Hi,
I have made:
The Funniest Comedy Film of the '00s 
The  Funniest Comedy Film of the '90s
The Funniest Comedy Film of the '80s
The Funniest Comedy Film of the '70s
The Funniest Comedy Film of the '60s
I was planning to make the 2010s list, but I saw your suggestion.
Is it ok with you if I make this suggestion as well, or maybe instead of you?

I agree with some of the things you wrote, but when you said 'we should prevent someone to make polls just for the sake of it' and 'what satisfaction would I get? Sure I covered these actors' areas and if anyone makes similar polls, I'll call first... but what was so interesting and (yes) "fun" in making these polls in the first place?' if you are referring to me (because I make many suggestions) I have fun with every poll that I make even with some which I know they will never go live. Either way Hoekkie's suggestion will probably be the chosen one by IMDb editors either I erase my list either I don't.

First of all, I'm sorry if I said something that displeased you, this is why it's gonna be my last intervention on the subject.

I was referring to something that doesn't just concern you but anyone taken by the poll fever... and that also meant me at some points of my life. So believe me, I'm not judging you or anyone because I'm in no position to judge. 

What I'm saying though is that our polls' methods (frequency and content-wise) sometimes can interfere with one another, even if it's not intended. It's like having your roommate cleaning the place once a week when you can't wait more than two days, there's got to be some arrangements made for the sake of harmony.

And I'm sure you have fun making your polls but you know, "fun" is a two-way road, it has to be enjoyed by both the maker and the receiver... sometimes, I have fun making a poll and then it all falls flat and I give up. 

Anyway, have a good day.

Paok, maybe it's better to give in. The other pollboard users/members right. I know it's a contest for the best Ideas, but you must admit that the idea of making this poll series was born of the mind of Hoekkie. It would be more gentleman like to give in. It's a little like Sony and Disney, when you look at the super hero movies from Marvel, specially the next Spidey movie. Sony had the guts to give in. Koh Tao, Sony! ;D

Anyway have a good day.

I never said that I have 'steal' the idea of this poll from Hoekkie, I said that the IMDb editors will probably choose his poll over mine and that's fine by me I won't complain, it's their decision to make. It just happened that these kind of suggestions had a previous owner.  7 months ago I had also make 6 similar suggestions:
The Best 2010s Fantasy Movie: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-the-best-2010s-fantasy-movie
The Best 2010s Biography Movie: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-the-best-2010s-biography-movie
The Best 2010s Sequel: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-the-best-2010s-sequel
The Best 2010s Sequel Part 2: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-the-best-2010s-sequel-part-2

Is Comedy Drama eligible?

Therefore the list 6 includes comedy-drama such as Easy A, Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Disaster Artist, Hunt For the Wilderpoeple and Moon Rise Kingdom. So I don't understand why others like La La Land, Green Book, and Birdman are not eligible.

The Disaster Artist has a much more comic tone than Birdman and Birdman has a more dramatic tone than The Disaster Artist, The Disaster Artist is laughable and Birdman is less accessible, about Green Book I think it was Peter Farrelly himself who considered it a drama despite that in the golden globes they have been nominated as a comedy.

After all this I can only say that the line between comedy and dramatic comedy is very fragile and can be confused above all with comedies that are taken very seriously.

The best comedy of the 2010s and almost ever, in my opinion, is The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

Unfortunately The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is also drama so I can't include it.
