How do I participate in Meta Stack Overflow and not die trying?

If I ask a polling question (on MSO) about how to improve the SE Graphical User Interface, or what aspects of the GUI are bugging users, I suppose the question would be closed as a polling question. So my question is: How should I ask such a question to avoid it gets closed?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
One problem is that, by your own admission, you're asking "polling questions". The FAQ covers what kinds of questions you should ask. And a quick check of the other upvoted questions on the site should also give you a good idea. –  Cody Gray Aug 20 '11 at 3:42
    
I don't think it's a dupe, at all, but Cody's reply is good. –  GUI Junkie Aug 20 '11 at 7:56

There is no need for such a question. UI improvement suggestions already get posted as questions here on meta under the tag, where they can be discussed and voted on as appropriate.

So such a poll would be more or less equivalent to the requests tab.
