Incomplete edit options in Edit Poll

This may be by design, but:

You can edit polls on Xenforo. You can edit all poll characteristics except to make non-public voting into public voting. That is, if you start a poll with public voting, you can edit it to disable it. You can go back to edit and you won't be able to change it to publicly visible voting. Again, I understand why this might be by design to protect users, but wanted to ask.

If it is indeed by design, any way a simple SQL script can update a poll on my board with this? It is ID #44 thread. Thanks

I have moved this from bugs as it is by design.

Making a private poll public after members have voted on it is a breach of privacy.

You can change the public_votes field in the database for that poll to 1 to make the votes visible.
