Make Polls Editable Past 5 Minutes (edge case)

We have two threads on our forum - one for requesting features, and one for a poll about which features matter most.

People request features on one thread and then I add them to the poll, which is a closed thread. This keeps things really nice and organized for me.

The problem is I can’t edit the poll after 5 minutes, making this system a little useless.

Is there a way to force an exception to this rule? Perhaps admin-only?

Nevermind I realized I can set it to 2000000000 minutes. In 3000+ years I’ll come back and ask for a more permanent solution.

Scratch that - I get this error message now when I try to edit it:


I changed it to 5000 minutes and it worked. However, be warned: when you edit the poll, all the existing votes disappear.
