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!
