No interface to set poll intro text
Open, LowestPublic


When you go into the interface for creating a new poll (Special:SecurePoll/create), there is nowhere to set the poll intro text. So then when you open a brand new poll, it shows "[intro]" where the intro text should be and you have to enter the intro text from the translation interface instead. Since the field is required, there should be a field in the creation interface that let's you add the intro text as part of the poll creation.

How is it added currently?

Is there any use for an API module for doing this? (low priority)

@Reedy: I think you currently need to go in and manually edit xml or possibly the DB. No need for an API module, this should just be set from the UI with all the other poll attributes.

@Reedy: I believe it is currently added via the Translate interface.
