Syntax

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 username, or IP address if the user is anonymous.
