FAQ: Key Threads - IMDb Poll FAQs Index
=========================================================


At least for the time being, please do not ask for a re-push to change the link to Get Satisfaction. There are over 5,000 polls; there is not enough time right now to make such a substantial change.

Polls that are accurate, up to date
and complete are more fun and satisfying. It's hard to make a perfect poll and the quality has been tremendous, but errors do slip in.

What we are describing below is a process for supporting post launch poll revisions.

Note: if you are looking to close a no longer relevant poll, check this thread: FAQ: Poll Close Requests

If you're a poll author, I would encourage you to revisit your thread anddecide whether the post-launch suggestions (or any new ideas you have) are worth incorporating. Some things to look for.

At least for the time being, please do not ask for a re-push to change the link to Get Satisfaction. There are over 5,000 polls; there is not enough time right now to make such a substantial change.

Always OK Revisions
* Missing discussion board links
* Typos in descriptive text.
* Missing an obvious choice (an obvious option was overlooked at the time of poll publish)
These are usually ok to add, as long as it is to the END of the list. It is good form to add the date you added this choice to the description field forthat choice. That way someone looking at the results will not be surprised this obvious choice has so few votes compared to the original entries.

Sometimes OK Revisions
* Missing/weak descriptive text.
Important! Do not change the feel of the poll. If your poll was for favorites,it must stay that. If it's a worst poll it must stay that. Does this make sense? Otherwise you're changing historic votes. That is bad karma. Adding alittle color or description that keeps the feel of the poll is ok.
* Changing A Poll Title
Mostly discouraged, except for adding a question-mark if appropriate.
* Updating a Poll Due to New Information.
A new creditable entry, not due to an oversight comes up (e.g. a new release).We would generally discourage this if the poll has more than a few hundred votes. You maybe should consider a new poll?
* Fixing a image for character polls

Very Rarely OK Revisions
* Deleting a Choice
* Re-Arranging and Order of A Choice
* Re-pushing to Replace Valid Options Without Votes
These used to be impossible, but they are rarely OK. It is allowable in the case they do NOT affect any live votes and the duplicate choice and ALL items following it in the list have ZERO votes. If you have any doubt, please post to your original thread before making this change; if you do it incorrectly, you will never be able to update your poll again!

How to Proceed

If you are the author and want your poll re-pushed, make the changes to your original list in accordance to the instructions above, then reply to this post with the URL of the poll. This gives us (and other users) a chance to see these in a consolidated place and not hunt through threads. If you are not the poll author, you must contact the author by private message or the poll thread (or one our poll admins may be able to help you make a case).

A re-push request on this thread will be considered if formatted as follows

Ensure your reply incorporates the Poll title in the title of the post.

    Poll Title: O',brother,sister, who art thou

    Poll URL: http://www.imdb.com/poll/wvdPChk96q8/

    List URL: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls059040806/

    Reason: Fixing capitalization in title (add much detail as you like)

Poll board members, please feel free to comment on the proposed revision and offer your support or rejection of the change.

It would be reasonable to cross post to the original poll suggestion thread, but this is optional.

Note 1: here's a useful trick. Can't guarantee this will work forever but it works now. If you want to find the list from a poll, substitute the word"list" for "poll" in the URL and the list id will come up.
e.g. http://www.imdb.com/poll/wvdPChk96q8/ -> http://www.imdb.com/list/wvdPChk96q8/ will 'automagically' transform to http://www.imdb.com/list/ls059040806/

Transitioning to Get Satisfaction presents a number ofissues, not the least of which is that all legacy polls no longer have validlink backs. Fortunately, the link backs which go to the IMDb message boards arere-directed to: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/categories/imdb_imdb_poll

At least for the time being, please do not ask for a re-push solely to change the link to a thread on Get Satisfaction. Please do not ask to correct minor formatting problems to justify updating the link back.There are close to 5,000 polls which went live when the IMDb message boards were available; there is not enough time right now to make such a substantial change. The poll administrators do not have the capacity to update the link backs on the majority of these legacy polls. Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis. These exceptions include but are not limited to:

  • Specific requests to update a poll from the IMDb Editors
  • Updating polls to add new relevant options
  • Updating polls to better reflect current information
  • Correcting typos in descriptive text
  • Replacing missing images or character pages
If there's still any confusion as to which polls will be re-pushed, please ask so that we can clarify this for everyone as soon as practical.

