Those are generally so the poll creator can see the results, but it actually screws with the overall accuracy of the poll.

I think it's pointless. Your vote counts too!

That is allowed, it's actually so the poll-maker can see the results, and keeping the polls fair.
If they didn't make that option, and just voted for one of the choices, then that option would always be one vote extra. Do you see how that works out?
But of course, that isn't the best plan, because people click that anyways. I think that the poll maker should be able to see the results without having to vote.

Exactly. You cannot view poll results without voting.

Yeah i agree,there's no point in making answers if one of them's gonna say: "only click if you are (WI username)

I really hate those polls (no offense)

If you want to see results, make a results option. I TOTALLY see where you need a results button, but dont specify it for yourself.
Example: If someone made the poll Do you like teh color green?
-Yes
-No
-Bob only

okay so maybe someone doesnt really like green, but they dont hate it either. they are curious about teh results tho, but the option says "bob only" so susie wont click on it and will never find ou tthe color green lol
and george feels the same way as susie, but he chooses bob only. that throws off bob because obviously, he didnt want people voting there..

But what is worst is "Bob only! If you click I will report you!"
Now, I don't think you can get in trouble for voting on a poll lol. And whenver I make a poll i cant even tell who voted what anyway. But just say I could. Bob could report George just because george wanted to know who liked the color green... really!

and i know WI polls arent this serious but consider this:
In real life voting for president... Do you see a spot to check off "susie only! no one vote here or they go to jail!" really. I mean, there is no results option on a president thing but you can getmy point, right.

SO next time you make a poll... a results/ other should do. not a "me only!!!!!" or a threatening "or ill report you!" its a free country, vote howyou like (lol, jk... well...)

I do not mean to be rude but, I don't agree.

See, if I made a poll and made the options:
"Cool"
"Okay"
"Not Really"
"NOOO" &
"PrincessToeshoe Only"

It maens I want to see what everyone else thinks...but not me.



XOXO,

Default Re: ~It's really kind of pointless~

I think it's kind of pointless...if you are the owner of the poll, you shouldn't click on a certain button until you see the results and then make your descision. Making an unnecessary button just messes up the percentages.

I agree when your voting for any thing does it say: "Dougalina only?"or something like that (i know that name is kinda random )
