Pictures glitch up the poll.
« on: April 04, 2012, 03:40:10 pm »
Having a poll with usernames work perfectly no matter if there may be up to 60 usernames on the poll at any given time and you been editing the same poll for over 10+ matches.

Yet when I did a "Forum's Favorite Pokemon" tournament I decided to use pictures to make things easier. After a single use the poll software become useless. The poll like to switch around and in some cases even delete entries. Editing the poll simply can't be done if pictures are involved. I of course try it again to make sure it wasn't a random glitch. This glitch can be done again and again on command.

So far after every match I had to delete the old poll thread and replace it with a new one just to end up deleting that the next day.

Is there something I not aware of when it come to using image tags in a poll?

I would give a forum link but honestly this isn't my forum. I just the next highest rank possible. The forum don't have any special features or codes. The theme itself is even the default. The true owner quit a while back and no one is willing to move to a new forum.

Here an example:



This poll don't glitch up as I don't use pictures but as you can see the order of the entries is very importation. The tags that I use for my picture polls would be

Code: [Select]
[hr] & [img]url here[/img]

I not necessary looking for a forum patch to fix this. I simply want to know what causing it so I know how to prevent it from happening.

I found out that even though text only polls can take more edits, even they do have a limit.



Left is the glitch in action while the right is what I wanted (by making a completely new thread).

Zelkova vs. gratefulbliss & Bossmaker vs. yaomon17 were moved by me when I created the new poll. (Was doing a rematch which is funny because it was cause by this glitch. I decided the rematches would look better at the bottom.)

Anyway regardless I know for a fact I type it up correctly.

The user gameguy11 completely disappear and VincentStudios somehow got bump down. When doing massive polls a single deletion or switch can be left unnoticed.

Anyway I really enjoying the support from this forum so far.  ::) Seem like you guys died some since the last time I came on, did Agent Moose died or something? If you guys not going to give support then I could get the owner to switch to vbulletin, I said he quit. I said nothing about him being dead.  :(
