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.

All thread deleted.

In the future, please do not request a mass number of thread deletions.

We need to verify each one of your requests. Mass deletions are more likely to lead to mistakes.

Since no one has replied to the post yet, you should be able to delete it yourself, I think.

I edit the original post in this thread with the link to the image list, since there were two comments.
Thread 1:
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-spidermans-cinematic-villains-f9op1i7x444fm

I copied to contents of the original post in this thread (Thread 2):
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-spider-mans-cinematic-villains

I will hold in deleting Thread 2 until you verify this looks OK.

Please keep in mind that deleting threads may not be the best solution.

Yes the original thread looks good and I made it so the list goes back to the original thread.

Sorry for the extra hassle.

This wasn't so much of a hassle as a desire not to delete comments about your poll.

I deleted Thread 2.

DC,
If a post was made more than a few days ago it may not be possible for the original author to delete it.

Jen,
If you do not see Remove at the bottom of the post, please post here. I will delete it for you.

Dan,

If a post was made more than a few days ago it may not be possible for the original author to delete it.

But I can and have deleted many times my 3 months old threads without a single post.

Hey there, Moa'taz.  My name is Ryan Lee Williams of Taylor Mill, Kentucky, but you may call me "Digger".  Anyways, I may sound like a buttinsky here by contacting you like this, but I just wanted to say to you that I really admire you for the way you handled the whole "Teriek Williams" deal and everything.  I have to hand it you, you're a real cool customer and a better man than I in dealing with things like this.  Let me tell you what, if someone had called me what he called you, and told me what to do with myself the way he told you, I'd have broken the dude's kneecaps.  I'm serious, man.  I wouldn't take junk like that from anyone, especially not from a two-faced rat-fink like this 'Williams', if you get my drift?  Anyways, I just wanted to let you know that I got your back on this one, okey-dokey?  Peace out, dude.

Thanks Digger for your support I appreciate it very much.
Teriek has been a good friend in the past but his anger got the best of him this time.

2. Potential poll idea no longer possible with one of Bergman's films (Fanny and Alexander) being pushed out of the Top 250. Those darn superhero movies!

Dan,

I know, right? I thought it was a cool idea to show the influence one man's had on the 250 list. I have another suggestion pitting Scorsese vs. Nolan against each other (IMDb 250 Face-Off: Scorsese vs. Nolan), which was also based around each director having the same number of films in the Top 250. But now that Dunkirk (2017) has come into play, it looks like this one won't be publishable either.

I think I may keep that thread alive though, with Scorsese's The Irishman (2018) standing a good chance to crack the list. Then they'd be equal again in terms of 250 films (with 8).

Thanks for your help with this one!

Thread: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topi...
Reason: I changed the title and the question. So I decided to make a new thread. I had no replies in this thread, so I think it's good to delete this one.

Hoekkie,

I deleted the thread. However, since there were no replies, you should have been able to delete the thread yourself. You should also have been able to edit the post.

If you have replies, we attempt to move the replies to the duplicate thread.

I wanted to edit the thread, but it wasn't possible. I didn't search for the delete option.
Thanks for removing and for the information.

2.  I think it would be interesting to make a poll about them if they are nominated.

LD,

I like this poll, but it is probably premature to run it until later in the year. Do you mind holding off on deleting this poll suggestion?
