When I go to the homepage or when I do www.imdb.com I get this:


Is this the new official format? if it is, it's okay but there's no poll at the bottom... how can I get to the usual homepage instead of the new one?

I also get the new model, I can still see the old one in my mobile, but not in desktop. I actively dislike the new model, beyond the lack of the poll, which is already a big blow, there is nothing to like about the new homepage. Honestly I will avoid it and access the IMDb through another url.

Thanks.. ordinarily I would have written something but I don't know, I feel strangely stoic about it, I have learned that when something happens, it was bound to happen, that's the age we're living in. I don't like the format but hey, what can I do? 
At least, no one will complain about the homepage poll lol

The good about the homepage poll is that it use to gather many votes. Now with this new design that privilege is gone.

I don't think they care, the thread has no official response from anyone or at least an acknowledgment. I just left my commnet but I don't think anything will change.

The new homepage doesn't feel like the IMDb to me, and while there are still ways to access the old version, is safe to assume they'll soon be gone.

I'll just start skipping the homepage entirely and access the website through http://www,imdb.com/polls/ and navigate from there, I just hope they don't start changing the rest of the database.

There is a first reply from IMDb on page 2 of that thread:
