IMDb Poll Board Members,

If you have any poll suggestion threads on Get Satisfaction that you want to delete but can't because of GS rules, please post the URL of that thread here. Our Get Satisfaction Champions with admin rights will delete the thread for you subject to the ground rules posted below.

When you are mentioning the thread, please provide the following documents:

1. The URL of the thread.

2. The reason why you want to delete it.

Thank you.

Ground rules

1. A thread will only be deleted if it violates IMDb and Get Satisfaction's (GS) terms and conditions or is a request by the original poster to delete one of their threads.
2. Violation of terms and condition include spam and inappropriate content. Generally GS's spam and content filters identify spam and inappropriate content.
3. At this time these are the only requests from original authors that will be honored: duplicate threads, duplicate suggestions, the poll suggestion is no longer relevant, there is little or no interest in the poll, or personal information was posted.
4. Requests will be reviewed and may be denied.
5. Threads will generally be archived instead of deleted when there are responses and so long as the thread does not violate IMDb and Get Satisfaction's (GS) terms and conditions.
6. These ground rules will be updated as appropriate.
7. Mass deletion requests will not be honored.
8. Updating the original post in a thread may be more appropriate than deleting a thread.
9. The author of a post should be able to edit or delete a post if there are no replies, likes or follows.

DC,

I reviewed the request. Since Kirk-Picard requested that the thread be deleted, I honored his request.

DC,

I believe that this thread can be useful. However, we will need to establish some ground rules to ensure that people make appropriate requests. More likely than not, I will edit your original post in this thread with those ground rules.

As a reminder: Do not post any personal information on Get Satisfaction. Google, Bing and other search engines show results from Get Satisfaction very quickly after a post is made, frequently under and hour.

Sorry Dan, I just noticed your response, for some reason I'm not getting any notifications to responses on GS (even though I selected it in the settings). The poll no longer seems viable because I fear that there will not be enough variety in the answers from the users.

Thanks

Thank you.  OK I'll keep it.  It's hidden.  I'll unhide it.  

I need help with a title.

Lady Mercenaries,  Lady Annihilation Soldiers, Lady terrorist? Any suggestions?

I don't want to do lady assassins, someone already has done that.  Looking for action, sci fi soldiers.

Once I get a good title, I can do more research.  Thanks.

LDP,

You can try the title:

Lady Killers

Lady Killers is good.  But I'm looking for something that reminds me of soldiers.  When I think killers, assassins  comes to mind before soldier.

Captain Marvel is a soldier.  I wanted to add her to list.

I think I'll have to do 2 polls.  

1 for military/mercenaries

1 for terrorist/


Here is  a list of my ideas

Lady Exterminators
Ladies and Machine Guns
Female Sci-Fi Soldiers

Dan,

Please don't mind. I am putting you onto this hard work. Today I was checking and sorting all my previous PSs for future purposes. And found these PSs invalid. I am sorry for your trouble.

Dan, what should we do then if we find more than one invalid PSs??

I check all my lists, PSs and live polls data thoroughly once in 6 months. That's why I posted so many links under a single request.

I am sorry for your trouble. You can share these works with other Champs having admin right, like - Pibby, Groomi...

Please don't take all the loads on your shoulder.

DC,

Please note:
1. Your request took 6 days to honor.
2. Others Champions with admin rights chose not to honor your request.
3. I only honore your request, since there were two pending request made after yours.
4. It is impractical for more than one person to honor a mass thread deletion request. It is also more error prone.
5. Deletion requests should be occasional not regular.

DELETE REQUEST PS: Favorite "Game of Thrones" Lord or Lady
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/ps-favorite-game-of-thrones-lord-or-lady

REASON: I split the poll into two to keep size manageable while still covering all the prominent options. One poll will focus on noble lords and a separate poll suggestion on noble ladies. I made a notation of the 3 picks on the appropriate gender thread.Your call on whether the original post should be deleted. I would think it avoid confusion to have just the gender specific threads, going forward.
