Why the polls are hiddenI'm new to this site. However I would like to suggest a change in the manner the polls are being conducted.
In the present way its only possible for the members to select the polls and check for any interested topics. The polls as far as i have seen has very little participation.
My suggestion is why dont the site have a small poll box in the home page of the site which will keep on displaying the polls (not the options) and keep on changing the poll topics.
In this way all (visitors and members) visiting site will be able to view the polls nd participate in the polls they like.
I have been through many of the sessions of this site, but only noticed the poll part today.
I dont know if my suggestion is a practical one, but i think it would be a way to make both the polls and the site active.
