Ah ok, didn't know it was considered a poll. :elf: (I had just answered the Tom Bombadil poll.)
I think the point of the Tolkien Top 100 poll is to get the good sites noticed and lure new people to join. If you are in the top 3 to 5 or so you might get people checking out the site and wanting to join if it looks interesting. This is why you vote daily to get the count up so you are at the top of the list and more people visit to check it out.
