where is SommervilleMetroMan (Numbers that's what I do) guy when you need him(!)
    I think the point from all this is, most members prefer "poll type" threads but not in the form of polls (That doesn't make sense but never mind).

    Sorry for being late:
    If 37.5% (or 34% today) of the people who voted chose the comedy option, then 197% of the people who voted chose some or all of the other options.
    Diluted or inflated - or simply absurd?
