Good news on Polls I guess

Well it looks like there are 2 Home page polls active at once in the "Editors Picks".
They seem to vary and come and go on different platforms. Random shuffling. Reloading the home page will show the shuffle effect.

Congrats to Urbane Movies and BONEFIDE BOSS for being the first pollmakers to share Home Page polls.

Good Show!

Do I detect a slight sarcasm?

I was not liking it but it might grow on me after a while

I don't see the second poll anywhere, not on the desktop version (tried different browsers), not on my mobile phone.

Sorry, after refreshing 10 times I still see only one poll in the Editors' Picks.

It was there for a short while.
I too have not been able to bring up Urbane's poll either after about an hour after I first saw the two together.

IMDb Android app shows one poll on home page.



Desktop and mobile version website got the new look. Showing more than one poll under 'Editor Pick' section and that too after scrolling side by side.

Advantage: More than one poll on home page.

Disadvantage: We can't expect a handsome amount of votes. Maximum 200-300 votes in 24 hours per poll.

Thank you so much, Ed!

But I'm not the right person to praise for being the first poll author to share (new) Home Page polls.

The first poll author whose poll was featured on the new IMDb homepage page is Stephen Atwood.

Here are the Top 3. Below are the links to their threads, (if you scroll down to the bottom you can see me congratulating them).

1. Stephen Atwood (TsarStepan) | Independent Spirit Awards 2020 — Best Feature
2. Dibyayan Chakravorty (Dibyayan_Chakravorty) | Oscars 2020 - Films With Multiple Nominations
3. Urbane Movies (urbanemovies) | Oscars 2020 — Best International Feature Film

I'm 4th (Top 5). But thank you anyway, since it's my first homepage poll and my first poll to reach 1k votes, it means a lot.

This new homepage is weird (yet understandable to a certain degree). Dark themed apps and pages are good for helping mobile users (tablets and smartphones) save battery life. But that advantage ain't needed on computers and plugged in laptops.

Once again, they design their homepage with mobile users in mind. These rows of options best suited for swiping (side scrolling) with ones fingers.

I guess they don't want to upkeep two separate homepages (for two separate sets of tech leaning viewers).
