Do we still need "The Polling Place" forum, or can we create polls in any forum subject to the same restrictions (i.e. you have to be a registered user)? Also, can polls have a limited time life?

On another forum (DVD Talk), I have been running a weekly poll where they have six days to vote who they think will eliminated on The Amazing Race. The polls last six days. I will be doing the same thing for The Mole II: The Next Betrayal, which will run in it's entirety this summer.

Only admins can start polls in any forum and yes, we can place a time limit on them.
