You should have made the poll a yes/maybe/no thing. I voted yes, and TF is here a lot of the time, but I wouldn't say he's here a lot more than any admin. Just because you don't see them doesn't mean they're not doing their job.
I could and should have done it that simple, but I wrote the questions before I was aware I could fill in an intro to the poll explaining the poll. That's why the questions are not just Yes/Maybe/No.

I'm pretty sure Duff is on at some point almost every day, I see him on a lot, so there's an admin around more than we think. I don't know if another admin would help (I don't know what the fuck's going on any more), but Fitty is the best choice, in my opinion. He's done a great job as a mod.
So, I support Fitty for admin, but I have no clue if we need a stronger admin presence or not.
I have seen Duff online a few times the last weeks, but maybe he (and other admins) are here alot more often that I know. I've seen Psy one time this year and Sheep not once, unless I've forgot it. Maybe they are here often but don't hang around long enough for me to spot them.

The reason we only have three admins right now is for security reasons. Accounts are being attacked. If an admin account gets cracked, they can delete everything on the site and the forums with a few clicks.
TreeFitty does a brilliant job, there's no denying that. As it stands, we are successfully keeping the forums under control. I'm constantly tweaking settings in the Admin CP and he passes information on to me every day. It works, and it's safe. If we get to the point where I can't deal with the admin side of the forums on my own, I have no problem making him admin.
Hope that clears the situation up a bit.
The security is one thing I didn't consider, but I don't know if more admin accounts necessarily lower the security, if everyone use a strong password. Any attacker would just pick an admin account and try to crack it, and I don't know if a fourth admin account would make it much easier for him? Just use strong passwords, we don't want an enemy of the site as admin lol.
It sounds like you are the one admin running this site?
Just to make sure nothing is misunderstood, I want to say that I did not think the site is poorly managed. It was only about giving TF some more tools.
