Should I report this as a bug?

Post by BondGamer »

When you create a global announcement that is also a poll it reads like this:

Global Announcement: Poll: Topic Title

It does not look very pretty. But I don't know if this would be considered a bug.

*Added*

Also, I was trying to determine whether to report that BCC in the private message page might need some sort of explanation of it's function. I didn't know what it did until I looked up the acronym on the acronym finder.

I would think whether something looks pretty or not doesn't count as a bug. It's a matter of personal taste.

Presumably BCC will be in the userguide. It's a standard email feature that's been around for years though.

You can report both as a bug.

Why do people always tell others that they should not report bugs? :(

Surely it's a bug if it's doing something wrong. That's saying there's a global announcement which also has a poll in it. Isn't that correct behaviour? I was giving an opinion on whether I thought it was a bug :)

Honestly, how can you indicate that a topic is both a global announcement and a poll?
Global Announcement (poll): ?
I find the current behavior quite right.
(About BCC: it's a common acronym but I bet not many people know it, so a little explanation would be good.)
IMHO.

What about something like "Announcement / Poll:"

I like the term Global Poll myself.

But it's no more an announcement then.

The developers can decide what it should be. It could be as simple as removing the extra colon or changing to an entire new term. My reasoning for Global Poll is this: when a normal topic is a poll it does not say Topic Poll:, it is just a poll. If you create a global announcement poll, you are probably creating it to poll the entire forum at once. Thus a Global Poll.
