Do we want a Big Christmas 2022 Poll? What should we ask?

In years gone by, we’ve done some Christmas wish-lists and other Big Polls. My question to you is: should we do another one this year?

Autocloses on 28th November.

You wish is (probably) my command. Ts and Cs* apply.

Damn I rushed my vote in the last poll because I didn’t read the options properly. Can we have another?

I’m going to pretend to be an analyst and ask the insightful questions…

What improvements would you like to see?

All the Plus features available for joint accounts? I might list them separately. (Or I might not. I don’t even know myself yet).

Also: wiki!

What’s the best way to refuse additional polling:

  • With a poll
  • With love and kindness
  • Deploy Tom Blom

These 3 please

Rather selfishly, just the export and custom categories. I’ll say virtual cards too for @duncang

Just giving this a bump to see if anyone else has things they’d like to add to the Big Christmas Poll.

Feel free to add to the wiki or to thread below :thread: :point_down:

Big news! We’ll do the Big Features Poll after Christmas (so the same time we did it this year).

But in the meantime, here’s a set of Community in 2022 Awards polls!
