But I can see why other people would prefer the alternative of multiple votes.

Depends on how the percentages are calculated. Of course, you divide the number of votes for each choice by N, but N can be either the total number of votes, or the number of people who voted. When the poll only allows voting for one choice, it's the same number N either way. But when multiple selections are allowed, the former methods results in underreported percentages, while the latter method results in more useful figures.

Even more useful would be figures on correlation, but that would require keeping between O(n^2) and O(2^n) running totals depending on how thorough the analysis is to be, where n is the number of choices --- or just store the original ballots and recount them as necessary for each reported figure.

RE: [Poll] Mental Conditions of Hosts

Yeah, basically, "Choose the condition you'd like to represent yourself the most" isn't so great. Probably best to lean towards inclusive for this poll.

Hopefully people aren't dumb and don't choose "Mix of any of any" plus 2+ other options, or the Autism + ADHD mix and also Autism and ADHD. I'd like to think they aren't.

Some disorders are more than one disorder by definition too. Like schizoaffective disorder, which refers to having both schizophrenia and a mood disorder like depression.

Well if that's how it is calculated then I have no problem with that method at all.

I'm the host, but I also have Yulia with me.
