  • How do I create a poll

    Want to create a poll and post is easy to do.

    Start by deciding what the poll is to be about. Try to keep the choices simple.

    Decide what area you will create the poll in.

    Create a new topic and type in the name of your poll

    ( Optional ) Enter a short statement what the poll is trying to accomplish

    Under the "Create New Topic" you will see three images...a Camera, a Link and a 3 Bar Graph

    Select the 3 Bar Graph

    You should now see three fields ( "Add a poll answer ) where you can type in your poll selections. Below the third field there is an option ( "Add another answer" ) to add more fields.

    You are limited to 30 characters per answer.

    Select "Set poll timeout" if you want the poll to end on a certain date / time

    Select "Allow multiple choice" if folks taking the poll can select more than one answer

    Select "Make votes public" if you want to display who voted for what. I recommend you do not select this option.

    Once you are done select the RED POST button at the bottom RIGHT and click on that to post your poll.
