So I was looking at TheLostSwede's latest "This Week In Gaming" news article, and the discussion led me to realize that 45 polls have been posted on the front page - in that series alone. I have not seen a single one of those polls.

Now, I live over on the "Forums" page, not the "Home" page. I get the same news articles pop up on the forum page, so it never seemed to make a difference. However, any quick poll that is posted (that is visible on the home page) is not visible on the forum page.

Is there any way to make this visible, or should I just look back at the home page more often?

Hi,
Yeah every poll thread says the polls in question are on the Front page
Only issue is top menu don't say Front page they say Home lol

Think a lot of these polls need a None of the above option as well.

The main site is really what this kind of content is designed for. The forum usually hosts the related discussion.

While the main frontpage poll ("DLSS" right now) is visible in the forums, the polls attached to news posts are not visible from the forums (using a different database)

A reasonable but unfortunate explanation...
