I've done a couple polls where the poll disappeared after a few hours but the associated post remained. The last one was yesterday where it was just about more racing games and hacks for PC wheel compatibility on the 5200, so I don't know why it would be removed.

The poll wasn't removed by an admin or moderator, so I'm not sure why it disappeared.  I do see that you edited the poll four times after the topic's initial creation, is it possible you accidentally deleted the poll question (or questions)?  I've not seen polls disappear on themselves, at least not yet.. 

 

Thanks,

No, it was up for several hours and three people responded. I thought maybe it was because I edited it and someone thought I was tampering with it or the poll auto-detructs if you edit it. I was just making grammar corrections and then trying to make it more streamlined, but it was before anyone responded. I did add some extra info to the message part later. I do have a tendency to edit my posts a lot for clarity or additional thoughts. Maybe if I  design it carefully in notepad ahead of time it will not self-destruct.
