Hi,

When I am using IMDb on web browser, I am getting the following poll on home page:


Best Marvel Cinematic Universe Villain





But when I am using the IMDb App, I am getting a different poll on home page:


Favorite 'Water' Movie





Can you please put same poll on every platform of IMDb, so that the poll reaches to maximum people and the poll gets a handsome amount of votes?


Thank you.

I have started using the app this week and didn't have the app before that.

From you Peter I got to know about the different polls at different platforms.

And that was the first time, so I thought maybe a app development going on. But after that this is the first time the two different polls have been featured again.

That's why I am reporting since this is a regular issue now.

And I am pretty sure that when my VR poll was on the home page a different poll was featured on the app. Because it got only 2,400 votes in 2 days staying on home page. Where it should get at least 6,000 votes it it got featured on both the platform.

After getting removed from home page, I guess that is the time when it was featured on IMDb App.

If a poll gets featured on home page and doesn't get the proper amount of votes which it should, everyone including I do not like the situation.

Because having a home page poll is really tough as the competition has become tougher than before. Then you get a home page poll and gets only half amount of votes, that really breaks the heart.

=================================

What would you do if suppose your 'Most Anticipated Movie' poll gets featured on home page for 4 days and you get less than 10,000 votes where you should have got a 20,000???

Hi Dibyayan - thanks for raising this to our attention. There was an issue with the Marvel poll flowing through to the apps; we've fixed that issue, and you should see the poll on the Android app.

Dear IMDb Editors,

The similar case is happening again.

IMDb Desktop - SAG 2019 — Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture






IMDb App - Movies at 50 in 2019






The "Movies at 50" poll was featured on IMDb Home Page (Desktop + App (maybe, because I don't use the IMDb App much)) from January 11 to January 15. Today, I was checking the app and found out the poll is still showing there.
