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.

Dan, I suggest a new category Eyes which should work as others we have like Hair.
I have found two polls that could fit here:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/isOrnVX5b54/
http://www.imdb.com/poll/hkx03oEsDB8/

Also, here is a small group of newly categorized polls, its getting harder as we go close to 100:


Acting: https://www.imdb.com/poll/WsC15ghr-4g/

Books: https://www.imdb.com/poll/TFVPRRLMBp0/

Celebrities: https://www.imdb.com/poll/EKkbCJjgJyA/

Characters: https://www.imdb.com/poll/dr5Y--SQZUg/
https://www.imdb.com/poll/oVI_YPWNjag/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/L7TrvkdAj3s/


Deaths: https://www.imdb.com/poll/8x1rp1MSG40/

Plot: https://www.imdb.com/poll/yMAaPzzb5qQ/

Television: https://www.imdb.com/poll/rldq3PR1PeY/

UserRatings: https://www.imdb.com/poll/cxqne75Y7yw/
https://www.imdb.com/poll/HFvBid66LWo/


VFX: https://www.imdb.com/poll/2Gf8iRNj6J8/

Women: https://www.imdb.com/poll/gUF5lzbJruw/


Finally, these two polls can be added to any of two existing categories. Either Color or Black and White and I saw no way of choosing one over another.

http://www.imdb.com/poll/PU9uIDUAZDg/
http://www.imdb.com/poll/E9jmfzQ06e0/

I also feel that maybe both categories could be merged into one, none of them is very high on the number of polls it has and, if you check the IMDb, Black and White is used as a category in the color information of each title.

Thanks again.

I agree, as we get close to 100, it is becoming increasingly difficult to categorize polls.

Pencho15,

Thanks again. I've updated the categories of the polls based on your suggestions.

As of 7-Mar-2018

I added these categories:
Adaptation
Chroma
Eyes
Games
Hijacked
MPAA

There are 121 polls that are not categorized (zxNoCategory).

Chroma is technical term for whether an image is black and white or color. This category now includes polls previously categorized as "Black and White".

Colors does not refer to a film image but includes items that have similar colors.

Dan, something seems to have happened to the list of polls, they are unordered and not even alphabetical.
When I click on the NoCategory link to start working, instead of the list with the 97 pending polls I get only one, and all others seem to be displayed randomly.

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.

I was thinking something similar. Here are some possible words:
- era
