Wow.. what a difference a notification makes. :) In just under four hours we have equal the number of votes that we had in four weeks!
Keep the votes coming! ;)
Not voting is your right. You are free to make this decision and I think you will find respect for it. That said, can you explain what the following means?Quote:
Since I am new, I really don't want to vote...
I understand it is one whole sentence but I broke it up because there are two different points in it. Specifically, I'm having difficulty understanding, "what the community doesn't stand for" and its meaning. Can you elaborate?Quote:
...for something that the community doesn't stand for.
And I think that question is different from the below additional quote:
You're in a community. A community specifically devoted to Java. I think the forum appearance and the choices in this poll indicate this. If you're in confusion over why we're doing this, then please see the link to the thread that is pointed to by this one where a discussion took place before this poll began. When you first walk into this forum, I think it's pretty evident what this forum is about. For example, it's not about discussing politics or baking food... unless of course you're in Lobby talking about this stuff. Also, keep in mind, this being a forum based on community, we typically make decisions in the democratic format, so your voice is important.. and hearing from folks in the form of the poll votes is one way you're able to make changes to your forums.Quote:
... what are the goals/what is the community trying to accomplish over all others?
