pole problem


Hi everyone, got a question here. I made a pole on my board and when I go to vote it keeps saying this:

You must be a member of this board in order to vote on polls.

am I not a member if I own the board emoticon

thank you,
BigB

Re: pole problem


Hi, B! emoticon

This might sound weird, but...

If your board has been private since the very beginning, it actually is possible that you might not be a member of your own board. The owner will never see an application or have to enter a password in order to gain access, so the only membership gaining method a board owner can meet is the "Posting one message" requirement on an open board.

You're able to access the board and post there because you're the owner, but when a poll is set to allow votes from members only, it will check the member list to see if the person trying to vote is on that list. If you're not on the member list, the polling feature doesn't know it should let you vote.

I will ask Thor if he will change this. I think it would be best to have the owner of a board automatically added to the board's member list at the moment of its creation, and if the board is transferred to someone who isn't already a member, have that person added to the member list at the time the board is transferred.

For now, you can manually add yourself to your board's member list.

Sorry for the confusion. emoticon

Thanks anyway,

Re: pole problem


Hi B,

I looked at the member lists of both boards you own, and couldn't find you listed on either one.

When someone creates a poll, the first 3 options are:

     Only board members can vote? [x]
     Results viewable without vouching? [x]
     Results viewable after vouching? [x]

If that first box is un-checked, any Runboard member can vote, but if it's checked, you have to be on that board's member list. Could it be that the box was always un-checked for the other polls you voted in?

Re:


Lisa, I am listed on there, but it's not until June 7, 2009, 11:39 and I know that is wrong. I think I started this board in 2003-04. I'm not really concerned about it now, the voting thing, but why would it have me listed in 2009?? now that's weird. This is probably the only 3rd time I created a voters thingy so no worries here.

thanks anyway,
BigB

Re: pole problem


I wish I knew, B. If you tell me which board (feel free to PM me, if you don't want others to know about it), and confirm that it's your BIGB account or let me know which account it is, I might be able to figure out what happened.
