Been wondering why ain't there a poll system in the forums? There's hundreds of threads about what > what and a simple poll would give an easy way to collect information, it's also clear data. It's not a big task to create one.
The site is not sinking with 1.6. Just imagine what Nix0n and co. have done here. Huge effort only rarely produce huge results (a sad fact) but this site really has made a huge breakthru. The community dictates and both Nix0n and Nomad seem to be quite capable of delivering.
