Happy fourth anniversary!

The current version of the IMDb Poll went live on September 4, 2013. This achievement is due to the creativity and efforts of the 299 authors with published polls, more than 1000 people who suggested polls and the thousands of IMDb users who vote in these polls.

Thank you Col Needham for trusting the IMDb user community to run the poll on a day to day basis.

Special thanks go to two members of IMDb’s technical staff who implemented the poll and provided guidance and technical support for the first two years. Thanks also go to the IMDb Editors, who have provided support and guidance on polls since June 2015 and the other IMDb Poll admins.

Dan,

I have a question - what is the difference between 'Highest Average' and 'Highest Average Per Poll'? Isn't the average is calculated by:

Pencho,

Thanks again for demonstrating that we could run the IMDb poll. I believe that your IMDb users daily poll (http://moviesdailypoll.blogspot.com/) was instrumental in the return of the IMDb Poll.
