Do you dislike polls that require you to temporarily select an answer and then click on a link inside before you can know what your real answer should be?

I don't really like them but I understand. If the situation takes more than 250 characters to describe or a link is required in the question what else can you do?

I dislike these polls as well as those that are just a statement and then if I agree or disagree. I also hate polls that require me to comment. Oh, and I especially hate when someone puts as a poll some personal achievement with"YAY" as an answer

So if you're wondering who it is that dislikes your non-question poll, its probably me.

In 3.0 I will be able to post polls with a URL that can be tapped from the poll page (without voting). I'm not going to open that up to user polls quite yet though.

Worse than that is 2 answers that have the same meaning. That annoys me.

I absolutely hate them. Especially ones that ask me to watch a video because the speakers are broke on my iPhone and I can't hear audio from YouTube, iTunes, ect.

Doesn't bother me. 250 characters or less is a toughie.

"Dislike" may be a bit harsh. My first reaction is to feel a li'l discomfort, 'cuz I actually have to think. If the only way to know an answer is to make a choice, then I feel a little mentally short-circuited, but I don't dislike making the choice.

That's my biggest SOH pet peeve. But my OCD kicks in and I force myself to pick one then change accordingly.

Yes, and I wish we could choose to not participate, so a poll doesn't show as unanswered.

One subtype that I do dislike is a poll that asks my *opinion* of a song or a music video. I don't particularly enjoy a lot of contemporary music & don't really want to have to listen to it just to vote on a poll. But that could just be me...

Exactly. Last time I checked there is no other way of doing it.

It is not the poll creators fault that he/she can't the link in the question itself. Sometimes people like to actually post information, so no, I do not have a problem with it. And no way I would down vote the poll because I am too lazy.

Not really, since if my response depends on some information I don't have yet, that's the only way currently to provide such a link. I don't mind having to change my vote. Sometimes I don't have time to read a long article or watch a long video; in

those cases I really like it if there's a warning in the poll question that the material is long - then I can set it aside for later digestion.

Yes if I need to read an article or watch a video. If the comments just gives extra information and documentation, I have no issue.
