    It's a block that was made back in 2007.

    It doesn't use choice code, the block is designed to be addable anywhere in moodle, including mymoodle, something mod_choice can't do.

    Thanks Adam. In reviewing the block there were a number of small things but one is that since the code is listed as being for Moodle 2.4 there is an error about the addinstance method not being specified and this causes some errors that may keep folks from using the block. In addition, please provide the source code, tracker, and documentation URLS and in the documentation specify how poll is different from choice (advantages and disadvantages). Finally make sure that the zip file passes the validation check. If you have questions just let me know. Peace - Anthony
