try now -- only full members of the site can post polls and you weren't previously recognized as a full member. you are now.

I'm sure it used to be possible to choose an icon for the thread when it is posted but I can't see it any more ???

I think it must have been disabled or lost along the way because I have the same version of SMF installed and you can choose a thread icon with the first post and also go back and edit it with the usual modify button.

we disabled setting post icons -- this way there is less visual clutter.
but i do agree that maybe poll posts should have a dif icon.

No you can post a new poll to start a thread.

This is the top of the Living room forum - notice the "New Poll" button
