The poll will run for 14 days and that should give enough time to see if it's viable
Good point, but if only 2 people vote yes then it would seem like a bad idea. If 15 people vote yes then it would seem like a good idea. The results of the poll will therefore serve the purpose of finding out if enough people are interested or not.So, if 20 people vote no and 15 vote yes, shouldn't it happen anyway? The no people can just read other stuff. Seems like a silly poll.
Why not creating a poll for voting whether agree or not for this idea?
