You can add polls into a page easily with the <poll> tag. The polling feature is an extension that is enabled by default on all ShoutWiki hosted wikis but it can be turned off on request.
The poll syntax is simple:
<poll> Poll question goes here Answer #1 Answer #2 ... Answer n </poll>
Closing a poll
It's not possible to close a poll, so you need to either let it be on the page, remove it totally or alter the poll question or options. Users can also alter their own vote at any chosen time. Because of this, it's not recommended to use this for anything serious such as administrator elections.
Votes are registered under the user's IP address if the user is an anonymous one or under his/her username if the user is a logged-in one.
