Just noticed on one of my older polls, an image option just went blank.  There's no pic, just that outline of a head.  And the image is simply gone from my list of it! Why?

That happens. Images get reported and removed.
You'll have to find a replacement image, and put it in your original list. Then ask for a re-push.

Sometimes OK Revisions
* Missing/weak descriptive text.
Important! Do not change the feel of the poll. If your poll was for favorites,it must stay that. If it's a worst poll it must stay that. Does this make sense? Otherwise you're changing historic votes. That is bad karma. Adding alittle color or description that keeps the feel of the poll is ok.
* Changing A Poll Title
Mostly discouraged, except for adding a question-mark if appropriate.
* Updating a Poll Due to New Information.
A new creditable entry, not due to an oversight comes up (e.g. a new release).We would generally discourage this if the poll has more than a few hundred votes. You maybe should consider a new poll?
* Fixing a image for character polls
Very Rarely OK Revisions
* Deleting a Choice
* Re-Arranging and Order of A Choice
* Re-pushing to Replace Valid Options Without Votes
These used to be impossible, but they are rarely OK. It is allowable in the case they do NOT affect any live votes and the duplicate choice and ALL items following it in the list have ZERO votes. If you have any doubt, please post to your original thread before making this change; if you do it incorrectly, you will never be able to update your poll again!

Be a good idea to read the whole FAQ topic.

One of the downsides to creating polls based on image lists is that IMDb may delete one or more of the images.

I recommend editing the list upon which you based the poll and ask for a re-push.

The order of the poll and the list must be the same. Do not delete choices.

Okay, thank you!  I will see if there's a proper image for it, and if not I'll just go from there!  :)
