Hi Brave Traveler,

Thank you for your poll suggestion. Please read:
FAQ: So You Want to Make an IMDb Poll? Here's How...
Please note: Polls are limited to a maximum of 35 choices.

How to suggest an IMDb Poll
IMDb Polls are built on IMDb Lists. Poll administrators can create polls from these lists.

You will need an IMDb account to create a list. You can also use Facebook, Google or Amazon to sign in, but it's probably best to stick with one so you don't accidentally end up with multiple accounts.

You will also need a Get Satisfaction account to post your poll suggestion here. You can also use Facebook or Google to sign in.

Create your list

1. Create an IMDb List by going to http://www.imdb.com/list/create. You can always access your lists from your profile or your list page.

2. You can choose from titles, people or images, depending on your subject. Each type of list works in slightly different ways, but any of them can become a poll.

3. Name your list. Keep your poll title short and punchy. Future proof your poll by using a title that works days, months, years ahead. Don't include the words "Poll Suggestion" here.

4. In the description field, include a clear poll question. You can also include an introduction. Check your spelling, grammar etc.

5. Add a link from the list description to your suggestion post so voters can discuss the poll. You'll have to post your suggestion (see below), then get the permalink to the thread and re-edit the description. Example:

[link=https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion...]Discuss this poll here[/link]

6. Add poll options as entries in the list. There can be any number of options from 2 to 35. You can include descriptive text for each option.

7. Make sure your list is public so other people may review it. If it is not public, the link to your list will produce a 404 (page not found) error for everyone but the author.

Post your suggestion

1. Start a new post here in the IMDb Poll community.

2. When you enter the subject of your poll, the site will search for previous posts with the same keywords. Check to see if your poll has already been suggested by someone else. Click "Post with this title" to continue.

3. Under Title, use "Poll Suggestion:" followed by the name of your list.

4. Under "Conversation Type", choose "Idea".

5. Under "Description", include the question and description from your list and insert the URL of your list.

6. Under "Related Categories", make sure IMDb Poll is selected under Services.

7. Post your suggestion.

8. Now wait and see if your poll is selected as a new IMDb Poll. Even if your poll is not selected, your post will remain on the board and other users may vote on it with their comments.

Hi and welcome to poll authoring. :)

Dan gave you the really important information so I just thought I'd say hi.

Since these series are all very recent, I would either note that or include other series from further back in TV history. "MASH," "St. Elsewhere," "The Wire," "Six Feet Under," "The Simpsons," "Dexter," and "Breaking Bad" come to mind. From your list, my vote would go to "True Detective." I know a lot of people were disappointed with the season finale, but I thought the more optimistic ending was a great, unexpected twist but circumstances were far from perfect so it was still believable and emotionally honest.

Thanks for the warm welcome!!! Means a lot! I would agree with you about the ending of True Detective. This was my first attempt at creating a poll, it is supposed to say by my own fault, since 2010, which 5 shows. So you have to picks 5 shows that have the best first season since 2010. That's the hard part and what makes this poll unique is that 5 shows like these (Fargo can be replaced by dark, bloodline, etc) it makes it a little challenging. Thanks hopefully knowing that I meant to include 2010, you appreciate it a little more in hindsight. It's just a terrible example of how to NOT DO A POLL that people can learn from that I was unaware of until after.

Narrowing it to 2010 is a good idea. Do you have any questions about making the list? I don't think this poll has been done before so it's all yours. :)

Oh, and you can mine this list for options:

It's especially helpful because it includes meteoritic scores and user scores so it's as objective as these kinds of lists can get.

Don't worry about this discussion thread so much. This isn't what the poll is made from and an administrator can edit this discussion post if necessary. The way to make a poll is to make a list and you can always edit that yourself. Making a list is easy, too, and fun. Here's how to do that:

I cant disagee with that suggestion being I messed up. I'm new and I tried to create a poll on my page and it said to come here and I just messed up and couldnt edit. its WHATS THE BEST SHOW OUT OF THESE FIVE SHOWS SINCE 2010 THAT HAD THE BEST DEBUT FIRST SEASON?? That's what the poll was supposed to be and BB would be excluded in this case. If it was extended to its premiere season, I would argue that then the shield is better in the first season. I'm a huge Vince Gilligan fan and breaking bad btw. It's a brilliant build up that explodes with a tension fueled high octane series. It takes it's time setting the tone in its world pulling the rubber bands back and then suddendly they all snap back with the writing, causing whiplash! I would say BBs weakest season is the first one actually.
