Benu,

The second stage will begin next week, Monday. I think we should wait for other users to grab some of these.

I agree, one week is an ample amount of time for a first run through. It should be the standard for Globes, BAFTA and Oscars. I like the one poll per restriction, too. I posted the update because I thought it would be helpful to recap what was still available for those who have yet to select one? Well done and good job, this year has been the least chaotic award poll season ever.

I was thinking about linking of these polls when they go live. It would make sense to add link between closely related categories, e.g. Best Actor and Best Actress, or Original Score and Original Song.

Perhaps we'll also make a list of the live Oscar polls.

You and Dan please add the links to the live polls at the primary post of this thread.

Also I'll make an IMDb list of Oscar 2018 polls. We'll share the list everywhere on social media to engage more voters.

I have a suggestion that might increase interaction among Oscar polls and drive traffic from Home Page featured Oscar polls to the non-featured Oscar polls. It would provide a consolidated list and make it easier for poll takers to vote for the full slate of Oscars 2018 award polls. I suggest something similar to what I did with my Game of Thrones polls and the discuss here hyperlink, Discuss the topic or Take other GoT polls. It would link every 2018 Oscar poll with each other.

I propose doing the same except with the 2018 Oscars slate. All it requires is having all poll authors add a "Take other Oscars 2018 polls" hyperlink next to their message board link on their poll list. ie Discuss the topic or Take other Oscars 2018 polls. This needs to happen during poll suggestion prior it going live to eliminate the need for re-pushes. Then, as Oscar polls go live, the listed polls are hyperlinked back to the individual live poll by whoever maintains the 2018 Oscar poll slate list. It would make it easier for poll takers to vote the entire slate, increase votes overall and could serve as a running list of activated and non-activated Oscar 2018 polls. I set up an example using my Oscars 2018 — Best Original Song poll suggestion and making last year's Oscars 2017 — Best Motion Picture as a live poll example on the list.

If all the polls are back linked with a Take other Oscars 2018 polls, poll takers can bounce from each poll back and forth to the 2018 Oscar poll list easily and vote in every one. I think making it easy for poll takers to find and vote Oscar polls makes a huge difference, as evident by the difference a Home page placement makes over a Poll page placement in voting totals. It is as much about the lack of effort the poll taker has to put in to vote, as it is about the the higher placement visibility.

I also added a call to action at the top of the list to encourage more votes. Be heard like a member of the Academy and cast your ballot for the entire slate of 2018 Oscars Awards.

Thanks, DC

I removed last year's Oscars 2017 — Best Motion Picture as a live poll example and replaced it with Oscars 2018 — Best Cinematography on the list. I have no problem making the example list I created the actual real one. I will update it daily as polls go live. It should be effortless, if everyone fairly soon adds the hyperlink to their poll suggestions or at least prior to them going live.

ie.Discuss the topic here or Take other Oscars 2018 polls.

Again, the format for the hyperlink is as follows and should be placed right after your discussion hyperlink.
 or [link=http://www.imdb.com/list/ls021216429/]Take Other Oscars 2018 Polls[/link]

Thanks, it was your idea. I just added a twist and executed it.
