We often have polls asking us to vote for the top 5. Suppose instead we got 5 votes to cast as we wanted. E.g., all 5 votes for a single item; 3 for item A and 1 each for items B and C. Top vote-getter would win.

What do you think?

Could be interesting.

Issue might be that a few fanboys concentrating all their votes on a single item could end up dominating the poll results, as opposed to those spreading their votes on five different items.

You don't have to use all 5.

Weigh heavily for one by voting ONLY for one.

@Griefbringer: That's a feature, not a bug. Of course, it's available to everyone.
