by The TECHdotMN Team

[Updated 7/27/18] – We ran a poll over the past ~10 days to get a sense of what our audience thinks; of 261 overall votes – 187 voted no, 51 voted yes, and 23 said maybe. This is some good feedback to consider that will help shape things going forward, since there’s always more to learn and improve upon as a community.

It would be interesting to hear comments from anyone willing to use their real name and elaborate on why they voted the way they did.

In this month’s meta poll, we’re asking our audience: Does Minnesota Tech Need More Arbitrary Popularity Contests?  Because words have meaning, we’re using the following definitions/scope:

Arbitrary: As determined on a whim, with emotion, or by favoritism – and not by logical reason, consistent principles, or transparent selection.

Popularity: The state of earning acceptance and admiration, or being publicly praised.

Contests: A competition of varying degrees in which the entrants are judged and chosen based on some criterion.
