How do you make one of those poll thingies in a board? NOT POLL OF THE DAY!

When you press New Topic just above the box where you type the topic title there's a link to add a poll to the topic.

There are things that I'm only discovering about the boards as well, don't worry about feeling stupid! >_>

I'm very important. I have many leather-bound books and my apartment smells of rich mahogany.

And now, a new question: what's the "code" thingy for?

This thing?

I assumed it was a way to use a fixed-width font size on GFAQs. Useful if you're posting code as you can see where the indents are, or if you're trying to post some form of ASCII table: e.g.

______________________________________
|Laevant is out getting drunk tonight. |
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
______________________________________
|Luigi and Tails is also a bit tipsy. |

Doesn't look as nice without the code:
______________________________________
|Laevant is out getting drunk tonight. |
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ

This isn't true; that's preformatted text (or <pre> tags) which the admins have made clear in the past that they have no intent on adding to the boards. You're right about the fixed-width font, however.
