I think there should be a set time for polls to end so we see end results and not an on going thread.

What do you think?

There are pros and cons to having time limits on polls. Many people do not check in that often, so the poll should not be too short, and then a poll may get "stale" or irrelevant after six months to a year. Perhaps a compromise would be that any time a new person responds to a poll, it is automatically given maybe 30 days more to stay open after the initial 3 or 6 months it was set up for initially. This way, dynamic and living polls would have a nice long life, but abandoned polls would eventually go into the history file. For example, "which team do you want to win the whatever" should probably not remain open much after the whatever has happened (superbowl, etc.). But a poll that asks if you like A or B more is more likely to have a longer lifetime. Time-dependent polls should have a shorter life than simple opinion polls for obvious reasons. There's no law that says that VF cannot experiment with different poll settings until they find the perfect combination. Hard to know that up front.
