Thread Title: PS: Spencer Tracy Tribute - Favorite Movie Character
Thread to be Deleted: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/ps-spencer-tracy-tribute-favorite-movie-character
Reason: Active poll suggestion for three years and doesn't seem likely to be published. Poll suggestion needs to be converted from a character to an image poll suggestion, it is not worth the time and effort to do so.

Thread Title:PS: Bette Davis Tribute - Favorite Movie Character
Thread to be Deleted: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/ps-bette-davis-tribute-favorite-movie-character
Reason: Active poll suggestion for three years and doesn't seem likely to be published. Poll suggestion needs to be converted from a character to an image poll suggestion, it is not worth the time and effort to do so.

Thread Title: South Korean Made Olympic-Caliber Movies
Thread to be Deleted: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/ps-south-korean-olympic-caliber-movies?
Reason: i was asked to create a more dissimilar suggestion to close the Olympics by a poll administrator. That poll suggestion went onto become Live Poll: Favorite Movie With South Korea as a Backdrop? This poll suggestion while more current and expansive overlaps this poll on South Korean films :https://www.imdb.com/poll/KVmJJgVaeDI/, therefore it is unneeded.

Thread: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/poll-suggestion-face-off-gta-v-in-game-movies

Reason: The poll idea is 2 years old. I think this one wouldn't go live any more. The game is old.

Not a deletion request, but I was reading the rules, and I think and update is required in point three:


3. At this time these are the only requests from original authors that will be honored: duplicate threads, duplicate suggestions or personal information was posted.


It has been a long time since threads are deleted for many reasons besides those mentioned in the rule. Most of them for a lost of interest by the original author or for the suggestion becoming untimely.

Would it be a good idea to reflect this in the original rule?

Pencho15,

It seems like a good idea to reflect current accepted practice in rule #3.

Does it depends on us or do we have to take it to IMDb staff consideration?

Pencho15,

I haven't forgotten about your suggestion. The holidays have intervened to allow less time to devote to the polls.

I will update when I have the presence of mind to do so.
