The polls system on Patreon is one of the best offered on posts due to the simplicity and built in security.
However, the two features listed below would make Patreon’s poll system definitively the best.
- Blind vote count - If Patrons can see the count/percentage of votes an option has, it influences the result in a negative fashion.
- Weighted vote count - Giving the option to vote for single/multiple choices alone isn’t sufficient. Having the option to pick 1st/2nd/3rd choices with a value we choose would be a game changer.
The first feature alone would make plenty of Patreon accounts ecstatic, many of whom have resorted to elaborate and finicky website integration that frequently bugs out due to the monthly cycle of pledges.
PLEASE Patreon, take the necessary steps to at least bring the first listed feature to polls ASAP.
Thank you and best regards,
