  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    Chrome prompts for a folder to put the bookmark in, so I make sure the bookmark goes in the right folder when I create it. The option I chose was 'Never' because with this system, I never have to organize them explicitly since they always organized as soon as they are created.

    ... really gotten used to using bookmarks. I remember something I have read once somewhere and think of one or two words specific to that article or subject; google it. It's on, or close to, the top of the result list.

    do safaris 'top sites' count as bookmarks? I have a few of them pinned permanently, but I like the idea that it adjusts to what I visit most. it's living bookmarks that I don't have to setup! Cheers

    I would argue no. I think of organizing as bringing order to chaos, not keeping an already established order.

    For example, if my bookshelf is organized first by author and then by title, and every time I buy a new book and place it on the shelf I just add it in where it belongs, then I wouldn't say I organize my bookshelf every time I buy a new book. I would just say my bookshelf stays organized, and that I just maintain the existing order.

    However, if my bookshelf had no order and I sat down and arranged the books by author and then title, then I would say I organized the bookshelf.

    In more relevant-to-the-discussion terms, I would only count organizing bookmarks as bringing up the bookmark manager, which I never have to do (Never meaning haven't used it since I adopted this system).

    I do the same. It's not adding bookmarks that is a problem, but removing the ones you don't need or don't exist anymore.
