It is my opinion.

If we agree on something. What is good for you, is just as equally good for me or others, as we all are equal voices. Unless there is some form of discrimination going on.

Happy Simming,

So can we both agree to get back on topic now, whatever that might be at this point...

My experience of statistical analysis in a manufacturing arena simply showed ignoring data cost a company $$$. I would believe the lesson learned would apply to any company that ignores adverse quality results or direct customer feedback.

As far as the current poll, I would agree that the number of people voting for 90 days is not directly representative of the general population of DCS users. Why? Because I would bet everyone who voted 90 days actually did so only because the "never" option was not present

To be sure, is it an option to poll all users via the weekly update email?

Please include "never" just to make certain the responses are reflective of the community's opinions..

+1 to adding never option, it would be a more comprehensive poll

Not sure adding an option for ED to have no checks in place is a viable option, I think it would make the poll even less useful, not to mention adding options after people have already voted doesnt seem right.

Just remember that this works best when the population is uniform. You could argue that vocal forum members might have different priorities from casual forum members, and that both might have different concerns from non forum members.

All that said, the poll is probably reasonably accurate. Even if it works well a lot of the time, it's not hard to find yourself in a situation where you lose your connection for 3 days or even a few days more.

True, but the new DRM was also sprung out of nowhere. Asking for opinions on it first might have made things smoother. I think a few posts cited complaints with Starforce as one of the reasons behind the change, but the thing is people happy with Starforce most likely didn't feel a need to say they were happy with it. I never mentioned my opinion on that system unless a thread came up criticizing it.

In this case that's only going to be available to Harrier users though. What you say is still true, but the number of people who can give feedback will be reduced.
