You will have noticed the reader’s polls at the bottom of our articles. The intentions of the polls were to provide reader engagement and give us the benefit of your valued opinions. Plus we thought they’d be a bit of fun. Nonetheless, they were only intended to be temporary while we determined if they were worthwhile keeping.
Judging by the response, they have been a huge success. The readers certainly are engaging with them. The only drawback – which we are working on – is that the polls can be slow to load on a mobile device or tablet (thanks, Malcolm).
One poll, by the way – the one asking if you support the Cashless Welfare Card – has had over 1200 votes in less than a week. (Incidentally, 96% of respondents were against the card).
Most of the polls come up randomly, so there might be a poll that has nothing to do with the article, but time permitting we can add a particular poll to an article if we feel it fits in perfectly with the article. If the polls are random, you might see a different poll at the end of an article if you refresh the page or come back to the article a second thine, and so on.
Like anything, however, ideas for new polls can dry up or we miss the opportunity to create a poll on whatever could be topical at the time.
This is where you can help.
Is there a poll you’d like included? Do you have a question to ask that might be of interest to other readers? If so, leave them in the comments section of the article, or you can email them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to see them.
PS: You may have noticed that with a simple click you can even share your poll results on Facebook or Twitter. (That too has been a great hit – the Cashless Welfare Card poll has so far be shared just under 250 times by our readers).
