To do a poll:
Go to "lounge"
Click on "start new thread"
Decide on a title for your poll.....then write an introductory post saying what you are trying to do.
BEFORE YOU HIT 'SUBMIT' scroll down and click on the box
"Yes, post a poll with this thread"
indicate how many questions you want This can be updated while you are actually setting it up.
THEN click "submit new thread"
Now you'll be given a new window with blank spaces to ask your questions in, and also you'll be given a chance to control the stop date, if any, whether its a multiple choice poll, and if you want others to see how you voted.
If you make a mistake, not to worry. Just post for a mod to help. They are the only ones who can change a poll.
Enjoy...you can do this!
