    Poll-1 Treat all new members as students

    This poll is anonymous. Current results will display, after you enter your choice.

    The Poll-1 question concerns the forum's mission. Please consider the following, before participating.

    It's been understood for a long time that active members in this forum don't do homework. We collectively decided some time ago that students need to be tutored, not spoon-fed. At that time, the membership was mostly students and volunteer tutors. Over time, increasingly more non-students have joined the forum, both as people seeking help with math-related issues in their life and as people with diverse backgrounds and experiences who enjoy reading content here or lending a helping hand with matters both academic or not.

    The regular contributors who volunteer here are having discussions about matters of mission and protocol. Poll-1 is a first attempt to gauge both the interest in and the usefulness of polling, while at the same time seeking feedback on a fundamental topic.
