Randomize PPV Picks Affecting Polls



Unfortunately we just found out that since the Randomize My PPV Picks feature was launched on the site, players who had chosen that option were having all questions on the site automatically randomized for them - which includes the user-defined questions (polls).

I think we've got that split out now properly so it will not affect the polls, but we will be monitoring it over the next few days to make sure.

It was also affecting the free-floating questions, which I'm sure some people enjoyed, but that will also be removed. The Randomize PPV Picks checkbox should only affect PPV picks so we're making sure that is all it will affect.

This explains why some people were having their poll votes changed - if you had the randomize feature turned on and had already participated in a poll, your vote may have changed when the script ran. Since the polls were not tied to a PPV, it didn't see you as "participated", so it was running it for you. But this shouldn't be happening anyway, so hopefully we won't see it again.

Thanks to Jimsta for bringing it up - I had thought there was an issue a few weeks ago when someone complained about a vote getting changed, but hadn't looked into it enough! Sorry for the troubles!

And I would like to thank word2k9 for bringing it up to me and making me look at it further.

I hope now users can get accurate representations of user opinion.

It would be nice if the polls that are still active could be fixed, expecially the FWF ones.

And the the others ones that need an opinion to make a decision.

Yeah I can probably do that tomorrow. It gets harder the further back I go to reconstruct them but I can definitely try!

Thanks cletus42o . Yeah the ones that are for fun don't matter too much but the ones the determine stuff are more important.
