    I do all my MLP viewing from my phone and was wondering how you post a poll. Is there a button on the bar above when you go to post a thread that allows you to do so?

    When you create a new thread, after you have written what you wanted in the OP box (do not submit post yet), scroll down the page, you will see a box called "Post a Poll:. Check the box "yes" and the number of options for your poll.

    Click submit.

    Once you do that, it will take you to another page, where you can write down the poll answers to the number of options you wanted.

    Then you click submit and the poll is created.

    Usually the thread is posted before the poll is shown, but it takes a few seconds after you finally submitted it all.
    You can also decide the length of the poll, a day, week etc.

    Yeah, it is kind of hidden and not clear on how it works.


    You're welcome :)

    I guess it's to keep fools like me from making silly polls.
