On Thursday, approximately 10AM UTC, we'll be performing our MediaWiki 1.34 deployment. Please expect some downtime, we apologise in advance for any inconvenience!
Special pages related to social polls will show up under the "Polls" heading on the list of special pages.
A list of all existing social polls can be found at Special:ViewPoll.
If you go to Special:RandomPoll, you will be taken to a randomly chosen social poll.
New social polls can be created through Special:CreatePoll. There can be up to 10 different answer choices; you can also add an image to the poll if you want to!
By default, every logged-in user can create a new social poll. It is possible to place additional restrictions on who can create a new poll. For example, you could require that in order to create a new poll, a user must have at least 10 edits or 3 comments. If you want to restrict who can create a new poll, please contact ShoutWiki's Customer Support Team.
Commenting on polls
If the Comments extension is active, a comment form will be shown on every poll page and users can leave comments about the poll through it.
By default, administrators have the
polladmin right, which is required to access Special:AdminPoll, the poll administration interface. Through this interface, privileged users can lock polls from new votes and delete existing polls.
Giving out points for answering poll questions
It is possible to give out points for answering poll questions. If you want to give out points for answering poll questions, please contact ShoutWiki's Customer Support Team.
Social polls can be embedded on ordinary wiki pages easy with the <pollembed> tag. The syntax is simple:
<pollembed title="Poll title here" />
The embed code can be found at the bottom of every poll page.
