I think that the Jaws (1975) poster perfectly epitomized the 'menacing' quality a poster strives to have - perhaps it had something to do with the introduction of the shark itself in the film but it's near impossible to look at that poster and not recall the infamous introductory scene of 'Chrissie's Last Dip'.

Elmo,

As I told you many times before - "A poster related poll must be made using the images, instead of the titles."

DC, please, you're a polite man and you know there are nicer ways to put it, it feels like you're shouting at a little boy who disobeyed your orders

More seriously, I know you told me that. And I know that because the poster of The Shining on IMDb frontage isn't the same than the one most people remember and that one really does exude danger.

I wanted to pick the posters that don't have different versions, that's all... maybe I was wrong but to be honest, I'm not sure I like the tone you used in that comment.

I am sorry, if you think so. But I am not shouting. And I am not here to order anyone because I am a 25 year old guy and I respect my seniors. I am just disappointed that you don't take my advice and make your mistake again and again.

These are basic and modified poll making rules. I have seen you made many poster related polls before using titles, but those are old times. Now the time and rules have changed. I am here to help people. Because I see many of us old poll board members don't follow the basic rules these days.

For example:

Jen's poll How Low Will You Go?.

The poll is not directly related to the titles and in that case the poll should be made using the posters of those titles.

I clearly remember HB Seigal sir made this particular rule before leaving IMDb. But as you can see, nobody cares.

But I know the difference between a poster and a title related poll, I knew I should have made an image polls, I just went for the lazy solution... that's all, if the poll doesn't get picked because of that, that will serve me.

But I disagree with you when you say that I made that mistake again and again, when did I ever do that in the last couple of years?  Besides, if I recall correctly, we discussed this issue in a character-related poll and the idea was to make it an image poll so we're sure that we'll get the Joker or Hannibal Lecter we want.

So, I appreciate your help, but I know the rules when it comes to image posters. However, if you feel that any of my polls has the potential to be on the homepage, feel free to tell me what the problem is,, keeping in mind that I'm aware of the guidelines.

I agree it's not worth to "fight", but I don't think IMDb editors are that strict when it comes to guidelines, I believe they just pick a poll they like and thats it, 's let's not be more royalist than the king. By the way, congrats for the homepage poll, I wish I could have that satisfaction sometimes the next decade. :(
