Didn't theymos a while back make it so that Juniors (or up to some other low-level member) couldn't vote on polls due to obvious abuse? Or was that just for a poll he personally created about a particular issue? (might have been on a trust/merit system change). I just used my hilarious* account to test (which is a Newbie) to vote on one of my own polls and it allowed me to do so. I want to create a poll for something else but if Newbies and Juniors can vote on it then it will defeat the entire process.

As I have suggested in the past, allowing more poll/self-mod options to disallow certain ranks from voting or posting would be helpful.

AFAIK one can only join a poll if s/he is minimum a member Jr. Member. It was done to prevent abuse from a newly created account. I will update this post with some reference soon.

Previously, anyone could vote in polls. Now you must be at least a Jr. Member. This should make vote manipulation more difficult, though you should still not rely on forum polls for real accuracy.

This came in so suddenly. At least will there be an option to make a poll open to everyone in the future?

Why would you want to allow polls that can be easily manipulated?

So yes, if this information is not outdated then one have to be at-least Jr. Member to join a poll.


I just used my hilarious* account to test (which is a Newbie) to vote on one of my own polls and it allowed me to do so.
How it's possible? I have seen (somewhere) a Jr. Member was saying he can not see the options of a poll, he was also talking about images as well.


update:
PS: For some reason I can not vote on the poll. Is it another restriction for newbies?

I am sure we are missing something here.

Well that's what I thought but it doesn't seem to be the case. I just voted with the following account which is a Newbie: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?action=profile;u=1424594 hilarious*

Edit: Oh. Think I figured it out. I whitelisted the account before. That must have wiped the restriction.

Allowing Juniors to vote on the poll is still going to be useless though since it directly involves them. Someone with an army of indefinite Junior Members could sway the results and I don't want it to look like the community thinks it's a bad idea (though maybe theymos could use the abuse votes as honey-trap for Junior farmers  Grin).

I have updated my last post with a reference from an Jr. Member's quote. The post was made no long ago. If you can (the new account) then it's really confusing now LOL

Absolutely! IMO, the minimum rank should be member rank. It takes time and effort to become a Member considering current situation. This way we can eliminate this Jr. farmers.

I PMd theymos about the possibility of implementing or allowing it (even if it's just a one off). The poll would be useless if they're allowed to vote.
