Instructions For Adding A Poll

Recommended Posts

When starting a prediction thread for a game, please take the time to add a poll to your thread to give the members here on BGP an opportunity to vote for the team they think will win.




For those of you who may not have used the "Create A Poll" function frequently, here are some quick instructions for you to reference:


1) The first step takes place when you’re initially creating your thread. Scroll down to the “Additional Options” box, and click in the box next to the “Post A Poll” item. It will ask you for a number of poll options – the number of multiple-choice answers you want between 1 and 20. You have to choose a number, but will be given the option to change your choice once you’ve submitted your thread and continued on to creating your poll.


2) Click the “Submit New Thread” button. This will create your thread, and then take you automatically to a new page to create your poll.


3) Enter the question for your poll in the “Poll Question” box. You can update the number of poll options (answers) if need be, and then enter each answer in the appropriate option box below. You also will have to select whether or not you want your poll to close after a specified number of days. If you want the poll to stay open permanently, type in a ‘0’ in that field.


4) Under “Additional Options”, you also will have the option to determine whether poll participants will be able to make multiple choices, or if the poll participants’ names will be public once they select their answers. Please, everyone, MAKE POLLS PUBLIC.


5) Click “Submit New Poll”, and the poll will be automatically added to the top of the thread you created with it.

Just to emphasize one point from the above post...


When you post a poll for a game thread, PLEASE MAKE IT PUBLIC.

Every. Single. Time.

It adds so much more to the discussion when you know who is voting where. :thumb: :banana:
