We have multi-choice polls now.


Precursor to the return of 4 ways? Now you can choose your first and second favorite!
Advokaiser picked Cloud in Guru and rained on my bracket.
At least I finished 20th overall!

The GameFAQs unemployment rate is approximately 12.5% according to yesterday's Poll of the Day. That's over three times the US unemployment rate, even for the age group of 25-34 years. I'm guessing the reason for that is that many gamers are lazy and/or anti-social. That would limit friends and networking, limiting employment opportunities.
Congrats to Advokaiser on pwning me in CBX!

I was wrong, they just have a different design. But the guy quoted my post before I deleted it.

Yeah, different design, no additional features other than being able to see what you already voted for from the front page.

I wouldn't rule out the possibility of multi-select polls being possible. However, those kinds of polls would be extremely rare if Allen ever chose to run multi-select polls. There are very few poll ideas that would be suitable for a multi-select poll. One possible idea for a multi-select poll could ask you which "numbered" Final Fantasy games you have played (you'd be allowed to select multiple games, one for each game you've played). The main problem with multi-select polls would be making it clear to visitors that they can select multiple options if they want. This requires a short message below the poll stating something to the effect of "This is a multi-select poll - you may select more than one option".

I like the look of the new polls, and being able to tell at a glance you've already voted is wonderful.

But I can't get down with the X through my choice, looks too much like a crossout. I'd like to see that switched to a check mark.

Advo bested even The Show hosts in 2018, yowza!

I was also quite a bit surprised that the Full-Time Work option got almost 58%. At least in the US, Obamacare killed off a lot of full-time jobs due to businesses being required to provide health insurance to their employees if they have at least 50 full-time workers. Retail jobs were most affected by this employer mandate, while minimum wage jobs were disproportionally affected by the mandate. As a result, many people were stuck with part-time jobs, so I thought this would have had some effect on the site's American userbase voting in this poll. Guess not.

Of course, the employer mandate doesn't apply to businesses with less than 50 full-time employees, which would mostly apply to small businesses. So it could still be possible for someone to have a full-time job in the US despite being paid at or just slightly above the minimum wage.

The Full-Time Work option getting almost 58% in this poll means that we have a large enough userbase to support an After Work Vote. Generally speaking, only full-time workers would be expected to contribute towards an After Work Vote. Part-time workers usually don't work enough hours each day to be faced with a situation where they have to wait until getting home from work to vote in the poll, though it could be possible with an 8+ hour work day.

It shows up as a check mark when you're actually voting.
