Don't forget to add the dual hyperlink at the bottom like on your Oscars 2018- Best Foreign Language Film poll suggestion. the ideal format is:
After voting, please discuss here or Take other Oscars 2018 polls.

Fyi, you need to fix your title Oscars 2018- Best Foreign Language Film
from Oscars 2018- Best Foreign Language Film
to Oscars 2018 - Best Foreign Language Film
(add a space and use the longer dash, cut and paste if necessary)

I've got Short Docs (below). If no one wants to do Live Action Shorts, I can do that, as well. If a new author wants it but can't access the titles, I can let them know how to do that. Thanks for keeping track of all of this, Dibby and Urb!

DC,

The Vote the Entire IMDb Oscar 2018 Award Poll Slate hyperlink list is now complete and has been active the past week with about 5000 hits so far. I added a section dedicated to recent Oscar related polls, but for formatting reasons had to alter some of the titles on the hyperlink list.

I would recommend asking an admin to overlay your existing award list on this poll thread's top header post with the hyperlink version posted below. So, anyone who happens on this thread can use the list and hyperlink to vote. I also have posted a FAQ: Oscar 2018 Award Polls and Oscar 2018 Topical Polls with the two lists of 2018 Oscar polls, Oscar 2018 Award Category Poll Slate with the award polls and Oscar 2018 Award Season Topical Polls with related Oscar polls from the past five months. My hope is it will pull in some IMDb voters from the GS message board, as well as those that doing Oscars internet searches in the coming week.

I think we have an opportunity to promote the fifty or so polls as a group. I also know you have in the past promoted polls on social media. I recommend promoting the one-stop Oscar poll list on social media as a way to increase interest and votes in IMDb polls.

There is already a link to your list in the first post. Otherwise, this thread is a list of suggestions, and we don't need two different threads and lists of the live polls.
