All Book Club Polls in 2012 should be Hidden. (17)
All Book Club Polls in 2012 should be Viewable. (7)
Each month, we should alternate between Hidden and Viewable. (10)
While it's clear that few want all open polls, it seems that if we add those who wish the poll to be viewable and those who wish it to be viewable at least half the time, we have a draw between viewable and hidden.
I'm going to close this poll and start another, to run for 5 days, with only two questions, which I think may reflect better on what people actually want:
1) Should the Book Club Polls always be Hidden?
2) Should the Book Club Polls alternate each month between Hidden and Viewable?
