Are the "community standards" turned off this week on Ask?

I've recently noticed a trend where silly questions are being allowed. Is this some new rule or something?

They now allow all poll questions. That's why we are seeing so much nonsense. It's not just for a week. I was told to contact cs and give my input. Maybe if we all do they may change it. Or not.

All I know for sure is that there was a question up with the S-word in the further details, and the Q stayed up for over a day!! I flagged it of course, but it did no good. Ask DebW if you see her :)

It's a trend that should fade around the same time school starts in September. ;)

Hi Hollow_Breeder,

We didn't turn off the guidelines, but as others have mentioned, we are allowing all poll questions now. The guidelines will be updated to reflect this policy change. We are working hard to ensure that all poll questions are categorized correctly. If don't want to see poll questions, you can do the following to remove them from your experience.

- Click on "Browse" in the left nav
- Click on "Browse Settings" found in the blue bar just above the questions list
- Click "Edit Categories"
- Select the category(ies) that you no longer want to see in Browse - Polls would be appropriate in this case
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Save Changes"

Once you do this, you will no longer see Poll questions unless you change your settings or navigate directly to the Polls category.

Payton
