Poll doesn't remember my vote

When I entered the forum a few minutes ago I noticed a poll where I can finally vote (preffered distro) and voted for "Mint" which made the votes for Mint to be 4. Then I clicked on a topic in order to reply and while I was writing my post I noticed the poll doesn't show my vote. So I voted for Mint again, the votes for Mint became 4 again, posted my reply and went back to the forum index. The poll was reset again and my vote was gone.
Here's a video with the problem:

BEFORE WIZARD'S VOTE

and




AFTER WIZARD'S VOTE

Results are the same with sidebar view and from the Thread itself.

Must be the way you are holding your mouth? :)

Seriously, we have the occasional localised problem with software here.

If other Members have difficulties, we can plead a case to Management.

BTW I voted Debian, but will change, later, I like and use all the options, plus more :D

Hahaha, my mouth is closed during voting, lol! But did you see the video I made? I'm not making this up, it is happening.

I think you're misinterpreting what you're seeing. The first time you voted, it went up to 4. All subsequent times it ignored your re-vote and remained at four. You can see a dot or an asterisk to the left of the distro you voted for.

It ignores my re-votes too. I tried it because I wondered if it was sophisticated enough to prevent multiple votes per person.

I notice you never clicked on "View Results" in your video. It shows the results without affecting them.

I never heard of zippyshare before.

Not the best way to post a video, I cannot watch it, YouTube is easier, I use it here.

Zippyshare fails on my UBlock, and when I relax restrictions I get shuffled all over the place, including ending with a Game called Vikings something for 18+ with a lady with a very attractive butt but no joy on the vid. Still, it put a smile on my dial for my first coffee of the day :)

Huh? I wasn't talking about politics (which I'm sick of), I was talking about the poll to the right side of the screen.
