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!

Xbox One - PS4 - Wii U - PC

Polls are broken as well?

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



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.
