Default ***Already coded!*** - Unvote/Change Vote/Revote/Delete vote

EDIT 1:
Well, venturing into the non-coded, theoretical land of nothingness...


There could be a time limit of 20 seconds.

EDIT 2: I mean, you couldn't change after 20 seconds of you voting.

Anyone asking if it's possible, it is. VB supports it with a bit of extra code.

The idea is that if you accidentally vote wrong, you can delete that vote and vote again.

Various people on VB forums have coded it, so it could be added.

There is no abuse possible I see from it.

yes that would be nice, but i think that maybe too many people will change their votes a lot. I have voted wrong a few times, so maybe they could make a rule like only being able to change your vote one or two times, that way it would prevent people changing their vote multiple times.

If members could change their votes, it would be hard for the poll owner to keep track of things. If you ever click on the wrong vote, just post saying your real answer. I don't think this would be a good idea.

yeah, that's a great idea!!!!! i always accidentally vote wrong, lol. and to prevent other people from always changing their votes, they could have like, three chances per day to change them.
for what canes said, that makes a good point. maybe someone could add a "refresh" button or something? the poll creater can just keep clicking that button every once in a while.

It's nice, but I don't really think it's a good idea. It would get confusing for the poll owner, and plus people should be more careful for what they vote for in the first place.

I agree.

The other problem is the tempation to 'join the masses' or 'support the underdog'. Once you know how other people have voted this can very much influence voting patterns.

I would like having this option. Like, maybe you vote one option, but later you do more research and change your mind - it'd be great to be able to update your vote! ^^ However, the members who posted before me do have a point - it might lead to members abusing the feature. As long as everyone was honest about things, I think it'd be great, though.

If you vote then change your mind, you could post again on the thread in question, and explain your new insights on the subject. That would actually be more informative than just changing your vote.

I personally don't see a big problem with how it is. The moderators and administrators have more important things to work on then just someone that happened to accidentally vote on. Lets prioritize. The people that voted wrong can simply post their new thoughts on the thread.

Yeah, I do not like that idea either. Your heart is in the right place, but unfortunately, not everyone is honest like you. I do not like making mistakes, and more than once I have wished that I could revote, but I think it is better to make extra sure that you are voting for the choice you really want. I agree that your choice could be influenced if you knew the answers, so being able to change your vote might taint the results sought after by the poll owner.

Just my opinion. But it's a good idea anyway!
