  1. Blind polls!

    Different than anonymous, as only the poster gets info about how many people have voted for each option. Neither names nor numbers appear next to the options as people vote. Instead, perhaps a bot can notify the original poster of the totals (which gets updated each time someone votes). This would be good so that votes are not swayed by seeing other people's votes.

    • Username with '.' in it gets treated as a URL

      When a user named example: 'mr.potato' votes in a poll, their username is treated as a link and the hyperlink redirects to www.mr.potato

      • Make it better looking and take up less space in the chat

        No need to say "Simple Poll" down the bottom when it's already up the top. No need to have a Delete Poll button visible to all users.
        Emoji and counter are different colours and designs, could make this look nicer. The question is also repeated unless the user deletes the command. Overall takes up much more room than a simple emoji react 'poll'

                • Argument to only allow 1 response per voter

                  At times it would be nice to only allow 1 response per voter. "Radio Button" style instead of "Checkbox" style

                  As it is now people occasionally choose multiple responses when it's not appropriate.

                  • Poll library

                    I would be useful to have a library of polls to recall on demand, or schedule when to appear on a channel.
                    (i.e. you could have polls for several food delivery menus. You could schedule the poll to chose where to eat and then based upon the votes you would recall just the poll for the menu of the restaurant most people voted)

                                  Allow spaces in the options. The example in slack shows that you put the options as strings inside of quote marks. I don't need the quote marks to show. I want them to be containers for the option text strings. anything inside the quotes is a string that shows up as an option.

                                        • Time limit for a poll

                                          A poll should have an optional end time.

                                          When a poll has ended everyone could be notified of the results and people should no longer be able to modify their responses.
