We've noticed lots of users are keeping their polls private and not releasing them to the "Community" stream. As a result we've added an option to create polls in "paused" state. This way you can see the poll and edit it without risking stray votes. It also makes it easier to Repoll your own polls for internal use. This was not a problem early on but is becoming more of a issue as visitor traffic increases.
We continue to refine Quikipoll's usability in preparation for launch. One of the limitations we've had is that once a poll is created there is no way to edit it short of deleting it and creating it again. I'm happy to report this is being addressed and will be deployed shortly. Everything will be editable quickly and easily.
