Hello, I am neutrino and I have encountered a problem.

I have tried to create a poll but it said they were unable to save the poll after I finished it.

Is there a way around this, am I not qualified, or is there something missing?

It's a very known bug. It works for some people and it doesn't work for others. No matter what poll you make, it will say "we were unable to save your poll". Normally, it will post regardless of this message (but still say it), which results in people resubmitting it constantly and creating duplicates. If it still did not post, then the reasons could be you tried to upload an image from your computer, you picked an image from google and it was "corrupt" (there's no way to tell this), there was some sort of issue with ALL your descriptions and/or answers, or it just doesn't work. I keep telling the head moderator to try and fix this, but it doesn't appear that it will be fixed anytime soon. So, we apologize for this inconvenience.

Thanks, I'll see what I can do and hopefully they can fix this!
