Needed three options personally;

50+ / PC / very large monitor
1961 A10SR, spent a fortune at SRM
1961 A7SS, finally the right green
2011 New addition 1937 Empire Star, twin port, high pipes. Turned out to be the most unreliable bike I have handled.
2017 finally found the liner/barrel were flexing and causing all the overheating/nipping up. Early B33 barrel fitted and it's reliable at last!

I eventually worked out I needed to go to the forum help section to do my vote.....to see the original post rather than replies.

Thanks, what confused me is that my iPad always logs me in “automatically” so to perform a login, I would have to logout (manually) first, so an “instruction” is needed for the scenario where a (dum, like me) user is already logged in?

Hello, no problem, here's a description attempt.

A poll will always be at the very top (of any topic\posts related to the poll), 1st thing below the main menu list.
Only logged in members can see poll\vote.

If logged in and 'entering' the poll topic by clicking on one of the reply links, like in 'Show unread' or 'Recent Posts' list, just scroll to the top of the topic.

So there should be no need to find the original 1st poll topic, if seeing any poll related post, scroll to the top.
