    Something I'd like to see would be the ability to make text chats where anyone can type, but only certain people can read the messages typed there. This could be used to take poles, take in feedback, or allow people to request something for Admins to review.

    Limit Reactions selections for polls so users can only use a designated selection of emojis.

    i would like to see a poll option in discord as well, with discord everyone can see it for weeks although maybe the poll can have it's own poll channel or something
    -Enable/Disable everyone can add choices
    -Enable/Disable certain role to add choices
    that way if some people have a favorite game there going to play you can make a choice

    if it could use the twitch game database then you could just use the list a click for games, but food will have to type and other stuff like it

    the downside i see with the other types of polls
    Straw poll is nice for a quick poll but if your doing a longer poll links usually get hidden in discord depending on how heavy the channel is as well with twitch

    channel bot polls are really only used when the stream is live in the channel not when it's offline so no one really goes to channel during offline

    But it would be nice to see this in the vanilla client

    it would be nice if you could send a voting message to everyone in a role. They could select between set options and a tally would be shown in the specified channel

    Its always good when community has a possibility to vote for anything...future games, events, mvp of a game and so on

    This should easily be done, Curse has what looks to be a branded Discord service and it has this and channel folder creations...both are needed.

    This would all be implementable if there were a bot API that allowed to add /slash commands and clickable buttons in messages that allow you to send commands for a bot.

    Cool idea, although I think It's fancy-ing channel topics. But still quite useful.
    On my servers I generally run some discussions or polls.

    Well, we do have, Discord bots, if you’re streaming there are also Beam & Twitch bots that can do this. Beam already has built-in polls, too.

    This is a cool idea but I don’t think it should be a priority just yet.

    (Permission is off by default)
    it will appear next to the image icon, you can click it then select things to be voted on along with how long it lasts, how many people can vote, what rank they need to vote, and what verification level they need to vote.

    For simplicity i made a basic template on what the icon would look like
    (also a suggestion for the forum, allow image attachments :P)

    P.S. i'm sorry if i chose the wrong section but i assume since this is a permission based request that i should put it there because that's more helpful than simply putting other.

    Bots already handle this along with other social functions like, voting, leveling, 8ball, etc.

    Granted having all of the bot functions PART of Discord would be great but simple and lite bots handle this nicely.
