Default Polls?

Can normal members not post polls? If we can how, I see no options for it?

i thought so, if you click on a section, it appears at the top next to create new topic.

I don't think so. I didn't have the rights to post a poll until I became a mod........yet I have seen polls posted by other members who are not mods.........

Default RE: Polls?

As far as I know, polls can only be posted by staff members. I'm not sure why we made that decision, but it was early on when the site was still fairly new that it was changed to only allow staff members to post polls. It can be reopened for discussion again if enough members feel we need to open it to all members.

Polls are active in various sections of the forum. I think Patrick would be the best one to answer where they are active... I know that the old Detailing section had polls active...

Still has two open. I set a time limit on them, pinned them to the top,at the end of May they will be closing. The person who started the polls though is not a staff member...not that I know of anyway.

Well I dont see why you(whoever owns the site) wouldnt want regular members posting polls. Every board Im a member on allows it, they have a lot bigger problems than people posting stupid polls. I guess I see no problem with it but Im just a sitepeon so my say doesnt go that far.

Default RE: Polls?

Not to beat a dead horse, but something like this could be reviewed by Senior Moderators before being posted. Say if I wanted to take a poll on what paint/body kit/stereo (maybe even with pictures and links to actual products as well) I (or anyone) should get. I think it would be a fun addition to the forum!
