Using the Same Poll for Multiple Hubs?

    I have a set of hubs about the different Kingdom Hearts girls that were too long to be just one hub, so I've made them into about three (about to be four) different hubs.  There's a poll that I put on my first hub, asking which girl was their favorite, but it seems a bit skewed for me to just leave it on the first poll and not the others.  Of course, I could just use separate polls with the same question and answer choices and simply add up each result, but it would be much more efficient to simply use the same poll.  Is that impossible to do?

      There is no way to do this at this point in time. The best you could do is put three polls (one on each hub) asking the same question, there is literally no way to share the same poll across three hubs.

      Use the same poll. If they are part of the same hub then it's not impossible. You'd have to do some math because the results will not be shared through out the parts but that's usually not very difficult to deal with.

      Hope this helps.

        Unfortunately they are going to be on different hubs according to OP, so there is no way of the results being seen as an overall total across all 3+ hubs (frustrating if you want your readers to see the overall vote as opposed to just yourself doing the maths).

    You can create 3 polls (one for each hub). However, I am not sure this is the best approach -- I think your summary statistics will be bias. Correct me if I am wrong, let say your first reader votes 3  times (on three different hubs) and your second reader votes just once. If you pool all results together now, that is three against one which is bias. It should be 1 - 1.

    So if you want a more accurate result then create a central poll for all 3 hubs. Direct your readers to vote on the hub with the poll if you have to. Otherwise, create the 3+ polls.

      I agree with this suggestion. Since the actual article is broken into three hubs, I assume you have an end. I would use only one poll and place it on the final hub for the series. This way, the voters can accurately answer your poll question and you will not have to tally anything.

    Unless you need true data (generally not the purpose of our polls), I'd just put the same questions in separate polls in each hub.  The reader interaction is what's important, and polls engage readers.  You could always add a phrase in the caption asking if they've taken the poll yet.  I would not put it only in the last of the series, though.  You never know if someone only reads one hub out of a group, or reads all of them.
