Okay so I just went to create a multiple-choice poll and hot damn if that's not a totally undiscoverable interface, I was flummoxed for much longer than I should have been.
(For those who haven't encountered this, you have just guess that clicking on the radio buttons next to the poll will change them to checkboxes )
I'm grimly unsurprised that Eugene pooh-poohed this exact complaint already (because multiple-choice polls are "not a priority" and it would make the interface "too complex", and it's fine as "an easter egg"): https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon/issues/10873
I have a bone to pick with a definition of "complex" that results in hiding basic features behind UX mechanisms that are impenetrable to the average user, creating a two-tiered experience where nerds like me who are steeped in How Computers Work get to have extra "easter egg" features like...allowing people to choose more than one poll option 🙄
