If fan made images are not allowed in the database on titles, are they allowed on polls?
Must polls have media gallery images?

Probably not.
Must polls have media gallery images?
Poll images must meet the standards for IMDb.

Regardless, your question is best answered by a member of the IMDb Editorial Staff.

Dan, maybe it is best kept here. I can point out the poll on your blogwatch.
Do not want to create an issue if it slipped by a poll board members notice.
You could post an answer here if you think it is acceptable or not. Let me know.
Thanks.

There isn't really a special set of rules for which images are allowed in polls. But if an image on the site is likely to be reported and deleted, it's probably better not to use it in a poll.

Look. I do not wish to report the poll directly to IMDb as a problem if you say it is OK to use an Image that IMDb would reject.
Clear?

The poll in my opinion needs removal based on the use of unapproved images, "UNLESS" you say otherwise.

This image is at the back I missed it. It is removable. The pollmaker knew this would happen eventually so he put the image in a safe place so that when the images were reported they would not be removed from the poll. He cheated by making it a list image. Unremovable!

Peter? Why are you defending this? Why is this person not called out?
Why is the poll this is in still live?

Care to track down  this image too.
It is the same issue.


I have reported the image and the user.

I believe it has already been taken care of.
