Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 157 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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.
