People saying there are bots or reactions kinda miss the point here I think. Having a workaround doesn't make a feature useless to add.On the bot side, it requires something external to discord developed and managed by people outside of Discord's dev team and therefore can break at any time or break tos and other things. Plus, it requires to actually go online and look for that perfect bot that'll do what you need and some people don't really want to deal with that.On the reaction side, I guess it work but I find it maybe a little less user friendly than a true poll made for it. You have to make sure people will only use the reactions you want and I can think of some case where it can be less practical to see if there are a lot of reactions around the ones used for polling.For those reasons, I think that having a dedicated polling feature would be nice and a good addition.
because many use mobile so bots are not intuitive to most mobile users
You can utilize reactions as a poll as a workaround to a formal poll.
no that is not what bots are for... discord needs to evolve to make added features not bot dependent. The appdev hours would be low for the ask of polling, but the risk of lending the feature to bots is high. discord is no longer just the gamers new TS or Vent.
Requiring a bot to do a small feature is stupid. I don't want to give a bot the ability to see everything I post in the server just for a poll, because I don't trust the owner of the bot.
Collecting that information and structuring it to be more precise, accountable and actionable would be amazing!
Thing with the "Just use reacts" point is; After a certain amount of reacts discord hides them (randomly it seems) So that's not really viable for larger servers D:
This is built in on groupme, slack and others already. I'd also like to have the ability to create calendar .csv's or contact cards while I'm asking for things
Polls seem like a really good idea, if you are a game developer, or artist, or someone who makes music, you can make a poll to see what people would like to see or hear. You can also use polls on big Discord servers where people can give responses to a poll about implementing something new for example.
This seems like a really good idea to me. +1
I love this, I hope it becomes a thing.
This would be really helpful as it would prevent users from voting on two or more things... bored of people who do that.. Looking forward into it...
Yes love this idea.
Would like to see this too, great idea! So many examples where it could be used
what? It's more than easy to just ignore the duplicate votes
Consider implementing polls for newbies plz & thx
It would be greatly appreciated!
An app native polling feature is incomparable than using bots or reactions.
Apart from the tedious bot configuration and commands the UX is much smoother and richier nativelly.
This would be very useful when planning raid times for games. All the poll bots I have found do not offer either time choices or enough options (you need 24+ options; 1 for each hour of the day plus 'anytime' and 'I cant make it') which my clan always uses in Line polls to see when 50 people can log on to kill a boss together. (Can't convince clan to move apps when they are used to these features unless they are offered as functionally here, same goes for notes/albums). Also all but one bot I found misses the ability for people to comment on polls and sometimes you need to answer with option and specifics. Could be great if it also had optional reminders to vote maybe. And yeah a role option for creating polls would be handy too.
I´d love if we could do polls. That would be so useful! I just learned skype has this feature already but skype is actually pretty... outdated :o
