New I put together a simple 'Poll' section. You choose the poll question, and 2-10 options. There is also an optional 'Text' field, which is a textarea where you can use BB Code.

https://www.distantweb.net/polls.php

For right now, I am allowing guests to both vote and create new Polls. I'm not the biggest fan of allowing guests to submit data publicly, so this could get pulled at any moment. Consider this my first real step into allowing guests to do things other than simply read.

For future updates, I am considering a few options:

Sorting by Date, Last Vote Date, Most/Least Number of Votes, etc.
Selecting more than 1 option.
Allow voter to add their own choices
--This could be very problematic. Offensive or spam content could be added, meaning any polls with this feature would have to be heavily moderated...

That's all I can think of right now. If you have ideas for future additions, let me know!

New And it happened. Allowing guests to post ended with SPAM BOTS flooding in posting bogus polls with butttons of links attached. So, for now, no more guest posting will be allowed.

At one point I had a Captcha thing in place, but it ended up not working in certain situations, and I never did figure out why. Guess I may have to work on that again...
