    a few questions about polls:

    1. can i make a poll where the voting is limited to specific posters only?
    2. can it be set up so votes can be edited by voters?
    3. can the poll itself be edited (in number of options and options)?

    thanks.
    i tried to change anything in the attached poll here, but i don't see how.
    any suggestions?

    also, can it be switched from single to multiple options?

    Do you have the edit poll option available to you?

    Changing from single to multiple options can only be done when you're creating it, before saving it - even for moderators.

    In that case, be sure you set up your poll the way you want it before saving it. Otherwise, you need to report the post to us for editing it if you make a mistake, or to close the thread altogether in order to start a new one with the correct settings.

    ok, thanks.
    can i ask you a favor? can you please change the test poll attached here to a "multiple option setting"? i just want to check a thing without having to make another test thread.
    thanks

    No, that has to be done when you make it. We can't change it.

    You have to decide on multiple choice when you first start the thread and it cannot be changed once saved.
