Somebody misusing the functionality (poll here) does not mean to remove the functionality altogether.
We just need to learn how to ignore things and be happy. No need to stress out for this.

I don't want to pull up examples of this but every week or so I spot a newbie who is trying to get an answer to their question in the Bitcoin Technical Support section and they add a useless poll in the hope of adding something extra to their thread so people will spot it.
Oh! Those newbies again Roll Eyes. I really wonder why they can't understand that they should not open a thread or post in a board that they're not familiar with. Are they a total dumbass or just hard headed? Probably both.
Say the topics subject is "Have I lost my bitcoin?"

The poll would then read:
Question: "Have I lost my bitcoin?"(same as the subject)
The answers are then either:
• Yes they're gone
• No they're not
or
• Have I
• Lost my Bitcoin.

What a nonsense poll, so disappointing. That should be reported to the mods (I'm sure you did already).

Honestly, I'm not a harsh person when it comes in dealing with newbies. Every time I see lapses on their post, I just criticize them in a nice manner, gently tell them what's wrong and give them some tips also. I do this because for me being a newbie is an understandable case and besides, there's always a room for improvemnet. But since the newbie infestation (pertaining to the guilty ones only) becomes worse which is really getting into my nerve, I guess should stop being nice now.
I think if you start to get really annoyed by these sorts of little things then this forum is just going to drive you insane  Cheesy.
Indeed, I am a living proof since I really can't help to feel annoyed. From now on, if I see posts like on OP's example (especially in our local board), I will not hesitate now to click the "Report to moderator" button. No more talks at all.

No, they shoulnd't open threads if they don't know how to live without making something off topic and irrelevant to their threads Smiley... Guessing what you put at least starts off a sarcasm.

Nah, they won't do anything about it normally af far as I can tell although maybe I should now it gives you a breakdown and see if it does get accepted.

Nah a lot of newbies actually know what they're doing here (the ones who aren't here to get one question answered and not come back or the ones that are here just to earn).
I lingered here for two months before making an account in 2015, I think three are a lot of newbies that skip the lingering step. It still took me a while to pick up "The Way of the Forum" and I'm still not sure I have it all down.

Indeed, I am a living proof since I really can't help to feel annoyed. From now on, if I see posts like on OP's example (especially in our local board), I will not hesitate now to click the "Report to moderator" button. No more talks at all.

Good! Smiley

When is it ever eseful in technical support though?

I think they accidentally created poll, question should have been - "I am newbie, help me to go away".

We have to help these people to find their answers, don't just bash them:

See? It is very easy. You just have to tick one.
I really love these polls, especially when they have the same options and "multi-ticking", I usually tick all the same answers.

It's just filling up the database with useless entries too though... Sad

You need to vote on that one... the closing date is fast approaching Grin!

South Korea sometimes have interesting coins too (the russion ones look usually like copyright infringements, viruses or just a coin marketed that doesn't actually exist)...

I don't see how it's possible to stop poll and reserve it for only certain parts of the forum.
Opinions count in every area and it can equally be misused.
