I have some ideas for geeklists and instead of getting people to thumb games as their votes, I thought it would be better to do it in poll form. I have seen some polls in geeklists in the past but can't see the option to do so when I try to do it myself. Can anyone help a brother out?

The green check mark button (visible when you're typing a post) creates polls.

Also see the BGG wiki pages Forum Formatting and Poll.

there is no green check mark button when I add an item in a geeklist and want to put a poll in the information section

Then I guess you still need to try the stuff mentioned on the BGG wiki page Poll.

This might help (from the "Tricks of the Geek" Geeklist).

To remove the extra click:

It's quite simple. You create the poll in a thread and once you save the poll a shortcut like this [poll = 3260] will appear in the text box. Just copy that and don't save the thread. Then paste it into the geeklist. Unfortunately the polls in geeklists are a little temperamental, since they really aren't designed for that use.

thanks all! It's funny that I've been active here for a year now and am still learning new things!
