    How to start a poll

    Yes--I'm still new. I'd like to know how to start a poll, and if there was a previous poll concerning my subject---how could I find it instead of duplicating the thread? Thanks.

    Use the drop down menu titled Thread Tools - Click on that and then click the 4th one down...Add a poll to this thread.

    Thank you. I'd just hate to start a poll that's been done before, even if it's not that recent. I've been on alot of forums, and 'seasoned' members sometimes hate to see repeats as well. I know I would. How can I find those older polls to avoid this. Should I even worry about stuff like that?
    BTW---I can't seem to find the link for 'thread tools'. I've been know to be stupid in the past---just don't tell anyone I told you so!

    Okay---this is all the link shows me. Maybe I'm on some kind of probation period or something? Maybe my computer is just as dumb as I am? If I can't fix it, I'll just post up my question for members later. Thanks.

    When you creat a new thread there should also be a option to create a poll under the box where you type everything in

    Yup, only staff can add a poll after a thread has been created. If you ever add a thread and later want a poll, just create a new thread, add the poll as Bud said and PM one of us to delete the old one or merge it. I'm not sure how you would do a search to locate only polls....
