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.

Which is your favorite Wild Tale should be in the same category as favorite chapter from Inglourious Basterds?, that is Episodic. Since they ask for your favorite vignette in an episodic film. That would be the last poll of my authoring that has not been categorized.

I am not so sure Mother should be there since it is asking an opinion on a particular film.

I am thinking that Dangerous Media could be added to the political category, after all media plays a part in everyday politics. and the focus of the poll is about its responsibility which is a more political than movie related question

I been thinking and we have categories for Short Films, Video Games and Television. Thee different mediums for titles at IMDb.

Maybe we should not think too much and also have a category called simply Feature Film.
What Do You Think of Mother! (2017)? and any other future poll dedicated to a single film and impossible to cateforize by genre could be added there.

Also, at least two of the 4 remaining polls could be there. Improbable Movie Double Features and Lesser Known but Watchable Films

Pencho15,

Feature Film seems like a reasonable category.

I've been thinking about the last two polls and I think I have a solution for them.

First, we have a category named Cinema, however there is not a clear definition about what should be included in it.Currently it only has polls with the words cinema or cinematic in the title.


However if we search for the Cinema definition it is: "the production of movies as an art or industry".
Under that definition Which four-letter word makes a film the most successful?, would perfectly fit that category.

By the way, also speaking about Cinema, I think this poll about Marvel movies should be categorized in MCU rather than in Cinema.

Then we would have the very tricky Theme Parks poll, while the obvious solution would be to create a new Theme Park category, I find that undesirable as it is very unlikely that category will ever have more polls in it.

The other solution which I think is better would be to put it under Disney. It is an existing an big category, and it is wide enough to not only consider movies but any Disney product, including its theme parks.

The solution is not optimal, as it leaves the Universal part of the face-off out of a category, but it has been done before. For example, the Face-off between Star Wars and Star Trek is categorized under Star Wars, even if that is accurate only for 50% of that poll.

If you agree with it, then this work of categorizing every poll would be finished, and I would only suggest once again to move the Mother poll from the episodic category, where it should not be to Feature Film where it belongs without question.

Pencho15,

What you wrote makes sense. I will update the list the next time I do the poll summaries.
