I allow all users on my forum to create and vote in polls do hadn't noticed you couldn't restrict poll creation. Odd really as you can restrict voting in polls - so someone could create polls but then not vote in them. I agree it should be in the core, along with several other poll enhancement suggestions that have been made.

Too time consuming, the edits I mean, But thanks.
Not really, you spend more time here arguing about certain things than it would take to edit those templates. ;)

Anyway, that's your only option at the moment, the suggestion I linked you to was made back in June 2011 so you could be waiting a while for implementation in the core.

Not really. If it ever becomes a permission, just set it accordingly.
I have only had one member since August 2013, hmm, maybe 2 that have created a poll. The poll feature, thankfully, is not very user friendly and is stuffed at the bottom when crating a new thread. I will take my chances...:)

Do I really come across as argumentative, as apposed to seeking knowledge with a bit of friendly, understanding support. Or, do certain posts/ threads attract cantankerous individuals who need their daily fix...;)

Your alright @Martok! :D
