Create E2 Polls, Earn Rewards!

After many years of surplus, we are finally coming to the end of our backlog of submitted polls for the Current User Poll. It's time to refresh the kitty - hence, a quest for polls!

Here's how it works:

-The quest runs from now through October 1, 23:59:00 server time.
-Anyone can submit any number of polls via the Everything Poll Creator. This means YOU! I've temporarily opened up the Poll Creator to all users, including Level 0 users!
-Every poll that I deem worthy of one day running as the Current User Poll will receive a 50 GP reward.
-No cap on the number of polls you can create!
-Stupid, offensive, or inappropriate polls may be deleted. Hilarious polls will survive!
-The four best polls submitted during the quest period, according to my subjective analysis of humor, fun, and infomativity, will be awarded a Grand Prize & 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes of 500, 300, 200, and 100 GP, respectively.

That's it! Go forth and give me your finest polls!

Note: If you don't presently see the Current User Poll in your nodelets and would like to, you can add it at Nodelet Settings.
