Additional security features for polls

Title
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.

An ordered list of benefits

  • increased security levels for polls
  • making polls obey other security options like those already existing on the LiveJournal website
  • gives a journal owner more flexibility
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • possible additional dramaish stuff from people wondering why they can't vote
  • requires additional coding to make polls obey certain settings
  • polls done in communities would have to obey community settings which might confuse some people but hopefully not since they already can't use custom settings/etc in communities
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • would require somebody with lj-coding skillz to get into the poll creator code and change the security setting options and line them up with existing options.
  • change faq to reflect additional poll options and their restrictions
  • Tags: polls, privacy, ~ listed - needs retagging
