    TAKEN FROM FORUM NOTES:

    When you post a new thread, you may also have the option to create a poll.

    This allows you to ask a question and specify a number of possible responses. Other members will then be able to vote for the response they wish, and the results of the voting will be displayed in the thread.

    An example poll might be:

    What is your favorite color?

    * Red
    * Blue
    * Yellow
    * Green
    * Sky-blue
    * Pink with yellow spots

    To create a poll when you post a new thread, simply click the 'Yes, post a poll with this thread' checkbox at the bottom of the page, and set the number of possible responses you want to include.

    When you click the submit button, you will be taken to the poll creation page, where you can specify the question and the list of responses you want to include.

    You may also want to specify a time limit for the poll, so that (for example) it stays open for voting for only a week. ;) :D
