Kingstonist Goes to the Polls

Kingstonist, Polls, VoteSometimes I like to think of Kingstonist as a garden (of awesomeness), which requires constant care and attention in order for it to grow and ultimately flourish. This goes far beyond the daily grind of pruning content, approving comments and engaging readers via Twitter. From time to time we attempt to fertilize our online plot by way of incorporating new features and engaging content.   Some of the popular additions we’ve made in the past include Kingstonist’s Flickr group, which is now 42 members strong, the Intense Debate commenting system, our community events calendar and the list goes on.  Today I’m pleased to tear open our latest package of seeds, and introduce some new flora to our magical greenhouse.

That drum roll is getting a bit long, so without further ado it gives me great pleasure to unveil Kingstonist’s Weekly Poll.  It’s kind of a no brainer, and to be honest I’m a bit embarrassed that it’s taken us this long to implement.  If you haven’t already noticed it, you will find this feature on the main home page, tucked in between the about us statement and the list of upcoming events.  Our inaugural public opinion poll is as follows:

Who's the best act to come to the K-Rock Centre?

  • Elton John (144%, 36 Votes)
  • Other... (100%, 25 Votes)
  • The Tragically Hip (76%, 19 Votes)
  • Jerry Seinfeld (44%, 11 Votes)
  • Metric (20%, 5 Votes)

Total Voters: 96

While this week’s question is a bit trivial we promise to address real, hard hitting issues that are near and dear to those who are concerned about the future of Limestone City.  A short list of topics we’ll likely tackle in the coming weeks and months include: pedestrian friendly streets, the poker run, bike lanes, the Third Crossing, Kingston’s worst street etc…  If you would like to suggest a topic for one of our future polls, please drop us a line.

Stay on the lookout each and every Monday for a new poll question.  Otherwise, let the voting commence!  Special thanks to Theresa Thompson for today’s photo.
