I need some ideas for new polls on the front page. This is the current one - http://webpolls01.xs...C50BE7&xsppwp=2 Normally, I wait until the votes have reached about 2000+ but I might start changing them more often now, perhaps when they reach 1000 votes. Nothing silly, please - I need relevant and plausible stuff that will appeal to a wide range of people and generate the most possible votes. Thanks!

Btw, if you want I can hook it up so that you can embed a poll from the forum on the main page. You could do away with the web polls thing if you wanted to.

Poll idea:
What do you think the battery life on a mobile phone will be like 10 years from now?
- The same as it is now, it'll just be as powerful as today's desktop systems
- Much better. 2 weeks without recharging and more powerful to boot
- Better. 2 weeks without recharging, but present day computation power.
- Worse, it'll last a day if we keep it on an induction pad half the time.
- Other, please specify [in this forum topic]
This amount of awesome cannot be from concentrate.

That would be awesome - I'd love to know how that's done! :yes:

I'll work it out with Caiman. It might or might not need a bit of special PHP sauce, but shouldn't be difficult either way. It might very well be as simple as setting a poll to allow anon votes and pointing to it with an iframe on the main site (with an extra parameter to show just the poll, not the topic embedding it on the forum). Either way this is something that's easy enough for me to figure out with Caiman and get you the HowTo.

I wrote the CMS for STOnet, back in the day. It'll be a piece of cake. ;)
