PollDaddy’s great but slowed things down when used to excess…


statistics often lie

You may have noticed that when WordPress introduced PollDaddy we jumped at the opportunity by adding a poll for almost every recent blog entry.

What lovely eye candy! What fantastic interactivity!

Well, yes.. but… we found that too many polls slowed down loading time even with a highspeed connection, especially during those times when things were a bit slower than usual.

So who knows how all this affected dialup users… those much valued ‘salt of the earth’ folks not sucked in by all the hype and glamor of highspeed!

The bottom line is that we’re removing all PollDaddy polls except for the one in the sidebar, which will remain.

Trial and error… it’s the only way to learn.
