Allow a thread (first post) to include a poll. Possible options:

- Unlimited items
- Single or multi select
- Show results: always, only after voting, after some preset period, only when creator allows
- Optional "other" category for write-ins

Polls would allow certain types of questions to be answered objectively rather than in a 50-page thread. Only those who had additional comments would need to reply. The poll results would be an excellent summary of the topic.

I think there are about 3 other threads on this one, but I'd prefer to see them not associated with a thread--just standing on their own. Particularly, I want to see the ability to set up poll questions about a particular game and associate it in such a way that it appears on the game page.

This way, we could get things like optimal number of players, rating as a kids game, etc.

The thing is, the poll results are often something that people want to discuss. Why force a separate thread for that when they can be directly linked. You could always have a separate list of polls for a game that links to the threads themselves (although polls don't need to be for just games).
