poll - player surveys!


poll current
poll list past
poll view <number>
poll answer <number>


From time to time, in our little MUD world, the creators like to ask the playerbase for their opinions on certain things. When they want to find out information, there is a polling system of which they can make use.

If you want to see what the current poll is, then 'poll current' will show it along with any answers.

Voting in the poll requires at least two days of player age. You can provide your answer with 'poll answer'. You can answer as many times as you like, only your last answer is accepted at the closing date of the poll.

If you want to see all the previous polls, then 'poll list past' will show the list. You can access the poll and its results using 'poll view <number>', where number is the ID of that poll.

If you wish to suppress the login inform of new polls, you can do so with 'options output suppress_poll = on'.
