    Using proper date format.
    Would like to keep daythreads rather than going to weakthreads, but if they are to be weekly then I endorse using the correct date format.
    This typo perfectly sums up my thoughts on the matter.

    Daythread can and frequently do go past ten pages, meaning a compressed weeekthread could easily become a 50+ page megathread. If the intent is to maintain the flow of conversation, I think this will have the opposite effect and bury the singleton comments that make up most of daythread content. It's a well known forum fact that megathreads aka containment threads stifle discussion more than promote it.

    If you want to discuss an issue or a happening or a specific topic, make a thread about it. Daythreads are for shitposting that doesn't warrant it's own thread or fit anywhere else.

    Well no, in this case the comedy option is also "daythreads still"

    6/8 comedy options in a poll is a bit much m8s.

    The fact that 5 people have voted for said options is as it should be though.

    I'm honestly undecided on the matter, but I don't often open daythreads anyway, as they are a bit contentless. I think FHC was better before we had daythreads! So do away with date-based-threads entirely is probably the missing option in the poll.

    Wait, some people took that as a comedy option? Fuckin' a, no wonder not many people saw the folly of this path. RIGGED VOTE! FAKE POLLS!

    Heck, let's just go all the way and make a single off topic thread. Forever deny anybody the opportunity to come up with a unique day thread title or opening post.

    Sometimes if i really want something to be seen I'll start a day thread with it. Fuck that, right?

    Wouldn't it have been better to first have a poll about whether people actually wanted this before asking which day a week should start on? Power drunk nu-mods getting carried away already.

    Right, see, now you have a problem; more people didn't vote for any one option, than did vote for any given option. Whatever you do now, you have a plurality but the majority will be pissed because it isn't what they wanted.

    How is that a problem? Right now Daily has 28 votes, Weekly has 36 votes. A majority has voted Weekly. Of the Weekly votes,the clear majority has voted for Monday.

    No one is prejudiced by the poll structure.

    I assumed Sunday was the comedy option and picked that.

    That said, ISO 8601 date format for life! YYYY-MM-DD or YYYY-Www (eg 2017-W01 for the first week of 2017). It's a nice big-endian format, and won't cause confusion between US (drunk-endian) and EU (little-endian) formats.

    No one is prejudiced by the poll structure.
    Counterpoint: 31 people picked Monday, 35 people picked Not Monday. A majority has voted not to start weakthreads on Monday.

    This is the problem with multiple poll choices. I wouldn't have expected an american like Hels to anticipate it, but there you go.
