You might notice some polls on this website, or even wish you could add one — and the way they are set up might be a bit confusing, so this is an explanation.

There are two types of polls we have here: activity polls and sitewide polls.

Activity Polls

Activity polls are just for logged-in members. You can create a poll on your profile’s activity page by viewing the bottom row of buttons at the top where you post an activity.

You can select the visibility of the poll. However, public polls are only open to other logged-in members. A visitor who visits the poll on your profile will see it as read-only.

You can share your poll outside of your profile by using any of the social sharing buttons for the poll activity after it is posted — but to respond to the poll, someone will have to register and log in.

Sitewide Polls

We also have sitewide polls. These polls may be used in posts.

Members can create a new poll — you need to register, log in and then access the Create a Sitewide Poll tab which you’ll find under the More tab in your membership profile.

If you want us to create a new post for your poll, we can do that. You can also create a poll if you’re writing a post for this website and want to create a poll. You’ll find more information on the page with the form.

You can, of course, share sitewide polls to your profile but they are not posted there by default, though if we create a post for you, that WILL be shared to your profile.
