How many answers can you give in a poll (test)

Let's see here ... looks like there's no way to vote for more than one, sorry.

Unfortunately, the way "they" set up the polls, with "radio buttons", you can only give one answer.

In order to allow all the possibilities for 3 choices, including AOTA and NOTA, you need 8 buttons. For 4 choices, it's 16 buttons. Powers of 2.

If you could find a "checkbox poll" (with square buttons, usually) you could give more than one answer, but I've never seen one of those on the internet.

You obviously never voted in the old WineLoversPage Voting Booth. :) That survey was built on our own homebrewed poll software, and I could set it up with either checkboxes or radio buttons and tell the software how many answers to allow. It was cool, but since both this forum and the Netscape forum have integrated poll functionality, I haven't been using it lately.

Right.

It's amazing how many obviously good and useful things get lost in the grail-quest for "good enough for everything".