Thanks, the poll for Re-Push #5 I updated with an upcoming movie option a while back. I didn't request a re-push then, since I needed for the release date to be closer. I forgot it was there, but I updated the #34 Black Canary option and added the revised 15 December 2019 date . Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (2020) comes out in just over a month.

Thanks, for your prompt attention Re-Pushes #2 - #4 are current.

Reasons: When I replaced the missing image for BB-8 in the #15 spot, the delete of the blank spot didn't take. It moved the options #16-#30 down one spot with an empty spot in the 16 hole and mismatched the votes. I deleted it and the votes and images should be correctly matched with a re-push.

Poll Title: Dress for Success 'Star Wars' Stormtroopers
GS Thread: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/ps-dress-for-success-star-wars-stormtroopers/
List URL: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls066450869/
Poll URL:  http://www.imdb.com/poll/7LyQL4RVTqQ/
Reasons: added Take other 'Star Wars' polls here. hyperlink and replaced invalid (zero vote) #24 answer option Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones Clone "Old Republic" Stormtrooper Cadets with new #24 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker First Order 105th Battalion Sith Stormtroopers (Ground and Jet variants)

The old #24 cadet option duplicates #28 Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones Clone Infantry "Old Republic" Stormtroopers aka "bucketheads" as the both represent the "Jango Fett" clones. Plus, they precede elevation to full stormtrooper designation when fully trained. More importantly it predates their change in allegiance from the Old Republic to the Confederation of Independent States. Therefore, for all these reason the  Clone "Old Republic" Stormtrooper Cadets shouldn't be grouped with the other stormtroopers on this list.

I'm not sure that I know enough about 'Star Wars' to evaluate this in light of the following:

Very Rarely OK Revisions 
* Deleting a Choice 
* Re-Arranging and Order of A Choice
* Re-pushing to Replace Valid Options Without Votes
These used to be impossible, but they are rarely OK. It is allowable in the case they do NOT affect any live votes and the duplicate choice and ALL items following it in the list have ZERO votes. If you have any doubt, please post to your original thread before making this change; if you do it incorrectly, you will never be able to update your poll again!

I understand the need to kick the can to someone with more 'Star Wars' knowledge.

I UNDERSTAND these type of revisions are rarely OK, but I think this one fits the bill. In hindsight, the Clone cadets of option #24 and the Clone troopers of  #2 Scout / #8 Marine / #9 Attack / #11 Special Forces / #25 Guard / #26 Pilot / #28 Infantry are the same group, the latter options are just older and rebelled against the Republic and became Galactic Republic Clone Stormtroopers.  As well, the junior #24 option hasn't earned the right to call themselves a full blown trooper.  Wookiepedia details the #28 option depicted in Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones as Clone cadets | Wookieepedia.The non-depicted Imperial cadet | Wookieepedia would be a better choice here to represent cadet stormtroopers. Given the #24 option has a number of issues and no one else perceives them as a viable stormtrooper option either, as indicated by a lack of votes. I would suggest replacing the option, since the poll integrity is not compromised by its replacement.

I hesitate because it would perhaps make more sense to add the new option at the bottom with the other added options.

I don't agree that having poll with an invalid/duplicate option is a better choice than one without. Nor does having an option no one wants to vote for; while leaving other more popular and viable stormtrooper choices on the sidelines. Plus, no one's vote is being invalidated, it is a correction, as well as, a simple re-allocation of resources to better use.

Although, not the reason for the change the saving of slot is a side benefit for the replacement route. I only have three open spots remaining, so putting the new option at the bottom would leave only two. 

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
introduces four new specialized stormtroopers; Sith stormtroopers, Sith Jet stormtroopers, Treadspeeder driver stormtroopers, and Treadspeeder Jet stormtroopers. I can't fit all these new entries into the existing poll and I have slotted for this poll a single combined Sith stromtrooper entry.

