In progress Fix The Poll Bug

Post by ? on October 22nd 2012, 12:39 am

Having more options than what I want ruins the poll. Follow these steps to see the glitch:

1. Go to a suggestions forum

2. Click "NEW TOPIC"

3. Enter the title

4. Type something under the title

5. Enter the poll question

6. Type two poll options

7. Run poll for 0 days or leave it blank

8. Turn on multiple choice

9. Click "Yes" for vote cancelling

10. Click Send

11. Delete the post

12. Repeat steps 2 to 10 and enter the exact same information

13. Look at the poll choices

Sorry, but I do not understand the issue.

There are multiple choice options from the previous topic that is added to the new poll (excess alternatives).

So a suggestion you create has somehow got more choices in the poll then you added?

All of the options from the deleted post are included into the new poll of the new topic (must be the confusion of the old and new post if both are identical).

I removed at least one of my topics because there were plenty of options. If I post it, you may believe that I deliberately added more alternatives. Please check the issue yourself and delete the topic afterwards if you find that there are excess choices. Also, voters would think "Why so many alternatives?". I do not want them to decide which one to vote out of at least 4 options.

Let me see if I understand this issue.

1. You create a poll and suggestion topic.

2. You deleted it.

3. Create a new one which somehow included the old and new poll choices.

Did you delete the all thread or just the poll?

Please post the link to the thread where this has occurred. Or have you deleted the new one, too?

My new post was removed. I fear that plenty of choices would cause a warning from another moderator besides you (because you understand the problem).

An issue such as this is improbable on my forums. In addition, why would I suggest to my own forums if I am the creator of them (I could use the Administrative Control Panel)?

No. I mean has this issue occurred with any polls you added to your forum?

I would not suggest to my forums if I have the ability to change them (have not added polls to the forums of mine). Do you want me to attempt it?

It does not have to be a suggestion poll. I mean has this happened when you created any kind of poll on your forum?

Obviously, making a poll without deleting the topic results in the poll functioning as usual. If producing a poll caused the bug explained above, then I would not be the only one to notice it.
