IS IT POSSIBLE TO REOPEN POLLS???
« on: December 22, 2007, 04:43:01 »
I've noticed a lot of old threads being brought back to life lately with polls that have already been closed.

Is there a way to either:
1.) reopen the closed polls
2.) even better have an ongoing poll that would automatically update itself if someone voted?? 
3.) or should people just start a whole new thread with the same topic if a poll has already been closed??

Not sure if the 2nd suggestion is even possible, but it would be nice to see some results as people are still interested in past topics.

Anyway, just a thought....

Thanks in advance!

I agree with you LuvURobert...  :smth038

Why don't you re-open this polls? There are a lot of new people here and while we are waiting for the new album could be a good idea review all albums and share new votes... Thanks!  :smth023

P.S. Viva The Cure!!  :rocker

i've really no idea how to do that, re-open any closed polls - or if it even can be done anymore.  :smth017
maybe david knows... :?:

It all depends of the person who created the poll. For example, some people create a poll where anyone can vote all the time, and some people might create the poll just for one or two weeks. It all depends.

Anyway, yes, it's possible to "re-open" polls. Anyone of the admins or mods can do it (just edit the poll and change the settings). Which poll would you like to be re-open?

all of the album polls, plus the new re-mastered/deluxe editions... I think they have to be seperate, because they are entirely different, as far as releases go.. that then means a seperate poll for the:
1. ORIGINAL, and
2.THE DELUXE/RE-MASTERED
3.favourite video poll
etc.. if it is possible..?? :smth023

I am the guilty one for re-opening of previously closed topics/polls..  :smth100
I have used the search-control and raked through previously posted topics, so as to not repeat topics, so maybe time for an update?  ;)

Lara, I re-opened all the polls concerning the albums (hope I didnt forget some). If there are not polls for "Deluxe" albums you would have to create a new poll. However, in my personal view, I think it would be enough to let just the album polls and not create new polls for EACH deluxe relase. Maybe would be enough just to open a single poll asking what deluxe edition the people like it most...

I forgot to reopen this poll or this poll does not exist?
If it does not exist, you can create it. If I forgot to reopen it, can you point me to the address where this poll is located?

I see!

Yes, 17 seconds is not there, hence, you can create a new poll about that in the albums board, I will add a link to that page later :smth023
