Hello,

I wondered if it might be possible to provide some means of notifying ProZ members whether their suggested polls have been accepted or not? I made a light-hearted suggestion ages ago and have heard nothing since then. I think it just said it would be added to the list if accepted. I've no idea how long the backlog of suggestions is (maybe it could tell you that as well, as in answer phone messages - you are 15th in the queue or whatever!) It would be anoying to miss a poll that you'd suggested because you were on holiday and didn't realise it had reached the top of the list at last! That's assuming it was accepted in the first place, of course...

I'm sure I'm not the only one to have found some of the recent polls very "dry" to say the least, so a little more variety would be good too. I know someone raised a poll a few weeks ago about having more "fun" questions and I think the majority vote was for "Yes, let's do it" - so can we?!! Please??!!

Notification when poll is being run Mar 21, 2007

Hi Claire,

From what I can remember of polls I have suggested myself, you are not informed if a poll is approved but you are sent an email when a poll you have suggested is being run on the site. That way you won't miss it!

Cheers,

Becky.

Hullo Claire and Becky,
I also suggested a poll some months ago, but it hasn't appeared yet - unless I missed it when I was away on holiday - and it was about holidays!
All the best,
Jenny.

Email notification is sent Mar 21, 2007

Rebecca is right, when a poll you suggested is published, you receive an automatic email notification.

Polls are made active for about a day, and a bit longer on weekends, so about 6 polls are published per week. Since more than 6 suggestions are received per week, it is unfortunalely not possible to publish all the received suggestions.

Kind regards,
Enrique

Hmmm Mar 21, 2007

Hi Enrique,

So an e-mail notification is sent out at the same time as the poll? Presumably that works like the "You are featured" slot, on which I have never yet managed to see myself - they always seem to go out in the middle of the night or when I'm out! Not that that matters particularly, but it would be nice to know if your poll had been accepted or not and then to actually see people's answers - which you wouldn't if you were away on holiday when it came out. At least if you knew it had been accepted, you could look out for it.

Claire

Past feature polls Mar 21, 2007

Hello,

If it happens you're out or just can't see the poll when it's running, you can always consult the past feature polls by clicking on Community>Quick poll (http://www.proz.com/polls)

Regards,
Monika
