I completely understand what you mean (:
It does bother me a little, but I just ignore them and move on to older polls & whatever.
It's a good idea and everything, but it might be too much work for moderators & a lot of members will probably riot over it.
I don't know if it should necessarily be a rule, but that is something that people should think about before they flood the poll section with their polls. Generally (in my opinion), the super repetitive "favorite song" or "favorite webkinz" polls that people make 20+ polls to go along with in their "series" aren't creative and are kind of boring. Plus, I don't really see the need for so many. Why don't you just choose your top 25 favorite songs or webkinz and then see what people like out of your favorites? People are less likely to post on a poll (or at least, I've noticed that the polls that are a "series" have less posts) if there are a ton of them. If you condense it, they will get more posts.
Not only does it benefit the poll starter to make less polls, it is also super inconsiderate to make a million polls on the same topic. Sure, if you see that the entire first page is made up of the same poll, you could go three pages back and look for poll you like. But usually, only people who go regularly to the poll section would do that. Someone who doesn't go as often will look at the first page, realize they are all about a topic that the person does not want to vote on/is not interested in, and will leave. They will vote later when they see that new polls on other topics have been made. But this means that all the polls made, even a few minutes before the giant series was posted, will be pushed back to later pages and will be forgotten about! I don't think that is fair to poll starters who actually think of creative poll ideas.
I'm not sure if I'm missing anything, but I've never seen a complete A-Z series of polls where each letter begins a song title. Although, I have seen series where they're more spread out, but those aren't annoying. I don't dislike this idea, I just think it's unnecessary.
I don't think a rule is needed, and you obviously can't stop people from doing things otherwise. I think what we need is just a sticky reminder thread in the poll section, saying that it is not necessary to create multiples of the same poll. It would be just like in the regular forum where you are expected to search before creating a poll to make sure it is not a duplicate. There wouldn't be a punishment for not obeying, but most WI members would be willing to follow whatever guidelines come up.
