Excuse me? Why would that be dumb? In this very thread it has been explained, what the procedure for new forums is, if people can't follow it, then they can't expect a forum to be created. They can't just force their demands and posts like yours or the one I'll quote below are not helping their cause either.
A year ago.
In my PM I sent to the Amateur tennis mods I explained why our situation to get a college tennis forum is a bit different. I believe the mods should take more action on our case because it's something that's better long-term for the site, and current users votes (if we make a poll) won't reflect the need for the forum. But can I, or you, create a poll for it?
