Or whatever number is decided upon. A lot of poster and users don’t post a comment in those topics and some of them tend to sink despite receiving votes/activity. ~5 votes should equal a posted comment and bump the topic.

Polls are great, but they should always be secondary to actual discussion. And topic creators can already bump their topic manually, if they want.

Basically this would just make it that topics with a poll spend WAY more time near the top of the topic list than topics without polls. Want your topic stay near the top? Make sure you put a poll in it.

If the poll question is an interesting one, people will TALK about it, rendering this feature unnecessary. Essentially, this would only help BORING topics. If a topic isn't generating any real discussion, why keep it at the top of the list?

Counter point: if it’s an uninteresting poll then no one will vote in it and the topic will sink, having the same result as any other uninteresting topic. I’m guessing there’s a good majority of lurkers on this site and their vote would at have a little more input on the content that stays active on the boards.

To your point about about putting a poll in every topic to have them stay bumped, it won’t make a difference if it’s interesting and people vote. Same thing as an interesting topic staying bumped because of conversation. If there’s some sort of abuse of the system then the mods could handle the topic case by case.
