[SUGGESTION] Improved Regional Poll Functionality

Postby Drew Durrnil » Thu May 19, 2022 6:00 pm

Regional polls are pretty limited, and can only carry out a limited amount of ideas. So, I suggest that polls should be improved by the following:
  • Allowing for there to be multiple polls at once in a region
    This would speed up polls or surveys where multiple polls have to be done simultaneously.
  • Doubling the maximum amount of poll options from 12 to 24
    This make polls with a greater amount of responses viable.
  • Allowing ROs to determine the number of responses per user for a poll (for example, a RO can set the poll so there can be a maximum of two voted options per user), similar to the forums
    Sometimes, polls need to have multiple responses per user (for example, which teams do you predict will have the highest records in the NBA?)
  • Allowing ROs to restrict voting on a poll for nations that are banned from that region
    It doesn't make sense to me that nations that are banned from joining a region and posting on the region's RMB are able to vote on polls.
  • Adding an option to restrict voting to region residents and residents of one of the region's embassies.
    If this functionality exists in RMBs, then why isn't it availiable for polls?
  • Making links in poll descriptions function
    This would make it much easier to provide background for a poll, especially for an election poll (to provide election guidelines).
  • Allowing ROs to hide poll responses
    This can be useful in elections, as the vote counts of a candidate can not sway your decision in voting with poll responses turned off.

I'd rather have the ability to not publicly show who voted for what on a poll (you can only see it if you're a Comms RO). That way you can have secret ballots gameside. Of course, you could also use tgs.

A poll overhaul is very much a project most people will appreciate. I also suggest being able to colored poll text. All sorts of uses out of that I can't even think of.

We should be able to vote more than once (ie how endorsements work).

Yes let poll makers choose between checkboxes and radio buttons.
