    Surely you aren’t suggesting that kardotim ought to be dropping all his other support work in favor of camping out in this thread or the other thread simply to hold your hand and pacify you, while the developers are working to resolve your issue.



    I like this one: “Always promote a kind and friendly atmosphere where all users feel welcome.”

    I’m sure it doesn’t apply to me only.

    I feel like I’m the bad guy all of a sudden. Look at it from my perspective: I reported a problem, and posted a thread for help. The thread was closed by someone I do not know and someone who did not make himself known as administrator or moderator. I cannot mail him as he has given me the norepy address and he doesn’t reply to this either, although I’m pretty sure he has read all this.

    Doesn’t sound like “happiness” to me. And I don’t feel welcome either, but that is of course my problem.

    Hopefully he’ll say something before midnight my time, I heard tomorrow is the end of the world as we know it.



    If you want to control threads, start a forum.

    We do technical support here. We don’t do emotional support.


    Ah, another smartass. I said: Look at it from my perspective. But you obviously didn’t. So I’m the badass now, just as I said.

    It was the first thread I posted on this forum, and it was closed after 5 minutes. The guy who did it does not wish to communicate with me, didn’t tell me who he was, didn’t give his email address and I’m very disappointed with the help I got. Furthermore, I’m apparently not allowed to say that, again, I’m the badass.

    One guy recommends me the code of conduct, and the other says we don’t do emotional support.

    Screw you all.

    I have found out what the problem is and how it can be solved, I already said that, but no one is interested. Figure it out yourself.

    Nevertheless I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New year.

    If Amybeingamy wants to get rid of the poll, contact me, I’ll tell you how to do it.



    Screw you all.

    I’m sorry you were disappointed that your other thread was closed, but this kind of reply is simply unacceptable here. Please read our code of conduct and decide if you can abide by the standards of our community or not.

    amybeingamy and anyone else having this issue – thank you for your patience while we continue to investigate this glitch. We’ll keep you updated here.



    We believe we’ve found the source of this problem and fixed this issue.

    If anyone is still having this problem on their site, please let me know. Thanks!



    Hi. First, sorry for my english, is very lousy!

    I don´t know how you fix it, but you did it right! My blog was having the same issue, but with 3 polls. There was something about “more” tag and the list of “most readed” in the menu?

    Anyway, many thanks to all the team! I don´t regret to choose WordPress as my bloggin platform!

    PD: @bertholdbouman, you need to relax a little. My thread was shuted down too, but it was for something, don´t you think? Keeping 1000 threads with same topic, it´s not only hard to answer, but also hard to find a solution to the people with the same problem. Think, then talk.


    It shows up when you reblog someone’s post that has a poll on it. They must close the poll on it, or you must delete their post.



    camaleonx – thanks for letting me know that the problem is fixed on your site, we appreciate it!

    themodernidiot – thanks for letting me know.

    There were actually a few different circumstances on folks’ sites that were causing a poll to mistakenly appear in the footer, and we hope that our fix solved all cases.

    If anyone is still seeing a stray poll in their footer, please let me know and provide a link to your site so we can take a look.

    Thanks, everyone!



    Aha! Smart catch!


    I’m having a polldaddy poll showing up at the bottom of my blog, which is a self-hosted blog with restricted access to people on my company’s VPN. Any suggestions on how to fix the problem? I already closed the poll but I don’t want to delete it.



    mdorss – could you please contact Polldaddy support directly for that?

    Thanks very much.
