I'm just wondering about the public poll option , and it's mechanics.:)
I wan't to know why you are able to see what other people have voted at the begining -("see poll results" - button ) until you haven't yet voted , but when you vote on the poll it disapears.:confused:
Why does it disapear after that?
Isn't the point of making a poll public, that you can see what other people have voted?


Edit : Another small thing , could you fix the confused smiley :confused: , so the question marks are clearly visiable abouve it's face, and it doesn't look like a sad smiley ;)

Yeah, I've noticed that with the polls myself. It is rather silly.

And with the confused smiley, just make the ?s white.

That would be because after you vote it replaces the voting options in the thread with the results, so it doesn't make any sense to link to the results if you can see them anyway and therefore the link is removed. Or I don't understand your question.

I believe PerfectTear was refering to being capable of seeing which user voted for which option before voting, but not after.

PT was talking about how after you vote you can no longer see who voted for what.

And you didn't fix the smiley Grady. :p Just make the ?'s silver so that they're easier to see.

:confused:

Oh, just click on the number of people that voted and it will take you there.

It's just a silly issue with the way vBulletin and most other popular forums are coded.
There's not much to be done about it.
