How about voting?

On our forem we've seen a few members use twitter to get feedback on what they are working on.

Currently, we are also work shopping our badges to see what our community likes best as well.

The way we see the forem is every article is there as a resource for others to draw experience currently and in the future.

I can see there being a benefit of others looking at what members work shopped themselves and see what worked, and what didn't.

Thoughts?

I believes polls exist in some beta form

Beta polls feature (admin use only for now) #3176

What type of PR is this? (check all applicable)

  • [ ] Refactor
  • [x] Feature
  • [ ] Bug Fix
  • [ ] Documentation Update

Description

This PR includes some basic functionality for including polls in tweets. It limits so that only admins can include polls because I think there are more complexities around polls we want to nail down, along the lines of:

  • An article with a poll probably shouldn't allow edits because that could compromise the poll.
  • A poll should only be able to be embedded in a single article as to keep context consistent.
  • This means more "awareness" of the context from the liquid tag perspective.
  • A poll should be definable through some fairly straightforward UI which begs questions of when a poll gets "saved".

So for now I made it so that it's more of a conceptual feature for now that we can use internally but it will be fun to show off until we answer the rest of the questions.
