Should we have the ability to have multiple polls, see results, and weight polls to make polls more effective?

We should have Multiple poll options!

==============================================================
Since the poll technology is already here, it would be GREAT if it were more functional.

It would be great if ADMINS could have additional polls not just 1, per post, maybe limit polls to like 1-10 polls per post.


============================================================
ALSO if we had a results poll that would tally the options that were selected, e.g.

POLL Question --- what is your favorite color?
Poll OPTIONS:
Red
Blue
Green
Yellow
Orange

POLL Question --- what is your second favorite color?
Red
Blue
Green
Yellow
Orange

THE new addition would be to have a results poll, that would allow you to add up the results of the two polls.
========================================================

Finally I think we should be able to weight the results.

Using the example above, we should be able to multiply the vote of the first poll by a number because it's worth more because it's the favorite.

Therefore each poll would have a multiplying factor to it, you would just enter a number to weight the first poll because it's more important than the second poll (the second favorites).

So if the results of the first poll were
1 Red
3 Blue
5 Green
5 Yellow
3 Orange

Weighted factor: 2

and the second poll was
2 Red
1 Blue
4 Green
5 Yellow
2 Orange

The results would be
4 Red
7 Blue
14 Green
15 Yellow
8 Orange

That way people's favorites would count more than their second favorites, and everyone could use polls MUCH more effectively.

I hope you all agree, that would make conversations much more interesting!

Take care,

Alexander

Well, if you think a little further into it... I think that you will see that it would actually LIMIT SPAM.

If someone has a topic they would like to talk about... and they have a few questions to ask people, but they only can have 1 poll per post.. The USER will have to create MANY topics to have MORE polls, but their only talking about one issue. To me, having to create many topics when you are talking about the same thing is spam... that's unnecessary for the forums, and we would save space, and be better organized if we allowed more polls/post and the additional functionalities.

thanks for your comments!

I vote no. Why can't you just make a new topic? And, who would make a topic like "What are some of your favourite things" and with the content
First poll: What is your favourite colour?
Vote!

Second poll: What is your favourite animal
etc.

=> No from me.
