Naturally this is not meant to be posted before sunday night.


Any other possible outcome I can add as an option?

FYC,
1)I would post a picture Bran Stark as the Three-Eyed Raven https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3652842/mediaviewer/rm4172878080, instead of lesser character, Stannis Baratheon or use it for another option, like the one below.2) Maybe add an option "WTF, I never saw that ending coming?"  Game of Thrones: George R.R.

Bran and the 'I never saw that ending coming have been added'.

Pencho15, I can understand omitting WTF. I still would use some other extreme expression of shock to precede "'I never saw that ending coming" to capture a level of shock or surprise to a left field twist. (ie OMG or something of the somthing like the that). I think it helps capture the spirit of the feeling.

I think #8 I've never seen the series and  #9 The only Game of Thrones I care about is in the books.overlap. May I suggest changing #8 to make them exclusive of each other. #8 Indifferent, I've never seen the series or read the books.

Thanks for the feedback. I have added the OMG! to precede 'I never saw that coming' and I edited the option #8 to indifference. I also moved that below the books option.

I like how the poll suggestion came out in the end, especially the text of each option. Well done.

P.S. I noticed the Bran image I suggested was a head shot, while all the others are half body shots. It looks a bit funny. So, here is same photo, but as a half body shot for Bran https://www.imdb.com/name/nm3652842/mediaviewer/rm1159602944

Thanks for all the help. I have updated Bran's image.

I have been playing with the idea of adding a tenth option showing a dragon with the word dracharys to reflect extreme dissapointment. But I'm not sure if that would be very different from option 5. Also, that might require an equivalent for an extreme satisfaction with the ending.

FYC,

Dan Hildebrand And Now His Watch Is Ended, Game of Thrones
Dracharys, that was the worse ending ever, this finale really made me hot-headed or burned me!

Richard Brake Game of Thrones, Hardhome
Wow, that was the best ending ever, I never been more uplifted or surprised by a finale!

I like how you have them ranked on a scale from one extreme to another, then an other category at the end. The best ending ever graphic also could be some scene of jubilation or with tears of joy.

I decided against it at the end. I feel it is not different enough from option 5. But I did make some final changes.

I added Dracharys as a phrase to the fifth option of big dissapointment, I changed the images order so that Daenerys is the one that says that phrase, choosing a image where she looks surrounded by fire. And I moved Arya to the first option

I also added a link to vote on other GOT polls.

This came out well overall, nicely done. I did notice a few typos. Plus, a few other minor rephrasing or word choice edits. I think they would make it more uniform and better. I posted them below, change any you agree with.

#1 It was fantastic, the ending surpassed all my expectations.

#2 The ending was good, I expected as much from a series of this quality and reputation.

#3 The ending was not perfect, but it met most of my expectations.

$3 I am a little disappointed, I was expecting a better end for the show.

#5 Dracharys! I am very disappointed, the ending was an insult for the fans of "Game of Thrones".

#6 OMG! I'm shocked, I never saw that ending coming or expected a twist.

#7 It was an unsurprisingly bad ending, the show went wrong ever since it departed from the books.

#8 The only "Game of Thrones" ending I care about is in the "A Song of Ice and Fire"  books.

#9 Indifferent, I have never seen the series or read the books.

P.S. Thanks, I added your GoT fans may take all other IMDb GoT polls here hyperlink to my Vox populi poll.

Thank you very much for all the support and suggestions. I have done the corrections so this should be ready to be posted in time to get opinions after the grand finale tomorrow.

I see the new episodes on wednesdays so I'll wait until that day to vote.

Your welcome.

I have one final poll construction tip, you may want to take advantage of or not. I like the Tyrion image from The Spoils of War you are currently using better than than one from the upcoming episode, Episode #8.6. However, if you use the other image https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6027920/mediaviewer/rm1396401408 from the finale episode, you should see more traffic and gain a voting advantage. You will be the featured poll on the final episode page, prior to it likely receiving 150,000+ votes and likely double or triple that in page views. Plus, it would be appropriate to be on that page, given the topic is the ending of "Game of Thrones".

I also preffer the current Tyrion image. However I added a link to the last episode in the description to benefit from the extra exposure.

Yes, I forgot about that was another way to go, it should update to "The Iron Throne" from Episode #8.6 (2019) soon.

FYC, TV need to be capitalized or spelled out.
The Game of Thrones finale, The Iron Throne has finally arrived.  It signals the end to one of the most acclaimed TV series of all-time with one of the most anticipated endings in television history.

Have you seen the ending already? You're probably the biggest Game of Thrones fan in the board. It would be interesting to know how you felt about it.

That seems to be a growing opinion. For me episodes 3 and 4 of this season have been the worst of the whole series. The last one went a little bit better, but things seem out of pace and happening too fast without proper justification.

I mean if you just compare the first 5 seasons of each show; I would say more people would side with GoT. We are just lucky AMC knows how to handle their popular shows and end a series when it is time. 

Honestly with hindsight being 20/20 HBO should have just green lit the prequel after season 6, so George would have more time to finish the last book.

'Good poll and really good images. 

I'm not completely sure what this part of the intro means, though: With Episode #8.6 (2019), one of the most acclaimed tv series and more expected endings in television history has finally arrived.

Do you mean "With Episode #8.6 (2019), one of the most acclaimed tv series' and most anticipated endings in television history has finally arrived."

This is one of those perfect examples of how English is such a strange and unnecessarily difficult language. It's amazing how good your English is, especially considering that it's not your first language. Some other languages, like Spanish, make so much more sense, yet my Spanish is still so terrible that it's embarrassing. : )

Well, the BIGGEST and the BEST TV Series to ever air has come to an end. To be honest, i was really disappointed by the ending. The final season didnt seem to be a part of GoT. After 7 perfect seasons and then waiting two years, we got this, the so-called bittersweet ending. There was only bitter in it, REALLY. I don't think there could have been an ending that could be satisfying but it definitely could have been better than this. When i started watching game of thrones, I thought I wouldn't be able to watch the finale without tears in my eyes. Boy was I wrong! The finale felt EMPTY with absolutely no emotions. I mean Jon killing Dany was huge but it didn't feel like it cuz the disappointment took over. Really sad it had to be this way. The best show messed up by bad writing.
I guess nothing is perfect and neither is GoT. However, it did give us the best 7 seasons and an amazing time and for that, it will be remembered by generations. It's gone and its watch has ended and we shall never see its like again!

I was a little disappointed in the ending but I was more annoyed with The Long Night and The Bells episodes. Those were more a slap to the face.

I liked the final episode, and I think it was a worth ending to the tv series. I didn't like how we reached that last episode. Starting in The Long Night and ending with The Bells things were rushed, and suddenky not really exciting. They were in a hurry to get to the end and it hurt a lot. But this final episode corrected some wrongs and it is undeserving of the 4.3 it has as a rating. Once the hate goes away it will be better regarded.
