Ability to create a poll for voting on topics
NOW THAT'S A GOOD IDEA
A benefit of a poll is that the voting result is secret until you make a vote. You could also have the option to limit the number of options you can select.
If you simply added the ability to create a in-chat buttons within embeds for use by bots, you could easily get a decent poll bot up and working

It is now the end of 2017. This has almost 7000 votes and still no update :(
I barely go on websites, and share my opinion on matters of any god damn kind. This idea, of having polls should be implemented into Discord. For serious topics, such as deciding when to plan an event based on the collection of players preferred days to "raid", "clan invasion" or whatever term, the game you are playing bases its co-op events on. Also, for meme-tastic questions such as:
Would you rather have a chick with big boobs and a flat ass(Steak and No Mash Potatoes)?
Would you rather have a chick with a flat chest and a fat ass(No Steak with Mash Potatoes)?
Please make this happen, for my TBC guild's Discord can be even more hysterical. Thank you and you're welcome. -Gottie :)
I am very fond of the Poll feature on Line where I can see all the subscribers to that channel on whether or not they voted on the Poll

A system where you could lock a message to only accept specific reactions would be a decent compromise. As is, reactions are pretty awful for polls due to the natural human instinct to be a troll.
Their excuse for fixing the polls suggestion was the "reactions". The issue with reactions is permissions, and a built in polling thing (kind of like Twitters) would be absolutely wonderful.
That is actually the best idea I read so far on Discord Dreamland
can easily be done with reactions, just revoke add reactions from people, and put the
I think that there should be a permission to set a certain group of reactions for your chat. This could be useful for polls, so let's say I want to make a poll, I limit the reactions to :thumbsup: and :thumbsdown:. Then, people can only use them to vote.

What if I said This can be done right now as it stands? Would you use a Service that provides instant polls from a single post?
Idea since 2015? 5000 + votes? can we please have this -- all the current polls are external and ugly. would be nice having a cool graphic bar poll in your style. Discord FTW!

I really want this! It would mean so much to me! I have a few servers and all of them really need this!

Create a poll functionality where people can create in a message a poll wich presents options in a list format.
If the poll options were too many, part of the list would be hidden. For the user to reveal the hidden items it would need to click on a icon to reveal the whole option list.
I believe it would be better to reveal the results after the vote and allow users to set a vote dead line.
There are discord servers who are dependable on services like strawpoll.me. Please make an in-built poll creation system to make it more elegant.
All the time on my servers, we're in a scenario when we need everyone to vote on something, and it gets really annoying having t6o either count all the votes or using a twitter or strawpoll...
As Death Kitten said "It's possible to informally do polling with emoji reactions" sadly this is a bit messy and unprofessional.
Use Nano, it's a useful bot that has a poll feature
