    Dragon, the same amount of new links are accepted. It`s just the matter of when they are sent in. The options are both estimates.

    And Fancy, SPEEDY response. My goodness. Never let it be said that Fancy doesn`t listen to the people.

    1 every 30 minutes VS. 12 every 6 hours.
    30 min x 12 = 6 hours (not 60, my bad)

    1 x 12 = 12

    They are even.

    I don`t quite get this question. I mean, either way, why wouldn`t I vote for the first option? If I want more frequent links then I check the first one and if I only check the site every 6 hours or so then having 2 links every 30 minutes will still give me as many links as the second option in 6 hours...does anybody understand what I`m saying?

    I just sort of did it. If my brain-dead calculations are correct, in the span of one day:
    10 links per six hours = 40 links per day.
    1 or 2 links per 30-45 minutes = About 48 links a day.
    ... or I could be dead wrong on that last one...

    Mitch, I understand. And it`s more of a preference thing. Some people like big updates not as frequently, and others like some ones more frequently. Logically and only logically, you would be right (and I voted for the first one).

    I chose ten per six hours. Otherwise, if you miss just one day, all of a sudden there`s two pages of new stuff that you haven`t seen. If that makes sense.

    I like the idea of a new link every 30-45 minutes personally. Means everyone gets to participate in a new link. Also, makes it more interesting to have IAB left open and when a new link comes in I go "Oooh, new link, must check it out!". Otherwise I`d just check back once every 6 hours to see a bunch of new links.

    Just my opinion though. That`s why it`s a poll, people!

    I`d have to say one every 30-40 minutes. I find myself very impatient, so a steady flow is good.

    Also I`ve been meaning to ask:

    Republic: 1. a state in which the supreme power rests in the body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by representatives chosen directly or indirectly by them.

    Democracy: 1. government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.

    Aren`t we a Republic? Each state has a rep so every state has an equal say?

    Dragon if you miss one day, there are going to be the same number of links.

    The same number of links gets accepted, people. That`s not changing. WHEN they show up on the front page changes.

    WHEN. NOT HOW MANY.

    On another note, I`d like to see a new Poll:

    Should user quick_sand8:

    1) Increase the dosage of her meds, and make sure she takes them.
    2) Only have her straightjacket removed at predetermined times of day
    3) Have her internet connection only enabled under certain condtions (e.g. not currently frothing at the mouth)

    Say...I have 24 apples, and I need to eat them all in one day, or I die. Now, I can eat them once an hour throughout the 24 hour period, or I can eat 6 every 6 hours. Now do i take my time and saver them, or do I shove it in and fill myself up?

    And don`t be deceived that IAB is an actual Democracy, it`s more like a religious Theocracy...

    -Fancylad is God.
    -Opie is the Virgin Mary.
    -Hehehenerd is Judas, repentant and forgiven of his sins.
    -Primetime is the Holy Spirit, vengeful yet bounteous and fair.
    -Maddog is the Star of Bethlehem, only seen on rare occasions.
    - And me? I`m the f*cking Pope.

    Sorry about the stereotype, Opie. I know for a fact your name`s not Mary, so that label is wrong in at least 50% of it`s claims. And the Bible isn`t exactly dripping in female characters to choose from, most of the others are distinctly described as hookers/whores. Limited choice, you know?

    PPS
    Fancy, can you add the word "repost" to the list of words that IAB filters out? Have the system replace "repost" with "i`m an anally-retentive whiner" or something?

    > the Bible - most of the others are distinctly described as hookers/whores
    Oh and Mary wasn`t? "No dearest Joseph, I didn`t cheat on you... um... a man... no wait, a ghost... came in the middle of the night... and had sex with me... but I`m still a virgin don`t worry... by the way I`m pregnant..."

    Its a good thing I have Faith or that would sound ridiculous even to me. Seriously, although the Bible DOES portray most of its women badly, to be fair the entire Song of Solomon is an erotic poem about the worship of the female form and character, marriage and love, etc.

    You`ll get more returning visitors if it`s updated all day rather than just uploading a bundle all at once.

    i`d suggest we try the new way for a week, then have another poll at the end of that week, just to see if people really do like it or not.

    Davymid: There`s a ton of different Buddhas but generally the one who`s all about balance and moderation in all things.

    I like the repost filter suggestion too.

    God, just imagine if we ever had an IAB movie, we`d have to censor everything to drat, not a nice person, this is a cool video...actually that gives me an idea...

    You know, that brings up a good point, TKD. How come all the videos and pictures posted here can have swear words and durogitory remarks but we, the loyal users of IAB have to be censored? What the drat kind of dratin` poo is that? We can watch some old wrinkled dude go off on a skateboarder but we can`t say F, U. C-K?

    Why do people complain about the language filter? It`s not like we don`t know what you mean when you say, "fu.ck" and it comes up "drat". The language filter is more funny that irritating.

    i think the reason they`re asking is because everyone is complaining about the reposts. If they only do ten over the 6 hours they will probably be better posts and there will be fewer reposts. You people are too impatient.

    I voted for quality, but it seems like that`s a minority opinion.

    I hate it when there`s a spamming of links, cause my internet is slow so I never have time to go through them all, and load all the videos. (I check pretty much every day, so it adds up on me)..
