Either Michio or Clarissa, but I'm not entirely sure. Maybe both.

On a more serious note, he will, without a doubt, be playing Ashford.

Hmmm... I don't see him as Ashford... I would guess either Winston Duarte or Nathan Smith, but I can't decide, so I didn't vote.

Ok.  I'm not sure how but this one got cleared too.

These Wikia forum polls kind of suck.

LOL.

You edited the post, didn't you? Any edit, as far as I know, reverts the poll back to its default state (0 votes).

I didn't do it this time.

I'm going need to use a better polling feature.  It's too easy to lose poll results with this one.

There were twenty votes on Ashford versus only as many as one or two on any other option though.

They do suck, but they suck less, if you know some of the tricks.

A) When you make a poll, try to make it as perfect as possible on the first go round. Editing it resets it.

B) Wikitext and HTML formatting don't work inside a poll.

C) Don't edit a poll after you make it. Just make a new one and tell people about the old one.

D) Put the poll on a separate page like a subpage of Template:Poll and then transclude that page ({{Poll/newpoll}}) to where you want to show it. If you edit a page or post with a poll it will reset it.

I tried all that.  I figured out all that but it still didn't prevent it from reseting and, this last time, I don't know why.


They suck less but still suck more than I imagined when I tried it the first time.  I figured out all you said and only now criticized.

Help:Poll should have all the info above, but most of Fandom's help pages suck alot.

i noticed.

For all the wiki stuff itself, you're left reading terse documentation on MediaWiki which usually means insufficient examples and have to double-check forums extensively and wonder whether it works on Fandom.

UI stuff on Fandom is very bare bones. I'm alway searching for something just one more notch lower-level technical.

For polls, I'm interested in finding an integration with Google Forms such that all the polls are hosted there and just the UI is handled here. I suppose something like survey monkey might work too. That way, the data doesn't reset upon any edit or sneeze or gust of breeze.

Not sure how this is going to be handled if they're forcing us over to "Discussions"

You might want to also try some of the other poll extensions seen at Special:Version:

  • The crappy one is AjaxPoll which at least is documented at Help:Poll.
  • PollDaddy allows embedding of Polldaddy.com polls and has minimal documentation at Extension:PollDaddy at MediaWiki.org.
  • PollSnack presumably works similarly to PollDaddy with Pollsnack.com, but I couldn't find any documentation.

I like none of them, but at least AjaxPoll is easy and doesn't require you sign up to some other site to use.
