Creating Forums Polls?

Is there a way we (the readers and non-11W staff) could create polls to see the thoughts of fellow Buckeye Nation on this site?  I'm talking something like this:


Which 2nd year player will have the biggest impact this year?

A)  Joey Bosa

B)  Dontre Wilson

C)  Vonn Bell

D)  Ezekiel Elliot


Then I would ask for us to actually see the voting result percentages while posting our answers and discussing.  Thanks

At first glance I feel like it's a good idea but then when I think about it, a lot of meaningless/duplicate forums will be created.

I was throwing out an example.  Just thought it would be an interesting way to see how other readers feel about certain topics.

I like the idea. I don't think a poll feature will bring any more duplicates than there are regular thread duplicates.

To quote his mother, "... it is 2 Ls and 2 Ts ...".   (Elloitt)  Sorry for the correction.  In general I am a poor speller, but I feel bad when I spell someone's name incorrectly.

I think we leave the polls to the staff.   But we could do it the Miles' way, let the members vote on it.

It's also "I" before"o". XD

Damn it, happens to me everytime.  Thanks for the correction.  My name is mis-spelled all the time, so I feel bad right now.  Plus I am always hitting the wrong letters on this damn touch screen key pad.  If I have an important text to send I have one of my kids type it.

If Braxton doesn't get healthy and stay healthy it could be JT Barrett!!! ( 2Rs, 2Ts ).

Ahhh, here's the right spot...

It will turn into:

Does my fart smell like ______

1) Eggs

2) Cabbage

3) Burnt vasaline

4) All of the above

So yes, count me in for allowing user polls in forums.
