Globally viewable poll answers

Title
Globally viewable poll answers

Short, concise description of the idea
Allow an option when creating polls to make the answers viewable by everyone, not just those with livejournal accounts.

Full description of the idea
The whoview attribute of a poll can currently take the values "all" "friends" and "none". "all" only allows for people with LJ accounts to view the results though. A fourth option that would allow the page to be viewed by anyone, even without an LJ account, would be useful.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Allows users to have more control over who can view their journal.
  • Keeps livejournal fully accesible for outside users.
  • Less reason for people to get an account that they aren't going to use.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • If "all" is changed to mean everyone even outside of lj then there could be possible problems converting old polls to remain viewable only to lj users.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • This could be done either by adding an option such as "world" for everyone, or by changing "all" to mean everyone, and introducng something such as "all-lj" to replace the cureent "all".
