How to Make a Poll on Discord

Discord is a popular communication platform used by gamers, friends, and other groups of people for chat, voice, and text-based conversations. In addition to these features, Discord also offers the ability to create polls to gather feedback from members of your community.

Here’s how you can create a poll on Discord:

  1. Open the Discord desktop app and select the server where you want to create the poll.
  2. Choose the text channel where you want to post the poll and click on the three-dot menu at the top left corner of the screen.
  3. Type out your question and options, and add up to six options in total. Click "Create Poll" once finished.
  4. Customize your poll by adding an image or GIF, changing the background color, or adding a description.
  5. Share your poll with your community by clicking on the "Share Poll" button and generating a link.

Tips for creating effective polls include keeping them short, using clear language, and being respectful of other people’s opinions. Discord polls can have up to six options and you can add an image or GIF to make them more visually appealing. To share your poll, click on the "Share Poll" button and generate a link that you can share in your server or send to individual users.

Polls are a great way to gather feedback from members of your community. You could use them to ask for suggestions for new features or improvements, or to see which game mode is the most popular among your group. Polls can also be used to make decisions as a group, such as deciding on a time for a meeting or choosing a restaurant for a group outing.

When creating a poll on Discord, it’s important to keep in mind that polls should be used sparingly and only when necessary. If you’re constantly bombarding your community with polls, they may become frustrated or disengaged from the conversation. It’s also important to respect other people’s opinions and avoid using polls as a way to manipulate or control others. Overall, polls are a powerful tool that can be used effectively on Discord if used wisely and thoughtfully.
