Anyone had the experience where you can no longer access a poll, but you see other people's responses in Notifications?

It's cause the poll has closed due to more than 100 votes. If you get the SoH extended pack or whatever, it increases the number of votes your question is allowed. I agree, it's irritating, especially when in the middle of a convo.

It's bothersome. Specifically when you can't remember who created the question.

Ummm I'm not sure... I don't think so.

Hmm. I am on the website and cannot find the poll. Tony needs to share it.

What poll is it? Who posted it? And I'm not sure what you mean by "Tony needs to share it."

Hmm. I can't remember who originated the poll. Damn.

I was hoping that if Tony shared it, it would go live again.

It's the poll about a society based on science or religion.

Oh, right. The one where I was tangling very uncomfortably with Tony. I think we've gotten ourselves untangled now, although my last reply was posted after the poll was closed. That was Daddyman's poll. And it should be available on the web site...

And yes, it is. Search for Daddyman on the web site & you should find it.

No, a poll can't be shared after it's closed. I believe Tony could re-open it, but if he did that, then many people with closed polls would be clamoring for equal treatment.

Also, when a poll is shared by Tony, it still is subject to the vote cap of the person who created it.

I'm just wishing everyone will save their pennies (two cups of coffee a month, folks!) & update, although I know that's not at all easy for some.

You can still access the poll through the website and post responses, but not access them through the apps.

How do I do this? I am on the website and the poll is still gone.

It's frustrating when I still see the responses...

Follow the in app link to your own profile (or whoever made the poll). Should be in list of polls.

Follow the "published questions" link to be specific.

I know exactly what you're referring to, and it's due to the fact that the poll closed right after that user posted their comments. The poll reached the 100 vote limit. Nice points, cite.

Just so you know - the upcoming 3.0 update will solve this problem. It keeps all user polls accessible via the app.

MrL, while it's true that polls are still in the app, the link from the notification doesn't work. At least not so far. I have listed it to Tony, but not sure if it can be changed.

Yes, apologies for the lack of clarity.

No problem, just for info :-)
