New Feature: Polls!
Okay, okay, so it's not really a new feature. We've had polls on CAPTalk for some time, however creating a new poll was previously restricted just to site staff. We've decided that we're going to open up this privilege to all registered users with 50 or more posts.
Users who have 50+ posts have demonstrated, generally, that they know their way around the site quite well and have a good feel for the discussion community here.
We will see how this goes and consider changes to the permissions as necessary. As of now, anybody with 50 or more posts is allowed to start a new topic with a poll and edit polls that they've created. If you're in that group, you'll already see the poll button has been added to your forum view.
If you want to test out the feature and see how it works, feel free to post sample polls in The Playpen
If you happen to have less than 50 posts, but really really
want to create a poll, message one of the administrators.
