They should've left the voting on your own poll feature, I like voting on my own polls along with everyone.. -__-
They could've just added this new feature while still giving us the option, this is unfair in my opinion.

I agree. I don't see how they couldn't have just had both the ability to vote, and the ability to see the results from before you voted.

I agree with you. DeviantART should keep the feature where the polls are now visible after being submitted, but they should bring back the voting your own poll feature.

That's a great change but in some polls I would actually like to be able to vote myself anyway. Couldn't you add an option so you can still choose that?

How about that. Making changes people actually ask for gets a positive reaction from the community!

Critique aside, it's nice to see this. I hear rather than not needing to vote, owners can't vote at all anymore so it doesn't sound like a perfect solution but a rare step in the right direction.

Wow. Aside from the Scheduled Posting, this is one of the more useful updates dA has given us in years. Y'all are finally fixing things that were ACTUALLY broken...instead of things that didn't need fixing ( *cough* keywordsintovisiblehashtags *ahem* ).

Ohh so that's why the poll results just magically appeared on my latest poll. So does the results get posted after a specific percentage is reached or a specific amount of votes?

Premium members can make a poll on their page, where they can ask people questions and they can vote on it. This new feature is saying that you don't have to vote on a poll that you made yourself.
