DPolls: An Ajax Pollster

Category: Showcase

<>p>DPolls is an Ajax incarnation of the polling genre. Interaction occurs in-page, without any need for refresh, which is perfect for encouraging people to actually vote. When you choose an option, you’ll see a progress indicator appear, followed by an animation showing the results growing to their rightful size. The animation seems a little gratuitous, but overall it’s a clean interface. It will be nice to see polls like this syndicated on other sites.

DPolls

Right now, the most popular categories are “Computers” and “News & Politics” :-).

I couldn’t find the source code. Any idea if they’ll be publishing it?

And here is another contender: http://www.e-ballot.net. This one allows you to create ballots online and invite friends to place their bids. You can also create ballots based on models others created.

You might also want to check out my site: http://quimble.com . It’s a little different, and adds some more “on-site” features, but I do like dPolls on-page AJAX.

[...] Remember DPolls, the Ajax polling application we posted about a couple of months ago? Well, now you can syndicate vote content on your own page: Quimble keeps its easy-to-use interface, but now AJAX polls (using dynamic script tags – another topic you wrote about) are available to the general public.

where from can I download it?

PollPub just released a new feature that lets you add YouTube to your ajax polls. The process is simple and does not complicate PollPub’s simple poll publishing process. During the poll setup, poll publishers will now have the option to insert YouTube™ embed code into the possible answer fields. Wow! Here is a funny example:
