How do you end a poll?

I guess I screwed up when making the poll. Now want to end the poll "What do you think?" but can't figure out how to do it. I think the poll has run it's course and needs to end. I also think that the thread should also end as well as it has also served it's purpose... seeing the points of views of others.

A little Mod help please...

I have a hard time reading some people's expressions online so excuse me for asking, Your not asking to end the pole because the majority didn't see it your way or you? Unless a thread gets severely off topic or tunrs into a pissing contest they should remain open. Some don't access the internet daily and may get cut short on being able to respond. Just my rant though, no biggie

I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.

I didn't ask to end the poll because others didn't share my view. In fact, I wanted to hear the views of others. I didn't want the poll to run for a long time and that's where I screwed up. I only wanted to get a sampling of how others felt and in that, it served it's purpose in a short time. As for ending the thread itself... Others had indeed shared their opinions... even if not all the members were able to respond before the thread ended. Got a wide variety of views while it was open and saw the concerns of others to my idea... That IS what I wanted... not for others to see things my way. However, I did feel that if the thread continued, it could easily turn into a pissing match and cause hard feelings within the membership and that is something I didn't want. You must admit that some of the responses did rather strong for and against the idea... I myself even almost got to a point to where I wanted to verbally slap one member and I'm usually a very mellow person. Once something turns into an argument or pissing match, then it's too late to stop things and repair hurt feeling and considerable damage could be done. Right or wrong, that's the reason I wanted to end the thread. I just noticed that the poll is indeed closed, but the thread is still open... I still have my concerns about a pissing match, but I'll accept the mods leaving it open.

though peoples opinions vary and not everone agrees on everything all the time, Remember, We all share the love of atvs and I`m sure that we could all meet up and ride together and never have a problem, I certainly don`t intend on disrespecting anyone on this site ever but if someone asks for opinions, they are going to get alot of them, some of them may be harsh. If you can`t deal with the criticism be carful what you ask for.
