    Nice to have a poll system, so you can quickly create and share integrated polls.

    Nothing wrong with adding a new potential /<function> in a chat. I'm down for this - a /poll option would actually be fun! Albeit, it might be hard to keep it visible, if it's in-line with the rest of the app text...

    Polls are a good idea.

    Esp for actual real communities that span the globe and its timezones, and not just spam servers that are total free for alls.

    The ability to be able to run giveaways from within the blient itself. Users on the streamers server can enter the giveaway via a notification drop down at the top of the Chat section. The Streamer has a button that will choose a random person from those that entered. They may also add a sub bonus to those who are subs to their channel. I know there are bots that can do this now, but would love to see a built in version of this. Also the Ability to add polls within the chat section would also be a nice feature for streamer servers.

    It's unnecessary bloat, considering Twitter has this and Strawpoll has this as well.

    I was about to make this very same suggestion, but figured I'd better do a search first. Glad I did! Voted up!

    A poll would be great but please make it role-based. Don't want to have spammers for polls (hello G+ communities).

    plus the ability to 'pin' it to the top of a channel (so we could create 'event' channel at low cost)

    I'd love the ability to add a poll to a post (similar to adding a picture/video link). My guild uses Discord for things like raiding in WoW and plenty of other games. I've set up a chat channel specifically for announcements/news (like what we're raiding tonight), and having a poll in there asking what people would like to do for the night would be really cool.

    Just wanted to add a concept of what polls should look like IMO. Right now it's missing how the main section of what polls would look like, so if someone else has ideas and wants to reply that'd be great. I definitely plan to create a plugin from their API immediately if the developers decide they don't want to add this.

    Even tho 701+ people agreed to this, the devs will probably ignore it anyway...
    Just like 98% of all the other ideas on here..

    I honestly can't figure out why they didn't add a downvote option already.

    Simply add a "X topics hidden due to many downvotes" and an option to display them. Seems to be a better choice than only having a "Flag idea as inappropriate..." option. Many ideas aren't inappropriate, but are pointless.
