Are polls listed in the edit count as user page or whatever the poll is on? Here is an example so you can understand what i'm talking about. And remember that the poll is only an example.

Is Darth Vader cool?

The poll was created at 03:28 on April 29, 2007, and so far 33 people voted.

  • No. It's not a contribution. Thefourdotelipsis 03:30, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
    • I can also confirm that voting in a poll doesn't seem to count as a contribution (i.e. it doesn't increase your edit count.) —Silly Dan (talk) 12:16, 29 April 2007 (UTC)
      • There really should be a law that says you have to contribute in article editing to get the right to vote or take part in any form of polls. Windu223, try to do some article editing please. MyNz 03:52, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

Uh, where do we have polls? This is the first one I've seen on this site. No big deal, just wondering.. -Fnlayson 04:14, 1 May 2007 (UTC)

  • Polls are evil. -- Riffsyphon1024 08:05, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
    • Seconded. - Sikon 10:32, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
  • Some users have polls on their userpages. KEJ 15:09, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
    • No,its not a contribution. Polls are silly and are not needed on Wookiepedia go to TheForce.Net to make your silly votes.--*Xerxes* 16:47, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Ugh. I just asked a question. Why is everybody mad at me?--Windu223 17:11, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks Stake.--Windu223 00:40, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

  • I don't see the problem with polls on user pages. KEJ 07:21, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
    • On userpages... like me. DARTH SIDIOUS2 Discussion board 11:40, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
      • Like that, or like more humorous ones. I don't see the problem. KEJ 11:59, 4 May 2007 (UTC)
        • 'I Did not intend to be "Non-Polite" Iwas trying to make a point that polls that people put on their page should be removed because they are nothing but a distraction to those who want to help out Wookiepedia. This is an encyclopedia People! Not a voting......uh.....pedia!?!--*Xerxes* 16:32, 4 May 2007 (UTC)'

Xerxes, I need to tell you somthing. Just because I asked a question about polls doesn't mean I vote on them every day. In fact, I'm working very hard on the current Improvment Drive.--Windu223 17:55, 4 May 2007 (UTC)

  • And so it is, you will work on your editing i shall work on mine we have agreed on these terms about poll editing and i will continue to support my own side.--*Xerxes* 16:45, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
    • Xerxes, you are in no place to talk to anybody else about what Wookieepedia is or isn't considering your own edit count, or lack thereof. - JMAS 17:26, 7 May 2007 (UTC)
