    Ok.. Some of you may know I asked you guys some questions for a project awhile back. Well I took some of the content and made a poll out of it.

    "Top 25 Most Annoying Things On A Website"

    If you wanna vote for your "favorite" go here
    http://vote.Pollit.com/webpoll?ID=283455

    I knew you guys would want to vote for more than one, so I made the answers checkboxes.

    LOL, there's so many to pick from, not one exact answer. Tough to say.

    Oh. I'll probably only have this poll up for about a week just so I go ahead and see The Final Answer.

    Anyone wanna guess what will be Number 1?

    There are a lot to choose from - why not just vote for them all?

    I hate it when people use really dumb internet slang to make it sound like they're "talking slang". like I have this friend who talks in AIM like ... "aiiht, wazap...i got dis probem wit my compeuter", and it takes a couple minutes to try to figure out what he's saying. The funny thing is that he talks absolutly nothing like that in real life.

    Sure. Go ahead and vote for them all.
    It is what you guys chose as the most annoying things.

    If everyone chooses all of the choices, what's the point of the poll?

    Well...
    Only pick all if you really do hate that many things. There are some of the things on that list that aren't that annoying. I mean, typos only bother me if there are a lot.

    Excellent idea - should have one poll every month.

    It'd be interesting to see the results of a WYSIWYG vs text webbuilding. Or how about Unix vs Windows? The two biggest arguments that appear ALL the time here... well, perhaps not so much since recent 'happenings'.

    I've placed my vote, has to be music on web-sites, it always makes me jump for some reason.

    With Flash sites you expect sound effects but 'normal' sites with music wind me up!

    It was hard to choose. I went with background music, pop-ups, flash only sites and typos. There were many truly annoying things to choose from on that list, but those are the ones that I most often see on otherwise good, professional looking sites.

    Background music should be #1, flash splash screen with plain html "enter" link comes close though

    I was thinking I could do a weekly poll since this one is going pretty well and can be very useful to beginners.

    Yeah cool faces
