Registering might be useful for certain cases, but most of them needs to be quick and simple. Hope you implement this soon. Thanks! Reply Philipp S says: November 29, 2020 at 11:52 pm I think this is very difficult to implement and can easily distort the results. Users could vote on the same idea multiple times, or vote as a guest, then register and vote again (without a way to remove their guest vote again)? Tracking user votes is difficult as well: Usually, the visitor's IP address changes frequently and cookies can be cleared. Would need a solid way to remember, how often a guest voted. And also how many votes are remaining for a guest. One solution I think is possible is via email: The plugin asks for an email address without registering a new user account. Then sends a "confirm your vote" email to that address and so can track which email addresses did place a vote. As a side-effect, you could merge the guest votes into the user account, in case the user decides to register an account with that email address.

We need to be able, that everyone can vote on one machine. Yes, there is a wide open door to manipulate, - but, we are aware of this. So if all the suggestions could be done with a switch and if all is off a user can multi vote on one and the same computer, we would be really happy.

In our use case, we need the ability to vote multiple times. Therefore no fraud prevention at all.
