Ability to create a poll for voting on topics
+1 on the poll idea
has to be better than strawpoll
which is what i see a lot of people using.
In the latest Discord update, Twitter posts were integrated better when linked. However, when I tested it out, I used a Twitter Poll post, and the poll actually did not show up. Just something to check out!

Look at Curse, they have a poll system
HOW IS THIS STILL NOT A THING DISCORD?!
Would be very useful for organizing the team. Like when we need to sync attack and I want to know who's gonna have a 21k army, or 22k army, etc.
For me, the ideal scenario could be made "simpler", something like:
/poll Who wants to go out for lunch? :thumbsup: :thumbsdown:
A message "Who wants to go out for lunch?" appears on chat, with :thumbsup: and :thumbsdown: automatically set as reactions (both with 0). The "Add reaction" option would be disabled, and a user could only vote on one of those reactions, disabling the others (or just acting like a radio button). A reaction-like button could also appear for the creator so that he could toggle the poll as finished, disabling all reactions.
But everyone knows nothing is simple. :)
I personally like to use reactions for this.
Discord servers should have poll options.
Where the owner (or whoever is staff) can set up a simple and easy poll for the server, enter the answers, etc.
You can also set a specific time for the poll.
Such as 5 minutes, 10, etc.
The poll wouldn't be normal polls, where you check mark your choice and hit "Submit"
It will be a different type of interface.
All options will have "up" and "down" symbols, Up for yes, down for no. (Kind of like Reddit)
The arrows can be the arrow emojis (⬆ and ⬇)
To give it a sort-of unique feel.
So there's my idea. :)
Reactions do an okay job of this, but for some polls, you'd want to have additional features, such as:
- Option to limiting users to one vote option only
- Option to limit amount of time that the poll is open.
- Keep it in a separate panel, so it doesn't clutter up chat
- Optional -in specified channel- announcement to conclude results of chat at close.
Yes, please add giveaway feature, so people will leave shitty Curse client o_o
I would rather want this in vanilla on discord then a bot poll channel would be nice because commands get annoying when there is too many commands.
PunchFox you don't have to use it but strawpoll is very simple program.
Make interactive voting in the chat. For a quick vote. It should look just like the 3 buttons, red, yellow, green. And there should be a number indicating the number of votes and percentage.
How will it work? For example administrator asks the question, and said that the red button YES, NO yellow and green I DO NOT KNOW. In this case it is not necessary to fill out a form, and it will know the opinion of the audience.
I think bots or reactions fill this feature pretty well already
Not as quite a needed feature as would be the sub channels (which are coming to discord!!!!!) and calendar module. There are lots of bots that have polls which is why I said its not a needed feature. Just type in carbon discord stats in google. Should be the first link you see. Then click discord on the sidebar on the left and then search through the bots. It's as easy as just clicking add to server and knowing the command to use.
Just get a bot, don't bog down Discord with bloat and crapola that not everyone will use.
