There have been _____ polls started on TCS in the last three years. (47)
Does anybody have another number? Somebody is counting wrong here.
Persi & I got 49.
Search titles only
Sort results by Thread Start Date

Count the little graph bars until you have counted the one right before August 10, 2005.
We seem to have uncovered a bug here. I went back and looked at the individual start dates of each poll, which I why I asked you by pm if that had been what you did. But looking closer at the TCS War Poll, you can see that did not fall within the three years that the poll was started. Yet, using the Sort Results by Thread Start Date is not working according to start date at all, but rather by when the last post was made to that thread, that may have started much earlier. So although I did not hear from you, you still got the actual correct answer and I will advise you all on how that part of advanced search is REALLY working. There are only 48 poll threads that have been started in the last three years but the threads are being sorted as to when they were last responded to, rather than when they were started. I never doubted the search engine was doing what it was supposed to. Persi says to give you a thousand extra points so I will. Now all I have to do is to remember to get the asterisks in front and behind your name so they go to the right person this time!
