Can't add a poll?

We used to be able to add a poll to an existing thread using the Thread Tools, but today I don't have that ability to do that in either the week 4 MLB thread or year-long baseball sheep. I've tried in both IE 11 (with compatibility turned on, which got my smilies back) and Firefox 28, my usual browsers of choice.

Just waiting for someone to point out something obvious to me.

Re: Can't add a poll?

Once you put a thread up, you have a 30 min window in which you may add a poll. After that, you need to contact a mod or admin to add the poll.

Thanks--has this always been the case? I seem to remember having the option on older threads, but maybe it was just my imagination.

At one point I think it was less time, but there has always been a time limit on when you can come back and add a poll.

Re: Can't add a poll?

I was trying to add a poll for the Memorial Day baseball thread, but the 30-minute window expired while I was researching. Could a mod please add the poll? Sorry, I know it's a PITA.

Question: Which player had the most distinguished combination of service and MLB career?
Answers: 15
Grover Cleveland Alexander, suffered injuries as artillery officer in WWI
Hank Bauer, 32 months of combat, 11 campaign ribbons, two Bronze Stars and two Purple Hearts for the Mariners in WWII
Yogi Berra, served in the Navy on D-Day before MLB career began
Lou Brissie, Bronze Star and two Purple Hearts in WWII
Jerry Coleman, flew 57 combat missions in WWII, served in Korea
Joe DiMaggio, three years in the Air Force in WWII, no combat duty
Bob Feller, five campaign ribbons and eight battle stars in four years in WWII
Hank Greenberg, served 45 months in the Army in WWII
Gil Hodges, Bronze Star with Marines in WWII
Garry Maddox, two years in the Army in Vietnam
Christy Mathewson, served in the Army in WWI after career
Johnny Pesky, three years in the Navy in WWII
Warren Spahn, three years in WWII; battlefield commission, a Purple Hart, and the Bronze Star
Hoyt Wilhelm, Purple Heart for injuries at the Battle of the Bulge, WWII

Re: Can't add a poll?

And yes, technically I know this is more appropriate for Veterans Day but most of this stuff is done on a whim and who knows if I'll think of it at that time.
