well for example if i created a poll in the sports section, named: Who should be the next Polish priminister, wouldn't you just move it to the according section, Polish History/Politics?? As i can't place it their myself.
If you wanted to place a poll about the next Polish prime minister you would create it in Polish Politics and History because you can indeed create a poll there.
In fact maybe they should be allowed on all the threads??? i mean why not??
They are currently suitable where they are and I doubt they'll ever be available in the off topic section.
