Question Can we have a poll to vote down?

Hi ,

I was just wondering if it would be possible to have polls that incorporate both positive and negative votes. I know good reviews help us decide what Q-banks, books or courses are most helpful, but some of us also have had bad experiences.

It would be a great way to make sure the same bad experience does not happen to others, especially considering the amount of money we shell out for some services. Posting about an experience helps, but often this is perceived as biased. I hope the forum moderators consider this request.

Thumbs Up You can still do it

Thank you geo82 for your suggestion.

There isn't a way that we can allow members to vote negatively on a poll but you can do the following;

You can create a poll with negative options.

For example;
Poll Question: What do you think about product A and product B?
Poll Options: - Product A is awesome - Product A is terrible - Product B is awesome - Product B is terrible.

Another example;
Poll Question: What was your experience with service XYZ?
Poll Options: XYZ were very nice - XYZ was very expensive and not worth it - XYZ is much worse than ABC ...etc
