I've heard that if you want the best matches (poly-wise), the best is to only answer poly-related questions, and mark them as "mandatory" when asked about how important it is. Then high match = poly, without all the other questions making super-mono people get a high compatibility score with you.

That's a really good point... It kind of makes my OCD go crazy with wanting to clear all the questions (I'm near 800 now..).. and make sure I did that.

Yeah I'm just a shade or two of crazy.

That must mean it's time to write some yourself.

How many are there?

It was really short, but I thought it went ok. Was totally proud of myself for actually doing it, since I'm normally kind of a chicken.
