    How difficult would it be to change a 'poll' thread so that the actual 'poll' comes after the associated opening thread?

    It seems that the opening thread would be required reading before viewing the poll - the poll question itself is way too terse to provide appropriate context; I suspect there are a lot of cases where people take the poll, then read the explanation, which may well alter their answer.

    I think it's a good idea though considering the trouble that it may take to make the change I'm not sure if it would really be worth the effort. I have no idea how much effort it would take but I'm assuming it may take quite a bit.

    What exactly am I voting for?

    Is this for/against your proposition or for/against the current placement?

    Does anyone take our polls seriously enough for it to matter? I should have saved a link to the poll that showed about 30% of respondents here lie on our polls (they selected the option that stated they never vote in polls).

    70% of all statistics in forum poll threads are made up on the spot, anyway.
