    In case you hadn't noticed, I've changed the behaviour of polls.

    Originally, any vote in a poll (even if there was no actual reply posted in the poll thread), would cause the poll thread to move to the top of the recently updated threads list. This had the benefit of keeping the poll visible and attracting more people to vote ... but the downside was that it became annoying to have something marked as new when all there really was - was a new vote.

    Now that I'm only allowing one poll at a time to be active - and that will be visible on the front page of the site - I figured we could turn this functionality off.

    So now, when a poll thread jumps to the top of the recently updated threads list - it really has been updated - there's a new post !

    Don't forget that you can post your own poll ideas in the "Poll Submission" forum - go to the polls forum and you'll see the link to the poll submission forum. I'll add them to the queue to show up in the poll box on the home page.
