This all sounds do-able, Thomas. Some comments/questions below:

These are the biggest Web forums: http://www.big-boards.com/
There's probably a good selection of forum software there, showing
what features are available.

You mean vote filtering? For party issues (party's own area in the
pollwiki) we can easily whatever filtering is necessary on the common
vote-server (V1). For other issues, we'd need a dedicated vote-server
for the party (V2). It could be set up as a count-only engine that
accepted no original votes, just autocast images. It would share the
same pollwiki (PW) with the other vote-servers.
Everybody would vote at V1. Party members would view the
party-filtered results at V2. That's the simplest set up for custom
