I have only played humans and the odd half-orc. Also, one drow and one bugbear, both in 3.0 one-shots. But 95% of the time, it was humans.

Surprising. Somehow Half-Elves never gave me any incentive to play them. Probably I am too much of a power-gamer to play an Half Elf. :/

This brings tears to my eyes. In previous editions, power-gamers flocked to the Half-Elf.

I've checked my characters, and I've played every one of the core races. And I still like my gnomes.

I've played every race except a Gnome - but with a caveat.

I've not played a 1/2 orc since 1st ed. (Tellentra - 1/2 orc Cleric/Assassin in Temple of Elemental Evil. About 1987?)
The last 1/2 elf I played I resented doing so. 3.5 1/2 elves are real weak.

In voting, I discovered that I have played every race save for half-elves.
Heh, same here. Never played a gnome either.

Of note: My first AD&D character (and eventually most powerful) was a half-elf.

Strangely enough, despite my power-gaming self, I played only one Dwarf, and that was a Wizard. (Not that being a Dwarf hurts a wizard, but...)

Gnome isn't included in this poll. Ruins any legitimate comparison you may have wanted to make.

It also would have been good to identify which edition you're asking about. Necesary information.

And be sure to account in your margin of error elements including (1.) players who don't visit this board, (2.) respondents who answer dishonestly, and (3.) people who will never see your poll because they've put you on their ignore list.

Gnome doesn't need to be included Driddle. They've got their own poll.

Why should I have to specify edition? The gnome poll didn't. But, for the pedantic amongst us, this is not limited to any edition.

As far as the margin of error, well, not too worried about it. This is not proof. Simply fuel for the fire. And, hey, did you also account for these in your own gnome poll Driddle?

Imagine a giant eye-rolling smiley icon here. HUGE. Eyes spun all the way into the back of the icon's head.

It's bad business to compare two unrelated polls, with different formats and different polling samples over different periods. It's that simple.
