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.

I'm also suggesting two new categories:

Remake:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/mefDd4cDqPs/

And names for polls about people with a common name:

https://www.imdb.com/poll/Hv6swNoPA3I/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/QpjTtn7VeUw/

https://www.imdb.com/poll/qpVmergbw0o/

By the way Dan, I have never asked if you preffer me to give you my feedback in another format, or if its allright for me to post the links as I've been doing, is something else is easier for you let me know.

Pencho15,

Thanks again.

The format you are using for the polls is great. It allows me to view the polls then update the list. I have my list indexed both by title and link to the poll, so its simple to find each of the polls.

I added all of your suggestions. In most cases, what you suggested was absolutely obvious; I remember thinking why didn't I see that for many of the polls.

I added your two categories:
Remake
CommonFirstNames

We currently have only 1,559 polls to categorize (zxNoCategory).

Dan, this poll is listed in MCU, but it should be on StarWars https://www.imdb.com/poll/enixQxbha64/


Also two new categories suggestions: SNL for Saturday Night Live Polls like this one https://www.imdb.com/poll/heO_Jdw3XMA/ (which by the way, is yours and it needs a repush since it lost one image)

and IndependentFilms for https://www.imdb.com/poll/jF-TDQJ_Y98/


Also I saw you have a category called Performance and another called Performances, I think they should be merged, there is no difference between them.

Same case with Indian and IMDb-India-Spotlight as you were inclined to do.

Pencho15,

Thanks again.
Also I saw you have a category called Performance and another called Performances, I think they should be merged, there is no difference between them.
I consolidated both under: Performances
Same case with Indian and IMDb-India-Spotlight as you were inclined to do.
According to DC IMDb-India-Spotlight are polls that are featured on IMDb's India page. Indian are Indian related polls that are not featured on IMDb's India page.

CommonFirstNames: https://www.imdb.com/poll/J4zjb0_ALDw/ (This one is actually about initials, but I think the category should be changed simply to names so it can include polls like this and also about last names).
I've changed the category name from CommonFirstNames to Names.

I added the following categories:
Bodyguard
Deaths
Iconic
IndependentFilms
Make-up
Names
Shorts

There are 1,118 polls that are not categorized (zxNoCategory).
