Creating a Poll in a Thread

I've noticed that sometimes, people have trouble when creating polls, so I'm hoping this will be helpful to anyone who is thinking of creating a poll. As you can see, when you create a topic, it comes up with this:



Simply click on "CLICK HERE TO MANAGE THIS TOPIC'S POLL" and fill in all of the options accordingly:
Give your poll a title, and describe the content of the poll, and then click "ADD POLL CHOICE" in order to start adding your choices to the poll.

You will also notice an option to make it multiple choice: "MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTION?", check or uncheck this box according to whether or not you want it to be single or multiple choice.

For example:


You can also add multiple poll questions, by again clicking "ADD POLL QUESTION". This will allow you to ask more than one question within the poll, each with their independent answers.

For example:


Voting in a Poll

In order to vote in a poll, you simply check the box of the answer you want to vote for and click VOTE. If it's multiple choice you can pick more than one option.

However, if there is more than one question in a poll (like the example above), you MUST vote in both categories in order for it to be a valid vote. If you don't do this, it will come up with an error that reads:

QUOTE
The error returned was:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You did not choose a poll choice to vote against. Please go back and ensure you click on one of the radio buttons next to the choice you wish to vote for


Also, clicking NULL VOTE will mean that you forfeit your vote, so obviously try to avoid that if you want to vote!

Also, read the Guide to Making an Effective Poll
