Oh noez, the annoyance of not being able to see the poll results if you don't vote... That alone makes me want to ninja-vote it, but I didn't (at least not this time ^^ ssshhh yes, i plead guilty)Mike, please, give those "only vote if you ..." polls an extra answer next time: "I'm do not meet the requirements, but I just want to see the result so far". That'll also help to ensure the results stay representative, excluding those from people who didn't withstand the temptation of data.On a side note: the 4 polls could have been replaced by a single one: (albeit - I have to admit - a bit messy)Have you transferred a character between factions?* No, I haven't transferred and I don't plan to do so in Cataclysm either.* No, I haven't transferred yet, but I plan to when Cataclysm comes out.* Yes, I've transferred my Alliance character to Undead* Yes, I've transferred my Alliance character to Blood Elfetc.* Yes, I've transferred my Horde character to Humanetc.- all other statistics can be readily determined from the results of this poll- it doesn't cover people who've made multiple transfers, but neither do the 4 original polls; a tick-box poll that allows more than one answer would fix that though

If you just hit vote without choosing an answer, you can see the results and it shouldn't affect the poll.As for combining them all into one, frankly, I plan to use the different polls as a kind of guidance on how closely you're all following directions -- the sum of the two bottom results should add up to the number of people who answered the first question negatively, for example, if everything is going to plan.Also, I'm a writer, not a pollster, so if I made a mistake in putting this together or if there's a better way to do it, that's my bad. This is what we're using.

Right-o... Don't select anything and hit vote... Why didn't I think of that? >.> Thanks for pointing out my failure to the system and no offense intended ofc, it just occurred to me.And well ye lacking the raw statistical power compared to Blizzard data, polls are ofc also for the fun of it.

Actually, now it looks like that might cause you to vote the first choice. Oh well. If there's a big discrepancy in the first choices, I'll just attribute it to "vote-peeking" and skim it off as best I can. You're right: there should be an easy way to see results without voting.

I did the no click an answer but yes click the vote button and it looked like I voted for every option. Since I voted quickly when I hit vote all the answers only had 1 vote. as in "If you went from Horde to Alliance, what race (you had to pick one associated with your class) did you become?" all the races were 1.
