I'd like to test how the Forum manages polls. We think that if you view the poll results before voting, you either get a "You have already voted" message or your vote turns up as a null, meaning it is counted in the overall total but does not go to any of the poll choices.

To test this hypothesis, could I ask interested parties to do the following:

- Either select A, B or C, then make a brief post stating what choice you made; or

- View the poll results BEFORE you vote, then make a post saying that you viewed results (and if you don't mind, what the posts results were: A, B, C and total votes).

This will allow us to see exactly how the polling system works. I'll keep the poll open for a week.

Thanks!

I viewed the results first, and it now says already voted.

I never selected any choice.

Same here,

Results are:

Choice A [ 1 ] ** [100.00%]

Choice B [ 0 ] ** [0.00%]

Choice C [ 0 ] ** [0.00%]

Total Votes: 4

Mine appeared to be the 4th one, and no vote was entered by me either, you have already voted in this poll is what it says. And when I go back to vote, it does not let me cast a vote, bummer, I wanted to vote for C.

perhaps a block to viewing votes unless voting?

Evan, I've made it so you can see results without giving up your right to vote. Hope this is OK. Simple change to revert if needs be.
