With the introduction of polls on some Mastodon instances, I decided to start the 1st Inofficial Programming Language World Championships! #plwc2019
It's a knockout tournament where 32 programming languages compete against each other, and you decide the winner of each round by voting.
Sadly only a select few instances support polls so far and you won't see them on Fedilab just yet. Check the website!
PHP v Bash
Object Pascal v D
Spread the toot, let's make this a fun one!
@fribbledom I can't vote. Nothing happens when I click one of the (presumed) radiobuttons.
I assume you're on my profile page? It doesn't seem to work there indeed, you'll probably have to wait for your instance to support it. Alas, the federated life 😆
What version of Mastodon supports this? I am the admin of my instance so I can update if I want.
I'm not even sure if it's in an official release at all, so far. It's only just been rolled out on mastodon.social tonight and I've seen a few other instances support it as well by now.
@fribbledom are you sure that it worked making the poll? Even with my undercover m.s account, I can't see any poll on your toot. (Even though I can see the option to make polls in the toot-creation-area.)
The polls were separate toots, see here:
@fribbledom oh, that explains it.
