Creating and Participating in Polls
You may notice that some threads on this forum also include a section where you can vote on an issue or question. These threads are called 'polls'. How do I create a new poll? When you post a new thread, you may also have the option to create a poll. This allows you to ask a question and specify a number of possible responses. Other members will then be able to vote for the response they wish, and the results of the voting will be displayed in the thread. An example poll might be: What is your favorite color?
  • Red
  • Blue
  • Yellow
  • Green
  • Sky-blue
  • Pink with yellow spots
To create a poll when you post a new thread, simply click the 'Poll’ tab located above the reply box, beside the ‘Discussion’ tab, scroll down to set the number of possible responses you want to include. You may also want to specify a time limit for the poll, so that (for example) it stays open for voting for only a week. When you are finished, click the ‘post reply’ button and your poll will be created and ready for members to respond to.
