How to start a poll?
« on: October 05, 2013, 05:30:03 AM »
I'm either as blind as bubbles, or I don't have access to starting a poll.  If it's the latter, how does one get access to make polls?

I disabled the poll option because so many people we're overusing it and posting really stupid polls.

     How many people agree with this?

      (1) I agree
      (2) I agree, to a certain extent
      (3) I agree, but not entirely
      (4) I agree, but not sure why
      (5) I disagree
      (6) I disagree and wish AIDS on MV for depriving us from polls
      (7) I disagree, but only wish Shingles on MV
      (16) I disagree, and called Morrocco's Foreign Ministry to report MV for being CIA mole
      (9) Not sure, what was the question.

         You have until Tuesday, June 10, 2036 to respond. First three answers will be ignored. Eighth answer will require $446 dollar fee.

Ah man, I was just about to do an only semi-stupid poll.  I'm wondering if maybe you could limit polls to it's own sub-forum, so they're out of the way but still possible.

I agree zeebo.. they're fun for those who like them.  In their own little sub forum would be awesome, and MV, I bet you it would drive more traffic to the site.  People search for polls.

There goes my Politics Thread poll idea: ""Obama:  Pedagogue, Demagogue, Ideologue, or Yes/All?""

Thanks, intartubes ...

I guess it's allright, I am not sure which I would vote for anyhow, they all seem like good answers and I think I could provide cogent arguments for each...

Can you set it up so only one member can start a poll, or polls can be created in only one thread?

It would be great if Art Bell conducted polls on various topics - starting with 'from 1 to 10 how much do you give a shit about bumper music?'.

Another one could be on whether to have Ed Dames, Richard Hoagland, etc on the new show - yes, no, no more than once a year, etc

Although he may not even be interested in that

the per user permission is possible, i don't know about the per thread... although that's probably possible, too.

How do I do it?  What stops people from voting more than once?

MV disabled it.  That'll probably be the answer to more of your questions.

I see that, yes, from 2013.  But what is this 2015 remark below about per-user permission still being up in 2015?

PB, when there is a poll, I can vote multiple times.  Is that normal?

Please specifically list each of my administrative decisions you disapprove of, and I'll explain why I made each of those decisions.  Since this subject already comprises a quarter of your posts, you should excel at this assignment.   

I really do annoy you!

How do I cross-quote?  Like, quote from here, but post in in another thread?

click the quote button, highlight the resulting text and code, then copy and paste it to the other thread in a new post.

You should be able to create polls in your own threads.
