NIA and Paok-Kilkis, I hope it's okay with you to have your original choices from the "Favorite Live Poll" poll here. If not, tell me :)

Nice that you created this suggestion so fast!
It’s really hard to pick one poll. At first I searched for my best poll, but that’s not the question. So I looked again and I searched for my favorite poll. I doubt very much betweem a few polls. For now I choose for: Midnight Movie Phenomena: https://www.imdb.com/poll/Wsd8QunsnVA...
But it could be that I want to change my pick. I have to think about it.

I would like to nominate a poll I spent weeks working on, Cinematic Cities, it is one of my favourites not only for the ammount of work it required, but because it received a lot of help from other users so it really was a collaborative effort.
It was painful to see it hacked and with results that are no longer useful, but still is one of my favourite works so far.

Oh yes, the same thing happened to one of my polls. Feels like all the work goes to nothing.

That is a poll-ception. I really need to think on this one, even though I have fewer polls.

This is my favorite poll that I authored:
Influential Films
https://www.imdb.com/poll/qAIc888JayU/

Researchers at Northwestern University analyzed connections data on IMDb and found these 35 films had the greatest influence on future filmmakers. Which of these films would be your greatest inspiration if you were to make a film?

If you like my poll and the research study upon which it is based, you may find this research study interesting:

Quantifying and predicting success in show business
https://arxiv.org/pdf/1901.01392.pdf

Oliver E. Williams,1 Lucas Lacasa,1 Vito Latora1,2,3,4
1 School of Mathematical Sciences, Queen Mary University of London, London, E1 4NS, United Kingdom.
2 The Alan Turing Institute, The British Library, London NW1 2DB, UK,
3 Dipartimento di Fisica ed Astronomia, Universit`a di Catania and INFN, I-95123 Catania, Italy.
4 Complexity Science Hub Vienna (CSHV), Vienna, Austria.

∗Abstract. Recent studies in the science of success have shown that the highest-impact works of scientists or artists happen randomly and uniformly over the individual’s career.  Yet in certain artistic endeavours, such as acting in films and TV, having a job is perhaps the most important achievement: success is simply making a living. By analyzing a large online database of information related to films and television we are able to study the success of those working in the entertainment industry.  We first support our initial claim, finding that two in three actors are “one-hit wonders”.  In addition we find that,in agreement with previous works, activity is clustered in hot streaks, and the percentage of careers where individuals are active is unpredictable. However, we also discover that productivity in show business has a range of distinctive features, which are predictable. We unveil the presence of a rich-get-richer mechanism underlying the assignment of jobs, with a Zipf law emerging for total productivity. We find that productivity tends to be high-est at the beginning of a career and that the location of the “annus mirabilis” – the most productive year of an actor – can indeed be predicted. Based on these stylized signatures we then develop a machine learning method which predicts, with up to 85% accuracy, whether the annus mirabilis of an actor has yet passed or if better days are still to come. Finally, our analysis is performed on both actors and actresses separately, and we re-veal measurable and statistically significant differences between these two groups across different metrics, thereby providing compelling evidence of gender bias in show business.

Hmmm, I had an old character-poll, "Yeah, I'm talkin' to you, Travis Bickle," that was closed with all other character polls and I haven't re-cast it yet so I'll choose another one. My polls from my first two or three years were so much more creative than any I do now. I used to do polls about animated characters going onto the wrong set and ending up in a live action film; now I do annual "Best Movies According to Meta-Critic" polls.

Oh, what a shame that "I'm talkin' to you", as well as many other good character polls, had to be closed.

Do you mean this one? It would be a worthy representation of your creative work :)

Yes, I was referring to that one. I have a recast of "I'm talkin' to you" but I haven't suggested it for a poll yet. I have 37 characters and I'm indecisive about which ones to cut. : )
I'm not sure the "Stewie" poll is my favorite but I'm being indecisive (again - surprise, surprise) so you can put me down with that one if you'd like. If not, I'll let you know within a day or two.

But this now is the poll concerned with your own live polls. I should probably clarify in its description that the other poll is about favorite polls by other users.

No problem, Greatest Showman poll added. I also regularly check all suggestions, "Literal Ladies" is funny but nothing came to my mind to contribute to it.

Honestly, I feel like nominating my "Top 25 number-of-word movie quotes", I suggested 12 polls like this but I feel like it's one single idea, that's how I got my first ever poll on IMDb and it kind of become a trademark with a great sentimental value so may I ask if I can have an exception and nominated the concept of Top 25 X-worded movie quote?

Do we have a deal if Top 25 number-of-word movie quotes is nominated with a note saying, "part of the Top 25 X-worded movie quote series"?

You know what, I'm an idiot. There isn't a Top 25 number-of-word movie quotes obviously, I thought there was a number in that title. So is it okay if I take this one here as a representative?

Hahaha, I just read your suggestion in that poll. 'How funny. Plus practically any picture of Cartman is funny. I really like Peter's suggestion, too. That was a rare poll in that I didn't vote for my suggestion. : )

Your choice was added and the title amended. I always thought that leaving out 'Lecter' was intentional, implying that Stewie and Hannibal are on a first-name basis :)
