To +Patrick Healy.

That's one way to do a poll.  Another is to create one on Google Docs.  Check out my about section for an example, if you're interested in something more advanced.

Very cool. I've used this before. I generally use it as a contact form. The only issue I have with it is that you can't really see results. They have to be updated or posted somewhere else. I dig it though. I would love it if G+ incorporated polls. That would make life easier.

Can anyone see this poll but me?

Testing to see if there is a way to put polls in G+. Just +1 the comment that coincides with your vote.

+Mark Traphagen  I think this works better regionally. That is why you said someone else should take it over in the last post. Break the nominations into regions have a Moderator for each region and you can be the tie breaker.

Waiting on +Mark Traphagen to do his abdication and name the future king/queen :) I am not interested in leading. Moderating to keep it clean is enough for me.

To be honest I haven't. I'm more of a plus 1 man. I could share one now if you like?

Reflections on Campaign #1: Joshua Fisher

We launched and completed our first Plus Bombers campaign in the last 24 hours. If you didn't see the wrap up post that revealed our positive prank to it's "victim" it's at https://plus.google.com/u/0/107022061436866576067/posts/AVugDkC5onp

I think it was a success. Joshua has been informed and he responded exactly as we would hope. He was deeply appreciative, loved the idea, and has joined us so that he can be on future campaigns and pay it forward.

I'd welcome hearing from those of you who participated. What could we have done better? How can we communicate better to get more of the community participating?

I have other ideas and questions for you, but I'll wait to hear some of your feed back first. One thing though....

I'd love to have some more moderators, so let me know if you're interested. Please only apply if you're serious about helping out, not only with keeping us spam free, but helping out with campaigns. Thanks all!

+Sergey Andrianov  We'd have to get buy in from that from everyone, and also have it highly organized (splitting up the members among moderators as the group grows, because G+ limits the number of people you can notify at one time). Sounds like a lot of work, but until Communities have some kind of internal messaging ability for moderators, that may be what we have to do.

About this community

Plus Bombers is a for-fun community project to help make some unsuspecting Plusser King/Queen for a day. Each week we will select one unsuspecting Plus user who normally doesn't get a lot of attention and work together to make one of his or her posts go viral. This is a "positive prank" that is meant to encourage this user and possibly build her following. Rules: 1. Nominations for the Plusser to "bomb" can be submitted by any member in the Nominations category. Post a link to their profile. DO NOT +MENTION THEM! Please limit you nominations, & explain why they deserve this honor. 2. Nominees should have less than 5000 followers but be daily active on G+. 3. The mods of the site will choose the "target" each week. 4. Plans for the bombing campaign will be posted in the Campaigns category. 5. Members who post links here (other than nominations), tip off the "target" before the end of the campaign, or in any way abuse this Community or its intentions will be banned immediately. 6. Have fun, and do this with love and a spirit of giving!

Too bad there's no polls in here so we can easily nominate a few people and just vote on them.

What a shame. It was a really cool idea. I think the challenge is to get others to promote someone that they don't know for the warm fuzzy feeling that comes with doing something nice for someone else. Strange people will volunteer for charity work or give blood but not get on board with simply clicking a few buttons. I've seen it for years and it never made sense.

+Lori Friedrich +Rand Wilson and +Alex Garcia are now co-moderators of this community. 

I'll be starting a private post with the three of you later this evening to discuss plans for the community and to move toward our next Bombing.

I want to nominate my good friend Luke. He is really new to G+ and only has like 250 followers. This guys photography is amazing. Truly great perspective and composition and has helped me learn quite a bit. So would like to help him get the following he deserves. Check out his work here. https://plus.google.com/u/0/104198501192053810292/photos
