Poll Title: Tribute: Iconic Black Male Movie Characters

Poll URL: http://www.imdb.com/poll/vdU_CPZ_4vc/

List URL: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls033676277/

Board URL:  https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/live-poll-tribute-iconic-black-male-movie-characters/

Reasons: polished introduction for flexibility, added paired companion female poll version hyperlink, added non-fictional and pop culture characters to broaden spectrum of answer options and updated message thread link

Dan, I submitted a request for a re-push on the old board as well as the new board. It has yet to be processed and completed. Does the request need to be altered to be approved and completed? Any advice would be appreciated?
