OMG I thought it was just me!! I couldn’t figure out how to add a poll and ended up not posting a new thread because of it!

I miss them too. If you would like them to vote back please vote on an idea in the idea section or make a new post about it. Voting on an existing idea is the best way though.

Sometimes a poll was the only way of giving an honest opinion without spending 20 minutes thinking of how to word something that no one would take offense to.

Agreed! I also really miss getting a notification if someone replied to one of my threads… AND I miss the formatting where the OP posts are greyed/in a box to differentiate them from everyone else’s

What I’m confused about is that the Ideas site says that polls are live!

I do miss them. They were so helpful to brides who were asking for help deciding which dress, ring, hairstyle, etc. that they should get. The bride could clearly see what people preferred, and then she could go to the comments for the reasons behind those choices. Not having a poll feature makes that process less efficient and clear  

I don’t understand why they would get rid of such a feature. It was just so useful.

I miss them big time!! I loved being able to answer questions that bees asked honestly, without fear of judgement, and for other bees to do the same for me.

Penguin said that polls should be live, but obviously no one can see them or make them or whever so I think they must have stuff to fix on their end. Polls are supposed to be coming back though, thankfully. The site would really be going backwards if they got rid of them!

Makemeamrs:  Are you not getting emails when people reply to you? I’ve been getting them like crazy since the site updated!

Makemeamrs:  Oh, yes, I noticed that the OP posts aren’t highlighted anymore. That was so helpful, and so pleasing to the eye. Reading the threads was much easier; my eye could flow down the page, rarely stopping to check who wrote what. Everything was pretty clearly defined 

Why would anyone want to get rid of that? I don’t get it.

CarolinaCola:  no! I’m not getting anything… I literally have to search back and try to remember what posts I commented on since there is no easier way to find them like there used to be! 

Overall I am really disappointed with this new layout…. They say we asked for these changes and would love them…. I have yet to read a post where someone likes the new layout! 

Why fix something that isn’t broken!?
