Format of the Polls
Title: Emmys 2020 — [Name of the Category]
Description: Which of the nominees of [link=tt11640058] for [Name of the Category] do you think should win?

Please initially limit your poll suggestions to one major category and one minor category to allow other poll authors the chance to suggest Emmy 2020 related polls. If someone has not created a poll for a category after one week after the announcement, that category is open to everyone.

Award polls, such as the Emmy 2020 polls, are a good opportunity for new authors to learn how to create, suggest and mature polls. When a new author suggests the same poll as an established poll author, we will give consideration to the new author and ask the established author to defer to the new author. We will also list both poll pending poll suggestions as appropriate.

Please do not make lists and discussion threads until the nominations are announced? It needlessly clutters the board, making our jobs as admin a bit harder.

May I create polls for the following categories?

1. Outstanding Drama Series
2. Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series

Thank you.

Dan,

I don't think the author noticed my comment before creating his poll-list.

And seeing how he has fewer polls and votes than me, I let that category go.

I've re-made the poll for another category, one major and one minor.

1. Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series
Poll Suggestion: Emmys 2020 — Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series

2. Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series

Also, If someone does not create a poll for a category after one week, I can do it.

=====

Btw, I'm creating one more poll:

3. Emmys 2020 — Most Nominated Series

(I hope no one else is doing this)

Hi.
Might I have Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series?
Thanks

Note: Ed still has not had his GS suspension revoked.

Wouldn't it be a little complicated for everyone,  Ed is not able to create the post on getsatisfaction, he can't directly reply to feedback on his polls, and we can't reply directly to him here.

 This is definitely not practical for any of us.

Dan Dassow, Ed asked me to create a suggestion page for this poll, so here it is

cinephile, it's not that complicated, to be honest. I'm more than eager to lend him a hand for now, especiall considering I'm usually slacking off some major poll opportunities.

Ed has friends in every time zone.

I was too goofy and otherwise... cognitively out of it... to do it.

Also, Ed still gets email notifications so he know what's going on on the boards.

Thanks Nikolay,

Oswald and Nikolay Yeriomin (Mykola Yeromin)

I appreciate your optimist, but making polls by correspondence fits in my definition of complicated.

Especially, since we don't seem to know if the suspension of Ed is gonna be revoked (or when), I don't affirm to know what is the best solution, all I know is that doing polls by correspondence is probably not optimal on the long-run, for Ed and the board.

Cinephile, 

If two Champions, one of whom is a Poll Admin, are okay with it, why are you bi--hing?

It's not as if you are being made to do any extra work.

It is not a matter of how much work it takes, it is a matter that communication is unarguably harder.

cinephile,

I understand (and to a limited extent) share your concerns. That is why I wrote: "We are in uncharted territory regarding Ed's suspension."

Oswald,

I am OK with this so long as this does not become complicated. A mitigating factor is that Ed still gets notifications. We shall see whether this actually works.

Correction to be made to ^this^ message:
- "Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series" is listed twice.
- "Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series" is not listed.

But that's alright, they're correctly mentioned in the main post. Please only remove my name from the categories I requested.
