Using Polls For Trivia

A thought just popped in to my head out of nowhere. The thought was whether or not we could use the polls here as a way of maybe doing some kind of 'trivia' question. For example, one could select a topic (say music) and pose a question about it and then give a few choices and the viewers get to 'vote' for which one of the choices they think is the correct answer to the question posed. This idea makes sense in my head, I'm just not sure I can get across just what I am meaning to be honest but I'm sure some of you may well understand it.

The thing is though I don't even know if it is allowed. I don't know if we can utilise the poll system here in such a way. I reckon it might be a good thing to do and it could help with interaction but I just don't know if it is allowed or not. I suppose what I will do is send a query in to support to ask them for a definite answer. Either way it's cool, it's all good. It is just an idea that popped in to my head today.

That could be a fun thing to do with it.

could be a fun experiment to try though with multiple choice questions the answers are easy to google

I think sending a query to Support is a great idea. I've not seen anything in the Terms of Use or FAQ to forbid this, but best to get a direct answer from administration.

Polls helped me a lot in additional topics to post. That can be a good suggestion and we have to know whether its allowed or not.
