I'm not sure what happened to the poll option but having something like 30 to 40 options on one poll would make things stupid. Maybe maxing it at 10 would have been better.
As for the eStore, some of the options were never open so they removed them from the store. I remember there use to be an option for buying 50 post for 1,000 points. I used that several times. I wish we still had that option because then post counts for the site wouldn't matter but instead the quality of the post.
The gifts you still have, they just show up on your profile rather than the boards. Which IMO, is better looking.
