So, we get a -5 star review? Not that it'd surprise me. I'm not thrilled with its lack of success to be honest.

Because everyone planning to join up has done so, but I can attest to the fact that the gov't paid me nothing. We found other users who pointed this out as well, though I refuse to drop names.

I think I could invite the top three candidates to 3 individual Town Halls on either the chat (#townhall) or in a thread.

I just tried and it worked normally, giving me poll break-down results. There was an ad underneath. Is there any chance you clicked the ad and it was for Google Maps?

If info is being compromised I'm switching back to strawpoll.me ...

I can confirm, info was compromised. Don't look at that. Thanks, Paula, for the heads up!

Haha, where do you get this stuff? xD

Actually, I didn't pick Moontide, I joined his team after WhittyWhit dropped out. Also, the team was already named "The Change Team." :-

Excuse me, I should have written moderator. Even though I usually dictate my writings to Google while I'm on the bike or the bus and edit it later, so I likely should have done the same for this as well.
