    I just spotted there's a Thread Tool to add a Poll

    EDIT. I've done it. Sorry, may not be the best question wordings ever written....

    Looks only to be available for OPs.

    I love it the new site.

    I think that's right Vince. You only get the Thread Tools button if you create a new Thread yourself. You have to make Post#1 first then it offers you a Thread Tools drop down menu. 'Add a poll' is the only thing on the Thread Tools drop down menu

    And if you posted the Poll there's a separate Edit facility, although I don't know how long it lasts. I've just edited it so that the identities of those voting aren't publicly displayed.

    @TESRosaline- happened again when trying to reply to this thread. Asked me to login in and then directed me back to the Home page. (Fortunately I'd made a mental note of the title, so didn't take much scrolling to find the thread! )
    And now I don't appear to be able to access the poll to input my answers. I'll try again.

    Ah! Spotted what I did. I read the replies and was then far down the page and just hit reply, not realising I had to go back to the top of the page (which wasn't originally working before I logged in of course) and spotted the Cast your vote box. (Is there an 'embarrassed face icon?o_OThis one?)
    @TESRosaline (intermittent automatic names coming up) By the by good to see we have automatic 'Formatting' without having to 'choose the option' as on the existing site. (Thumbs up icon needed here!)

    But I still want Opinion back.

    The question is whether TES wants you back post-ban.

    I'm just doing what Rosaline asked and encouraging more people to post here and get used to all the new features.

    From what I've read you had your chance to help TES with the new features and you blew it. Unless TES invites banned posters back then you shouldn't be here.

    Don't fret, Vince. None of us are really here this weekend - if my wittering offends you it'll all be gone when this place goes live.

    Your posts do not offend me but a ban is a ban. If an exception is made for you then the floodgates are opened.

    FYI, there's a report button at the bottom of each post so you don't have to tag Rosaline.

    I don't want to be controversial.
    I just wanted a party.

    It's called gatecrashing.

    As I said, if an exception is made for you then the floodgates are opened to all the banned.

    If Opinion was included I might have voted in favour of the new forum.

    So far..... I don't like the "flash banner" thing which moves...... it is distracting. Otherwise am still feeling my way around things ......

    And..... I miss Tidal and the others !
