There are many movies with the sea as one of elements. As Jaws, or movies related with shadows, wars, submarines anyway, there are lots. Would be cool create a pool about.

Hi octioseman,

Once someone responds to your post on Get Satisfaction, only an admin can edit that post.

How to suggest an IMDb Poll

IMDb Polls are built on IMDb Lists. Poll administrators can create polls from these lists.

You will need an IMDb account to create a list. You can also use Facebook, Google or Amazon to sign in, but it's probably best to stick with one so you don't accidentally end up with multiple accounts.

You will also need a Get Satisfaction account to post your poll suggestion here. You can also use Facebook or Google to sign in.

Create your list

1. Create an IMDb List by going to http://www.imdb.com/list/create. You can always access your lists from your profile or your list page.

2. You can choose from titles, people or images, depending on your subject. Each type of list works in slightly different ways, but any of them can become a poll.

3. Name your list. Keep your poll title short and punchy. Future proof your poll by using a title that works days, months, years ahead. Don't include the words "Poll Suggestion" here.

4. In the description field, include a clear poll question. You can also include an introduction. Check your spelling, grammar etc.

5. Add a link from the list description to your suggestion post so voters can discuss the poll. You'll have to post your suggestion (see below), then get the permalink to the thread and re-edit the description. Example:

[link=https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion...]Discuss this poll here[/link]

6. Add poll options as entries in the list. There can be any number of options from 2 to 35. You can include descriptive text for each option.

7. Make sure your list is public so other people may review it. If it is not public, the link to your list will produce a 404 (page not found) error for everyone but the author.

Post your suggestion

1. Start a new post here in the IMDb Poll community.

2. When you enter the subject of your poll, the site will search for previous posts with the same keywords. Check to see if your poll has already been suggested by someone else. Click "Post with this title" to continue.

3. Under Title, use "Poll Suggestion:" followed by the name of your list.

4. Under "Conversation Type", choose "Idea".

5. Under "Description", include the question and description from your list and insert the URL of your list.

6. Under "Related Categories", make sure IMDb Poll is selected under Services.

7. Post your suggestion.

8. Now wait and see if your poll is selected as a new IMDb Poll. Even if your poll is not selected, your post will remain on the board and other users may vote on it with their comments.
