Can someone explain me the math behind polls?

(Markus) #1

It’s a little bit confusing for me and others to understand the mathematical summary behind the percentages.

I’m the opinion that all answers per poll should result to 100% and not 200%. Even for two votes. That’s not logical.

Is this a bug?

Wasn’t this just fixed?

I’m running the latest-release +59. :frowning:

The meaning of that poll result is:

  • 49% of all voters selected “Montags”
  • 24% of all voters selected “Dienstags”

This seems to be a multiple choice poll, so it is perfectly normal that the sum of the percentages is greater than 100%. But the -1% definitely looks like a bug.

Yeah I will deactivate the “rounding up to 100%” on multiple polls. Nice catch :+1:

@terraboss, I just pushed a fix for multiple choice polls :fried_shrimp:
