I'd like to congratulate Rafael_M and ElMaruecan82 for earningthe first "Poll Maker" badges(*).

We're still debating exactly where and how this is awarded, and like everythingon this new feature, it's subject to change, but currently we're targeting 100kaggregate votes on all polls by an author. That represents about~10 "popular"-ish polls at our current levels, although with thegrowth, we're expecting that to drop dramatically over time.

Poll Maker will be issued at 100k aggregate votes. Otherbadges a possibility, but we'll hang here for a bit.

Who will let them know about the secret handshake?

dan_dassow Tue Jan 5 2016 06:51:14 

Peter,

Per our charter, the members at large will form a nominating committee toselect potential candidates for sharing the secret handshake. After thecommittee selects candidates, the members at large will conduct a secret ballotof up to 10 rounds. If a candidate is not selected by the end of 10 rounds, onewill be chosen at random via a quantum mechanic random number generator. When acandidate is selected, white smoke will emanate from IMDb headquarters inSeattle. The candidate will then demonstrate the secret handshake and othersecret rituals to the novitiates. When a novitiate has mastered the secretrituals, the members at large will conduct a virtual formal induction ceremony.

Small correction - I was 15th IMDb Poll Maker badge awardee, not 14th. I think HB earned that badge before I did.
