Posted: Fri Jan 23, 2009 8:59 pm    Post subject: Friday Poll: Winning Stuff  

We had a thread about this recently, but I think everything deserves the chance to be transformed into an AVARiCE™ poll and fulfil its true potential in terms of entertainment for the masses.

So, winning stuff. With an AVARiCE™ twist. When you win stuff - what do you prefer it to be? A physical item like a trophy, which has no real value but carries sentimental value; a physical item like a PS3, which holds real-world value; an emotional thing, such as respect from people, etc etc and so on and so forth yadda yadda.

Note that "Winning" here is down to your discretion. So if you consider a lazy bum in a back alley a win then it's a win. I think. Explain your answers, douches.

To the "I <3 Av" brigade. I love you guys ♥

I said other. I finally figured it out. You're getting even with me for for all the cat videos, pix, and posts. Well, poll on, I've got a new Houdini video on the way, two in fact. Same "event" just 2 angles; uh, since he won't trust me any more. You'll see what I mean.
By the way - what's an emotional prize? A complement? PFFFT!!!!

Click this link then click the Listen Preview button for your emotional surprise. :lol: :P

No... I thought my polls were enjoyed :(

Emotional prize. The prize is the reward and emotional means it's not got a physical representation but "A non-physical representation as a reward" isn't catchy. :D

@ Minty

Doing it now.

It depends on something you have to earn like an achievement or an award, a trophy or sentimental prize will do me fine. It symbolizes all the hard work you've put in and it's for no-one's benefit but your own.

If it's a random pick-of-the-draw prize, I'd prefer to win something practical - what's the point in winning if you can't do anything with it?
