FAQ: Updating Threads After Poll Goes Live
Once a poll has gone live, the original author of a thread needs to edit the first post in a thread to change the thread type from Idea to Praise. This helps admins and other users tell live polls apart from suggestions. It will also be helpful to change the title to indicate the poll is live.
