Members Choice Monthly Voting Poll

This is a discussion on Members Choice Monthly Voting Poll within the Suggestions and Improvements forums, part of the Administration category; I'm wondering if the option for results to be viewed before the poll is over should be removed? I think ...

    Default Members Choice Monthly Voting Poll

    I'm wondering if the option for results to be viewed before the poll is over should be removed? I think it can influence people's vote if they see the results before voting.

    A good suggestion but beyond the forum software I believe...

    It's probably an easy hack but it requires coding skills.

    Personally, it doesn't affect me at all.......Buuuuut, If enough people think it's a good idea, I'll look into it.

    So, members what say you?

    Thx for the suggestion - Marko

    Ok ... I thought vBulletin had that option ... maybe it was the old phpBB forums.

    I didn't even realize there was that option, I must be from Stunned Trek ..... To blindly go where everyone else has been.

    Yep that's right. Always has been.

    I bring this up because I always try to make a decision before I see the results. That way I trutly choose the photo I think is technically best.
    Otherwise my compassion will often make me throw a vote in for someone with little or no votes rather than add yet another vote to a popular photo.

    But I'm sure some people will be unsure how to vote, look at the results and go with the flow thereby choosing the photo(s) leading the poll.

    well okay but I never do that. I'm easy either way but if people want to know what's popular before they vote, what can you do
