Lock this thing up and throw away the key, as the thread originator has no interest in being serious about it. Why are we wasting time with it?
Why do you keep saying that? I am absolutely serious about this.
I keep saying it because you're clearly not serious about it. You refuse to have the poll contain any validity, and then you remove options arbitrarily which can't help but skew the poll itself into bad results.
I am serious about the topic, which is why I originally PM'ed you about it, yet you continue to bring the conversation back to the thread. It is clear that your intentions are to get the topic shuttered, and your methodology is to have an enormous off-topic argument. Unfortunately, you ignored my PM and brought it here, so I am required to respond here, and any suggestions moderator should first, please, discuss this with me before shuttering the topic (which is Woodruff's goal.)

I don't believe I am being rude at all, but that is a highly ironic statement on your part.
Please explain the irony. I have continued to post here to gather support for a singular symbol that can go head-to-head with the "?" I have done that from the beginning and supported any and all contributions to the topic deemed "entries" into a contest whose goal is to determine which symbol would best replace the "?" I feel that coming up with a consensus on one replacement is better and a more intersting topic than simply stating the following suggestion: "Replace the "?"" I feel that if all I ever said was "Replace the "?"" I would have received many replies saying, "Replace it with what?" So, to spare myself, I came up with a few ideas of my own and solicited the community for additional contributions. The topic IS NOT
"Should we replace the "?"" The topic is "Replace the ? icon with "Basic Training" icon" and I am attempting to find out what the community feels is the best "Basic Training" icon. But it doesn't matter what I wrote here, because all you care about is having a debate over whether the ? should be replaced at all. Fine. Start your own topic. Stop trying to silence my desire to see where the community stands on which symbol would be best to be put into a suggestion to replace the ?.

There's no point in having the issue at all if the ? were to be decided here and now. Sadly, you're unwilling to "take that chance", I guess...you're allowing either your ego or your desire to have your own way get in the way of it.
Yes, there is a point in having the discussion. There are people out there with ideas and artistic ability. I'd like to hear from them. I have heard from some and I am supporting those ideas.
If you have further person attacks like this one: "you're allowing either your ego or your desire to have your own way," then please take it to PM. There is no place for it in this suggestion nor in this forum. You have received one PM about it, you can start by replying to that PM.
As for this suggestion, the contest still runs! As time goes on, if there a no further suggestions, I will amend the poll to narrow it down to the top 3, then the top 2...and finally, when enough input has been contributed, and votes have been cast, I will put the contest winner up against the ?
