I think "I'm a contestant" is a great alternative

EX 1:

Which frog do you like best?

•Spotted frog
•Bull frog
•Regular frog
•Tree frog
•I don't like the frogs.
•WEBKINZ-ADDICT007 only!

Okay, seriously. Can you not just vote for which one you like best? In this poll there is no reason to make a "So-and-so only" option.

Here is where you think it is necessary:


EX 2:

Who should win my WNTM?

•Frank the bulldog
•Sammy the dolphin
•Lisa the rabbit
•WNTM-Guru only

But it's not. Here is what you could do instead: •I am a contestant or host/ Can't decide/ Just want to see results

See? There is NO reason to make them hardly ever. Just put "Just want to see results/ Other" in place of so and so only because a lot of times, people vote for that because their opinion isn't an option or they just want to see the results.


Thanks!

Some of these users who make these polls are doing them for school projects. The option is there so that they can see the results without skewing them.
If the Pollster's opinion is visible for the voters to see, voters may be swayed one way or the other.
This gives them (the Author) the advantage of seeing UNBIASED poll results. When you press on that option, you are being belligerent and shouldn't even be voting, as far as I am concerned. If your option isn't presented, either state it or walk away from the poll. It is very unfair to the Author. But that is MY opinion.

I find myself clicking these too sometimes.... LOL. You're right, it CAN get annoying. Usually I put a "Other//Results" option, and if I have a preference I vote for it. Besides, it won't sway the voting anyways. Just re-figure out the percentages by subtracting 1 from whichever you voted for!

Yes it does, because if others see that someone has voted on the Author only, they may do the same and not give a valid opinion. It is unfair to the Author and it is rude.

Okay, I see your point, but..

even on "visible"polls the feature doesn't work. And you could just not say what you voted for. And couldn't you just subtract one from the option you voted for?

It annoys me too. Sometimes I just vote for them to be defiant!

Good Point!

i like to use the SO-SO option it's there poll . but sometimes if they do not have the option u want u should go to a different poll. it effects the poll if u press the other option.
