    For the reaction problems, just remove other people's permissions to add emoji to a message. People can still add to emojis already on messages.

    Hey there, i had a cool idea of adding actual voting polls to discord. I am aware that there are different ways to add voting polls such as using different Bots and by simply adding Reaction. but then stuff like this happends:

    So, i decided to make this much simpler and less complicated method:

    Before vote is casted:

    OR

    After vote is casted:

    The command could be something simple like: /poll <Text>
    OR
    It could be something like: /poll <Text> [Option 1] [Option 2]

    Users should be able to disable this feature for specific channels like:

    This took a long time to make and only Adobe Photoshop CS6 was used. I dont expect any of this stuff to be added but it was worth a shot. Thanks for taking your time and going through this post anyways, have a nice day. :)

    Would be cool with a poll system simular to the Twitter pool. :D so our discord members can vote directly from discord

    Would be cool but can already be done by using workarounds like :thumbsup: :thumbsdown: reactions or :white_check_mark: or :x:

    yeah i'd love to see polls where you could add settings like:

    seeing results after you votedor after the poll ended,
    being able to vote multiple times or once,
    making the poll disappear after a ceratin amount of time or
    being able to change your vote

    This Should Be For Nitro (Or Not) This Is Kinda Like That GUI That Pops Up When You Invite Someone, Make A GUI Showing All The Answer For That Poll That The User Posted This Could Be IP-Only, Or Vote Multiple Times. The User Can Also Edit What Answers Like Not Sure, Yes, No, Etc. Hopefully This IS A Great Idea!

    I wouldn't want to add a bot just for polls, I like to use bots for moderation or special commands, not for polls. But having this as an actual feature, where you can implement bar-graphs and such into a text field would be just straight up awesome.
