It's not breaking any Forum Rules
However, even if you may not perceive it as a popularity contest, that's what it's going to end up being. It's asking who 'the best man on CEC' is. I'm very concerned about it causing hurt feelings, either because someone isn't listed on the poll or they don't get votes that they think they should get. Everyone has their unique sets of skills, and I think we really want to foster a sense of community and helpfulness. This could have the potential to undermine that.
I don't know 100% if this would cause a divisive atmosphere, but there's the possibility that this would happen. I know none of us wants to see that happen, and I'm just not comfortable with this possibility.
The other obvious reason is that you'll know from comments and views on your threads how things are going. You don't need a poll to tell you that.
It takes work to put together a story and post it. Anyone who takes the time to write and has the courage to post it for the rest of us to comment on and enjoy is royalty in my book.
