Re: let’s build a poll plugin!
Well I don’t like to re-invent the wheel if it’s been done.
Many times there are lots of little things you don’t think about when you try to build something from scratch vs convert a program that’s had years of development and on it’s 3rd generation.
It’s far enough work at times to make things work with bbpress. I’ve already spent half a dozen hours this month tracking down subtle bugs in other people’s plugins.
But if you want to try to make one from scratch I’ll do what I can though I am not a professional programmer by any means.
