The Genius Bar is our help forum which is slow.

Should we keep it or should we get rid of it and leave people to post their tech support questions in the respective technology forums?

Voted.

When I've needed it I've found it useful, a life-saver even, so I've voted to keep it. It makes sense to me to have a specific place for such problems rather than to have them lost amongst other threads .

I think an important question is, "If the majority votes to keep, will this in fact happen?"

I hope so, colour me naive, but I also believe so. I think this is why the the grove-meister started this thread. It's a test. Of us.

Keep it. It'll be fine when the forum's marching.

Whatever the people vote for I will do my best to get enacted. I'm not an administrator, but our administrators are very good people who do what they do out of concern for the community. I am confident they will play along.

This poll is not a test. The staff is open to any suggestions concerning this issue : so we asked you too choose via your vote.

I will suggest you to vote in massive member, because after the vote it will be too late.

It's a facetious expression.

Without a late surge it looks like Genius Bar is spared the axe.

I think we should do these kinds of polls more often and lay side bets.

keep it, it's helped me out on morethan one occasion.
I think I think...therefore, I think I am.

We get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more...

Keep it. I've found it very useful on several occasions, so I'm sure many others have too.

And 2 days later Genius Bar is saved: 25 for keeping it, 16 wanting to be rid of it.

Thanks to our beloved community for its participation!
