Vote on New Poll...

...if you can see it that is!

I just wanted to point out that we have a couple of new features gracing our sidebar. First is a Weekly Poll on which anyone can vote. For those of you who can't see it, I will try to find out what the problem is, most probably it has to do with your internet settings (if anyone has any suggestions about how to resolve this problem PLEASE PLEASE let us know in the comments section). This week's poll (Parliamentary Crisis) will be up until the 12th of April (to give people a chance to adjust their settings) after which we'll put up another one.

Other new items on the sidebar include a GoogleNews feed, and two Dailystar feeds (for political and business news, respectively). Blogger seems to have a funny quirk when it comes to feeds, apparently refreshing your page isn't enough to update them sometimes, and one does find the need to clear their temporary internet files (Tools>Internet Options>Delete Files) in order to update them.

In any case, thanks to everyone for reading and commenting, I look forward to hearing more from you, and I hope you enjoy these latest features...if you can get them to work!!

  1. About the poll, can you ennable a "view poll results" button, because if every Israeli (like me for example) would have to chose something, just to view the results, it won't be a Lebanese poll anymore.

  2. Thanks for the suggestion Andrey. I didn't find that option when i set up the poll, then again I'm kind of new to this whole thing. In any case you can view the results any time by going to this web address:
    http://www.vizu.com/res/Current+Events/World/Lebanon/International+Tribunal/Parliament/poll-results.html?n=29446

    ...actually, I could just put a button for that page right under the poll...hmmmmmm

  4. Can it show the total number of respondents so far? That would be more meaningful.

  5. Also, is it possible to have a breakdown by region (via IP's)? That would give an idea of the breakdown in local/Lebanese support.

  6. Hey Jeha,
    The website hosting the poll only collects that kind of information on people who register with it (its free) and submit the info, and vote on the poll through the vizu site and not the blog. So I don't think I can go in and find it.

  7. Well, at least we know that, among the intelligentsia, Support is strong for the tribunal and the rule of law.
