THICC: Vote objects
Closed, InvalidPublic


How do we manage votes/polls? Do they need to be separate objects? Specialised comments? Objects we just embed in/after comments?

Votes need to:

  • track the total score
  • support weighted votes (admins have double vote on some types of votes, for instance, like VFS)
  • be includable on multiple pages (perhaps in multiple formats? full vote one place, just the aggregate score on a tracking page)
  • ...

I'll be honest, I'm seriously considering abandoning the infinite recursive embedding support idea, and this saddens me greatly.

So we probably just need to add some vote data to a regular initial comment (vote setup), treat immediate replies a bit differently (votes/comments on vote), and then thread as usual.
