The polling algorithm that separates ride quality from rider quantity is being used to rate over 300 coasters worldwide and categories on the ballot.
For the first time, illustrated instructions are available.
Also, there is only one week left to vote in the 2002 Internet WOOD Coaster Poll which closes November 30.
SFGAm: 1)DV 2)V2 3)AE Blue 4)Viper 5)Bull
Wow, Why did you waist five seconds with that response Bull Fan?
Chuck, who says either do it or not and quit whining.
Is it about coasters or friends? I say both!

If it takes you five hours to rate your steel coasters, you must have ridden practically every one in the entire world!
Seriously, why do people seem determined to make such a big deal about taking the time to vote? Instead of hyping your favorite coasters in your signatures, you can actually vote them into the top spots that you think they rightfully deserve! The time it takes to complete the poll is a lot less than it appears to be. Don't complain unless you have actually completed your ballot and sent it.
Besides, with just a couple hundred submitted ballots each year, your vote really can count!
Don't forget to vote for your favorite wooden coasters @ http://www.geocities.com/wcoasterpoll - the polls are open until November 30th!

I spoke to Mitch about his instructions. Its a catch-22 situation. If he makes them simple it seems many people submit improper ballots. So, he's made them as exact and detailed as possible, which unfortunately makes the poll seem confusing, difficult, and time consuming. The upshot of that, however, is that he rarely gets improper ballots.
Anyone with an IQ of a sea sponge can do this poll...I'm living proof of that!
You must be one clever freakin' sponge! ;)

Yeah, but its fun, eh Boblo?
Yes the Coaster Polls are fun. I'll leave rating M:TR to those elite ten-percenters with the courage to challenge it. I'll stick with rides made for the general public.
LOL Boblo...but what about those who are ten-percenters half of the time? M:TR doesn't discriminate ;-)
Speaking of discrimination, maybe the steel poll should be segregated by loopers and non-loopers. Coasterbuzz discriminates against emoticons with noses ;^) ;) As for me, I don't care about a persons ride preference, just don't try and drag anyone on a Boomerang if they don't want to ride one.
Just love those Seinfeld references....
Boblo, I agree, my emoticons bear the "aquiline" noses....;~).... *** This post was edited by rollergator on 11/26/2002. ***
I make a joke, 'Gator follows with one of his own, the moderators get mad...yadda, yadda, yadda...and the thread is closed.
Something tells me that 'sponge worthiness' isn't part of the equation for Mamoosh. ;)
