Can we please have the option to reverse the sort for voting polls?  As it stands now, the oldest voting poll is at the top of the page and the newest at the bottom.  I would like to have the newest voting poll be listed at the top of the page.

Thank you!!!

I would like the polls to be able to be shown with the Poll soonest to expire at the top.  I am not sure what the polls actually sort on now that Ithink about it...

Is it based on when the poll was entered?  If so I think it would be better to have sort based on Poll END date ...

Yes, it sorts by when it was entered in ascending order (first one ever entered at the top).  We would like to see the one most recently entered at the top.  Naturally, like any other change requested here, if there's ever the opportunity to make a new “feature” selectable/configurable, that's much more desire.  No sense forcing someone into having things the way I want them.  Hehe.  FYI: I did submit this via a support ticket.

/agree

I would also like to have the option to be able to sort the polls.  Maybe if we could get the option of “Display Order” like we do the content on the pages that would work for everyone.  This way we could put the polls in the order in which we want them.

I know that I would like this for several reasons.  We tend to have alot of polls.  We allow our members to submit polls they would like feedback on.  So I would like to be able to select the “Display Order” so that I can the important polls at the top and the member polls at the bottom.

*crosses fingers that this is possible*

Right now they're ordered by close date, the most recent to close first.

I'm confused by some semantics.  The current sort shows my polls sorted with the first poll I ever posted at the top and the most recent poll I've posted at the bottom.  Shouldn't the most recent one be at the top?  That's the sort ability I'm asking for.  Let the member scroll down if they want to see something old, but I want the current stuff right there at the top.

Thanks.

Easy enough.  The reason is was done the original way is because it sounded good at the time to display the most urgent (the polls that were going to close soon) first.  But, can do the change.
