How on Earth did you come up with this so quickly and had the time to pack it up in phpBB.com standard fashion?

Anyway, I have been wanting a MOD like this for years. It really comes very, very handy with certain polls. Not only is this good for keeping up the standards of a serious discussion, it also just about eliminates miscast votes (or at least they are much more easily caught by the voters themselves). It is very awkward if the votes of a given poll do not reflect the discussion at all, and that makes you think some voters are just trolling or did not think very carefully what and why they voted. I personally find that extremely frustrating. Of course, when it comes to "What's your favorite color", none of this matters, but when it comes to, say, "Should we allocate more funds from our national budget to reduce the effects of global warming?" and the options are, for example, "Absolutely; Yes, but...; No, but...; Absolutely not", it is of utmost importance to discuss the matter with the vote variation reflecting the discussion.

This works fine with idiotnesia's Show poll voters MOD.

Thanks again!

;) To be honest, I only prepared codes in your request topic, but then just only tested and packaged this mod. This is very much like my other mod: poll vote reminder, which forces users to cast vote. So, I copied from my other package and replaced variable and mod names with notepad++ find and replace easily.
I liked the idea you requested this mod, so, came up with a fast package. I sometimes start polls in my board, and people cast vote for nothing. Once I got angry after seeing random votes in a poll. So, let's see how will this go in your board. :)

Why not poll starter explain in first post and ask people reply first before voting.

That topic asks for limited time polls, and by default phpBB3 has that feature in days, if not hours.

I want to request something, I want the opposite of this MOD haha.

Can we require the user to make a reply to the topic AFTER voting?

So, the opposite of this MOD. :P

I believe, it' up to the poll starter to inform users posting neccessary for voting. It's easy to post an explanation in topic starting post: "they should post before votin" .

No, not with this mod. You need to require a new mod in MOD requests forum.

One issue is important, a user can post a reply and delete reply after voting. If that is an issue for you, disable deleting own posts in board.
