Forums: Index WoWWiki technical New polls feature update

Copied from User_talk:Fandyllic#Polls_feature_update.21.

Good evening!
We've just enabled an upgraded version of polls here :)
It's separate to the old <poll> extension (which will continue to exist for some time), and works a little differently. Since the rich text editor isn't enabled here, you can use Special:CreatePoll to create them. Polls themselves even have their own pages, and are included on pages like templates: {{Poll:Pagename}}
If you or your users have any issues or thoughts about it, please don't hesitate to let me know - user talk page, Skype, Special:Contact all work. As you're essentially getting an early preview of the feature, you can announce (or not) it to the users as you desire. (Also posting this to Raylan13).

Quick update: polls now use [[ instead of {{ when inserted on pages. This was a fix for an issue we had, and something we desired anyway (to bring them more in line with images and other media). Kirkburn  talk  contr 12:40, March 24, 2011 (UTC)

The big question:
