#49 Poll: More Interactive (ie Interesting)

Rather than allowing a single voting option through
radio buttons, more interesting questions could allow
multiple choice answers through checkboxes. For
example, "Which of these films will gross US$100m"
or "Which of these footballers will play in Saturday's
game", etc. More skill means more interest means more
interactivity.

Another extension would allow ranking of results. So,
for example, the poll may ask you to place the top
five best-selling records of next week. If a user has
JavaScript we can do this with in very nice ways,
otherwise allow them to type in the numbers 1-5 on the
screen before hitting "Vote". Great for competitions.
