#195 reopened defect

Poll macro doesn't track session/ip

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: rjollos
Priority: normal Component: PollMacro
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.8

Description

If you select a vote, click the vote button and then hit refresh, the vote will be counted twice, hit refresh again, and it'll be tallyed again, and so on. A properly motivated individual can easily skew any results by doing this.

Tracking against session won't easily work with anonymous users, or those that block cookies. Tracking against IP doesn't work these days because of NAT. What might be more usable is an option to restrict voting to logged-in users only.

Yeah, this has been a problem since day dot and I reached the same conclusion as coderanger.

Replying to rjollos:

Voting is now restricted to users that have registered a session.

Confused this with the vote macro ... this is not yet implemented, but this is the feature that I think we need to implement.
