Default New Poll

I have noticed that when I go to forums that I do not moderate, there is no "New Post" button. During the short period that I had administrator privilege, I saw the button in all forums. From this I have concluded that there is a bug somewhere. I think is safe to assume that the administrators are not aware of this problem because they see the button in all forums. It is also safe to assume that members who are not administrators or moderators don't see this button in any forum. I started getting suspicious when I noticed that JanetC had started a text based poll rather than using the normal polling option.

Would it have some thing to do with these settings bottom right? I saw the poll she tried to start and was confused with it too, then I noticed it was not [ ] like Marc's [poll] was?

The poll that JanetC submitted is not the issue. She simply asked for comments on which of her kits to build first. My thought was that she was not able create an actual poll.

If I got to the Kit Building forum, I get a header that include the "New Poll" button.



If I go to the Scratch Building forum, I get a header that does not have the "New Poll" button.


I think there is the possibility that administrators have the "New Poll" button on all forums, moderators have it only in the forums that they moderate, and members do not have it at all.

The permissions needed to be set differently and should be fixed now.

I can not see the "New Poll" button in any forum topic list.

Attached is a screen capture of my "rights" for forums.

It still doesn't allow us to submit a new poll (see my screen capture).

Also, I noticed the absence of a "Quote" button... Luckily I remember the formatting codes.

<Edit> Well, most of them anyhow [&:] I originally forgot to close the quote...
