Hey there everyone! We'd like to get your feedback about a longstanding feature of BZPower - polls! We used to have an entire forum dedicated to them, but these days they can go just about anywhere.

Did you know we had polls on BZPower? Do you wish you could make polls? Are you considering buying a Premier Membership just so you can make polls? We want to know your thoughts!

Your input is always appreciated and will go to improving BZPower.

We didn't know if you liked polls, so we put some polls in a poll so we could poll about how you pole a poll.


Currently, polling features are not my main concern and I would not be too upset if it just became a thing all people could do. Gosh what a weird unrelated thing.

1. To quote Mr. Bison, OF COURSE! B-)


2. If I had the ability to make them, I'd probably only make them every now and again. But that is only because I rarely makes topics at all. It would just depend on the question I wanted to ask.


3. I wouldn't buy Premier Membership just to make polls. I'd buy it mainly for the blog. But I wouldn't complain about getting the option to make polls though.

I think buying Premier Memberships just to make polls is a bit far, however i do plan on getting an Infinite Premier Membership for all the other perks, that is when i have a lot more pocket money than i do at the current moment.

Poll-making was far from the reason I got a premier membership (why bother, when I could just PM a Premier Member to do it for me?). And honestly it kind of annoys me when a member PMs me asking me to make a poll without clearly explaining what they want the poll and the options to be. I don't even know whether I've ever made a poll in all my years on BZP.

However, I often like voting in polls and posting my thoughts (like I'm doing right now, come to think of it). I like having the option to make polls, if there's an issue with limited options which I'd like to gauge BZPower's views on. I LOVE that polls have been integrated into the main fora of BZPower now, instead of being secluded in a separate forum where no posts, from the pithy to the Aanchir-length, counted toward your post count (which may have been to stop short and self-explanatory posts from counting, but I suspect wound up stifling deep and meaningful discussions in poll topics even more).

this topic reminds me that I once wished I hadn't bought lifetime premier so I could buy the six-month thing to jack my proto bar up to OBZPC status but I never got that far?? Wind also once gave me +6000 proto so I guess it all evens out

I have the ability to make polls and have literally never once made one. I like the blogs.

I like polls. I wish I had all the time in the world so I could spam the forum with them. Unfortunately if I turned all of my polling ideas into new topics I would be ostracized severely because there is not enough activity on yonder forum to merit that many polls. 


This topic is torturing me with them. I need to go somewhere else.

Polls are a cool feature, I just never manage to come up with decent idea for them, thus hardly make any. :/

I think I made one poll once, many year ago, but what the poll was about, I don't remember. And I think I may have made it because someone asked me to, not because I wanted to.


All I know is that polls are probably my least favorite and least used PM perk. I've never really enjoyed or used them much.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt

I like polls, but really have no interest in making them. It does seem like it should be open to all members, as it doesn't seem like a huge incentive to buy Premier anyway.

Yeah, I got premier membership mostly to support the site and the blogs were pretty much the biggest perk I was interested in. 


I can't say I considered the polls as a perk at all when I made my decision, though.


I wouldn't mind if it was something any member had access to.

I like polls for certain things. Generally, though, I prefer a good, hearty discussion to an anonymous poll. I rarely make polls of my own, and didn't buy my premier membership for the ability to make polls.

The polls are great thing for the voting in contest and other things plus it good that the ability to poll is for premier membership. I haven't yet made a poll but it would be rarely and like Aanchir, I didn't got premier membership for making polls.

I've never made one, but they sure can be useful for voting and gauging actual numbers of individuals interested in something.

Ah, polls. I don't really care much for them but for RPG Contest voting.


I'd still probably make one if I got Premier Membership.
