No they are not. Do they have to be?

Ah, you've discovered a bug! Thanks Laura Bento!

It looks like if non-members look at the poll at the moment, they just see results instead of the proper voting form. If you're a member and you log in, you get the view where you can vote in the poll. I'll see if/how to fix this so that everyone gets the voting form until they've either voted or the poll is closed -- my apologies (and thanks for discovering this!!!). In the meantime, just tell your friends and family members to register on the board, and they'll be able to vote for you. :D



No problem Biggie! Glad I was able to help. ;)

Biggie and I are not allowed to participate in the bento of the month club. But biggie made a bento for her son and wanted to share it so it's in the list.

Just to clarify, what I'd like to change about the polls would be just the display of the voting form to everyone. If a non-member tries to actually vote, though, I'd like it to take them to a board registration screen first before allowing the vote.

What's wrong with giving people pity votes? Shouldn't people vote how they feel (even if it's just pity/wanting to vote for the best one that isn't theirs?)

What? IMO you shouldn't vote for other people just because you feel bad or feel sorry for them! Vote for what you think is best.

Would you want to win out of pity or would you want to win for your hard work?

My personal opinion? Bringing people to the board just to vote for you turns it into a popularity contest. Not to be ugly, but that's my feeling on the matter. *dodges whatever gets thrown at her*