Every new 'Star Wars' installment adds new variants to keep itself fresh. Even with rationing the remaining of slots to one per installment, the premium on unused poll slots is only going to magnify with future "Star Wars" Disney+ live-action series and 'Star Wars' theatrical movies already in the pipeline.

Dan, in the part of the guidelines that rubyfruit76 quoted, you previously added the line "Re-pushing to Replace Valid Options". The text that follows this line refers to edits which change the order numbers of options, and I don't think it applies to the line you added. I suggest that you move the added line and list it separately after the explanation text:

Very Rarely OK Revisions
* Deleting a Choice
* Re-Arranging and Order of A Choice
These used to be impossible, but they are rarely OK. It is allowable in the case they do NOT affect any live votes and the duplicate choice and ALL items following it in the list have ZERO votes. If you have any doubt, please post to your original thread before making this change; if you do it incorrectly, you will never be able to update your poll again!

* Re-pushing to Replace Options Without Votes

Peter,

What you suggest makes sense. I will make the edit when I have had a little more sleep so as not to violate the intent of your proposed edit.

#21 has not yet been re-pushed because the new options are missing the dates of addition. If you can let us know when you've added the dates, we'll be happy to re-push it. Thanks. : )

Poll Title: Disney-Produced 'Star Wars' You Most Want to See
GS Thread: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/live-poll-star-wars-you-most-want-to-see/
List URL: https://www.imdb.com/list/ls031426423/
Poll URL: https://www.imdb.com/poll/91Zs4E-8NsU/
Reasons: updated introduction / answer text to be current, modify question to  previously announced, replaced #4 Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker image and Take other 'Star Wars' polls here hyperlink

Comment: This most anticipated 'Star Wars' poll has outlived its usefulness with five options having debuted already and three others being cancelled or in limbo. My preference is for poll deletion, but that doesn't seem like an option at the moment. Therefore, I am adding three recently announced Star Wars projects to the single existing upcoming answer option to make the best of it.

added answer options #10 Star Wars: The Clone Wars (TV Series), #11 Untitled Star Wars/Cassian Andor Series starring , Ewan McGregor, #12 Untitled Star Wars/Kevin Feige Project starring ????

Hmm, I'm wondering about option #12 for re-push #23: there's so much missing information but you wouldn't be able to add the information in a re-push when it becomes available, especially if it would get any votes as it is now.

Thanks. Re-Pushes #18 - #22 are current.

Ruby, I share your concern, but it is sorta of the nature of the beast with these most anticipated project polls. I agree it is less than ideal, but so is having only one viable answer option on a most anticipated Star Wars title poll.

The Untitled Star Wars/Kevin Feige Project title that you are referring to, I would hazard a guess is currently generating the most interest among fans (even without any details), The simple fact Marvel's Kevin Feige is attached and seems to turn every he touches into box office gold is all fans need to know. So, the lack of details in this case really doesn't hold it back that much. It combines the hopes of  a disaffected Star Wars fan base with a legion of Marvel fans who will turn out to see Star Wars get a Marvel treatment. I have re-pushed this poll every time a new Star Wars film premieres and sometimes in between, as announcements warrant. So, I expect it would be updated if new information warrants and be more current likely  within the next six months.

I already requested the poll be cancelled @ FAQ: Poll Close Requests. Based on the notes on that thread, it doesn't seem like that request will be honored. I consider of the alternatives, a re-pushed version with the Untitled Star Wars/Kevin Feige Project title added and an updated (January 2020) introduction to be less dysfunctional that the current version (August 2019).

FYI, I made some additional text edits to the introduction/answer options, as well as, swapped the #8 image for the David Benioff, D.B. Weiss one @ Why "Game of Thrones" Creators Will Make Great 'Star Wars' Movies.

Re-Push #23 is current.

Thanks, Ruby
The only pieces of information that I would want to update in the future would be a current plot outline, current release date and a title specific image. Again, my preference is for my cancellation poll request to be honored @ FAQ: Poll Close Requests for this live poll rather than having to resort to these stop-gap measures.
