polls for unregistered users ?

Post by CTZn » Sat Jul 23, 2011 6:36 pm

Hi fused, thanks for fixing polls in the first place !

Could unregistered users vote in polls ? It appears that most exporters users aren't registered to the forum but they may be keen to vote on occasions, their experience is also of interest.

Hey,

I'm looking into it now.

Depending on how it works I will not allow it, tho, as it could be used to change the outcome of polls quite easily.

Apparently, there is nothing stopping guests from voting on a poll as often as they want.

So, no, won't allow that. :)

But you know what ? Concerning the Maya forum the profit/risk ratio is clearly a parameter I would make use of. I mean that I don't see much of a problem in accepting that risk.

Nothing is preventing guests to download MtI as many times as they want, still that figures the number (MtI was attached to the server recently). 80 clicks for 3.x.3a, that's about 60 users. I'd be glad to hear from a couple more.

Could you please allow guest voting for the Maya forum alone ? Say, it's a test with potential. Being aware makes the difference ;)

edit: also we can discute the issues with registered Maya users, and that shall take precedence.
