Default Poll votes viewable?

I just noticed that you can see who voted for what on recent polls.
Not that this would affect me personally, but I've seen a few threads where it could definately become a problem, is it supposed to be like this?

Default Re: Poll votes viewable?

When making a poll the creator of the poll can make it an open poll so you can see the poll voters usernames.

And if someone feels that they don't want anyone to see what they picked. There is a warning at the bottom of the poll. So people are warned.

Creating a new poll

When you post a new thread, you may have the option to also create a poll.

This function allows you to ask a question and specify a number of possible responses. Other members will then be able to vote for the response they wish, and the results of the voting will be displayed in the thread.

An example poll might be:

What is your favorite color?

1. Red
2. Blue
3. Yellow
4. Green
5. Sky-blue pink with yellow spots

To create a poll when you post a new thread, simply click the 'Yes! post a poll' checkbox at the bottom of the page, and set the number of possible responses you want to include.

When you click the submit button, you will be taken to the poll creation page, where you can specify the question and the list of responses you want to include.

You may also want to specify a time limit for the poll, so that (for example) it only stays open for voting for a week.
Voting in and viewing a poll

To vote in a poll, simply select which option you want to vote for, and click the [Vote!] button. You may view the current results for a poll before you vote by clicking the 'View Results' link. Voting in a poll is entirely optional. You may vote for any of the available options, or cast no vote at all.

Generally, once you have voted in a poll, you will not be able to change your vote later, so place your vote carefully!
The FAQ says nothing about public polls... Maybe an admin wants to add something about them in there so newer users know they exist?

Also, FYI the default is private.
So if you make a poll right now, it would be private unless you checked/unchecked the little box (Can't remember) to make it public.
