Should it be possible to ad extra options to a poll through editting. When I hit edit I can change the text of the message but not the poll options. Is that right? I'm sure I've seen other add extra poll options in the past.

As a test I added a poll to this thread

If you click edit on your first post and look underneath the text of the post you should be able to add extra options

If you can't we will need to ask the more techy people why

Think I've worked out what's going on. It appears that after someone has voted on the poll it's no longer possible to edit the poll options.

I can still edit this one but it might be special mod powers that allow that

If you want an additional options added just let us know

Yes, the ability to edit a poll vanishes for non-mods once someone has voted in the poll or posted to the thread.

So it's our fault for voting?
Sheesh, this place gets more like Parliament every day
