For any mobile users, I've just added a new poll to the site (bottom right on any news page) to gauge how well the site is doing so far on your mobile devices.
If it turns out to be fairly useless on mobile I will either make a separate mobile version or most likely just make it more mobile friendly. In the not-so-immediate future.
Also, big thanks to everyone who submitted a bug report on April 1st. [+]
Almost six years ago I published a poll to see which country's Black Metal scene you liked the most.
To be fair, the poll outstayed its welcome, and its premise was flawed to begin with. What was the point of asking users to choose a single country? Why would it matter? And why include some countries but not others? The truth is that not a lot of thought went into it, but at the time it seemed like a good follow-up to the previous poll (favourite genre).
I took the poll down some months ago, but for those wondering what the outcome was, here are the predictable and purposeless results:

We have just closed our first Black Metal poll where we asked you Which is your favourite subgenre of Black Metal?. Without diving into specifics too early on, our second poll also follows a simple theme: Which is your favourite regional Black Metal scene?.

While obviously almost every country has a ... [+]
In our first Black Metal poll, we asked you which was your favourite overall style or sub-genre of Black Metal. Well, after 200 votes, we have closed the poll, and the results are the following:
Pagan / Viking / Folk Black Metal is notably the most popular style at the moment among our userbase.
If you haven't noticed, we have already opened a brand new poll. This time around, we ask you Which is the country that has provided you with the majority of your favourite Black Metal albums?. [+]
In case you have tried to vote in our Poll during the last week or so but have been surprised to find that the Poll had already been sent, the reason for this is that a recently detected bug was preventing some users from correctly registering their votes.
This has now been fixed, and we apologize for any inconvenience or confusion that this bug may have caused. [+]
As you may have noticed, we have added a brand new Black Metal Poll sidebox on the front page, just below the Recommended Album sidebox. We will be hosting many polls over the coming weeks, months, and hopefully years, asking our users all manner of Black Metal related questions and maybe the occasional off-topic one too. To begin with, we will inaugurate the poll with a very simple question: What is your preferred style of Black Metal?
You don't need to register or sign in to vote, just scroll down to find the Black Metal Poll sidebox on the right hand side, pick your favourite subgenre and ... [+]
