Hey Tanvir,

That poll went live when the IMDb message boards were still active. The message boards were deactivated last year, and so the discussion link now redirects to GS instead.

I'm the author of that poll. What did you want to suggest?

I wish if you could add 'Aynabaji' as an option for 'Bengali'

Tanvir, 

The poll went live over three years ago, and I normally don't like to add new options  after such a long time.
I realized when I made the poll that there are far too many languages in the world to fit into a single poll, that's why I included the option "Any other language".

But I will add your suggestion and request a re-push. Thank you.

ACT_1,

When the message boards closed and the poll board moved to GS, we were told not to ask for a re-push solely to change the discussion link to GS. Only if we need to make a major update to our polls, such as adding new options, replacing missing images, or updating the poll to better reflect current information, would it be okay to change the discussion link to GS as well.

And until now, I haven't had a reason to update the discussion link of this particular poll, but will do so when I add Tanvir's suggestion.

Jessica,

Thank you for adding 'Bengali' as an option. I know it's not a good thing to add a new option to a poll after such a long time and there was an option for 'The Others'. So I would like to let you know why I wanted this...

First of all,my mother-tongue is 'Bengali'. But this is not the main reason. I know Bengali films are not that much renowned around the world. Bengali film industries need to improve. But still, whenever there is a discussion, any type of discussion regarding language... I think Bengali language should be there. Because when I think about language, I think of 1952, I think of my grandfathers fighting and dying for the right to speak their own language. For their valiant sacrifice, I'm able to speak my own language with pride and freedom. It's because of them, It's because of the sacrifice of Bengali-speaking people, we celebrate 21st February as 'International Mother Language Day' worldwide. As your poll is about language, I thought it should had 'Bengali' as an option. Not to mention 'Bengali' is the 4th language in term of speaking population.

Sorry for my emotions. I just wanted you to know why I wanted this. Thanks again.
