Comment about Polls

It seems to me the 'No Comment/Not Applicable/Don't Own but show me the results anyway' comments skew the results. Would it be possible to have those replies not count in the percentages?

Re: Comment about Polls

I don't know about purely "Don't Own" I think that's applicable in the ladder poll for example, provided you do own a SMB but don't have a ladder.

Any poll option for show me the results is going to be skewed. What you want is for people to use (A) in the diagram:


Because (B) doesn't look any different than any of the (C) to the system... there is no "Don't count this option" in setting up the polls, because to have that option not count you simply don't put it in... and that's up to the author, although I think I can edit the options if the author wants me to.

(B) and (A) do the same thing (show results) but (B) is also counted as an answer.

Hope that helps.

Re: Comment about Polls

Did you know that 86% of statistics where made up on the spot?

Feel free for any of the numerous statistical polls I posted. If -I- go edit them, it resets the poll.

Ah, then it probably does so for me. I'd have to do some database edits which will have to go on the "sometime..." list
