Forums - Website Issues - What's Wrong With VGC Polls?

Are Polls Broken?

Yes
No
I Can't Count

So someone brought up polls on VGC not adding up correctly. And, having a look around, this appears to be true:

 

Round 1: Most Anticipated Xbox One Game Post-E3

Below 31 57.41%
 
Battleborn 7 12.96%
 
See Results 10 18.52%
 
Total: 48

88.89%, not 100%

What Game To Play?

Mario Kart 8 367 69.64%
 
Mario Kart 7 1 0.19%
 
Pokemon X/Y 20 3.80%
 
Other 12 2.28%
 
See Results 11 2.09%
 
Total: 411

78%, not 100%

 

Should we have the option to delete polls?

Yes. 1,361 64.69%
 
Yes. 528 25.10%
 
Total:

1,889

89.79%, not 100%

 

This doesn't make a whole lot of sense; there isn't a common total, and it's happening to polls of all sizes. Just something I noticed.

The numbers to percents are also incorrect, 528 is not 25.10% of 1889, it's more on the lines of 27% and 31 is not 57.41% of 48, the plot thickens.

Indeed. But there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of pattern. It all seems entirely random.

Sadly, that seems to be the case with VGChartz!

How VGC works

VGC has a bunch of issues. fix 'em already, ioi!



Still waiting for them Metroid games :/

I've noticed it too, and this seems to happen to any pool with more than two options.
But whatever, we know it won't be fixed so I just care with the numbers and not the percents.
