Ideally for my own use, option 2, but option 3 would be really neat.  I'm sick of having to fill out more space than I need for a question.  Anyone else here share this sentiment?

Option 2 in this poll is "no", whereby the question is, "Delete the question line in polls?"  Which means that although the rest of your post shows that you want them removed, you voted the opposite way?  I think you've pretty much defeated your own argument.

Anyway, I definitely do not support this.  Quite often when people post news articles, they'll put the headline of it in the thread title, and then perhaps an opinion poll attached to it.  The poll of course warrants different text to what was put in the title.  Also, whereas there is a character limit in thread titles, there isn't one (AFAIK) in poll questions, which means that long questions can be abridged in the title, and expanded in the poll.

I just slept for 11 hours, so I should need a nap today, but we'll see.

I think having the option should be available...

I don't think we should waste time applying/coding a hack when you can just type a period or something.

^^^^

And, in the few times that I've made a poll, the subject for the thread and the poll question are two different statements.  Plus, the question box for the poll question has more character spaces available than the thread subject line.
