Ascending or descending order for poll results?


The polls for this year are over and results are out. But is there any specific reason why the results are not displayed in ascending or descending order of winning entries? Ascending would be best to find out. Like winner with most votes at the top and so on according to the number of votes they garnered.

PS: I am happy, ubuntu and firefox won. I voted for both.

The sorting of polls isn't something that's currently supported, but we'll keep it in mind as a future enhancement. Thanks for the feedback.

BTW, http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/2010mca.php has a nice visualization of each poll, if that's what you're after.

That link showed a good overview of the results but I was talking about the sorting on the same page as the poll on the top where results are displayed. But thanks for confirming it Jeremy. I know its not a very great enhancement but it just helps members go through the results quickly and efficiently.
