    Looks like it is human error this time. It happens. Do we need an actual poll submission function?

    That might be extra neato.

    But development resources are limited.

    Would you need a new db table of poll submissions. And a page to view the submissions. And edit them. And delete them. And send a message to the submitter that their poll idea was accepted or rejected. And maybe a page that each user can see their submitted poll ideas (similar to stories) and see which were accepted / rejected.

    The idea of submitting poll ideas as a story was suggested to me by someone as a comment some weeks back. So I did it. Twice. A long "story" that was really a series of poll ideas that editors could pick from and accept or reject as they saw fit. It was suggested that the editors might be able to distinguish between an actual story and a list of poll suggestions -- and it turns out to be true!
