When a poll is set to only show results “on vote”, no one is allowed to see the results before voting, including the poll creator. (I’m ignoring staff because I have no insight into that.) I rarely use this option, but when I do it’s usually to minimize the chance of bias in a poll (though people can always change their vote after seeing the results anyway). In those cases though, I generally don’t want to vote myself as I’m polling others. For that reason, wouldn’t it make sense for me to still be able to see the results without voting since I created the poll?
I agree. It is frustrating not being able to see the poll results because you don’t want to bias the results e.g. if the poll were about how good my site is.
- I totally agree!
- On v2.3.9 I’m able to view the results anyway by selecting something, but not submitting and then clicking on the “view results” button
Just wanted to check in on this one since another user on https://community.wanikani.com/ just got caught by this.
I do think the poll creator should always be able to view results @eviltrout, perhaps we can schedule this for work on Monday?
