Topic: pun_poll discussion

We would like to know your opinion regarding some questions of pun_poll development. Today, we have discussed the behavior of this extension in case of voting editing. We have had several options about what to do when a user wants to edit a question/answer or add/remove an answer:
1)  clear voting results, showing an alert, and start the voting over again. But in this case if a user finds a misprint in a voting, the voting results will be lost. So we have another option:
2) the user should contact with an administrator and the admin will fix the voting. In this case the user can only remove voting results at the edit page.

It will be interesting to hear your opinion and suggestions about this.

Re: pun_poll discussion

Notice: Undefined index: preview_push in /home/supermilkychild/public_html/forum/post.php(321) : eval()'d code on line 12

edit:
its not a big issue anyway, the poll is worked fine. i just want to let you know!

Re: pun_poll discussion

Some thoughts:
-If a user edit a poll it should be wrote somewhere on it to avoid any confusion (just like the last edited on messages).
-If a user only change a question then results shouldn't be flushed or it should be an option (I'm assuming most edits will be for typos).
-If a user adds/removes questions then the results should be automatically flushed, someone may find the new choice more accurate and wish to change his vote. In such a case a notice should be available in thread's title to let ppl who already read the subject that poll has been reset.
-Not a fan of the idea that you must ask the administrator for a "normal behaviour".

An unsafe assumption.  The poll questions could be swapped to cheat the results.  A simple sollution: compare the original string with the new one.  It doesn't have to be a complicated comparison, just tokenize both strings by whitespace and compare the words; and allow the administrator to set an integer value for "maximum word change in poll question edits".

The most complicated aspect of that is short questions in polls.  Disregard the "maximum word" threshold when the original string's word-count is below the "maximum" integer.

Re: pun_poll discussion

I have now EasyPoll. I am considering to upgrade PunBB to 1.3 but I am not sure if the old polls will be migrated as well?

Re: pun_poll discussion

No, polls will not be migrated. We are going to begin working on the converting tool after the New Year's holidays.

Btw can the poll be a little fancier with more options that the previous version ?

Re: pun_poll discussion

Re: pun_poll discussion

Hm, I've got 1.0.3 poll extension and there's a problem with rights management. It's impossible to edit Voting permission field at Administration » Users » Groups » Edit existing group using admin interface. And even if change this valie in the DB directly, users still see polling fields during topic creation or altering... Please advise, what the problem is? Forum: http://forum.autoinscale.com/

Update: just has upgraded to 1.0.4, but nothing changed sad

It has appeared in repository for more convenient testing by our employees. You have also tested it - I think this method of testing should help us to avoid possible bugs. Thank you for posting and for your bug reports smile
