Why is Joel and Ethan Coen separate? They codirect most (if not all) of their films.
And can you link the source of this 50 Must-See Directors for context?

Hi Chas Henderson (AKA HomerSmith),

Welcome to the IMDb Poll message board. Thank you for your poll suggestion.

1. Once someone responds to a post, only an admin can edit that post.

2. Please read:
FAQ: So You Want to Make an IMDb Poll? Here's How...
Please note: Polls are limited to a maximum of 35 choices.

IMDb Poll FAQ: Learn How to Make IMDb Poll on YouTube | Easy Tutorial for Beginners
FAQ: Selection Criteria for Polls

3. You poll suggestion appears to be a sub-set of your list:
50 MUST See Directors

Your poll appears to be based solely on who you consider to be the best directors. We are generally avoiding running polls of the form Choose among my personal favorites of ... A poll entitled Great Organized Crime Films of the 1970s should include The Godfather (1972) even if you are not personally fond of it. As a poll author you are balancing objective completeness/entertainment value/succinctness.

4. A poll consists of:
  • A succinct descriptive title
  • An optional introduction stating the scope of the poll
  • An evocative question
  • A discussion link that links back to this thread
5. I recommend changing the current title of your thread from:
Who is your vote for best director from these selected names from the '50 MUST See Directors List'?

Must See Directors

6. I recommend adding this as a question:
Which of these must see directors is your favorite?

7. Add this text as a discussion link:
After voting, [link=https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-who-is-your-vote-for-best-director-from-these-selected-names-from-the-50-must-see-directors-list]please discuss here.[/link]
8. After you save your edits, you should see:
Must See Directors

Which of these must see directors is your favorite?

After voting, please discuss here.
