in reply to Polls should be closed at

What, no 640? I'd say 1024, or 10% of the active users, or less than n new votes in the last m hours?

perl -pew "s/\b;([mnst])/'$1/g"

    After all... 640 votes should be enough for anyone, right? ;)

    Seriously, the poll should be closed 1)when someone with the ability to set a poll has a kickin' new idea and the current poll has been up long enough (subjective) 2)the rate of votes per day approaches zero (assumes predictable vote pattern of type y=1/ax). Of course, you can't close a poll unless there is a new topic. If there are no new topics in the poll queue, then the topic default should be some sort of "Future poll topics I'd like to see are:" question, with options being some seed ideas like "Favorite foo", "Most frequent foo", "Perl foo", "General Programming foo", "Life, the Universe, and Foo".
