Hello All,

We would like to announce new features on Polls. Below is the summary.

1. Poll closing date: Now you can set closing date for polls after which voting will be closed.

2. Advanced pie charts: New look and feel

3. Featured Polls: Now creative poll of the week contest winning polls will be tagged with Featured Polls.

4. New poll suggestions: Author polls and Featured polls in tabs just below the poll result/voting form.

Hope you like these features. Please let me know if you face issues or find any bugs.

Thank you,
Maverick

    I liked the idea of poll closing date it was needed.

    Pie chart looks good, but its not yet complete.. need modifications..
    Also its confusing.. earlier bar chart was showing option. percentage & bar at same line.. now we need to match all things. As colours are not specifing option..
    have a look at this picture

    or

    It should show which colour represents which option, also with percentage votes received, which is currently not showing.


    Featured Polls: Now creative poll of the week contest winning polls will be tagged with Featured Polls.
    I cant see it yet.. where is it? :huh:


    New Poll suggestion is again a good idea to show some polls created earlier by same users to new users.(which might not be accessed otherwise)

    hi,
    i also have an opinion that the new pie chart is little complicated..Its good,but little confusing as Amit said..
    maybe thats because we are not used to that style..When we see the pie chart more and more,i think we may get adapted to the style.

    Also..it would be better if the latest poll of the Author is shown in the 'Author Polls' tab.. because i believe most of us make bad polls in the beginning and later improves.Like some users have GK type questions as their first polls, then after understanding the correct way, they started creating good polls.Here in this case, those early bad polls come in the first place :)

    Other features like poll closing date are very apt idea for a poll! :) ..and its really good.

    Maverick,
    i don't know if this is called a bug..But i think there is a little problem.
    In the tab called 'Author polls',Only the first 6 polls of the author appears every time.and,Suppose if we select any one from that list also,the same 6 polls remain.!
    So the current poll which we are watching also will appear in the 6 polls listed under that tab!

    The polls feature has become very attractive. I need some time to understand the real way to operate it in the new system

    The only thing that I have noticed is that after clicking for voting the the action does not show posted. Looks a bit heavy.

    Hi All, Thank you very much for the feedback.
    @Amit, may be we have seen the bar graph so much time and we used to it. I believe the current graph would be useful in the long term. If not we will revert to the plane bar of do some more on this.

    The pie chart you have shown is useful when the options length is less say 5-10 characters. What is the case when we have 100 character 5 options? It will not fit around the pie chart. That is the reason why we chose this method.

    And the percentage of votes is shown just after the number of votes. Is that not you are looking for?

    @MC, I will do the update for it to show latest polls. Thanks for noticing this.

    @Harish, do you mean you are not able to vote? Please let me know on which poll you have voted and any error you get like javascript error.

    @Parthiban, I agree with you. We should welcome change and the reason why we do all these modifications :) .

    When opportunity is in front of you, don't hesitate to catch it. It will never come to you again. - Maverick

    Hello Maverick,

    On clicking voting button it takes the vote. I am able to vote. Yet the page remains as it is, showing that the action is over.

    If I click it again it shows "you are permitted to vote once only"...

    I faced a problem today.When casted a vote the action is going on indefinitely.It doesn't comes to an end and I just clicked next poll.On checking 'statics' there I saw point for casting vote and hence ensured that vote had polled.For all polls today the same effect takes place.
