Registered users who've never seen these but are curious about them will probably wind up only watching the two that are available free-of-charge with an Amazon Prime subscription. I wonder if the selection of films are all technical masterpieces like the one about the volunteer White Knights valiantly saving the town from dark marauders (LOL).

Hi Vivien Caronna (AKA Robinshallrestoreamends),

Thank you for your poll suggestion. As a fan of old film I really like the concept for your poll.

1. Once people respond to a post, only an admin can edit your post. I have admin rights and edit your posts as necessary.

2. Please read:
FAQ: So You Want to Make an IMDb Poll? Here's How...
Please note: Polls are limited to a maximum of 35 choices.

3. Poll suggestions consist of an IMDb list with the following information:
A succinct descriptive title.
An optional description of the scope of the poll.
An evocative question or call for action.
A link back to the thread suggesting the poll.

You already have a succinct descriptive title. You still need to edit your list to add an optional description of the scope of the poll, an evocative question and a link back to this thread.

4. Your title has a small typo. The ellipsis are not needed. Please change:
Best D.W Griffith Film.....

To:
Best D.W. Griffith Film

5. You may wish to add to your list (https://www.imdb.com/list/ls024126157/) a short description on the career of D. W. Griffith Film.
D. W. Griffith was a pioneering film maker who directed over 450 short silent films and five feature length films. He was a visionary in narrative film-making and film technique, although he was similarly criticized for his blatant racism.

6. Please edit your list to add a evocative question. For example:
Which of these D. W. Griffith feature length silent films do you find most interesting?

7. For your poll to be considered, your list must link back to this thread. Please add this text:
After voting, [link=https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/best-d-w-griffith-film]please discuss here.[/link]
This will appear as:

8. Once update your list, it should appear as:

Vivien,

Thank you for making the recommend changes. I've updated your original post accordingly.

I have one minor quibble: Please add a period after the "W" in the title for your list. The title of the list would be used as the title for the poll if your poll suggestion were to go live.

Please change:
Best D.W Griffith Film

To:
Best D.W. Griffith Film

Sorry for the confusion. I think the title was fine as it was.
I meant the question should be in the description, instead of what you currently have (Pick the D.W. Griffith film you think is best!).
