    He's a sneaky one all right. The thread title is, "Should Polls be removed?" but the actual poll question is "Should polls be an option for all posters" or something like that.

    Stinker.

    :D

    Maybe we just need a poll forum, then players can link to their poll.
    I have to admit, I love polls even when I have not yet made any on this forum.:lick:

    I voted yes... however, there should be a limit of some sort so we dont have to filter through pages of nonsense polls

    I don't see the choice for "they should be an option for everyone but Rico" so I can't vote. :thumbdown:

    One big problem with this poll

    Title of the thread is: Should Polls be removed?

    The poll question is: Should polls be an option for all posters?

    If a poster do not read the poll question, he may No and really mean Yes or the other way around.

    Also, is it possible to edit a poll without the votes get erased?

    Well...if my option mentioned above were included...it would take care of at least one poll n00b. :D

    On the issue of being able to edit a poll after there are votes, that is a bad thing, and would render polls completely meaningless. If any wording was changed or even options added, the previous responses would not reflect what the edited poll asked.

    I voted that players should be able to create polls. Maybe there should be a forum only for polls......

    I think one of the polls was changed after I voted and I could not revote. I agree is very bad if it is possible

    Idea's den? But it doesn't cover all. It's only polls for suggestions.

    I found it very amusing that this is a poll about polls. :thumbup1:

    I like polls but people abuse them and i can see why they didn't allow them on the old forums.

    I, too, managed to click the wrong option based off of the thread title.

    I say polls stay and polls can be made by all. How can a poll thread be any worse or different than any non-poll thread? I see them as harmless, and sometimes fun.
