I came across Israel-based dPolls today. It’s a very quick and easy way to create a well designed, Ajax-rich interactive poll that can be integrated directly into a website.
The service is free. After a quick registration you can create public or private polls, and there is also an option to get the html and place the poll directly on a site. I’ve done this, and have pasted a quick poll below (Note: I am seeing performance issues already – this may get worse before it gets better). After voting, the current results appear within the poll box. Nice tool.
The only problems I encountered: you cannot edit a poll once its been created, so you have to simply start over. Also, the image upload feature doesn’t seem to work.
I believe there are other services that do this as well. Please let me know.
Ajaxian has written about this too. It looks like the founders emailed the usual suspects. :-)
