• How to create polls in the community

    Creating a poll is an easy way to add an extra dimension to your thread.

    They are useful if you want to get other community members’ opinions when there are various options to your question, beyond a simple yes or no.

    Polls can be a fun way to talk about an issue in the Off Topic section, such as this poll created by @Bev who wanted to know how long members of the community spend in the shower!

    All members can create polls - just follow these simple steps:

    Create a new thread
    Give it a title and write some introductory words explaining what the thread and the poll is about. Most importantly, click/tap on ‘Additional options’ before you post your thread.

    Click/tap on ‘Additional options’
    This expands a new area which allows you to add extra items to your new thread, such as an icon and a poll. Tick the ‘post a poll’ box and choose the number of options you want your poll to have - the default number is 4. Then click/tap on the pink ‘Post’ button.

  • How do I get to view polls on my PC?

    I can see them on a tablet, but not my Win10 PC.

    PS. My favourite cheeses are Stilton and Brie with truffles.

  • Hey @Oakbank
    That looks like a bug, which I've reported to our tech team. Nice one for flagging.
    The poll works fine in Chrome browser on a Windows machine. Looks like Internet Explorer doesn't like our polls at the moment.
    I'm sure the team will be able to fix it! I'll get back to you here with updates soon.

  • Hi @Oakbank
    We've tweaked our polls
    They now appear at the top of the thread, inside of being embedded into the first post.
    Could you check that they work OK for you?
