    First post in this forum not from Russ: cool! 😵

    OK: idea goes something like this:
    A New Poll has a first post, where a question is asked and we have either of two answer formats:

    1) Force polls to be yes/no/no preference questions
    2) More complicated interface for multi-choice questions

    The answers are shown much like recs (counts of Y/N/No opinion/other).

    Things to think about:
    allow further posts, or just the question?
    spoil ballot option always provided for polls using Leading questions (E.g. Have you always liked celery?)
    erm... well other things.

    I think polls would be great.

    Agreed. Hell, even Mr. X's forum has polls.

    "He is a good player?" - No...
    "d3 is a good opening?" - R U sure?

    Its up to the poster. They may be simple questions just in their own right, or they may be polls based on conversations in other forums.

    Outright questions (examples):
    Do you like celery? (I'm voting no)
    Should the voting age be lowered to 16?
    Is d4 your standard opening move?
    Is the film "animal house" actually funny?
    Is Elvis dead?
    ... etc.

    Examples of questions based on recent forums might be:
    Bush or Kerry?
    Have you ever used a computor to make a move for you?
    Was the US acting reasonably when refusing Mr Islam (a.k.a. Cat Stevens) entry to the USA?
    Is multiclanism better than polyclanism?

    And so on.

    Actually, I don't think a new forum called Polls is exactly what I'm after but just the ability to create a Poll thread within the existing forums, this is quite common in other forum software packages I've come across.

    I think Russ said b4 that this was an idea that he wants to incorporate into the forums.

    Don't know what the timescales for that are though.

    Your guess is as good as mine, I didn't even know it was on the agenda.

    Maybe we should be allowed to vote on having open polls 😉
