    Default Voters voting twice?

    http://forum.caithness.org/showthread.php?t=6256

    Is there a way to vote twice?
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    Rheghead, did you try? Did you go through the list and see if people had their names recorded twice?

    Yes, there is someone who has voted twice.

    Depends on whether the poll originator has opted for allowing multiple votes.
    It is an option just as showing who voted for what is...

    Forgive me madpict, but even with multiple votes, it should be impossible to vote for the same option twice, no?

    For the same choice - no. But obviously someone did. May have been a bug? If the person submitted their vote and the forum response got 'hung up' and they hit the vote button again they may have fooled it - similar to when you submit a post and the forum is slow to acknowledge your post being submitted and you hit the send button again results in a duplicate post.

    That is really strange Rheghead. Did you try pm'ing the poster and asking them?

    could it maybe be a cross with an impatient user and site / connection lag? Click click click click "it's not doing anything" syndrome (I have a relative who operates websites like that LOL)

    How do we use spell check on the org?

    I had it on my old system, but now that the computer experts have put firefox into my laptop I cannot find any spell check programs.

    Right click on the text entry box and select "Spell Check This Field" - should carry it out as you type.
