FAQ: List of Polls Alphabetical Within Category

I would appreciate feedback on whether this is a useful breakdown of live polls. Someone reviewing the list of polls on my blog suggested a list of polls by category. This is my attempt to address that suggestion.

This is my initial cut. I've been able to categorize about half of the polls. Most of the polls are not categorized (zxNoCategory).
I would appreciate suggestions for categories using short keywords as shown below.

Personally I don't see myself using it, but it may help others.

Something I'd love, that maybe you'd consider (or maybe there a way to do it now I just don't know about?) is being able to go to the archive list and look for polls that ran on specific days. Or at least the month and year they ran? I want to know how long ago a poll when live.

If you want to know when a specific poll went live, you can switch to mobile view, which shows the date.

Example:

Thanks, Peter, this is very helpful. I update this FAQ to include this information:
FAQ: Key Threads - IMDb Poll FAQs Index

- - -

Also, I include the date and time a poll goes live in an Excel file I update periodically on my Google drive. This is the latest version.

Poll Data:Poll_Data_2018-05-31.xlsx

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1gbgrP23EbzyIDkTAFsCpqk2Bxt_FPqzm/view?usp=sharing
or

I provide a link to the latest version in FAQ: Summary Statistics

Thanks Peter - didn't know about that. But you still can't search by a date like this.

Dan, the excel page is great but I wish there was a way this worked within your Poll Watch Index.

Jen,

The size of the Poll Watch blog (https://www.blogger.com/blogger.g?blogID=3900394678511523241#allposts) entries are already large. The Excel files are the only feasible way to include all of the information you and others wish to see.

All the Polls have Lists ?

https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/-list-of-lists

Is there a way to make a List of Lists ?
I found other Lists I would like to list with one of My Lists
I do not want to copy the contents of other persons' list after they did all the work
Add by List number "ls000000000"

How can I find the list upon which a poll is base?

All IMDb polls are based upon IMDb lists. To find the list upon which a poll is based, replace "poll" with with "list" in a poll URL. If you receive a 404 (page not found) error, the author of the poll deleted the list. If the list is deleted, the poll cannot be updated.

So, in this case:
http://www.imdb.com/poll/4eyyw7SK-0s/ (poll)
http://www.imdb.com/list/4eyyw7SK-0s/ (list)
http://www.imdb.com/list/ls056959189/  (this becomes this list)

ACT_1,

Get Satisfaction was created as a help desk message board. When IMDb deprecated the IMDb message boards, they moved the Poll message board to:
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/categories/imdb_imdb_poll

We are unable to add additional conversations types beyond recent, question, idea, praise, problem and update. Get Satisfaction controls which conversation types are available.

We use the conversation type idea for poll suggestions and praise for live polls.

'Great job, Dan. I think it would be very useful. Bravo, "oh Captain, my Captain." :)

I'll try to brainstorm ideas for more categories.

So far, I've thought: independent films, non-English language films, women, "iconic"/icons, film festivals and awards (other than the Oscars and GGs)

I'm trying to think of a way to categorize  what, right now, I can only describe as creative, often humorous, out-of-the-box, often-Elmo-type polls. For instance, off the top of my head, I'm thinking of his "why did the chicken cross the road?" or my "Stewie Asks Hannibal Lecter for Tips..." but there have been many more.

Dan, from your uncategorized polls I think you can categorize this one in existing categories:

actors: https://www.imdb.com/poll/jyL_6AQgRp0/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/n9V4RqD1udQ/

 actress http://www.imdb.com/poll/IrmSeNDA4NI/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/hr35s7Iqu2o/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/6hNHf-1fKhA/

Directors: https://www.imdb.com/poll/U7Gj2BIZFrE/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/DOcg2qy1_LM/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/6oxyvJ_wKhU/

Bond: http://www.imdb.com/poll/YFKCcWaMdAQ/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/dovJDPheLcw/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/9vyp0KGXQzU/ and https://www.imdb.com/poll/UUsb6fU-DTk/

Music: http://www.imdb.com/poll/5c2AALGcQu8/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/jXGTo88_SG4/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/ydCZm7flZHs/,  http://www.imdb.com/poll/eXBC7Xl3ssM/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/3VKVU_SRwYw/ 

Game of Thrones: http://www.imdb.com/poll/aWz5bEGpauY/

Holidays: http://www.imdb.com/poll/Na_SrApqAA0/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/swPGj01dT9c/

Disney: http://www.imdb.com/poll/Vc4xqmas4B0/

Marvel Cinematic Universe: http://www.imdb.com/poll/l-FjpsmHRgo/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/E7A1DtLsfIk/,  http://www.imdb.com/poll/24LVYvzC-xQ/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/kfO2ID5csvE/

Lord of the Rings: http://www.imdb.com/poll/gs7usYeAiTc/

Quotes: http://www.imdb.com/poll/4rIL-VSrsd0/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/HCwsX-w2PaU/

Fashion: http://www.imdb.com/poll/imXO8Gm-1FI/


Perhaps Amazon should be another category: http://www.imdb.com/poll/j2kFJ9_is1w/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/pbODxTtS_DQ/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/tfVso5qXdNE/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/ZEVBUQf_MsM/

Video games also have enough polls to merit a category

Also I suggest a category for personal information about IMDb users where polls like this could fit: http://www.imdb.com/poll/9pCXyIaW0QM/and other about beautiful persons where polls like this could fit:  http://www.imdb.com/poll/nOuMQkmyOuI/ but I don't know how can they be titled


What will you do with polls that fit in two categories?


