Grouping entries

Greetings,

We would like to ask if it is possible to create groups of entries within one competition, so as to share between them the voting points.
For example, the Competition is Best Hotel, there are 2 Groups: Suites and Bungalows, the visitor can vote up to 3 entries, and they can vote any entry from the 2 groups.

Also, is it possible to give the visitor the option of changing their vote if they change their mind before the competition is over?

Thank you for your consideration.

Kind regards,
Softweb

Hi there Softweb,

Thank you for your question.
If I understand you well, you want to give users permission to vote 3 times in both competitions? 2 votes will be given to entries from 'Suites' contest (for example) and 1 vote to 'Bungalows'. Is it right?
Soon the user can change their mind and undo a vote to do it again and it is possible until the end of the voting period.
You can try to combine NorrCompetition with AUP (AltaUserPoints).
Theory:
- Give all new users 3 points (need to examine AUP and its documentation)
- Add action: subtract one point (-1) for a vote in AUP.
- As soon as the limit is exceeded, a user will get a message "you have no enough points to vote" (the message can be overridden with custom text like "sorry, you have reached your limit of votes")

Actually, an 'Unvote' is in our roadmap and will be included in the upcoming ver.1.8.2.
