[EDIT: Poll Test completed. More info soon will be in sticky comment below]

Unfortunately we don’t have a Poll Thread option but there is still a way to kinda make one with the current tools on hand.

1- start a Text thread

2- add your title, body text, and, most importantly, your poll options in the body.

3- create comments as your poll choices. 1st comment OPTION 1, 2nd comment OPTION 2, etc. See comments for format example.

4- count the upvotes on your option comments only. things will get messy because people upvote all comments, but if you clearly distinguished comments as OPTION 1- this, OPTION 2- that, etc, then you shouldn’t have a problem being able to tally everything.

5- create an additional comment where users can leave comments and other opinions.

6- add/edit a flair as POLL THREAD and enjoy!

OPTIONAL- Create a "Participation" comment where every user who participates upvotes the comment. This is good because it will give you an idea of how many users took part of your poll. I personally dont add it because it adds complexity, but there are certain circumstances where a user would like to know how many users interacted with the poll.

PLEASE REFRIAN FROM COMMENT/REPLYING TO THREAD OR POLL OPTIONS! PLEASE TRY TO COMMENT/REPLY ONLY IN THE DESIGNATED COMMENT AREA BELOW

How to distinguish comments as green? Use an asterisk BEFORE and AFTER the word or sentence(s) you'd like to distinguish. Using 2 asterisks before and after (totaling 4 asterisks) will make text bold Like this

Why is my text formating messed up? To start a new line, pres the ENTER/RETURN KEY TWICE. For some reason, pressing the enter once doesn't seem to do anything and makes all your text in basically one line. Remember... Double Spacing to start new line.

-- POLL DETAILS START HERE--

Ok, so first unofficial poll. Remember, JUST UPVOTE the comment which corresponds with the option you pick. Comment ONLY in the "Designated Comments" comment by replying to that comment.

What are you most excited about with the breaking hunter Biden laptop habbenings?

Option 1 Wanna see him get indicted for CP

Option 2 Wanna see the shady emails

Option 3 screw the laptop, Ukraine/Russia is where it’s at

Not the best poll, rather, I’m just testing it. Let’s see how things work out

P.S. it’s best not to comment in the poll threads to help keep things clean.

P.S.S. If a mod creates a LOCKED poll, you can STILL reply to the comment created by the mod.

Ok so the poll test seems to have been successful. The most voted will naturally stay at the top while the others fall behind, though still staying towards to top, while comments generally stayed under the comments post. The poll results are constantly ongoing because you can’t really stop upvotes but the general format, while unlocked, seems to have worked fairly well.

We encourage polls posts in this format until we can get an actual “poll” post option

BUT YOUR UPDOOT/CLOUT/KARMA HARVESTING!!!

How so?? And for what reason?? I could just use downvotes but doesn’t seem natural. I’m using the upvotes as a TOOL and not as some “<<<< THIS MANY PEDES…” type garbage. Not like I can cash my karma in for some special prize or something. If you have a better suggestion without it looking like updoot harvesting, I will gladly hear you out.

I wouldn't say "screw the laptop because Ukraine is where it's at" necessarily but I'm most excited for The Ukraine Connections on the laptop to become part of mainstream culture.

After all, it's my belief that the MSM spin on the current thing in The Ukraine is to cover for the laptop coming out.

I know fren… I’m just testing the format to see how things go, and to see where we can improve

Since we can comment on the poll (good idea since we like to toss ideas around with others), I’d suggest an “Other (leave a comment/reason)” option be included in your main options.

For example, in this particular test poll, I’d sure like to see him (and others) finally indicted, would like the emails to get out to the public and don’t feel any pressing need to focus exclusively on one happening or another (multitasking works just fine). What I’d really like from this laptop-from-hell exposure is for it to have an impact on waking up the brainwashed leftists (and others) to start destroying their false beliefs that the Potatus family are good people, that our three-letter-agencies are working to protect decent Americans and that their media tells them the truth.

With an Other+reason option you, as OP, could edit the post and add (to your options) whatever seems to be gaining traction.

Just mho.

Edit: I realize this section allows for comments, but if an option that was overlooked (or otherwise not included in the initial poll) is “strong enough” I’d like to see it at the top. I, personally, read through the bottom of almost every post I choose to read, but I’m guessing many don’t have the time or inclination to do so.

There is a comment here comment listed to offer opinions. Though, I wouldn’t want people commenting under the options because then it would disorganize the whole thread

Yes, I edited my initial comment on this with an explanation. Your response came in before the edit was completed, apparently.

I understand it can get unwieldy. Then shills can push topic-sliding, etc. My issue was in placement.

For example, in this poll, I wouldn’t have voted at all because, while I agree with two options and disagree with one, none of them are the real reason why I want this issue to gain traction.

It’s just my opinion. My intent is not to be critical, but something I’ve come across in viewing other online polls. Thank you for your efforts and I think soliciting feedback from the community for the poll topic in general before putting it in place is a good idea, too.

I've never tried to turn off comments - I presume this is a mod-only feature. Perhaps a "poll" type post could be added that has this capability and/or default other than the OP can post the options? I.e. with presumably less effort than actually coding a "poll" type post that actually has the options, does the tallying etc?

PolishBaldEagle [S] 2 points ago +2 / -0

I could’ve locked the comments but left comments unlocked to simulate as if any other non mod user would be posting a poll. Basically did this for you guys rather than a “mod only” type of thing. As for hard coding a poll, would need to REALLY dig into it

Using A) B) C) will be easier than numbers for something like this.

PolishBaldEagle [S] 1 point ago +1 / -0

Thanks fren. I’ll weigh out the options and try it out on a future poll thread. Note taken

1
PepeSee 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yep, and the simulation is already showing some clutter :)

I'm thinking like (simple in principle, no idea about codebase)

  • New type of post when creating post in dropdown (poll)
  • Comments off (no choice, simpler) unless user == OP
  • Voting remains on obviously (if same logic controls comments AND voting being on, this could be annoying/more stuff to change)

A new "poll" type post that actually handles everything would clearly be a decent bit of work/additional code/testing/bugs etc so while fancy it would be way overkill vs MVP type thing.

I understand the logic behind creating a poll but this win is part of communities and they would basically have to create that option

Option 1. And just to ask; Does it include seeing the bottom of his prison slippers violently twitching before gently swaying in the air? Maybe with another set of shuffle worn loafers dangling next to his?

Comment isn’t required. Just upvote the poll comment itself (in your case, the Option 1 comment). The upvotes are what will be tallied, not the comments

I did this on TDW when Dike Penis betrayed DJT on Jan 6.

Upvote = Yes

Downvote = No

It worked for the most part, but there were a handful of people making fun of me; accusing me of making up an excuse to get unnecessary upvotes / karma whoring lol.
