    When making a post, go to near the bottom of the page, and under "Additional Options" check "post a poll"....

    Polls are interesting, but if one is going to do more than the very occasional poll, there is a forum for "Polls Only" and that is where they should be posted instead of flooding the other forums with polls.

    THANK YOU for re-emphasizing the BB rule - only rarely will be allow a poll to "stay" in the General, Theology or Versions forums. We just had one rather ineffective one in the Theology that tied to a previously-closed topic, so allowed it to stand.

    Visit the "Polls" Forum (it's for Irish, Spanish and Chinese as well) :saint:

    The occasional poll is not bad especially when linked to a subject. But, it seems that they can multiply very rapidly in the wrong places.
