Huki,

At this beginning stage, one poll is allotted per user. You can try that after few days, if nobody does that.

Ok, I made "Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role".

I hope I can make "Best Achievement in Directing" in a later stage. Otherwise I'll settle for "Visual Effects".

Ok. Go ahead. I don't think we should wait any longer for Kirk. It has been almost 3 weeks.

Benu,

The second stage will begin next week, Monday. I think we should wait for other users to grab some of these.

I agree, one week is an ample amount of time for a first run through. It should be the standard for Globes, BAFTA and Oscars. I like the one poll per restriction, too. I posted the update because I thought it would be helpful to recap what was still available for those who have yet to select one? Well done and good job, this year has been the least chaotic award poll season ever.

I was thinking about linking of these polls when they go live. It would make sense to add link between closely related categories, e.g. Best Actor and Best Actress, or Original Score and Original Song.

Perhaps we'll also make a list of the live Oscar polls.

If all the polls are back linked with a Take other Oscars 2018 polls, poll takers can bounce from each poll back and forth to the 2018 Oscar poll list easily and vote in every one. I think making it easy for poll takers to find and vote Oscar polls makes a huge difference, as evident by the difference a Home page placement makes over a Poll page placement in voting totals. It is as much about the lack of effort the poll taker has to put in to vote, as it is about the the higher placement visibility.

I also added a call to action at the top of the list to encourage more votes. Be heard like a member of the Academy and cast your ballot for the entire slate of 2018 Oscars Awards.

Thanks, DC

I removed last year's Oscars 2017 — Best Motion Picture as a live poll example and replaced it with Oscars 2018 — Best Cinematography on the list. I have no problem making the example list I created the actual real one. I will update it daily as polls go live. It should be effortless, if everyone fairly soon adds the hyperlink to their poll suggestions or at least prior to them going live.

ie.Discuss the topic here or Take other Oscars 2018 polls.

Again, the format for the hyperlink is as follows and should be placed right after your discussion hyperlink.

I recommend placing it next to the Discuss here link at the bottom for uniformity so it will show like this dual hyperlink Discuss the topic here or Take other Oscars 2018 polls. with an " or " placed between the two. It will be easier for poll takers to navigate,  if they are all the same and in the same location. The back link for the above "Take Other Oscars 2018 Polls" hyperlink is correctly formatted, other than the or.

Maybe adding some other related questions would be in order? Mu biggest surprise poll for example is also a season poll. And there could be others.
