FAQ: List of Live Character Based Polls Recast as Image Based Polls

It is not usually clear whether a poll suggestion is a new suggestion or a character based poll recast as an image based poll. Please use this thread to provide information for these character based polls.

Please provide this information for your new image polls based on live character based polls. These polls may have the same title as the existing live character based polls. They will be treated as any new poll suggestion.

Updated (20-May-2018):

1. IMDb has completed removing the character based polls and associated lists.

2. To aid your effort in identifying your character polls, I’ve created this list of 843 character polls as of 8-Nov-2017. The polls are sorted in descending order of votes on the first tab and by author on the second tab.
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1PJNRJC2Ld-0_yzPjCExQr0Q7R_-ApAGP/view?usp=sharing
or
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1LV_vFEXD9tg90B-Ko5pPJbtVUgjwizrPGZf1MS0Udtw/edit?usp=sharing

3. Re-cast polls will be treated essentially as new polls. As such, there is no need to exactly recreate the character based poll as an image list and poll. At the discretion of the author, they may rearrange the order of the choices in the poll and add and/or remove choices as they deem appropriate. Authors may also make other changes at their discretion.

4. If the previous title does not meet IMDb’s style please update to ensure the title is properly capitalized.

5. It is probably not a good idea to include the vote totals in the re-cast poll. This information may be included in the associated thread for the poll at the discretion of the author.

6. Original authors have first choice in recreating a character based poll. Other poll authors may recreate a character based poll with the permission of the original author. When the original author is not active, please attempt to contact the original author for permission. Regardless, if you recreate a poll a character poll from another author, please credit the original author.

7. Recreated polls will be pushed gradually so that they do not distract from new polls.

8. There is no practical way of combine the statistics for the original poll and re-cast poll. We are not restricting authors from adding, deleting and re-ordering choices, since we would have no way of verifying that the two versions of the poll are consistent. For all intents and purposes the original poll and the re-cast poll will be treated as two separate and distinct polls.

9. This guidance will be updated as we gain experience on pushing recast polls that were originally character based.

Why is it necessary to put the link for the current character's poll list, it's gonna disappear anyway. Isn't the title enough?

ElM,

I ask for the following in the original thread. As you point out, the link for the current character poll list will lead to a poll that will disappear in less than 24 hours.

Thanks,

I was asking because I have a few re-suggestions to make, but I don't think I can make it till the 6th, I'm busier recycling the polls than cut-and-pasting the links of the original. I guess I'll just post them as new suggestions... will that be all right?

ElM,

I've archived via the Internet Archive lists, polls and results for the 316 character polls with the most votes. I've also exported the lists for the top 100 character polls. There is a good chance that information on some of your favorite polls may have survived.

If your recreated polls is close the the original poll, post the title, thread link and list link in this thread.

It may make more sense to create an entirely different poll, since the original character poll is no longer relevant or too difficult to recreate. In this case, it probably makes sense to post it as a new poll.

We are traveling uncharted territory with so many polls being removed at once. We will have to collectively think through what makes the most sense.
