Lack of Interest option to disable "view results" on polls

Discussion in 'Closed Suggestions' started by infinite.loop, Feb 17, 2011.


Would you like to be able to disable the "view results" button on polls?

  1. Yes, disableing is enought

  2. Yes, but I would like to have XenForo display a text I define in poll options instead

    2 vote(s)
  3. No, keep that button (please reply and explain why)

    (if you clicked "view results" before you voted, then this thread is about you ;) )

    One thing I find very annoying is that users are able to view the current poll results BEFORE they actually vote.
    Many times this then causes that majority of the users votes for those options, which have allready gotten the most votes.

    It would be great if XenForo could have an option (in poll creation section of the thread) to either have the "view results" button present, or not. That would be the easiest option.

    However. Since XenForo is fresh and original, it would be a lot cooler if instead of simply disabeling/hiding that button, the poll creator could define a text that shows up instead of displaying the results.
    So I could then enter something like "Hey, that is cheating! Please vote for what YOU think!" which then shows up as soon as a user who did not vote yet, presses the "view results" button

    Simply removing the button wouldn't work...


    This suggestion was also discussed in this thread: http://xenforo.com/community/threads/suggestion-member-loses-vote-when-viewing-poll-results.4024/

    I know. This feature would have to be coded into XenForo to get the expected/described functionality.
