ACT,

For poll authors having 10-15 live polls, it is easy to track voting on each of their polls.

I (Dibyayan_Chakravorty) have made 382 polls so far. The suggestion you made above is really not possible for me.

-----------------------------------------------

The vote rigging is an old issue. We can not do anything about that. And it is definitely not a serious issue from the point of view of IMDb Staff. So, just ignore this thing.

Please report if you find any rigging case for the IMDb ratings of any title, because that is a serious issue.

I do not do polls
Why do polls if you (and the others) do not care about the count ?

These New Pollers each day (Same person) also do Ratings riggings (?)

"Why do polls if you (and the others) do not care about the count ?"

Reason 1: IMDb doesn't pay us for the hard work.

Reason 2: We have other things to do in our lives, like study, job, business etc.

Why waste time making lists and polls

Seems like fun Only if the count in kept

See which Poll has more votes (then make more of the same type)


No interest in Ratings ?

"Seems like fun Only if the count in kept" #nope. #notevenclose

"See which Poll has more votes (then make more of the same type)"
One way to keep the poll monotonous and pretty much samey (but in a bad way).

Having an interest in your polls, checking the results, discover the winner, I'm sure we all do that. Even we go back to old polls and see them from time to time. But its not possible to do it with every poll on a regular basis. It's simply too much work. Even if you have deep love for your polls, what would you do in the case of Dibyayan? how do you monitor over 380 polls weekly? Its not lack of interest, simply it is not possible.

If you're not involved why are you wanting us to make changes? You don't seem to know much about how the system works/why we want to make polls. It's about sharing information, posting something for the entertainment of others, being creative, working with the others in the board to create something for all IMDb'ers to enjoy.

It's not about who has the most votes.

My only interest is New Users and each day I find some flooding the Polls and Ratings and no one cares about the Numbers

Checking the Count often may reveal real Pollers and Raters and Fakers

These are your lists - not mine

How many of these New Users that I list post on the GS Boards ?  None
