Default Re: Poll Editing(:

I agree with this idea, but like Wacky said, people could change it and make it completely different. As Webberlily stated, you should flag a poll and ask a staff member to change it. That way it will be done fairly quickly, and the poll options won't be changed in a wrong way.

what if someone said do you like babies
and 27 people voted yes
and 1 person voted no i hate babies

and then they switched them
haha that'd be funny xD
but that's why. just to drive the point home there.

There are numerous people that go in topics and say "I voted" but maybe it would be nice of a change if they explained their choises. We should put in the topic : explain your choise?
If they post things like "I voted" maybe we should flag the post?
Just little ideas by the time.

Default Re: Poll Editing(:

I agree that it would be useful, because you know, sometimes you forget an option, or you've eliminated an option, or you just had a lot of typos, and it'd be nice to go back and change it.
but, like everyone said, people could edit them and change the results.
Like, think about for WNTM and Graphic Contests. If the creator didn't like one person and they were in the lead, they could just shuffle up the names to put their favorite contestant in the winning slot.

I think though that most people are pretty honest, so maybe that wouldn't happen? I don't know, I know some people wouldn't do that, I hope . . . I think it'd have to be on a trust code, people would just have to be trusted not to do anything wrong. Also it wouldn't be necessary to change poll results, because it's not like it would be a big deal. Even for a contest poll, it's a contest and for those kinds of polls maybe the admins and moderators would moderate it every now and then (;

Well as much as we would love to trust that people will do the right thing all the time it just doesn't happen all the time. It like the time when people would Modify Vm's and people were using it to give out personal information. You just don't really know what people would do with something like this. Thinks that we couldn't even think of now..

What if when you modify the poll it resets it so none of the votes come up?

Well if this ever was initiated then the makers of this feature would make sure that wouldn't happen.

If you're not happy with the way that you set up your poll, just flag it and ask to have it closed or deleted, and make a new one.

I think you're overestimating the mods and admins. They can't watch each poll 24/7 to make sure something like this wouldn't change, when they have bigger problems to watch out for.
The fact is, many people are dishonest, no matter what you think, you can never trust a person online, no matter how honest they are.
This enables a person to alter the results. You shouldn't be able to add or change at all. Simply flag and make a new one. This is a lot less stress on the mods/admins, and honestly although it could be useful, you have to look at both the pros and cons.
