^ Well, that is if you want to add a poll after creating a thread, though I am sure it still do the trick.
Next time you start a a new thread, just like you did with this one, scroll down, I am pretty sure you'll find an option to make a poll within. You just mark it before pressing the button "submit",. Don't worry, instead of posting, it will first take you to a page to define your question and possible answers of your poll. I hope that made sense.
By the way, have you heard of adoption in ZU? You can enrol yourself to be adopted. That way you'll have a guardian member that will help you learn the ways of the forums, they are friendly people. I highly recommend you to do it.
