Delegating votes


(Loic Dachary) #1

Hi,

I’d like to be able to delegate my vote to someone, on a given category. For instance, if there is a poll in the feature category and I delegated my vote to user trustedfriend for all polls in the feature category, (s)he will have two votes instead of one.

The vote delegations could show in a fashion similar to users/myself/invited/redeemed and the poll plugin could use that when the delegated=true option is given.

Has this been discussed in the past ? The closest thing I could find is “endorsements”/trust between users; social network but it’s only marginaly related.

Cheers

This is very advanced poll functionality. I don’t even know of a single-purpose polls app that supports this.

Making a plugin is your best bet here.

Ok :slight_smile: Another approach would be to run adhocracy or liquidfeedback and make it work with discourse. Not sure what would work in the long run.
