Yeah, I have seen new multiple choice polls being made in the last months and wondered how they managed. I thought maybe thos People actually payed for that or whatever.

But yes, I just tried it with different Browsers. Microsoft edge does not work, but Internet Explorer 11 does. But only after I clicked "show everything" on a warning prompt. I just made a poll to test this:

Internet Explorer is a horrible, horrible browser. But it seems to work with misterpoll.

EDIT:

Quick update: I actially Chose the wrong ie version. So this was tested (and works) with Internet Explorer Version 5.4.10.2 to be precise. Cannot be bothered to test with other Versions.

I made another multiple choice poll. This one even has some dirty words in it to check wheter some one / an algorithm will censore it:

Thanks for the info and congrats on finding the work around! Was able to confirm this also works on internet explorer 11 version 11.0.23 however it does need the show everything prompt to appear which may mean reloading the site several times.

Figured out the problem thanks to FixYourDamnSite, I'm not an IT tech so this is my best interpretation of the problem and solution.

it seems the site being based on old scripting language is causing security concerns on modern updated browsers. In trying to protect your computer from potential harm your browser prevents the poll creation script from running. This is why when you click new question you're directed to a new, nonfunctioning page.

The solution is to bypass the concerns which each browsers does in a different way. If you're on chrome you may notice a shield icon in your address bar. If you click it will ask if you want to run unsecure script. Click yes, then you'll be able to create polls the same way you could last year.

Wow, garpthagain, it really works! I clicked the shield in Chrome and it started working. Thank you so much! Do you know also what to do for my poll to appear on my profile page?
