Yesterday (November 6) I reached a new milestone of IMDb Polls by earning 900,000 votes from the 329 polls that I have created so far.

I started creating IMDb Polls on September 1, 2014 and it took 1,162 days to earn that amount of votes.

I thank the whole IMDb Universe for this achievement of mine and specially the following people whose support and contribution put me on this stage:

1. Dan Dassow - My inspiration.

2. Team Beta42 (Suzy, Gigi, Pibby, Danny and the Past Members) - Thank you for selecting those 329 polls to publish. Without your action this wouldn't have been possible.

4. IMDb Editors - For featuring my polls on IMDb Home Page and Facebook & Twitter Pages.

5. The Voters - Thanks for showing interest to my polls and voting.

6. Sir H. B. Seigal - For founding the IMDb Poll Community. We miss you badly.

7. Sir Col Needham - For founding this awesome company.

Thank you.

Well, congratulations first. That's remarkable!

While there's no doubt that it's the whole process of creating polls and collecting votes that lead up to that result, and on that level, your work and dedication certainly deserve to pay off but that it took you four months to go from 800.000 to 900.000 speak a lot about the power of the homepage.

One homepage poll is a guaranteed 10.000 votes, so 10 homepage polls is a guaranteed 100.000 votes at least. Of course, no other user can dream of having 10 homepage polls in 4 months. That's your privilege and I wouldn't be surprised that you'll reach the million mark in three months. I take the bets.

This is not to spoil the joy, I actually thought you were at 950.000 already and you'd celebrate the million mark soon, but it's just to highlight the fact that it's not a matter of how many polls getting chosen but how many getting in the homepage.

The homepage is the real stuff when it comes to the polls, it has always been that way.

Don't get the wrong idea, man, I wasn't trying to audit your polls results, the point was: no one should overestimate the difficulty of garnering the most votes, the trick is just to get the poll in the homepage.

That said, I was just counting in average, some polls will make less than 10000 votes, some will make more, but look at your results, you have 6 homepage polls and a total that we can consider very close to 60000.

Now, the rest of the 40000 votes will come from the other polls, if you consider that each  active poll (related to visited boards) gets a maximum of 5 votes per day, in 4 months, we have 600 votes, which means for 100 still active polls, 60 000 extra votes. So the polls give you enough rope to climb the mountain but the homepage really boosts it.

Enjoy your 9-lucky day:

90% (?) of messages on GS are about Polls
Does IMDb make more money with Polls
than with Contributions of Titles, Names, Plots, Bios, Reviews, Ratings, Trivia, Goofs, etc...
Only a few messages of those are here


oh, and the 266,164,000 messages that were posted on IMDb Boards Aug 6 2002 ... Feb 20 2017 - GONE!! - no money  there

PS. I do not do Polls
