I tried to post a poll in this forum with six options and when I tried to submit it, it said "Too many poll options". I reduced the number of options and tried again. In the end, I had it down to TWO options and it still said that was too many.
I tried it in both Mozilla Firefox 0.8 and Internet Explorer 6.0.28.
I don't know if this problem is specific to me, or if I just don't have access to post polls in this forum or something, but if so, it's a pretty odd way for the software to handle it.
