I can't see any poll result on this forum ... is it normal ?
Title: Re: SMSC Poll: May - Downton
Post by: vilvoh on May 19, 2010, 03:56:12 PM
Yes, the results are shown when the poll has expired. It's better for reducing the influence of the most voted options. If you see that a option is the most voted, unconsciously you can think that it's the best option and vote for it, specially if the difference of votes with the rest is large. We also want to keep the suspense untill the end...  ;D

I think it's the feeling of being victorious.

Hard choice, BUT, I voted. Expect mine relating to anything modern.
