Whoops, didn't see it go up; missing the overly-wordy-yet-not-very-well-explained commentary to tell you how to vote (maybe?).
I don't know, in general, do you prefer predatory animals or prey animals? For whatever reason. Maybe you play a fox, so go predator; rabbit, go prey. Do predators or prey look cooler? Do you want to make this a sex thing, and want to surreptitiously tell everyone you're a bottom? Whatever, just pick one, the last poll was time sensitive and the time had passed, and I used up all my good polls like after the first day when I was editor.
Speaking of polls whose time has passed, last ... week's? Month's? Well, anyway, last poll's results were "none of the above" with a fair majority at 56% of the 52 votes cast. So, more choice doesn't mean more attendance (if this admittedly totally non-scientific poll with a minuscule sample size counts as evidence in any way).
Well that completely changes my vote. >.> You should ask more clear questions.
And, reading a bit more, it doesn't. This poll makes no sense! Arghh!

See, the thing is, given your history of poll comments, I really have no idea if you're joking or not.
My history of poll comments?
I was serious. The quiz comes with no context, so naturally one assumes it's like a dom/sub thing. Then your comment talks about preferring prey or pred animals. But after reading a bit further it again talks about sex. At least in my case, the answer to the question changes depending on which question you are actually asking. Which makes the poll result completely useless because the question is open to different interpretations.
Nobody ever said polls had to be useful, in and of themselves. As with stories, the discussion they engender - for example, your assumptions - is frequently more enlightening than the actual content.
It's for fun, Rakuen.
Historically, what I'm saying, is you do what you did here; you take the polls seriously, even when they're not designed to be. Trust me, this is meant to mildly entertain you for a moment, and then be forgotten. This one especially, as it is literally a place holder between the last poll outliving the events it was about and the next poll someone actually puts some thought into.
And, as I pointed out, for a variety of reasons, we probably shouldn't run completely serious questions, either; or at least not take the results seriously. A serious question now and then can also be fun, but I would strongly advise against taking Flayrah poll results as backing anything up in a meaningful way.
Also, seriously, you saw a poll by me and thought, "Oh, yes, this is definitely a sex thing." Really?
From a practical standpoint, a vague "question" for the poll also allows more people to participate.
I doubt the identity of the pollster was the key factor in this case; more the identity of the respondent.
Green Reaper, it is always about me.
Even if it's for fun, it seems kind of pointless to ask an arbitrary question with no meaning.
Also you can't see a poll is by without going into the poll.
To be fair, many options did get votes, so the inclusion of more of them had an impact; and back in 2012, ~25% of survey-taking furs have never been to a convention, and only 20% went to more than one a year. Doubtless, Flayrah's readership is a rarefied crowd; but to see twice that percentage visit a con in a month five years later seems no small improvement.
I'm a predator. I just happen to be a vegetarian one ^^
Last time I played the game at Oklacon, I was the truck. Despite blowing my recorder assudiously, I ran over six or seven furs! Incidentally predators are correlated with therians and otherkin.
Predators are bae in most cases.
I'm a different furry with different opinions.
