How To Make A Poll

Discourse has some nifty tools, including some poll tools.


When you post a poll, please remind users:

  • Whether the poll is binding or not
  • When voting closes

After voting closes, please:

  • Post a quick summary of the results (not the raw score, but what it means, the follow-on effects),
  • Flag the topic so a Moderator can close the thread (after your summary).

Note for Moderators: Closing the Topic does NOT close the poll. Remember to close both.
