Patrick.net polling now officially available

To create a poll, just create a thread as usual, but at the end of it, precede each of your response options with the new "r" tag I made up: <r>

Each of your response options will get a radio button next to it, unless there is only one response option, which will get a text box where people can input a number. (It doesn't make sense to have a poll with just one response option, so it's convenient to use that case for a poll where people guess a number.)

Responses are visible as soon as you vote.

You have to be logged in to vote so I can remember that you voted.

Features to add:

* histograms of results rather than just counts
* poll-closing times so no one can see the results until then

Anything else?
