      Poll : How many days from order to working connection?

      I've tried keeping up with all the posts on here about how long it's taken people to get connected with SkyBB, but it's a virtually impossible task. So, here's a quick poll for those of you who are already connected so the rest of us can get a rough idea of the timescales involved

      Thanks for voting!

      I can kind of see why you have a polls forum on here, but does it not just hide these away from the main traffic of the site? It's very difficult to find this forum and is only linked the "news" section, which IMO polls aren't.

      Obviously it's a good place to put the polls here that you post on the homepage, as they would have to live somewhere sensible. However, I think polls like this would be much more useful in the forum to which they are related.

      Ah... I never go through the main site homepage. I just jump straight into the forums. I guess it's down to the broswing habits of the individual

      Nice... I can only hope for such a fast turnaround. I guess it's in my favour that my install is just a new provide, not a move from a different ISP with a MAC. Hopefully that will speed the process somewhat.
