I'm missing a possibility to add polls in guild messages as an guild leader.
 
Reason
The old guild internal forum had a possibility for polls to create which I now miss.
Details
Add a possibility (at least for a guild leader) to create/attach polls to a message in the message system. It should be possible to add different answer possibilities to the poll.
Balance
The game balance will not be changed by this.
Abuse Prevention
Players cannot cheat with this feature.
Summary
Polls are missing after removing the guild internal forums from the game.
Have you looked to see if this has already been suggested?
Yes, could not find such a proposal.

as complex as in this forum ?

with options
- anonymous / can see what players voted for
- can change vote
- end date of vote
- multiple choices

or just simply
anonymous / no change / endless
 
One vote from each player added at the thread message where the poll is attached.
Proposal request for "different answer possibilities", so multiple choices, not just a Yes/No poll.

I would like the option for change vote, not critical (for me) to have end date of vote, that can be managed manually.

We had a poll system in the guild internal forums, which were removed some week ago. I want something like this be available again, because from time to time it would be helpful to do a poll in the guild.
Completely understood, I agree, but how simple or complex?
  • Just a Poll question or statement with:
    • Yes/No alternatives to vote?
    • More than two (2) alternatives to vote? Like up to 5?
  • Number of votes per player?
    • Only one vote per player included in the thread where the poll is set?
    • Multiple votes by same player (if more than two alternatives)?
  • Can a player change his/her vote?
  • How the Poll ends?
    • Poll creator can set a period of time to accept votes? Poll ends automatically when time runs up.
    • No programmed end time, poll creator states the date/time for last valid votes will be in the text of the poll.
  • Votes results public or secret?
    • Can players see current votes results?
    • Or results are secret until poll period ends?

There should be multiple alternatives.

One vote per player should be enough.
  • Can a player change his/her vote?
Nice to have but not needed.
  • How the Poll ends?
    • Poll creator can set a period of time to accept votes? Poll ends automatically when time runs up.
    • No programmed end time, poll creator states the date/time for last valid votes will be in the text of the poll.
The is no need for an end date, this can be done individually by the poll creator.
  • Votes results public or secret?
    • Can players see current votes results?
    • Or results are secret until poll period ends?
Private votes/public results
