I’m sure you may have noticed that the polls are ending somewhat earlier than expected. Let me explain why.
The original polling software that was part of WordPress was Poll Daddy. Last year, it changed over to Crowd Signal (which apparently bought out Poll Daddy). Crowd Signal is still free but has a limit of 2500 responses. We went into this poll with about 2200 responses remaining.
As soon as I can comfortably declare a winner, I’ve been doing so in an effort to postpone having to conduct the poll in a different fashion.
In a pinch, we can return to the method James first employed – list your vote in the comments and I would have to go through the section to tabulate votes.
I have spent a considerable amount of time testing many free polling software packages. Most have a low limit before you have to buy. I had decided to try Survey Monkey then I saw that MLBTR used it for a recent poll. The problem with it is that unless purchased, I can only provide a link that you’ll have to use to get to the poll.
Why don’t I just purchase it (or some other application)? Well, they are a bit pricey to just use once a year. And, I don’t have purchasing authority. The Phuture Phillies account is still in James’ name and he renews it each year. (Thank you, James!)
So, that explains the quick trigger on these polls.
