Purchased 14th January. I've set it up in nodes. I am unsure how people actually vote? Are there tick boxes like for polls?

Is it possible to have an option to change how the voting works? I think for some people, it would better to select the winner based on how many upvotes.

1) Can admin see who has voted for who? (To check members didn't vote for themselves).
2) Can members see who has voted for who - and can this be turned on and off?
No, but there is an addon for that:

3) If it sets it up as a separate thread for the competition, can you choose which node that is in and will the thread remain after voting has ended?
Threads are created in the forum with the type "voting competition" type and remain with the same type until the thread is moved or type changed.
4) Presumably you end the competition manually - will the results still show or disappear?
The results remain. You can only change the start or end time of voting.
5) Can admin remove a vote if necessary?
No, there is no such thing. We may add this to Who voted add-on in ACP content voting log.

These are the up and down voting with average score display like in Suggestion and Question threads.

Should downvotes just be ignored or completely disabled?

Thank you.

With the "Who voted" addon, could you clarify please - does it just show who actually voted, or does it show who each voter voted for? What I mean is - can admin see who they voted for? Not members see who each voted for particularly. So I can check there's no cheating! ie members voting for themselves.

I've got some good uses planned for this on my site, I've only run one competition so far but it has already increased activity in that area :)

Two things I've noticed from testing, when using the average votes method can the decimal value be changed from 5 to 2 decimal places as it doesn't look great on some mobile devices (tablets) as is? Also, I might have missed a setting to do this but is it possible to have an option where members cannot change their vote after submission.

Edit: scrap the first one, tidied it up now, the problem wasn't related to this addon.
