Poll feature for the Forum


Hello all!
I think it would be awesome, if we could get a Poll/Vote-Feature for the Forum. That way someone could ask a specific question, give several answer options and let the user vote for their answer. Maybe about 10 (max) answers or so. :laughing:

For example:

That way it would be easier to see the user feedback combined. :sunglasses:



Hmm, I always found polls (not pools :stuck_out_tongue:) gimmicky. They never garner a lot of attention outside of the few active members and the odd lurkers. But why not?


Hmm, a poll would suggest some kind of democracy in action… Whereas I think we have a benign tyranny here…


First poll: I vote for tyranny :slight_smile:


It’s a nice idea, but I believe these forums are powered by an outside force, not actually editable by the devs.

If they’re capable of having polls implemented, then I guess it’d be fine for feature suggestions or one-off topics. So long as everyone doesn’t start adding them for the sake of having them I’d be fine with it.


Do polls work in replies in this forum? :stuck_out_tongue:

Poll: What's Your VIP Level?
Option to create a survey post

Well I guess that’s settled then!

How can someone answer ‘no’ or ‘I don’t know’? :stuck_out_tongue:


We should take a poll to see if people want polls…


Do we really, really, really want polls on this forum?

  • Of course!
  • Oh, please.
  • Couldn’t care less
  • Special option for @melkathi. Mel, click here. :smile:

Ha, brilliant work gang!
For future reference, the Gems of War forums run on the Discourse platform, so anything for that should work here such as poll code.


@MarvelKit it seems there are melkathi IMPostors out there !!! My vote is leading the poll!


Defeated by my own 10 character requirement


This just made my day!


Well, MarvelKit provoked it :laughing:
