FAQ: Key Threads - IMDb Poll FAQs Index

=========================================================

Unfortunately, there is no more recent version of this list.
I re-pushed this mainly to remind myself to as the IMDb staff about this. I also want to retain as much of hb's legacy in shepherding the IMDb polls as possible.

Important! updated 2/26/2015 - the responses may not make sense regarding providing polls for missing names and titles if they are now off this list.


Here's a list of popular titles that have no polls associated with them.
Folks, we're good on Lord of the Rings and Angelina Jolie polls for a bit.
Let's see if we can come up with some good polls for these items (and it will be the only poll on a popular page!)

If you make a poll with these titles or names, reply on this post as well as a regular "poll suggestion". thanks!

it turns out that just 'mentioning' Portlandia in the description and title isn't enough to get it linked automatically (or at all right now). We did look at this and far too many false-positives and decided not to launch it.

the linking code is pretty generous, but for instance, you mention Eddie Veder, but he's been around so our code can't tell that you meant it to reference portlandia so it won't put this poll on the portlandia page.

Ideally, we'd have a way to gather your intentions from the description or give you explicit control over this linking.

The probable way we might do this is to look for an explicit link, like Portlandia (2011) in your description.

If you want to "future proof" your polls, consider doing this now, if nothing else it makes the result page better and your descriptions more actionable.

We can't do it automatically, but we do have a labor intensive way to do it manually.

We'll need to find some way to scale this, it's definitely not going to work to have us manually bind these polls to our titles and names and characters.

But at least there's a path.

As you can see Portlandia (2011) now has your poll yrnej!
