Hey, what's the best way to set up a polling system, like the amihotornot.com deal? I'm working on a site with some friends, Is Joe Dirty or Not?, and i'm not sure the best way to go about it...would it be cgi?

language doesnt matter. but you should think about backoffice performance issues. mysql and so....

grats42: This was recently done as part of an intro to ASP in a UK Internet magazine and if you were interested I could probably dig the code out for this if it would make things easier (if you are using PHP it can be ported over easily - he says airily).

That would be great emp. I'll take it. I'm also teaching myself Perl at the moment and it seems pretty easy and very useable. Seems like a whole lot of these server side languages are very similar...

thanks

Sympoll is also a very nice polling script written in PHP...

I don't really have access to MySQL at the moment...its $15 more a month...

I was planning on just starting out with a basic flat-file polling system...I think I might have gotten the preliminary done in Perl. Though I'm still new to the idea of fully dynamic content web-sites and its sorta difficult to think through it seems...

Proxy2's polling program does support flat files and is for free for non commercial use!
