I am just missing it? I was doing a poll on a different subject every Friday and was generating great discussion and went to do todays and I don't see the poll option.

Hopefully it's back to Mods only posting polls. The poll feature was abused and used too often.

By one or two posters.

This. Some of us were using them in a good way. I will be very disappointed if they are taken away after we just got the option to use them recently. I was really stoked to do a weekly discussion poll and it has gone very well so far.

Probably just for the draft because of the traffic to the site.

Thanks are currently disabled due to draft weekend traffic (at least that would be my guess), so it may be the same for polls as well.

Thanks are back but not the poll option. I really need this back, I know some users were going a little crazy at times but some posters were really using it effectively.

Can I get an answer if the poll feature is coming back? If it is not can I please have permission to post polls so I can do my weekly topic in the off topic forum? I promise not to post polls about anything else.

I think it was removed due to abuse, unfortunately I don't think adding polls is something that can be assigned on a user by user basis.

Really? I mean we barely had use of it and now it is gone? That is like taking away our ability to post because some posters abuse the rules. Almost all discussion forums have a poll option, I think it is pretty sad that we lose that option because a few people went crazy with it. I mean even if polls started clogging up the main board why not open a section on the board for polls like HF has? I am really disappointed as I had put together a list of topics to generate discussion and it was going very well and now it has to end because a few posters decided to make ridiculous polls? Seems extreme.

The way it used to work if folks requested polls and we would put them up. We can do that again.
