New: Polls
17 points by pg 4593 days ago | 4 comments
News now has support for polls. There is no explicit link yet on the frontpage; you have to use this url:

Here there is no karma threshold to submit a poll (on News.YC's it's temporarily 200).

It seems that you can vote for multiple items in polls. I don't know if this is a bug or a feature... it just seemed somewhat odd. (Maybe the poller should be allowed to choose whether users can vote for multiple items or not.)

It's deliberate. Later I'll add an option to make choices mutually exclusive.

This is awesome. I wanted to submit a poll earlier and didn't find anything on the web that was what I wanted, so I was going to write a small Arc web app to do it, but haven't had time.

I predict a flood of polls though :)

Poll: How many polls constitutes a flood?
