According to the recommended procedure and the fact that it was long time (1 year and 4 months) ago since the last commit for this module, I'd like to ask politely if the project is still being maintained by anyone. There's a complete patch waiting for the maintainers to be reviewed and deployed at #1345600: Pollfield 7.x-2.x-dev with support for EntityFieldQuery and bug fixes.

Thank you!

I think you have your answer

Yep, the usage stats of the project are also flat-lined to about 1000 for years now. It seems dead and I would start using alternative if I were you. Or...

Dealing with unsupported (abandoned) projects

klonos, do you have any good suggestions for a different poll module? I'm having nothing but trouble with this and I'm apparently not going to be able to get any help from the maintainers...

Well, I haven't used anything specific lately, but there's Advanced Poll that seems to have a healthy usage stats graph (usage and adoption rate usually means people are happy with a project) but its last commit was a year ago. You might also want to take a look at projects such as the Voting API, Is Useful, Fivestar (and keep an eye in Fivestar Extra and #1635728: Refocus FivestarExtra 7.x for features that does not belong in Fivestar core), Plus1 and Vote Up/Down.

These ought to be enough to keep you busy ;)

Officially it is not abandoned, last update was on may 2013, it is still in development and need more testing.
I think that it has lots of features, but i can understand that only few sites needs exactly one of those feature (as it in my case for ex.)

I hope that the project will go on, because there were no modules (for what i know) that hide results before voting.

Maybe mantainers can't answer to all issues cause they are too busy in solving bugs, as listed in the roadmap

There hasn't been a commit to this module since 2011. I've marked the module unsupported. Whoever feels like reviving it can request ownership of the project in this issue.

Hi guys,

I am on a project which requires active maintenance of this poll field, and I'd like to take ownership of it.

Can I have it, please?
Many thanks!

FWIW I have changed the status of this project to reflect the complete lack of development around it. If the maintainer disagrees he is free to change them again but this project is basically dead unless someone starts committing code to it again and the status should reflect that.
