How do I start a poll?
The New Poll button next to New Topic on certain boards.

Can I request a [quite] tag, which quotes with emphasis?

One thing I'd love to see, 'though I do not know if it can be done, is to have the "recently unread topics" (which you can see by clicking Show unread posts since last visit) be sorted by subforum, and particularly that some of the forums can be hidden. The reason I want this is that it would help to separate the new posts in the Play By Post subforums from the rest. The recent unread topics page is there so people can find discussions to contribute to, and one cannot contribute to someone else's current game.

Is that possible?

"Correct" place for PF builds? Should they go in the minmax forum, or the general PF/D&D one? I'd guess they should still go in minmax, right?

PF optimization goes in Min/Max, yeah.

I used to be able to hit "Mark Read" for a forum, and it would mark all of the subforums as "read" too. Now it seems that no longer happens. This was useful for me to be able to quickly see which PbP games had been updated recently (I don't like subscribing to threads... I get enough spam in my email boxes).

So how do I search for through other poster's signatures to find their threads? When I go to "Member" at the top, I have to click on people's names.

I want to be complete, rather than haughty by just sorting by posts and saying "if you don't see them when hitting the next button, they aint worth it"

If it's just about finding members' threads, I don't think there's a way to go around having to check members individually (you can go around checking their posts or signatures for interesting threads by using the search function and setting it to return threads, though). I know there's no signature search function, and I'd have to ask Prime if we can add it, but it seems niche.
