thoughts? should we display the current voting share? or keep it a surprise till the poll has ended? Reddo 00:41, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

I think that you need to show the day when the results will be made public (if we want to keep them hidden like they are now). — Eugene [talk] 03:07, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
I like it. I think that it should be made into a template. I was also wondering if you can remove the number one beside it, because I am assuming that we're only going to have one poll at a time. God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 03:16, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
we could make it so polls results are always displayed on the first of the month, and i hid the number with some css Reddo 03:32, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
I'm thinking that this should replace the "random quote" section on the main page. I feel that it's a feature that has gotten old, and ready for an update. Any disagreements? God Bless ~ Nate ~ Talk 04:38, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
I like the random quote generator, but I'm fine with replacing it with the poll. Are we allowed to put in suggestions for future polls? Is it going to be monthly? Rachel Maxwell 05:36, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
yeah, go ahead and suggest new polls, only thing is we should stay away from anything that could be in the end of season awards, and it is monthly Reddo 05:40, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
I like the random quote generator, too. In fact, I often reload the Main Page to see what will be displayed. But if we want to replace it with the current poll, I'm okay with that, too. I think that we should create a page that will show the random quote, though. That way the feature is just moved and not totally gone. — Eugene [talk] 05:54, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

If we must get rid of the random quote generator, could you at least make a preference option to show it if you want it there? AIOCREFan 21:03, 3 September 2010 (UTC)

we could make it a preference under the gadgets tab in the preferences but then only logged in users would be able to change it for themselves Reddo 21:24, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
That would be awesome! How would you do that? I'm very interested in the code and how it all works. Oh, and the text under "Past Polls" needs to be changed since we've revealed the first poll's results. — Eugene [talk] 21:31, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
I'm guessing that we would create a custom div tag in MediaWiki:Common.js and then create a js gadget that fill the tag if you turned it on, or display nothing otherwise. Erwin Springer [talk] 21:36, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
Hm, I don't think you can dispay wikitext with js. Erwin Springer [talk] 21:50, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
i just did it with some simply css, but it appears that when you use the same poll on a different page it counts it as a different poll in the db, meaning the votes won't get added together, so it might now work well Reddo 22:42, 3 September 2010 (UTC)
Maybe you can try putting the <noinclude></noinclude> tags around the stuff you don't want to add to the Main Page on the Polls page, then use the entire Poll page as a template on the Main Page. I don't know if that will work or not, but it's probably worth a shot. — Eugene [talk] 01:12, 4 September 2010 (UTC)
I like the random quote! I guess if we do get rid of it, we should put it on some seperate page. Unknown 22:05, 31 December 2010 (UTC)

"Did you/will you sign up for the Odyssey Adventure Club?" - Sunnys <BIBLE|-- ~Talk~

"Did you audition for Get in the Show! 2017?" Poll

What about an entry "You are too old to enter. :(" Because none of the listed choices fit for me. Aiow 20:42, 12 July 2017 (MDT)

Ya, good idea. Scientific Guy (talk / AIOC Episode Timeline) 17:47, 13 July 2017 (MDT)

More Poll Ideas

Complements of your email to Odysseynerds, Luke and I have been brainstorming a little. What is your favorite Adventures in Odyssey video, that could be a poll. You could even like, put two of the most popular videos and just choose between those. Luke's idea was to do favorite Odyssey kid, Jimmy, Matthew, Mandy, Emily, or Jared. Another one I thought of was what if you did a poll where we choose between the most likely theory of Alex and Cal's about who Arem is? The options could be Mare, Scarem, Jarem, Ared, and Butterfly. We're brainstorming here. You really asked for it this time. FlYiNg FiSh-YoShI SaN (talk) 21:31, 3 September 2017 (MDT)

My Poll Ideas

I think we should make poll that asks "Should Tim David Michael be brought back in a future episode?". Answer; Yes or No. Any thoughts on this idea?
