Need to ask about polls

I am new to the forum so I need to ask a question, please forgive my ignorance. I note that some threads are called polls - like the one kitiara did with the manga type image, each person did one image and then it was voted on.

I have made a vector image in flash and would like to put this up and challenge other users to do similar and then get votes in. Can I do this? what is the correct procedure? - I note there is a post a poll option when posting.

Just want to get it right and not get blasted by moderators.

Thank you.

generally you’d post a thread first with the rules of the battle and see if there is any interest, then if anyone is interested, you start the battle, and once everyone has their entry in then you post a seperate poll (with that option you noted)

ok yeldarb,
Thank you.
