I see everything ;-)

That box up the top was specificially designed to stand out for the purpose of making more people notice the "Read more about…" links. I didn't intend to use it for anything else because that would just defeat the purpose (it won't stand out if it's used all over the place).

But you obviously want the polls to appear on the home page somehow, so I'll try to find a way to do that which doesn't look too out of place. The main issue I have with the polls at the moment is that I'm using an external service… I'd rather use something that is built with Wikidot itself, so that I can integrate it directly with the website. The current polls don't let me do this :(

yeah. as long as the polls can be placed somewhere where they can be seen, i'm all happy with that.
leiger, you're the all-knowing eye. ;)

Yes, that wikidot poll was made by James Kanjo does not match any existing user name. Thanks for linking to that page though, as it told me that he was making some changes… so I'll be interested to see what it looks like when that is done. The way it was, it wasn't very useful for me to use on this site. It's more for once-off use.

I'm going to reject this because I'm not really happy with having to use a third-party poll system to get it working… if I can eventually get this working with a wikidot solution that works like a proper poll… then I'll reconsider adding it to the home page.

It's part of the reason why there's still only one poll. Don't like how it's set up at the moment, so I'm trying to avoid using it as much as I can.
