    Why the polls are hidden

    I'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.

    Welcome to SpiderKerala.

    It is good to see that you have entered the website through a suggestion. Suggestions from users are always welcomed in SpiderKerala. Your suggestion was about polls. Its true that polls in SpiderKerala remains unnoticed. But actually SpiderKerala does not give much importance to poll topics because they does not fetch much traffic. But you can link your polls along with your forum threads so that users can see the poll topics along with the thread and can cast votes accordingly. I think you have already done for this thread.

    Instead of giving much importance to polls use other section of SpiderKerala wisely especially the article section because it is the heart of SpiderKerala
