Opinion Polls Frequently Asked Questions or FAQ
What are Opinion Polls?
Opinion Polls are a series of questions about various topics that users get to vote on. The votes are tabulated and then given out on
Can I vote more than once in these opinion polls?
No. When you initially vote, your IP Address is stored in a file pertaining to a particular poll. If you try to vote more than once, your IP Address is found in this file. You will then get an error message stating that you have already voted in this poll.
I never voted in a particular poll but I still got an error message saying that I had already voted.
If you are in an office or home environment where many computers are networked, it is possible that all of the computers in that environment are configured such that they appear to be coming from the same IP Address. If this happens, try voting on another computer on a different network or try voting on your smart phone (Just be sure to turn off Wi-Fi or you may end up on the same network).
Why do you close certain opinion polls after a period of time?
We close opinion polls after a certain period of time (usually after about 4-8 weeks) in order to have new, fresh questions for users, to guard against the poll being spammed or 'run up' by users as well as for general security reasons.
How does the comments area of this poll app work?
Users can add comments when voting on polls. You can either clarify a yes/no poll vote, add an option that would be under the other/no opinion area or comment on the poll itself. You can only add a comment while voting and not after the fact. You are limited to 140 characters. And please keep it clean or else you will be prevented from voting. Accumulated comments will show up on the voting results screen. You do not have to add a comment when voting in a particular poll.
