TR v2.1, the poll returns!

As I’m sure you all remember we ditched our old poll software when we cutover to the new site design and CMS.  The old poll software was long-abandoned by its author, full of ancient PHP workarounds and completely out of step with the new site’s look and development approach.  Our redesigned poll widget is full of shiny new buzzwords like asynchronous, JSON and rich client experience, it’s tightly integrated with our CMS and is stylish and attractive thanks to Cyril.

Please take the test poll questions below for a test drive and let me know if you have any problems with it.  Expect the poll to return to the front page in another week or two.

    I had to go with Spy. I can’t help but get a warm tingly feeling each time I disguise myself as the enemy and run backwards into their base screaming for a medic before killing the poor bastard after he heals me…

      Well said 🙂

    Medic man. I’m a team player and like to keep my teammates nice and healthy. Besides, playing as a medic, I almost always score the highest point in the match.

    awesome. i voted engineer because i play him the most, and score the best with him as well.

    The pyro, however, is very special to me. It’s got the lowest points:playtime ratio. it’s probably also got the lowest points:fun ratio for me, too. i just love running headlong into the enemy’s ranks and just setting everyone on fire. sometimes i even survive, so i run back and do it again.

      The Pyro compensates for my lack of quick reflexes! I like watching 3-4 people show up on the death list as I wait to respawn. I always charge right into a dense pack, and usually take out a SG, teleport, or dispenser while I’m at it. I may die quick and often, but my points go up fast! People tend to hold back too much in these games, no matter how many times you kill me, I keep coming back.

    I seem to be able to vote again after a browser restart. Is this intentional?

      no, is your browser configured not to save cookies?

    Works fine for me, even on my relatively locked-down version of Opera 9.25.

      • ssidbroadcast
      • 12 years ago

      Yup I’m on Opera as well and it seems to be okay.

    Work machine works fine. hmmm…. Both are 2.0.0.11

    Must be a cache on my end that refuses to clear out or something.

    Never played TF2, so another vote for Cheese option.

    • Nitrodist
    • 12 years ago

    No cheese option?

    • CasbahBoy
    • 12 years ago

    theres currently a 5-way simultaneous tie and lead between soldier, pyro, engineer, medic, and spy, each with nine votes.

    cool.

    Results have too many spaces (frame sizing goofed up?), seemingly random, spreading the page out. Firefox 1 on XP.

      Is there a reason why you’re on FF 1? We don’t test with old firefox versions. Can you try doing a shift-refresh or clearing your cache, maybe you have an older version of the stylesheet cached.

      • Cyril
      • 12 years ago

      That doesn’t look like FF1, but it doesn’t matter — like Steve said, you definitely have an outdated stylesheet cached. Refresh with CTRL-F5 and see if it clears up.

        Whoops, typo, Firefox 2. Actually I tried that too with no difference. Sorry! Trying the work machine next.

          • liquidsquid
          • 12 years ago

          Works now at home, don’t know why.

    • lordT

    I voted for the medic. Medics are awesome.

    • highlandr
    • 12 years ago

    Since I haven’t played TF2 yet, where’s my vote for cheese?

      • Convert
      • 12 years ago

      3 polls in a row with no cheese option, the gerbil jedi are going to feel this one.

        I feel a disturbance in the force… lol