You also have two polls incorrectly categorized as Indian, when they are Indiana Jones related: http://www.imdb.com/poll/codan0vuQFs/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/2-DTM5lDKgQ/

However you could add this one in the Indian category: http://www.imdb.com/poll/G5AtEV7BQ5A/

Pencho15,

Thanks again. Most of what you suggested worked great.

I will not further categorized any poll that's been closed (zzClosed) or removed (zzRemoved).

I added Amazon as a category. One of the polls you suggested was closed. I also found a few more polls that I categorized as Amazon.

I added VideoGames as a category.
Also I suggest a category for personal information about IMDb users where polls like this could fit: http://www.imdb.com/poll/9pCXyIaW0QM/and other about beautiful persons where polls like this could fit:  http://www.imdb.com/poll/nOuMQkmyOuI/ but I don't know how can they be titled
I'm not certain what to do with this suggestion.
What will you do with polls that fit in two categories?
When a poll fits within two or more categories, I look for the best fit. If I cannot determine a best fit, I arbitrarily choose the category.

I added IMDb-India-Spotlight as a category, which DC suggested below. This category will take precedence over Indian. I removed the Indiana Jones from the category Indian.

Pencho,

DC will probably have to provide guidance on the distinction, if any. I believe that IMDb-India-Spotlight are polls that have been featured on Indian Spotlight (https://www.imdb.com/india/), whereas Indian polls are polls related to India that have not been featured on Indian Spotlight.
Even if there is a distinction, there may not be enough Indian polls to break them out separately.

I think you should proceed with merging them and just call it Indian as it was, there's not much difference and the longer name may be more confusing.

Hi Dan! Great job! This could be helpful, but if some polls have overlapping category, this could be misleading if i'm looking for some specific polls

For example: https://www.imdb.com/poll/ZH3vQ-jzNHM/
this poll is in Game of Thrones category, but i'm not gonna find it if I'm search in LotR category

Or a poll like this: https://www.imdb.com/poll/1hpEZvhXPtI/
this poll is in Actor category, not in IMDb poll board category, so if one is looking at IMDb poll board category, they might miss this poll

In this case, people maybe have to think more than one category if they're looking for a complete list of poll. 

Could be better if you put polls with overlapping category in both (or more) category? But It will make the list more complicated and long. I don't know, just some thoughts. Perhaps you have better idea?

By the way I just found this poll https://www.imdb.com/poll/cJi7YRFyaxQ/ on Game of Thrones category, it should be on Marvel Cinematic Universe category, or maybe music category?

peaspot,

Thanks for pointing out that this poll (GOTG 2 - Favorite Song From Awesome Mix Vol. 2) belongs in the MCU category. I will include this correction in the next update.

This is definitely a work in progress and there are probably quite a few polls that I've placed in the wrong category.

I fully agree that polls can fall into multiple categories. I hope to eventually allow for multiple categories. Unfortunately, multiple categories would complicate updating the list and would make a very long list even longer.

One possible solution would be to assign a poll to a primary category and include a note that the poll also falls into other categories.

For example:

GameOfThrones
...
vote Friday Face-Off : Game of Thrones vs Lord of the Rings (Also: LotR)
...

Gangster

I was just editing the list when you answered, I was about to suggest new categories, here they are:

Dan, I have continued checking all the polls, after finishing the list of polls with A I have the following suggestions to categorize polls in existing categories:


User Demographics:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/_9KzzMxp0CI/ (this one was missing in the original message for existing categories)

Plot: (For polls asking question about movies with similar plot points like:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/nHdQxNm_hzE/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/1hOSJDeBb0I/

http://www.imdb.com/poll/xIAf7_UYR6Y/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/wxjpeZfRW8k/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/wnNZSn3UfM/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/wiwfbtVZZSg/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/ptpujKLZL8c/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/RLTYjeByjgw/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/LQ5a4Bt0Db0/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/yCYuB78Herc/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/OAntGIP7ezA/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/PmYq8AOffs/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/3jRSw7X0uxM/

http://www.imdb.com/poll/aKMBd3z5Lpw/

Title: For polls that ask questions related to titles of movies or tv shows with something in common like:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/5hiIukdfHWQ/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/e_qVgxOhtuM/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/6S5VJtMtLwE/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/XZ_UH37BWYc/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/sNshyplAPwo/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/LOUn6XD1snc/

