Brad,

It's a little early for Halloween related polls. It also would help to have suggestions from established poll authors.

If you have other polls you can suggest them in different threads.

I'm not sure how to send private messages here but I have another question. So how do you keep track of how many votes your poll got? Is it displayed anywhere?

Brad,

IMDb's Get Satisfaction site does not have a means to send private messages.

Best Movie to Have Been the IMDb Top 250 #1 has the most votes.

I think you should keep this idea in stand-by mode for Halloween, it is very unlikely that such a poll would be picked at the peak of summer season :) You'd have better chances with :
Best Film To get You in Summer Mood

It is a small film but it gets you ready in the holloween mood for heavier stuff. But don't be fooled by the innocent looking beginning. This film has a few good shocks in it. "Lady In White".

Hm, I liked Trick 'r Treat, and it's a good film with a Halloween setting. So that one? Though the scariest film, if that's what you wanted, I've seen is the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

Hi Brad,

Congratulations on your first live poll. You are not required to do anything.

However, if you wish to improve the chances that your poll is chosen for the IMDb Home Page, you could change the title of your list to:
Which Film Gets You Into the Halloween Mood?

... and ask for a re-push in this thread.
FAQ: Poll Authors - Re-Push Requests

Please note: There is no guarantee that your poll will be chosen for the IMDb Home Page if you update the title of your poll.

Ok, I'll do it for my account. Do I ask for a title change on that thread or will I need to make a new one? I know you said only an administrative assistant can do that.

Brad,

This is what you would post in the thread. Since, you've already edited the title of your list, it is clear you wish this to be done. I have already re-pushed your poll. There is no need to post this yourself. The poll now has the properly capitalized title.
Poll: Which film gets you into the Halloween mood?

Poll Title: Which Film Gets You Into the Halloween Mood?

Poll URL: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls020311130/

List URL: http://www.imdb.com/poll/Rt8c1ViuT4A/

Reason: Fixing capitalization in title

One last thing. I was looking at the other polls and my doesn't seem too show up like the other new ones do.

Does the repush not count it that way? I'm still trying too get the hang of polls. It's still getting votes, but I'm curious.

brad,

I'm assuming that you are referring to the list of polls that I produce on a weekly basis.
I generally update this list every weekend. The last time I updated the list was on October 20, 2017. Your poll should appear on this list the next time I update the list.

Polls:
By Date | By Vote | By Vote and Author | By Rate | By Contention
| Hotly Contested | Alphabetical | Alphabetical by Author | Friday Face-Off
| Votes by Author | Titles Seen | Top IMDb Polls | Home Page Polls
| Summary Statistics

If you are referring to the IMDb list of polls (http://www.imdb.com/poll/), these appear in reverse chronological order that the polls go live.

Thank you for the compliment. I'm a long time user of IMDb, slightly before IMDb started as a website. I'm supporting the IMDb polls pro bono.
