    Can we add another option? All of the above.

    how could all of the above be a reasonable answer if the clarification by the OP was:
    "pick the answer that best describes your MOST OFTEN USED dive configuration. Obviously, some switch depending on the cave, but what's your go-to for the majority of your dives now?"
    hard to believe that one dives an exact split of 25% Backmount 25% Sidemount 25% Backmount Rebreather and 25% Sidemount Rebreather..
    Will there not always for any diver be a most often used configuration (i.e. the fall back option)..
    ok it might change with the further progression in diving but I am sure there always will be a most often used configuration..

    The "other" option is missing. Chest mount rebreathers do exist (the Triton). Cave freediving is not unheard of, either. If you make a poll, at least make it a complete categorization.

    Most used configuration: "switching soon"

    This poll tells us that 46+3% of those that participated, dive in sidemount configuration.

    For the umpteenth time, we were unconcerned with outliers, so no... the other options need not apply. It was derived from another thread comparing the amount of backmount vs sidemount divers, because the original thread OP thought the numbers were more of a 25/75% split, and as you can conclude, it's closer to 50/50.

    And how DARE you even MENTION cave freediving! Preposterous!
