New Story feature - polls

New Story feature - polls was created by fats
Hi all,

Starting on the 7th December we will be implementing a new feature for the library, in story polls.  This new feature will allow you to get an idea of what the readers are looking from you the writer.

Take for example you have written several chapters of a story and you are unsure how you want to progress with it, you can add a multi-option poll at the end of the story for readers to vote on what they think you should do. another example would be if you had multiple protagonists you can have a vote on who should be prioritised in the next chapter.

At this time we are not going to allow it on existing stories in the library only new stuff.

How to get a poll in your story?

You can't do it your self, it will be done by an admin when the story is published so you need to include the following information at the end of the story

Poll question and the poll options, 

You can have as many options as you want but we are going to at this time limit the number of polls to one per story, if it takes off we might allow multiple polls per story but for now one will have to do.

This is still a work in progress so expect some bugs, again if it takes off then we will look at better polling software which might incur a cost to the site but if it's liked by members then it's something that we can look at.

This sounds excellent. More interaction from the readers with the author, which is what the author wants.
