After ten days of the initial release of dpoll, these are the stats for the usage so far:
|Number of Polls||Number of Answers||Number of Users|
With a simple proof of concept, I can call this as a success. Thanks, everyone trying the app.
Winning the Utopian hackathon
The project won the grand prize on Utopian hackathon. This was my 3rd hackathon as a developer. I made the second place on Packathon before, but winning the competition is much better. Thanks to organizers and initiative. I can't wait for the next one.
Special thanks to @ms10398, the hero of the dpoll. Hackathon was in place in a weekday, therefore I couldn't use all the hours since I was working at the office at my day job.
This will help in making the app truly decentralized. Also, even though, I don't store Steemconnect tokens in any database, they're stored on the HTTP-Only cookies (Signed with a SECRET key.) and transact with the Steemconnect in the server side. When everything becomes client-side only, it will be better for users to trust the app. I have examined a couple of JS libraries and started the rewrite with vue.js.
Revamping the interface
I know, it doesn't look good. I need help on that. Will try my chances on Utopian tasks-requests category.
Voting by commenting in other interfaces
That will need a special vote identifier in the comment body. Example:
My answer: B <comment on the why B is selected>
It's not possible at the moment. Even though you can edit the post in Steemit, it will not be reflected to dpoll interface at the moment.
Ability to write thoughts into polls and votes
A simple question or vote sometimes doesn't make any sense. The user might need to express their feelings about it.
A live image bundled into the post about the results
If Steemitimages don't cache the images, this is technically possible. A cool bar about the results will be shown on the poll posts regardless of the interface(Busy, Steemit, etc.) used.
Got a couple of questions about it. The answer is a no. I don't think we will have any curation initiative rewarding good polls.
