Alternatively, just actually moderate the original board and make people actually talk about the polls. Whichever is easier.

Basically, if there is no other solution, then sure - make a link to the APotD board. But technically, it's better to do something more like this:

For some reason mods have been very adamantly opposed to this action or doing anything about the PotD board at all. Even just removing the link from the poll results. I've no idea why, honestly but I don't really expect them to have a change of heart, so perhaps APotD being more prominently featured is the only option left.

No, this absolutely should not happen. PotD has been a social board since its inception, AFAIK, and it's far too late to change it now. There are people who like it the way it is, and there's nothing wrong with the board, except that it doesn't live up to its name in terms of topical discussion.

And the fact that it is directly advertised as its name and for the purpose of its name.

Removing the link should have been done a long time ago and is suitable action.

Technically, you can still discuss the poll on PotD. The community just makes that a very unpleasant experience. And it's very hard to change communities once they've become entrenched.

For the purposes of this petition, I'd prefer that no one talk about changing PotD, except for the proposed stickied link. If something could have been done, it would have already been done, and suggesting changes to PotD at this point will unnecessarily expand the scope of this suggestion. I think it's better to leave it the way it is, and offer an alternative to the people who are looking for one.

For whatever reason I do it (weird curiosity, I guess) I was over looking through the Ask the Mods board and I came across your massive topic... and I read through the whole thing. I noticed you posted a link to my very question asking them what the deal is with the PotD board. One of them directed me to your community board. I immediately bookmarked the link and I visit it any time I think a poll might be interesting to talk about.

Nonsense! That is what you speak. Nonsense... from beyond!