Scenes: Similar to plot, but this one dedicated to polls that ask questions about scenes (not the whole film) with something in common like:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/AHx-vM3zPcw/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/fRFOUyCBenU/

Language: It's self explaining I think:

http://www.imdb.com/poll/bvguukSU73E/

FilmHistory: For polls about milestones in film history

https://www.imdb.com/poll/--iYED4uzXA/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/R6h-5K3w7KI/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/MB_3T_ISV6c/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/cZxXWhAeSeo/

History: For historical events or persons

https://www.imdb.com/poll/Pm-Yq8AOffs/

Writing: For polls about scripts or film writers

https://www.imdb.com/poll/tLv8-aXipvY/

http://www.imdb.com/poll/rendmICsciQ/

Performances: We have actor and Actress, but there are polls that ask about performances and mix persosn from both genres, so they can be categorized here:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/XgTZmnocdYM/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/zMtFILBX-sA/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/G_o7xKZif5I/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/iQuvrz43KhY/

Productioncompany: There are categories for the big ones like Disney, but there are polls about the small ones, they all can be here and maybe the already existing categories could be subcategories of this one.

https://www.imdb.com/poll/-qP3k9oLkxU/

Costume: For polls about the costume design part of films. Currently I have only one poll, but perhaps there can be more about different parts of movie making and they all could be added to a wider category (polls about cinematography, make-up, production design etc)

https://www.imdb.com/poll/I_ScTbacduk/

Beauty: For polls asking who is the sexiest, best looking, more attractive, cutest or all kind of variations on the topic:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/HHZEQTfUe2o/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/rjzcQAfzvY0/

Age: For polls about people from different groups of age:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/S-HixSw8ytk/

Relationships: Family relations between celebrities

https://www.imdb.com/poll/l39I7YU-WJE/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/Gs1QkK1L1jI/

Locations: This is what I could come up for a poll like this It could fit plot or scenes, but I'm not so sure so I leave it for your consideration

https://www.imdb.com/poll/MXmEsdquXsw/

Africa: We don't have much polls about African cinema, but at least we have one

https://www.imdb.com/poll/gEvGhUZjjFo/

 April Fools Day:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/mSVATAP62JU/

http://www.imdb.com/poll/YhP0X4GpKQo/

Characters: Sometimes the poll is not about actors or actresses, but about a common trait in the characters they play:

A new batch of recently categorized polls for you. I checked the full list of closed polls, but most of them are not actually closed, so they don't belong there. I think only two of those that are actually open should be already closed.

and Documentaries for these:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/n2Pz2xejbjE/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/QCJmb1Vvjhw/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/VVoB_37dgwc/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/NO1Ov1DjKM4/

And finally you could rename Razzies as Badfilms, in whcihc case we can include this poll:

Pencho15,

Thanks for the feedback. I changed the categories for the polls as you suggested. I will double check the remaining polls that are marked closed to make certain they are actually closed. It's possible that when IMDb staff removed polls based on character lists they re-opened closed polls as a side effect.

I retained the category Razzie and added the BadFilms. The Razzies is a major award ceremony; I believe it deserves a category. Other polls may fall into the BadFilms category.

I looked over the uncategorized polls and thought of three more...

FYC:
women
anti-hero
location & settings

I will provide links to polls that seem to fit these categories as soon as I have a bit more time. I'm still searching for words that could be used to categorize some of the more out-of-the-box polls. Again, this is a great thing you're doing.

Ruby,

I already have Locations as a category. If I were to expand it to include settings, the category would become Locations-and-Settings.

Women and anti-hero seem like viable categories.

We currently have 1722 polls that are not categorized (zxNoCategory).

The average of votes per category is quite interesting.

I have been unable to keep working on helping you with this as I have used my time to work on my travel project and future business, Viajeros en Ruta, but I'll soon restart on categorizing those thousands of pending polls.

I'm also suggesting two new categories:

Remake:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/mefDd4cDqPs/

And names for polls about people with a common name:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/Hv6swNoPA3I/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/QpjTtn7VeUw/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/qpVmergbw0o/

By the way Dan, I have never asked if you preffer me to give you my feedback in another format, or if its allright for me to post the links as I've been doing, is something else is easier for you let me know.

Pencho15,

Thanks again.

The format you are using for the polls is great. It allows me to view the polls then update the list. I have my list indexed both by title and link to the poll, so its simple to find each of the polls.

I added all of your suggestions. In most cases, what you suggested was absolutely obvious; I remember thinking why didn't I see that for many of the polls.

I added your two categories:
Remake
CommonFirstNames

We currently have only 1,559 polls to categorize (zxNoCategory).
