I was thrilled to see my polls made the trip! However, I need to update one of the poll titles on my Side Effects with the hCG Diet hub. I've been keeping the title updated with how many people have had serious side effects. I got a message though that if I edit the poll, it will wipe out the results or close the poll. Is there any way to do this? I have close to 2,000 responses and do not want to do anything to mess that up.
Sounds like it is scary to edit. Why don't you just put the new information in a text capsule above the pole? You can code it as an H2 so it will be a heading and exactly the same size as capsule titles.
You can edit the *capsule title* without losing any data. If you edit the poll question or any of the answers you will lose the data from all 2000 responses. When you say "poll title" I'm not sure if you're referring to the capsule subtitle (ok to edit) or the poll question (not ok to edit, unless you want to lose all of that poll data).
I'm not sure what you mean by "poll description" - can you clarify?

Have you ever used a Poll capsule in one of your hubs?My first time was today, in four new hubs which make "A Hitchhiking Saga." Fun way to invite participation from readers!Where have you put the code outside Hubpages to bring traffic to your hub?

Has any *experienced* hubber ever used more than one comment capsule in their hubs?

I have poll capsules in two of my hubs that don't seem to be working properly. They don't seem to give the user a chance to answer, but instead show what has already been answered. I'm not sure if there is a flag set once you've answered the question so that you can't answer it again,...

It would be very nice if we could close a poll capsule in such a way that:A. No further votes can be made by visitors.B. The previous results are still displayed.C. A little sign says “Poll Closed.” or some such.
