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.

Pencho15,

Thanks for pointing out the problem. I just corrected it.

http://mypollwatch.blogspot.com/2018/06/categories.html and zxNoCategory should now work fine.

I mistakenly sorted alphabetically then by category, instead of by category then alphabetically.

Unfortunately, some of the reports require manual effort.

I have a potential new category, but I'm not sure how can it be named.
There are at least two uncategorized polls related to time periods as settings for a movie. I'm sure there must be  word to definde that were we can put them.

Dan. this poll is about noses http://www.imdb.com/poll/o6rVlOpmxaA/ which is a topic unlikely to generate many polls. I was thinking we could have a category about physical features to have this, and it could be a good idea to merge it with eyes http://mypollwatch.blogspot.com/2018/06/categories.html#Eyes which currently only has two polls.
In a future, anything like mouths, ears, height, weight or things like that could be added here.

Aditionally, it could also be merged with hair a much crowded category that currently includes polls not only about hair but also chests, beards, moustaches and eyebrowns http://mypollwatch.blogspot.com/2018/06/categories.html#Hair

Maybe with the other remaining polls we need to check existing categories and also see if some of them can be transformed into something new to include them.

Pencho15,

My initial reaction is that we can create the new category:
PhysicalFeatures

... then include Eyes and Nose in that category.

I would rather keep Hair as it is currently constituted.

The remaining polls with a categorize may not have a natural category.

I think these two:
Vote Movies That Took Forever to Make
Vote Will These Movies Ever Be Made?
should be placed where "Anticipated" are.

And these two:
Vote What Do You Think of Mother! (2017)?
Vote What's your favorite chapter from Inglourious Basterds?
are good to start a new (if not existing) category similar to "Featured polls" or "Specials", or something alike.

There is two guys who made the titanic efforts resulted in only "20 left". It sounds too aloud to say that I suggested, it's much more FYC for two Founding Fathers ;)

It's a good idea, it should be something that allows to add polls dedicated to one particular movie that is not part of a franchise or can't be categorized on geographical or genre terms.

Which is your favorite Wild Tale could also be either there or in a category for Latin American movies.

There was also a poll about Kill Bill chapters that could be moved there

MAthePA and Pencho15,

I think these two:
Vote Movies That Took Forever to Make
Vote Will These Movies Ever Be Made?
should be placed where "Anticipated" are.
I've seen the linkage between these two polls for some time. "Anticipated" does not quite capture the sense of these two polls. Possibly one of the following would work:
LongProductionDuration
LongProductionTime
ProductionDuration
ProductionTime
And these two:
Vote What Do You Think of Mother! (2017)?
Vote What's your favorite chapter from Inglourious Basterds?
are good to start a new (if not existing) category similar to "Featured polls" or "Specials", or something alike.
Mother! (2017), Inglourious Basterds (2009), Fantasia (1940), Fantasia 2000 (1999),
Allegro non troppo (1976) and O. Henry's Full House (1952) consists of a series of chapter, vignettes or episodes.

Possibly one of the following would work:
Episodic
EpisodicFilm

they are very good to describe the whole thing, but my believe is that such polls tend to be a rare phenomena. That's why it may be better to place them to the existing category which is very close by nature (production terms) and as well by its form and meaning (the initial interest is drastically down after the event is up).

But again, it's all to your FYC, dadies, since you having the major experience for this kind of categorizations :)

It may work, but for another purposes, and may be it's the successor over my idea (you both decide please). My idea was, and it seems Pencho likes this part, that any polls "dedicated to one particular movie that is not part of a franchise or can't be categorized on geographical or genre terms" should go alltogether into one category. In other words, if you looking for a very specific poll that is deep into pecularities of a separate product (which are not for wider categories) there should be the place (category) for such polls.

Another option is having a category for anything that happens in preproduction or while filming a movie. Both polls refer to problems during the filming, but this being a broader category could also include some other things that would also be difficult to categorize on their own.
