FAQ: List of Polls Alphabetical Within Category

I would appreciate feedback on whether this is a useful breakdown of live polls. Someone reviewing the list of polls on my blog suggested a list of polls by category. This is my attempt to address that suggestion.

This is my initial cut. I've been able to categorize about half of the polls. Most of the polls are not categorized (zxNoCategory).
I would appreciate suggestions for categories using short keywords as shown below.

Personally I don't see myself using it, but it may help others.

Something I'd love, that maybe you'd consider (or maybe there a way to do it now I just don't know about?) is being able to go to the archive list and look for polls that ran on specific days. Or at least the month and year they ran? I want to know how long ago a poll when live.

All the Polls have Lists ?

https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/-list-of-lists

Is there a way to make a List of Lists ?
I found other Lists I would like to list with one of My Lists
I do not want to copy the contents of other persons' list after they did all the work
Add by List number "ls000000000"

'Great job, Dan. I think it would be very useful. Bravo, "oh Captain, my Captain." :)

I'll try to brainstorm ideas for more categories.

So far, I've thought: independent films, non-English language films, women, "iconic"/icons, film festivals and awards (other than the Oscars and GGs)

I'm trying to think of a way to categorize  what, right now, I can only describe as creative, often humorous, out-of-the-box, often-Elmo-type polls. For instance, off the top of my head, I'm thinking of his "why did the chicken cross the road?" or my "Stewie Asks Hannibal Lecter for Tips..." but there have been many more.

FYC:

-LGBTQ
-African-American
-IMDb (for example, polls like this: https://www.imdb.com/poll/uS91Bs-QyYg/?ref_=po_re)
-IMDb Poll Board Picks (perhaps combined with above "IMDb")
-Little-known Films
-Old or Classic Movies
-Political (for example: https://www.imdb.com/poll/uudKCAvTyok/https://www.imdb.com/poll/9g-FF3NcPUc/https://www.imdb.com/poll/fzcMAKcadPs/)
-Art and Literature (films adapted from books; poetry polls; polls about titles; polls about artists; polls about movies based on paintings; polls about posters inspired by paintings; etc.)

Dan, from your uncategorized polls I think you can categorize this one in existing categories:

actors: https://www.imdb.com/poll/jyL_6AQgRp0/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/n9V4RqD1udQ/

 actress http://www.imdb.com/poll/IrmSeNDA4NI/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/hr35s7Iqu2o/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/6hNHf-1fKhA/

Directors: https://www.imdb.com/poll/U7Gj2BIZFrE/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/DOcg2qy1_LM/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/6oxyvJ_wKhU/

Bond: http://www.imdb.com/poll/YFKCcWaMdAQ/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/dovJDPheLcw/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/9vyp0KGXQzU/ and https://www.imdb.com/poll/UUsb6fU-DTk/

Music: http://www.imdb.com/poll/5c2AALGcQu8/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/jXGTo88_SG4/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/ydCZm7flZHs/,  http://www.imdb.com/poll/eXBC7Xl3ssM/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/3VKVU_SRwYw/ 

Game of Thrones: http://www.imdb.com/poll/aWz5bEGpauY/

Holidays: http://www.imdb.com/poll/Na_SrApqAA0/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/swPGj01dT9c/

ClassicFilms: http://www.imdb.com/poll/pPNTjwDdl7A/

Disney: http://www.imdb.com/poll/Vc4xqmas4B0/

Marvel Cinematic Universe: http://www.imdb.com/poll/l-FjpsmHRgo/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/E7A1DtLsfIk/,  http://www.imdb.com/poll/24LVYvzC-xQ/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/kfO2ID5csvE/

Lord of the Rings: http://www.imdb.com/poll/gs7usYeAiTc/

Quotes: http://www.imdb.com/poll/4rIL-VSrsd0/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/HCwsX-w2PaU/

Fashion: http://www.imdb.com/poll/imXO8Gm-1FI/


Perhaps Amazon should be another category: http://www.imdb.com/poll/j2kFJ9_is1w/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/pbODxTtS_DQ/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/tfVso5qXdNE/, http://www.imdb.com/poll/ZEVBUQf_MsM/

Video games also have enough polls to merit a category

Also I suggest a category for personal information about IMDb users where polls like this could fit: http://www.imdb.com/poll/9pCXyIaW0QM/and other about beautiful persons where polls like this could fit:  http://www.imdb.com/poll/nOuMQkmyOuI/ but I don't know how can they be titled


What will you do with polls that fit in two categories?


You also have two polls incorrectly categorized as Indian, when they are Indiana Jones related: http://www.imdb.com/poll/codan0vuQFs/ and http://www.imdb.com/poll/2-DTM5lDKgQ/

However you could add this one in the Indian category: http://www.imdb.com/poll/G5AtEV7BQ5A/

New category:

"IMDb India Spotlight" Polls

Which will also include all the polls created by IMDb India Editors.

Hi Dan! Great job! This could be helpful, but if some polls have overlapping category, this could be misleading if i'm looking for some specific polls

For example: https://www.imdb.com/poll/ZH3vQ-jzNHM/
this poll is in Game of Thrones category, but i'm not gonna find it if I'm search in LotR category

Or a poll like this: https://www.imdb.com/poll/1hpEZvhXPtI/
this poll is in Actor category, not in IMDb poll board category, so if one is looking at IMDb poll board category, they might miss this poll

In this case, people maybe have to think more than one category if they're looking for a complete list of poll. 

Could be better if you put polls with overlapping category in both (or more) category? But It will make the list more complicated and long. I don't know, just some thoughts. Perhaps you have better idea?

By the way I just found this poll https://www.imdb.com/poll/cJi7YRFyaxQ/ on Game of Thrones category, it should be on Marvel Cinematic Universe category, or maybe music category?
