Hi everyone; This is my first post so be gentle.LOL
I recently put a poll on my hub and it doesn't seem to keep running tabs;it stops after one or two people voted.How do I fix this so it continues to let people vote ?
It might just be the server lagging. I can't be sure though because polls are new to me.
whay I mean is;it gives a total;I want it to continue until I stop it.
Well, as I just implied, when someone votes the vote goes to a script on Hubpages servers. All votes go there, if there is more votes then the server can handle they pile up and take time to complete. This pileup is called: Lagging OR slowing down speed of a computer operation. If the problem doesn't fix itself in a day then I think you should get it looked into further.
There shouldn't be any lag, but each signed in user or ip address gets just 1 vote. If you make any changes to your poll question or answers it will reset as well.
That was what I was also pondering, I was sure every user\ip only gets one vote (if you where having yourself vote or friends from your computer) that might likely be the problem.
And thanks Paul, I know there shouldn't be lag, there never should be lag in anything if you think about it . I was just looking for a rational answer to the problem.
hey thanks for your help.I guess I'm impatient. I'll wait and see
