    Seeing Discord has become a community tool, I would like Discord to integrate the ability to create:

    POLLS
    - Appears at the side, before the server's members for visibility.
    - Enable/Disable Allow Public Voting choice
    - Enable/Disable multiple choice
    - Enable/Disable to allow revotes
    - Enable/Disable time limit for poll
    - Enable/Disable restriction for a certain role.
    - Type of Graph

    GIVEAWAYS
    - Title (Appears at the side before server's members.
    - Certain time to run that counts participation.
    - Enable/Disable to Require a role to enter
    - Enable/Disable to automatically enter a role
    - Claim Time limit announcement.
    - Ignore list (for those who abuse it)
    - Require a verified email account.

    Both should be shown on a panel for Past events.

    I would love to see polls added inside Discord. My clan started using Curse Voice servers specifically because they have poll features now added in.

    I also would love to see an integrated poll system as well as a giveaway system.

    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)

  • Polarthief commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    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.
