You need to make a List of IMDb Poll Board members
then create a Poll to see if they say Yes or No ... and where to meet, oh and a date ? ?

AyeLewis was a member of the old boards directly on imdb. A legend in its own right.

In this day and age of PC it's hard to be me all the way.
I have a Don Rickles mind with Robin Williams speed.
Get Sat Censors and I???? Ouch!
I'm in The Mojave so My 50 or so years of polishing my act are about to be unleashed somewhere in L.A. Just moved here a year ago. I got a voice made for Toons too! All 75+ of them. I do a mean Magilla Gorilla!!

It's a real nice idea and I think we've all had the conversation before but it's difficult because we all live in different parts of the world, all of which would probably require a long plane flight. For instance, I live in Canada and I know DC lives in India; but the idea is really nice.

I hope one day, we can all do that. Have a movie night or something :) Would be awesome to have all of the creative minds of the poll authors in one room!

Because the participants are so spread out around the globe, such a gathering would have to really kind of piggyback within collection of conferences at a weekend international convention. Usually an event has to be extremely important to get people to travel outside of their homelands, though. It's hard enough with national events in countries so geographically large and diverse as the United States (which is not even the largest).

I had this questioning ever since I started on the Daily Poll Board, we were quite a bunch of regulars and I was wondering how it'd feel to meet someone for real... 
... it's a good idea, I wish there was some electronic device allowing people to communicate with their faces visible :) ;)

I'm not sure how many IMDb Pollers... Poleheads... Pollites... Polletariats?  What are we calling ourselves again?  Not sure how many people live in NYC but I'll be game for a meetup of sorts.

Aww, that would be cool. But as others have said, we're really far away from each other. Maybe regional conferences are an alternative? I guess Jessica, Peter, Elmo, leavy, Breumaster, Hoekkie and me could find a literal middle ground in Holland or so (forgot anyone?). Not sure how far the distances are for members from other regions though.

Hey ElMo,
Know any shortcuts! LOL

You know our little exchange about the "Era" thing had me suspended. Not by IMDb but Get Sat! They reversed it. Nice to be back
Cheers.

I'd love to Host It here in California. Got to convince the U.S. Gov for a Grant!!
Bombay, India would be cool to.
Tokyo, Japan?
Seoul, S. Korea?
Paris after it calms down?
Different cities Bi-annually?

Well, I wouldn't mind "forgetting" an exchange that had a poll member been suspended, I'm sorry if I was even indirectly responsible for such a thing, well, better to look at the bright side of the future..
I wouldn't be the wisest choice if you look for a "shortcuts" expert, I have fear of flying and always take the bus, something I share with Stanley Kubrick (I wish it would be something else)... I always take buses even if it means two days of driving, if I had the chance to visit the US, I guess I'd be crazy enough to take my chance with the boat... yes, that's how severe it is lol

Isn't The Social Introvert from England? Imagine that, getting him back on board!

A transatlantic flight is probably a bit expensive for most of us, but what do you know... Cliff J, are there any financial shortcuts too? lol

Anyway, most of Europe should be pretty much manageable for me I think.

Baby Boomer Era poll.
They erased the whole poll.
It was banned.
I had a 40+ E-mail exchange that lasted for 3 weeks after that.
Everything worked out fine.
You and I had no problem.
But they said I was bad to you.
You did not see it that way, but they did.
They eventually came to the conclusion that it was a no problem later.
Shoot first ask questions later thing on GetSat's part. IMDb was innocent.
It's all good now. I'm happy because of the outcome combined the nagging problem that bothered me. That is why my screen name is so long. It is a combo of all three names I used. I wanted to be straight with all here. It was Important to be right about what I was doing. There is more to it that I can't go into in detail. I hope to be able to address it later. Maybe a month or two down the road.

Well, I don't think I can assist a meeting unless it happen to be at a place I'm traveling too in the time I'm traveling there.
But if any of you ever comes to Mexico City I'll be happy to say hello and show you around and go to the movies.

I wouldn't say a lot, but I know some movies and I know where to watch those films over here. Also some persons that studied with me in high school are in movies making independent movies. This is one https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3760008/?ref_=nv_sr_1, and this is the other https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5912252/?ref_=tt_ov_dr, he is currently 70% in a kickstarter to make his first feature film.

If they ever let anybody over the border again, Movie Time. L.A. Area.
No Horror pics though! My mom said no more Horror, because of nightmares 55 years ago. And I never do anything Mom says no to.

Is there anything you wanted to know about Mexican independent cinema Jeorj? maybe I can help.


I'l cross the border one way or another Ed Cliffj, don't worry, I have no special interest in horror, except for making my girlfriend watch them with me so she hugs me really hard.

We will find ways to include that movie in as many polls as possible, of course, and our curricula will say, "pollmaker-turned-filmmaker".

"A Day in the Life of GetSaters"

and then that is Listed on IMDb with all our names ! !

and IF the Reviews and Ratings are good

We can do a Sequel each year
