|Lots of people seem to be having difficulty adding polls so here's a quick tutorial.
Firstly, when you are in the correct forum, click the 'New Topic' button and you will see this screen.
Step 1: Enter the subject of your poll. Don't bother including the word 'poll' as this will be added automatically.
Step 2: Enter the text of your post explaining the purpose of your poll and maybe how you voted and why.
Step 3: Scroll down to the 'Add a Poll' section and enter the question itself e.g. Is Links 2003 the best golf sim?
Step 4: Enter the first of your choices of answer.
Step 5: Click the 'Add option' button.
The screen will redraw and you should see something like this.
Step 6: Enter the second choice of answer.
Step 7: Click the 'Add option' button. The screen will redraw again.
Repeat steps 6 and 7 until you have added all your possible answers. Your screen should look something like this.
Note: There will always be a blank option at the end of the list - this is correct.
If you need to correct any spelling mistakes in the poll answers, correct the option and click 'Update'.
Step 8: Click the 'Submit' button and (provided IE hasn't crashed - don't ask me why!!) your poll and message will be posted.
Note: Clicking the 'Preview' button will (in my experience) only preview the post message and not the poll itself.
Hope this helps.
