Polls and anonymous users
Open, NormalPublic

Description

We created a poll with AJAX Poll extension on the wiki, to see what character users like the most. But there is a slight problem with this. Apparently anonymous users are counted as one which is a problem and I am wondering how to fix that.
We also tried PollNY, but have the same problem aside from the a problem of not being able to create more than 10 options.

@Whatsu In ManageWiki, i see that anonymous users have the right to vote ajaxpoll-vote and pollny-vote. It would be to remove it and give this right only to the users,. or did I misunderstand?

The problem is that I want anonymous users to vote, but all anonymous users are counted as one so that is the problem.

This stinks of a problem with how it handles actors + anonymous users. I'm betting Upstream.

I looked at the tables and this doesn't seem as clear. I'm gonna need to do some deeper digging.

From what I can see, it treats poll_actor as unique but all IPs have poll_actor set to 0 so when poll_actor = 0 it needs to fallback to using poll_ip

I'll talk to them

It's stange that both AJAX Poll and PollNY haave the same problme, but I see that they are related with 1 author in common so I'm wondering if VoteNY also has the same problem since it has the same authors as PollNY.

it appears that voteny has the same problem as those two, not surprising
