Due to popular interest, we have updated the guidelines on poll/survey questions.

It's clear that there's a need for questions like "What's the best beach for surfing on Oahu?" that require opinion based answers that could be helpful to others. However, we still do not allow poll questions like "this vs. that," true/false, yes/no type questions or those that elicit low quality answers like "What's your favorite?" or "What should I name my puppy?"

I have never seen this poll category you speak of. Poll questions aren't allowed as far as I know.

As far as I know the poll questions that are allowed is " What is the best place to blah blah blah " you should get the point. Again, as far as I know, the questions that are not allowed are " What's your favorite... " Yes/No questions and some other stuff I can't remember right now. I'm no mod, but I hope I helped :).
