This poll is now closed.
There have been incidents in which "people" (i.e. Trumpanzees) open polls to viewers who are not registered on GameFAQs and then the poll creator invites Breitbart and other far-right troll dens to flood the polls with votes that are out of touch with the consensus of the GameFAQs community.

I propose either one of the following two options:

1. No longer permitting poll creators to open their polls to people who do not have an account registered with the GameFAQs Boards.

OR

2. Requiring that all polls have an alert showing who is permitted to vote so that poll results can be better interpreted by legitimate users who view the topic.

The polls are designed to be fun additions to the boards and not to be taken as any type of scientific gauge of the site's user base. Any update like this is wholly unnecessary.
