Topics that have a limited number of answers get polled because there isn't much to discuss, so the topic usually just consists of people posting their answer and nothing else. The topic gets closed after a poll is made because there's no point to having 2 topics about the same thing.

Topics with a limited range of answers--ten or less, but usually "yes"/"no" questions--are often made into polls to avoid spammy posts where people just type out a quick answer with little thought. Since posts in the Voting Booth (the only forum where [Premier] members can post polls) don't add to one's post count, those short answers aren't as problematic and people can't use topics with simple answers to inflate their post counts. That's not to say people shouldn't think through their posts in the Voting Booth, but it happens.If you want to avoid your topics being polled, you should make them with open-ended questions or on topics with more discussion value. If people can't respond to a topic with just a "yes" or a "no," or if a good discussion is going, the topic won't be made into a poll. Also, if you want to ask a question that would work as a poll, you can PM a Premier Member to ask for once.edit: hm
