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.

Thread Title: PS: Spencer Tracy Tribute - Favorite Movie Character
Thread to be Deleted: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/ps-spencer-tracy-tribute-favorite-movie-character
Reason: Active poll suggestion for three years and doesn't seem likely to be published. Poll suggestion needs to be converted from a character to an image poll suggestion, it is not worth the time and effort to do so.

Thread Title:PS: Bette Davis Tribute - Favorite Movie Character
Thread to be Deleted: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/ps-bette-davis-tribute-favorite-movie-character
Reason: Active poll suggestion for three years and doesn't seem likely to be published. Poll suggestion needs to be converted from a character to an image poll suggestion, it is not worth the time and effort to do so.

Thread Title: South Korean Made Olympic-Caliber Movies
Thread to be Deleted: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/ps-south-korean-olympic-caliber-movies?
Reason: i was asked to create a more dissimilar suggestion to close the Olympics by a poll administrator. That poll suggestion went onto become Live Poll: Favorite Movie With South Korea as a Backdrop? This poll suggestion while more current and expansive overlaps this poll on South Korean films :https://www.imdb.com/poll/KVmJJgVaeDI/, therefore it is unneeded.

Thread: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-face-off-gta-v-in-game-movies

Reason: The poll idea is 2 years old. I think this one wouldn't go live any more. The game is old.

Not a deletion request, but I was reading the rules, and I think and update is required in point three:


3. At this time these are the only requests from original authors that will be honored: duplicate threads, duplicate suggestions or personal information was posted.


It has been a long time since threads are deleted for many reasons besides those mentioned in the rule. Most of them for a lost of interest by the original author or for the suggestion becoming untimely.

Would it be a good idea to reflect this in the original rule?

Pencho15,

It seems like a good idea to reflect current accepted practice in rule #3.

Does it depends on us or do we have to take it to IMDb staff consideration?

Pencho15,

I haven't forgotten about your suggestion. The holidays have intervened to allow less time to devote to the polls.

I will update when I have the presence of mind to do so.

Pencho15,

I updated the Ground rules in the original post to this thread to better reflect current practices. As noted below, these ground rules will be updated as appropriate.

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.

Thread Title: PS: Missing-In-Action "Game of Thrones" Characters
Thread to be Deleted: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/ps-missing-in-action-game-of-thrones-characters
Reason:  A pretty efficient season seven wrapped up a lot of GoT loose ends, eliminating most of the more interesting answer options. Still, missing in action characters: Daario Naharis, Jaqen H'ghar, Ellaria Sand, Edmure Tully, Septa Unella, Kovarro, Robin Arryn, Brynden 'Blackfish' Tully (not depicted death), Olyvar and Anguy. Plus, this poll suggestion needs to be converted from character to image driven poll.

Thread Title: PS: Best 'Planet of the Apes' Franchise Movie
Thread to be Deleted: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/ps-best-planet-of-the-apes-franchise-movie?
Reason: Suggestion duplicates a live poll, but poll was outdated. It has since been updated and made current, essentially rendering this PS useless even as a back-up suggestion.

Thread Title: PS: Favorite 2018 Independent Spirit Awards Winner
Thread to be Deleted: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/ps-indie-spirit-awards-2018-favorite-winner
Reason: PS not current as we move into 2019 award season, not likely to go live at this point.

Thread Title: PS: Back to the Future, Past Movies Set Today (2019)
Thread to be Deleted: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/ps-back-to-the-future-past-movies-set-today-2019?
Reason: existing live poll https://www.imdb.com/poll/RaikJ8uAANI/, therefore this poll suggestion thread is not needed. The other poll's title is a bit non-descriptive and I failed to realize they covered the same topic.

Thread: Poll Suggestion: Best Henri-Georges Clouzot Movie
URL:  https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-best-henri-georges-clouzot-movie
Reason: Since Diabolique and Wages of Fear are his only best known films, I'm  changing this into a Face off poll. So I thought I might re suggest the poll idea by starting a new thread. :)

I need a Face off poll suggestion deleted please.
