I know I can't vote, but is there a way to see the result of a pool?

I've been trying for a while, never found a way to do so.

Thanks!

First, apologies, forgot to mention that this post was split off from this topic... http://www.coderanch.com/t/646998/md/professionals-Vegetarian-Vegan

And this leads to two questions...


The first one is, of course, how to see the results of a poll when a greenhorn is unable to vote?

The second one is ... I understand that only ranch hands (and higher) can vote, but doesn't the voting also depends on cows? In this case, the OP (whose is a greenhorn) already has a cow. Shouldn't voting be allowed?

Henry


PS... Have another cow for pointing this out..

Felipe,
Congrats on finding an edge case in the logic. The logic was supposed to be:
- if not logged in or greenhorn, start with no votes
- if rancher, start with one vote
- additional vote per cow

When testing, I missed the case for a greenhorn with cows. I'v fixed that and it will be in the deployment this weekend.

One of the features of cow polls is that you can't see the results without voting. So I've changed the message to indicate that one needs more posts to view as well (if a greenhorn without cows).

Thanks for pointing this out!

I thought I was missing something so I didn't create a new topic. Thanks for clarifying the problem!

Thanks for fixing the issue Jeanne! I'll try it out on Monday to see it working
