This happened 10 minutes ago. Don't worry. Maybe some technical error.

I hope. I just noticed it the minute I visited so I didn't know how long ago it had happened.

Pencho15, Dibyayan Chakravorty, et al,

The poll admins just received a note from the IMDb Editors confirming that there is a technical problem.

From IMDb Editors:
I wanted to let everyone know that we have taken the poll off of the homepage as it is causing a site error. I'm tracking the issue and will schedule it back once a fix has been implemented. I wanted to give your team a heads up so you can let the community know that this is not a permanent removal. The poll is still live on the app and mobile homepages.

I will tell you (poll admins) when the issue is resolved and when I can get the poll back on the site.

Thanks for your understanding!
I (Dan) will post in this thread when the problem is resolved, unless IMDb staff posts an official response on Get satisfaction first.

The IMDb Editors selected a different poll to go on the IMDb Home Page:
Most Anticipated Sequel of 2019

The IMDb technical staff is investigating why another poll caused a site error.

As more information becomes available, an IMDb staff member, another admin or I will post an update.

From the The IMDb Editors:

Hi everyone!

The bug has been fixed and so we are back to normal and not restricting any character usage in lists or polls. So it's business as usual!
