Hey Dan, how to mention a user lol? ;)

I want to ask something before I change the title of the list.

I want to know if I can revert the changes.

I mean, if I change the title to a question, "What do you consider to be the best Gun-Fu movie of all time?", can I change it back to a normal title once the poll has ended?

Also, how did this get edited to "Praise"?



It was supposed to be an "Idea". Last time I checked, it was.

BONAFIDE BOSS,
I want to ask something before I change the title of the list.
Although you can change the title of your list back to the original title it is probably best not to do so. Polls can be updated if there is a need to do so. The list upon which a poll is based should align as closely as possible to the poll. If you need to have a list with the current title, create a duplicate of your current list.
Also, how did this get edited to "Praise"?
Once someone responds to a thread, only an admin can edit the type of thread. I have limited administrative rights and changed the type of thread from Praise to Idea.

Maybe you should add some context to the text of the new list. Maybe the definition of what the heck gun-fu is.

WHAT IS GUN-FU?
  • "Gun Fu" is a term used to describe the choreographed moves used in action films. John Wick, Equilibrium and The Matrix are some best examples to describe gun-fu movies.
The John Wick movie has the best gun-fu sequences.
  • Gun fu is the style of sophisticated close-quarters gunplay seen in action and in some Western films. It often resembles a martial arts battle played out with firearms instead of traditional weapons. It is often mixed with hand-to-hand combat maneuvers.
  • Gun + Kung fu = Gun Fu
John Wick is the best Gun-fu movie ever made.

Hi Boss and welcome to the poll board. : )

'Good idea for a poll. My vote: Django Unchained, Collateral, The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, or maybe Heat. I consider one to be the best but it's not necessarily my favorite, thus the indecision. :)

BB If you consolidate the sequels into one listing for each then you free up space for more listings. I do it all the time. More variety just means more votes on a poll!

This is a poll about movies with the most prequel/sequels etc
All you have to do is make a notation like "Includes all 'John Wick'" movies on the line provided on the list creation page.
