    Creating and Participating in Polls[/h] You may notice that some threads on this forum also include a section where you can vote on an issue or question. These threads are called 'polls'.
    How do I create a new poll?
    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.

    Click "Post New Thread" - Not "Reply to Thread"
    Scroll down the page past the "Post icons" and "Tags" section
    Look for "Additional Options" and it is on the bottom of that section under "Post a Poll"

    Hope this helps.

    Figured it out - nothing to do with your browser.

    Posting a poll is part of the annual members features:

    [FONT=arial, helvetica, clean, sans-serif]I would have thought that a forum master could do it anyway - just depends on what way forum roles were assigned.[/FONT]
