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.
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.
All the Polls have 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"

FAQ: List of Polls Alphabetical Within Category
by Dan Dassow, Champion
- - -
Maybe make a different section
so Polls are not mixed with the Q&As etc...
with a list of polls by category
? ? ?
and what is -list[settings][type] needed for ??
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.
-IMDb (for example, polls like this: https://www.imdb.com/poll/uS91Bs-QyYg/?ref_=po_re)
-IMDb Poll Board Picks (perhaps combined with above "IMDb")
-Old or Classic Movies
-Political (for example: https://www.imdb.com/poll/uudKCAvTyok/, https://www.imdb.com/poll/9g-FF3NcPUc/, https://www.imdb.com/poll/fzcMAKcadPs/)
-Art and Literature (films adapted from books; poetry polls; polls about titles; polls about artists; polls about movies based on paintings; polls about posters inspired by paintings; etc.)
Dan, from your uncategorized polls I think you can categorize this one in existing categories:
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/
Lord of the Rings: http://www.imdb.com/poll/gs7usYeAiTc/
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?
However you could add this one in the Indian category: http://www.imdb.com/poll/G5AtEV7BQ5A/
The following polls probably belong in the LotR category:
I'm checking poll by poll here are the ones I've placed in categories:
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?
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:
Arts and literature:
Critics:https://www.imdb.com/poll/1TQKumw0tH4/ (This is the closet suggestion I found for this one, it refers to reviews and ratings but with a broad view of the category it may fit here)
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.
This two are not closed but removed:
And the rest I categorized are:
Arts and Literature:
I have seen X-Men film in both MCU and Superhero categories, so depending on where do you wat to add them there are these two:
I would also suggest two new categories:
Festivals for this one:https://www.imdb.com/poll/s8Sh3REaKgQ/
and Documentaries for these:
And finally you could rename Razzies as Badfilms, in whcihc case we can include this poll:https://www.imdb.com/poll/kyzFEKsoJrc/
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.
Here is a new group including all polls without categories from X to Z
This one has been removed
These fit UserDemographics:
I'm also suggesting two new categories:
And names for polls about people with a common name:
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.
Here is a new group of suggestions:
This poll is Closed:
And these fits the following categories:
https://www.imdb.com/poll/EO2C408AITY/ (its about influential women that deserva a place in a dollar bill, but since its her role in history what's taken in consideration then I think this is its place, it probably should be closed by now).
https://www.imdb.com/poll/lSMt9QwmOsc/ (This was a very discused poll when it was published by the IMDb editors without even writing a question. It is the list of favorite movies of someone at IMDb staff so I think this is the only place were it can fit).
This poll should also be in the IMDbPollBoardPicks category:
And I think these polls that are currently in the Poll Board category, probably belong in the IMDb category instead:
