..... of a forum's front page of thread listings everytime someone makes a vote?
Like it happens whenever a thread receives a post comment, you know.

HA! HA! HA!
One of the best posts I have ever read. Classic.
But ... I really was wanting to know. Not that it matters.
I figure it's because it would be too easy to keep moving poll threads up to the top all the time. All someone has to do is keep clicking ... and clicking ... and clicking. Too much traffic. Whereas, posting a comment on either a discussion thread or poll thread causes the bump. I don't know. Kind of like what it would be like if threads were bumped to the top everytime someone hit a 'Judge-It' icon. Imagine that.
But, I kinda think it would be nice if poll threads got bumped to the top everytime a vote occurred. How else can we know when a poll thread is updated other than when someone is brave enough to post a comment on one? Picture this. Someone visits a forum. This Topix Forum, for instance. Finds a poll thread deep in the archives. Say on page 15. Doesn't comment but does make a vote. Nothing happens. Sure, the vote is recorded and tallied. But the poll just stays stagnant on page 15. The one who voted knows he or she voted. But no one else gets the benefit of knowing that a selection was chosen on what may be an important issue. Therefore, there is never any real update. You know? If nothing else,'vote thread bumping' would at least add more activity to Topix which could be a good thing, I guess.
Well, at least there is this for now ...
And this ...
But not everybody probaly has discovered that you have to go to this to get to those ...
Regarding poll threads, I read in a thread where someone suggested that Topix should place a 'POLLS' button in that bar that sets horozontally towards the top of the Topix screen. The one that currently has buttons to click for "HOME', "FORUMS", "TOP STORIES", "POPULAR", "LOCAL", "POLITIX", "US", "POLITIX", "WORLD", "SPORTS", "ENTERTAINMENT", "OFFBEAT", and "OTHER".
Wow, that was a mouthful. Not that it matters.
