    No, but apparently you do. Care to elaborate why you think this is necessary?

    Also, what exactly happens in such a "poll subforum"?

    I thought it to be necessary if someone wanted to post a new poll on a topic,then he/she would find it easier to search for if an earlier on that topic existed.

    However if u still find it unnecessary, I would suggest to add an option regarding this in the advanced search.

    We don't create a subforum unless there is an overwhelming need for it. No one has brought up the idea that there is a need of having all polls being confined to just one subforum. Furthermore, I think it is a lot less confusing in terms of categorizing to have a poll under a forum relevant to the subject matter.
