Is there any way to know which titles have never been featured in a poll?

I remember years ago IMDb member HB used to periodically request polls related to popular titles that had no or little live polls associated with them.


My question is if, today, do we have anyway or learning which titles have little or no polls in which they are featured so we can maybe think on polls that involve them?

B. TITLES NOT-YET-FEATURED IN A POLL

Since there are (as of 03 Jan 2018) 5,526,823 titles and 9,049,332 names in the database, less than 1 out of 300 titles and less than 1 out of 1,450 names have ever appeared in a poll.

  don't make public (as downloadable files) either STARmeter, MOVIEmeter or Popularity ranks, so unless you think of another strategy, the only thing I can do for the time being is taking the complete list of titles, sorted by descending number of votes (as a subrogate index of "popularity"), and filtering out the titles which we now know (see above) have already been part of a poll.

I hope you find this info interesting...


Uff, there's been too much statistic work for the last 2 weeks... I haven't submitted anything to this year yet (in terms of contribution items) because of all the recent analysis... and I think I need a rest... and some sleep...

Cheers!!

Tremendous work!
Thank you, ljdoncel, Champ

An aside effect is in understanding that the code-writers hired by IMDb sleep well while the free contributors beavering ))

hat a marvelous and complete work, a tremendoues effort, and it turns out to be both useful and quite interesting. It would be fantastic if your method could be used by IMDb to have this stats updated from time to time.
