Paul T has an idea which is just so crazy it might work.

He's working on a screen / feed scraper for Tribe discussion forums which lets you turn threads into polls. The poster who starts the first thread places a list of options, simply by wrapping them in double equals signs like this :

Which is your favourite exotic Brazilian fruit?

== Acai ==

== Cupuacu ==

== Pitanga ==

== Caja ==


Any later post can then vote for an option by pitting a single = in front of it. eg =Caja

That's it. It then totals the votes for each user.

Very nice. And very wiki :-)
