Dan,

Are you talking bout the following feature?

Page of 'Avengers: Infinity War (2018)' as an example:

DC,

The title page for Avengers: Infinity War (2018) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4154756/) does not follow the standard template for a title page in the US. There are added graphics beyond the standard template.


The title page for Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2527336/) is probably a better example of added graphics and features to a title page.

That doesn't show when I open the pages. Maybe it is only seen in certain countries?

I believe you and Pencho15 uncovered a major flaw in my poll suggestion: IMDb advertising is probably significantly different by country and region of the world.

Are there any other films in my list that do not have special advertising?

From your list, none of the titles showing the special advertisement on my PC.

In that case, this poll is probably not viable. However, I will let others make that determination.

It is good for the US and often works in the UK. It's still good if labelled as such or perhaps upload some screen grabs?

FWIW I was going to reference this poll in the EOY letter

Col,

Thank you for your consideration.

Per your recommendation, I will convert this to an image poll after I've had the opportunity to do screen grabs and uploaded the images.

This poll has not gone live. Volunteer user poll admins have agreed not to push (publish) their owe polls to avoid conflict of interest. IMDb Editorial Staff poll admins can and should push their own polls. Another poll admin could push this poll.

Dan,

Making this an image poll will be the best idea. So that people from every part of the world can vote. But, I am thinking in which category will you upload those screenshots? There is no such specific image category for screenshots.

I will have to think about this. What is your advice?

Dan,

For an image submission under a title page, there are the following six categories available:



In my opinion, none of the categories are suitable for 'screenshots'. Still if you really want to upload those images, I would suggest to submit those under 'Production Art' category.

Please Note: Whether the images will be approved or not is depended on the IMDb Data Editorial Team. If they approve those images, then it's fine, otherwise you have to make a post on GS requesting to approve those images, because those are required for a Poll Suggestion of yours, you have to write so.

Considering the relatively small image size in the poll layout, I wonder if it is worth the effort to upload screenshots?

Even though we don't all see the same designs, the poll may still be viable. Not all polls are for everyone.

Peter,

I suspect you are right that the small image size (150 x 150 pixels) in the poll layout will make screen captures counterproductive.

Below is an image capture of title page for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. It does not do justice to the page when reduced to 150 x 150 pixels.


A static image also does not capture any animation associated with the page.

Since I've already added language this language:
These special film title pages may not be available outside the US.
... I will not do the screen captures and go with the title list version of this poll.

Dan,

I have a better idea.

Capture the screen from PC (larger size), then upload it to Google Drive, put the shared link to the image under the description of each options.

Ultimately, it will be a 'Title' poll and people can see the screenshots by clicking your Google Drive image links.

This looks like it may work.

The one down side is that people would have to click an external link to see the image. hb recommended against any poll that depends upon someone clicking an external link; people may not return to the poll and IMDb after clicking the link.

DC,

This is my current thoughts.

I will do screen captures of the title pages and attempt to load them on IMDb. I will also load them onto my Google Drive.

1. If the IMDb Content Editors allow the uploads, I will edit the image list for each of the titles then link to the corresponding image in the image list.

2. If the IMDb Content Editors do not allow the uploads, I will link to the image on the Google drive.

Breumaster,

Unfortunately, the special version of the title pages are generally not available outside the US. Occasionally they are available in the UK. I did an image capture for these pages for those unable to view the pages even though the static image does not do justice to the majority of the pages, since any animation or other special functions are not available.

This is an image capture (Static Image) of the special page for Avengers: Infinity War
