Using the Like functionality as polls

Post by Null » May 17th, 2021, 8:44 am

We can use the newly introduced "like" functionality for voting in POTY
Just a suggestion, I haven't voted in POTY so I assume there are people who are more interested and actually know what they are doing.

Also is the poll implemented by an extension? Cause in that case we can replace it with a better poll extension.

Heh, I think we might actually just stick with the current voting method, since the alternative is to make probably thirty-odd separate posts in a voting thread, and click them or not-click them one by one.

Even then, that would only give the choice of zero stars or one star, where the current standard is a choice of zero to three stars.

The idea might work okay for yes/no types of polls, though!
