Adding Questions to poll changes options

I started a poll with the ability to change answers enabled. Subsequently I added another option to the poll. This disabled the ability to change answers and there was nowhere for me to re-enable this feature (a mod had to do it for me).

Edit poll removes ability to change vote

The test poll I created in the Chat forum had the option to allow people to change their votes enabled. This shows up as a Remove Vote link beside the poll which then allow you to re-vote.
I had a typo on one of the candidate names. I edited the poll to correct the typo and now the Remove Vote option is no longer there.

Re: Edit poll removes ability to change vote

James, if you edit the poll, do the options to specify the number of votes and Allow user to change vote show up?
This is what I see:

Jelv,
Try locking the voting and then editing the poll.  It then gives you an extra box to allow customers to change vote.

Lock the poll? - I can't see a lock option!
