do you think gig should want polls? do you think we should have more polls?
What? Where?...Lt Major Burns said:it's a very discreet checkbox at the bottom of the new thread screen, which then leads you onto the poll screen after pressing ok.
Thank goodness it is not just me! I remember looking at the FAQ several times (months ago) and wondering why I couldn't see this option anywhere. I've compared what I see with the screenshot (thanks, Cheryl ) and I have all the options... except for the poll one!TommyWillB said:What? Where?...
I can't see a "Poll" checkbox anywhere when trying to add a Thread to the Cafe?!?
I looked both on the New Thread and it's Preview page...
Is is just me?
There used to be a place to select various "skins"... I can't find it, but maybe I've got some odd legacy skin??
Well I have given every year several times and I still have no option for polls on new threads just like other old forum timers. I have used several browser (Safari, Camino, Firefox) and the poll funtion does not work.mdnky said:I'm going off my memory here, which can be spotty at times, but I believe (pretty sure) that you have to be a contributing member to use the poll feature. It's been that way for a couple of years now.
So, are the people who can post polls, but aren't moderators, all "supporting members" (i.e. those who donated money)? If they are, I guess that explains it. If not, then I'm still confused!ScottW said:OKAY... The scoop from the horses mouth....
Many Many moons ago... an execitive decision was made which limited the ability to create polls to moderators/admins and folks who where "Supporting Members" in a financial category.
During that period in history... when you donated, you where given special access, noted as a contributing member and given permissions to make polls.
At some point that program ended and nothing ever changed.
I suppose it is time for a change?
Actually, I don't think that's too much of an exaggeration at all. It was almost that bad...every single post in the cafe seemed to have a poll attached to it back then...which was kinda annoying IMO.fryke said:Basically everybody just added a poll to each and every of his/her threads... (Okay, I'm exaggerating, I guess...)
I am not a moderator, but I HAVE $contributed.bbloke said:Thanks for the heads up, Gig'.
