Why Do Polls Reset Sometimes After I've Already Made My Pick?

[ Edited ]
12 replies 111 views Edited Nov 30, 2012

I've seen this happen 2 or 3 times now. I vote, then a day or so later when I glance at the poll, I see no top answer but I do see the vote option once again. In this case it was for the Lockwood Supermodel Poses. Since I figured it didn't like my answer of Neutral, I lowered it to Very Dissatisfied to see if that would stick. So far so good.

 

Top speculative guess gets a pat on the back. I guess that's all we have.

its a conspiracy to remove bad votes so only "satisfied" and "very satisfied" votes count.

Hmmm, perhaps. But then I always just figured I must have been too generous and so I grade lower. That seems to work.

Let's see what the other contestants say.

I liked your first answer better so I'll go with that.

But...but the polls sometimes don't like my 1st answer so I feel compelled to change it. It's ok...only about 30 people vote every week anyway. That means mine only counts for 3.33%. Although sometimes I think it counts both votes so that would be 6.66%. Evil huh?
