Hi there. I was trying to post a new thread with a poll in the Career Guidance section, but found that the "Add a Poll" option was not available.

I'm wondering if this is a bug within PF. I appreciate any feedback any of you can provide on this regard.

That's not a bug -- it's a feature!

I believe that the rationale for not allowing polls is to prevent personal information about members from being widely aired.

Thanks Mark44 for your quick response!

I find that curious, because in the General Section polls are allowed. Perhaps for Career Guidance, personal information is more sensitive?

At any rate, thanks again for the feedback!
