  • How to change your vote.

    We have several polls on our forum and once in awhile members vote for the wrong answer by mistake. They then email me asking how to change their vote. Is this possible? I have searched and could not find anything.

    Thanks.

    There is no way to change your vote at this time.

          That would just be a duplicate of the JIRA that I already linked to.

            The date on it was a few years old, that's why I made a new one.

          Is this still outstanding as a feature request?

          If I am reading the http://tracker.vbulletin.com/browse/VBV-3059 item correctly it appears that functionality for changing your vote was added in 2012. Verified it worked again in 2014, But it doesn't appear to be an option that is working now?

          Are we able to change votes?
          Is this feature request open?

          Appreciate your feedback.

            Changing votes is not something that should be allowed barring exceptional circumstances. If you go to the ballot box and vote you can't change it later. A vote is a serious matter. Votes are how issues are decided. vBulletin's own tracker uses votes (among other criteria) to determine the priority of issues. This particular issue is seven years old and has all of three votes. It's simply not a high demand function. It makes absolutely no practical sense to allow users to flip-flop back and forth endlessly and aimlessly on votes.

            Having said that there are always going to be customers who have more need for a function or feature than other customers. The issue is still open to votes.

              It is a open issue. The current status of the issue is "Confirmed" and the projected version to resolve it is "BRB Future Release." As a Feature Request, it currently doesn't have enough votes to be acted on at this time. More votes would open it up for review. If a determination is made that the effort required provides enough benefit to the software as a whole, it will get implemented. Not all feature requests will get added to the software. Keep in mind, we're developing software for many different sites.

              Here is a list of Open Requests (anything not a bug) - https://tracker.vbulletin.com/vbulle...rch/6/search/1
