Default Re: For Polls: DON'T click on the posters option. Read Inside~

Gee, Lilyrose, I would have thought you would understand the point behind the 'skew-control.' This is the way that the author keeps control of the thread without their influence or bias. If they say outright that they don't like Green beans and people do like green beans but are reluctant to say so because the author has voiced their opinion already, they may not vote 'TRUE.'
HOWEVER, this 'Skew control' gives the Author a presentation without BIAS and that way she can also view the outcome of the poll at any point in time instead of having to wait until the middle of the poll to cast her own vote.
I agree with the Author of this thread DON'T click that button if your name is not on it! (I know, it is the title, not the content) There are options, if your option is not presented, tell the author, but don't press the Skew control. It is STILL the author's thread!

Hehe, .....
I don't even know what you are talking about. The thread owner can just not vote, I thought? LOL, I just never understand those because when you tell someone not to do something, they want to do it more.

If the author doesn't vote, they can't see the results which is the whole point of putting the option for them to vote on. They don't want to influence the vote, as Dixiecup said.
People really should not vote on those ones, no matter how much they want to, there is a point to them, and the point is ruined when someone does that.

Sorry-I just have to disagree here.
What if that person wants an other button? I agree, they shouldn't click it.
But why make something that says, "Don't you dare click here! Me only!"
Just make an, other/username option. It just tempts other people,
like
"Click the button! You know you want to!"
Get it? So although I don't agree, I don't TOTALLY disagree

usually that doesn't happen but sometimes people don't know and they want to know what others are saying and i think they are actually being considerate. This is because, would you rather having someone messing up your results to see what is winning,, or picking the button "just for ______" think about it, you can just pretend those votes aren't there and just don't count them

Now I understand. That is what I didn't get. Thanks for clearing that up.

I dissagree.

there Is no rule that you can't click on option - even If its like "Just for *Name here*" people can still click It. theres no way to prevent this. :3 It makes people feel excluded and It Isn't fair to everyone.

Edit:

Make a poll short and sweet :]

Don't have extra options like "IDK" or something; If someone really wants to answer they'll state there opinion! It doesn't matter what others think.

When i post a poll, my option says: For Jordan~ Only Please. WWJD? Not click this And i still have people clicking it. There is a reason for this, The poll-maker, so to speak, is asking a question and needs an answer or cant decide. what are they supposed to pick if they dont know the answer? Exactly, their button.So please do not click others button. Its rude and disrespectful, and if you cant answer it, dont click anything. Thank you. (BTW, WWJD=What Would Jesus Do)
I agree. I've had that happen before.
People need to resist the temptation.

How is that not fair? It's for the owner to see the results. They want to know what people think. How is that not fair?

Then perhaps they should vote themselves. the others can't see the answers until you vote unless you put on the "See results" option. You don't have to post what you voted, so It Isn't an influence.
