Has some already suggested this? On other forums posters can set up polls. There are so many threads on here like: my baby is bf and doesn't sleep through, would ff help? and loads of people come on with 'yes', no, no etc. These can get vitriolic as there isn't any real data available so it's one poster's word against another. It would be really interesting to see a poll showing lets say 25% posters agree, 75% against, that sort of thing. Get my drift? Anyone else agree?

We'd finally resolve the debate about whether scones are called sc-owns or sco-nes.

Oooooh, yes.

And you could take the results of the most interesting to the media as part of your media relations drive.

Oh sad you think that's what would happen?

zillyzilly Thu 01-Nov-12 12:14:47

No, I'm partly joking.

It would be up to MNHQ to run the polls as they saw fit. but polls are a known cynical way to get media coverage.

That's how Netmums managed to "announce" that "women" were no longer interested in feminism. hmm

They have polls on there do they?

Any organisation that wants easy-to-get media coverage will have polls.

LeBFG Thu 01-Nov-12 15:20:54

Yeah, they probably would. I've seen polls on much more specialist forums and wasn't thinking about MN being quite such a magnet of media interest. Hey ho - I'll never resolve the scone problem now wink
