Additional security features for polls
Short, concise description of the idea
Proposal to expand the options users have for security settings when making polls
Full description of the idea
Right now, journal entries have multiple and customizable security levels. You can also control who is allowed to comment in your journal. However, polls lack these options. You can either let everyone vote in your poll or just friends. In the past it has been suggested that anonymous polling be allowed (http://www.livejournal.com/community/suggestions/401267.html for example). I'd like to suggest that we build on this as well with some additional level of custom polling options. There is no need for a custom security filter as you can set a journal entry to a custom level and the poll is expected to obey that setting. However, for public entries there is no option. I would suggest that polls be made to obey commenting settings as well. That way, you can make a public poll but know that certain people cannot respond to it. If you dont want them commenting in your journal, why would you want to allow them to be in a poll? On a similar note, polls could be designed so that the poll owner can remove and/or screen poll entries similar to the commenting function.
