I voted today on the three finalists for the breastfeeding icon, and I chose the second, but when the poll results came up, it said I had voted for the first one. The only thing I can think that happened, is that I didn't enlarge the picture that I wanted to vote for, sice I already knew which I wanted. I just selected the dot for finalist #2. But if that has happened to many people, the poll might be totally invalid. Just wanted to let you know. Thanks.

just wanted to chime in that I think the same thing happened to me. Voted for #2, registered as #1.

I know you're already on it.

There is a lot of discussion that it seems like almost no MDC mamas voted for #1 and yet it's winning. The thread is here.

Hey, me too! I love #2. It's the most clear icon to show breastfeeding and not just holding a child...

Whoa, me too!

I would never have noticed but was really surprised #1 was winning so comfortably (voted for 3, registered as 1).

Same thing happened to me. All are great, but I think #2 and #3 more clearly denote breastfeeding. I think I chose 3, but it registered my vote as for #1.

Cynthia is checking into it. She set up a test poll that she and I have tested and so far we've not run into any problems. But, we're still looking into it.

Wondering if Diebold is somehow involved....


(I didn't even check to see how my vote came out. So now I don't know if it worked.)

Ok, I went back and looked at it again. I tried to vote again, to see if it would at least show me what my previous vote was. All it did was show the current results, with the "winner" (number 1) in boldface. But that doesn't necessarily mean that my vote registered for #1; just that it is the current winner, and is thus in boldface.

Right?

How are y'all getting confirmation that you voted for a certain one? Are you assuming that because #1 is bold, that is the one you supposedly voted for? Maybe it doesn't actually mean that. Hmmmmm.

I was just coming in to post about this, too. I am really concerned. Number 1 is really not MDC style, imho, so I was floored to see it taking first place.

I believe that the one that is in the lead is bolded - not the one you voted for. Also, Number 2 has taken a small lead....

I'm so glad that #2 has taken the lead, I voted for it because it clearly shows breastfeeding - the other two are ambiguous.

What do you see on your screen that tells you what you voted for? The poll does not give you a "You voted for #__" message after you vote. I'm thinking that many of you are assuming that the bold print is indicating you voted for that icon. That is not the case. The bold print merely shows the icon currently with the most votes.
