#1812 closed enhancement (fixed)

Avoid showing results during voting

Reported by: jasg Owned by: jasg
Priority: Unspecified by Maintainer Milestone: Unspecified

Bug Status: Unconfirmed

Description

When the person votes, the result of the voting, appears inmediately on the right side of the same screen.

That means...that the person inmediately after voting knows what the status of the voting is. If you are the first to vote, there is no problem, but from the second one on you can read what others have voted, and what the results are. Ideally, the person must not know what the results are until the end of the voting.

I woudl suggest that the results appear at the very end of the voting.

I make a patch to solve this.

  • Keywords r! added; r? removed

Not sure what original Poll authors kept in mind but I guess letting people give several votes is not common practice.
I think would be better if people can give only one vote (but change it) and not hiding real time results would be also useful.

In order to maintain the original behaviour, I added a check box inside the poll creation form. This check box enables or disables the display of vote results immediately while voting.

It stops voters from knowing what others have voted so far, so previous results don't affect the individual vote.

jasg, btw you can pick this activity up :)
last who commited something was me and it was mostly bugfixes and I don't have strong vision how Poll should look like.
