Polls



  • Polls are created by using BBcode-style markup, and unlike the old-style polls on Discourse, may appear anywhere within a topic, and does not require any markup in the topic title.

    The '5 minute' editing restriction (not related to the ninja edit window) still applies however - polls may not be added/modified within 5 minutes of the containing post being created.

    Polls may contain up to 20 options, and you can have multiple polls in a post by giving them a name.

    While users can change their vote at any time the poll is open, there is no facility to 'unvote' unless an option is explicitly added to indicate such a vote. A FILE_NOT_FOUND option at the end is the usual meme used around here.

    There is still no facility to see who has voted for which option(s)
