New forum - The Polling Booth

Recommended Posts

As you may or may not have noticed, we now have a new main forum called The Polling Booth - This will now be the place where you can create polls to find out what other members think about anything (guitar related or otherwise).

All members can create polls and vote on polls created by other members.

How to create a new poll

When you post a new thread, you have the option to also create a poll.

This function allows you to ask a question and specify a number of possible responses. Other members will then be able to vote for the response they wish, and the results of the voting will be displayed in the thread.

An example poll might be:

What's your favorite type of music?




Hip Hop


I love them all!

To create a poll when you post a new thread, go down to where you see Additional Options and simply click the "Yes! post a poll" checkbox and then set the number of responses you would like to include.

When you click the Submit New Thread button, you will be taken to the poll creation page, where you can specify the question and the list of responses you want to include.

You may also want to specify a time limit for the poll, so that (for example) it only stays open for voting for a week... you may also give members the ability to select more than one answer by allowing multiple choice.

Voting in and viewing a poll

Voting on a poll is easy, simply select which option you want to vote for, and click the "Vote!" button. You may view the current results for a poll before you vote by clicking the 'View Results' link.

As usual, Any questions or problems, just ask me in the troubleshooting forum
