Far too open a question.

You may have other unwritten requirements such as cost or other things.

Google your question and then without all your requirements, you may have to accept the usual poll systems,

Then add that to your search question.

To me this means you'll be hosting your site with some database and the Facebook login system. If this is your first web site, this is like you doing a moonshot before achieving low Earth orbit.

In other words you have a rather long list of requirements so let's hope you have prior sites to draw on in regards to your database and more.

Last question. You do have a team to work on this, right?

Personally ...

I consider any non-anonymous poll, where I have to login with an e-mail address or a facebook account as a ploy to earn money by selling both the contact info and the data I enter.

That's why I would never participate. Are you sure you want people to login?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
