When checking my live polls I found one that is showing as "not active".

The poll is titled: "Worst Best Friend" and it went live November 3, 2016.

The url (was):

http://www.imdb.com/poll/FmRsclRCY5o/?ref_=po_ho

December 13, 2017 the poll was still active and had 1,121 votes.

Can someone take a look at it and tell me what happened?

This was a character poll. IMDb has disabled its old character pages, and all character lists have been deleted. The existing character polls are apparently in the process of being deactivated.

Ok, thank you. That certainly explains it.

...continuing to make a better product, one deletion at a time.

If you should wish to recreate your poll as an image list, you can post the suggestion at this board and add it to this list:

Peter and Dan, how can we tell if the replacement lists have been made into polls?

For example, this was posted for replacement a month ago but I can't seem to find a live version of the replacement poll...

Jen,

We waited on replacing the character based polls until we were certain that the character based polls have been deprecated (i.e. deleted). We will push the new version after reviewing the replacement.

ChaWiFu,

Fortunately the Internet Archive has an archive copy of your list, poll and poll results. This should help you recreate this character poll as an image poll.
