Hi José,

Thank you for your poll suggestion.

Please remember if your poll were to go live, that everything in the description will appear in that poll.

Please remove from your list:
[click on the image to see iconic quotes]

This makes sense for you list, but it would be confusing if your poll were to go live.

The IMDb editors gave us the direction not run polls that have vulgar text and/or inappropriate images. Please bleep out swear words in the quotations.

For instance:
These are some of the most bad ass movie characters. They are the type of person who gives a s--t about what is right or wrong... 
or
These are some of the most bad ass movie characters. They are the type of person who gives a darn about what is right or wrong...

José,

I understand that these are the direct quotes. However, IMDb does not want certain word in polls and reviews.

Thanks coherenteducation,

That is exactly what I intended to say. I edited your post to keep you from having your Get Satisfaction account sanctioned.

Vulgar language and Not Safe For Work (NSFW) images violate IMDb and Get Satisfaction's Terms and Conditions.

Other users have had their accounts removed for posting vulgar language. Get Satisfaction also filters for vulgarities and NSFW images.

@José,

You poll suggestion is very good from a new author. Other than the vulgar language it would be suitable for going live. Generally, the other admins and I like to see more comments on polls before they go live in case there is something we've missed.

Best of luck.

José,

Your edited text should be fine, although there are a few cases that may be borderline.

Hi José,

Choice #10
https://www.imdb.com/list/ls023274654/mediaviewer/rm58586112

Given the extremely inflammatory nature of the word, I recommend obscuring the N word even further to N*****.

José,

Polls are limited to 35 choices. Your list currently has 35 choices.

You cannot add any more choices to this poll suggestion. The poll software will not allow polls to be made live if the list exceeds 35 choices. Once a poll goes live, you cannot add choices.

 Hi Jose,

Because “badass” has a few different definitions and one is quite different from how it’s used in this poll, I would suggest noting that. Perhaps you could say something like, “Badass can be defined in a few ways, one of those definitions being an impressive and admirable person. This poll’s usage of the word does not connote admiral behavior; rather it’s meant as fierce, competent in their task, and intimidating.” (Feel free to just copy and paste that if you'd like, if the meaning is close enough to what you mean.)

This is another well done poll. You’re a natural. :)

Obviously, I mean if that is the definition you intended. I don't mean to assume what definition you intend.

Your definiton it's exactly what i intended to say. If you watch, pratically almost every character on this list are pratically what you say "fierce, competent in their task, and intimidating."
I liked your suggestion, the concept of this poll became more clearer. 
Thank you for this, i already updated the description list.

José,
Just to clarify. A poll can only have 35 choices.

Once a poll goes live, if a poll has less than 35 choices, you can add choices to the end of the list and ask for a re-push.
Since your poll currently has 35 choices, you cannot add more choices.
If your receive enough suggestions, you may be able to suggest a part two for this poll.
