Thanks for your thoughts Rocko, I feel like the voting would be fairly split with this one, some legendary people on both sides of the spectrum...

Thanks Jess :) I added hyperlinks to each of the respective hero and villains names so now, if I'm not mistaken, this poll would become part of their characters' pages?

Well, I don't think polls can be connected to the character pages, but I guess it could show up on the actors' pages. :)

'Great face-off! I'd vote for the heroes but I bet the results will be pretty close -- even with Lecter being the top villain, the heroes should still get a lot of votes. Great face-offs make me so happy -- that sounds really odd but it's true, lol. 

May I suggest one edit?

Oh, I'd also suggest changing OR to "vs." or "or:" I don't think it's that big of a deal but the editors like the poll titles to adhere to AP style guidelines just like all other titles on the site.

Thanks for the feedback Ruby; Who doesn't love a great Face-Off every now and then :) I love even more when the results are extremely close like your Brando vs. De Niro "I Could Have Been A Contender" Face-Off (they were basically tied! That's the best, in my opinion.)

Thanks, Kyle, for the little edits. Oh yeah, I love "hotly contested" polls, especially face-offs. I bet this one of yours will be really close -- it'll be interesting to see the results. You mentioning my "Could Have Been a Contender" poll made me wonder where the votes are now: It's 316 - 313 in favor of Brando -- I think that's the widest gap there's been in a long time. 

I also love great face-offs because sometimes there's a dearth of them and that makes it more difficult for poll admins so thank you, thank you, thank you! :)

Wow, 316-313 is so close! That's the sign of a well-thought out Face-Off no doubt!

I also love great face-offs because sometimes there's a dearth of them
I had no idea, if anything you'd think there'd be a lot more of them since they only require 2 or 3 options making them a lot easier, and more simple, to create. Interesting nonetheless though.

And I just saw this went live, so awesome! Excited to see the results with this one, I hope it's a "I coulda been a contender" kind of closeness :)

Update: Look how CLOSE it is Ruby! We called it :) I hope it stays as close as your "I coulda been a contender" poll but I doubt it will. Cool to see these kind of results though, I'll tell ya that.

What does that first part mean:

by_contention = Percent(1st_Choice) - (1/Number_of_choices)
This metric gives an overall measure how well all choices are competing. The smaller the number the more competitive the vote. At the minimum value of zero, all the choices have the same number of votes.

hotly_contested = Votes(1st_Choice) / Votes(2nd_Choices)
This metric compares the top two choices. At the minimum value of one, both choices have the same number of votes.

Interesting Dan, seems like a difficult thing to achieve with our polls. Thanks for the clarification, appreciate it!

Some names are unknown for me. Maybe you could add the movie titles behind the names. Then it's easier to know which character it is.

It looks like Oz spells the term differently. ;-)

The Good With of The North
The Good With of The South
The Wicked With of The West
The Wicked With of The South

On the other  hand, if you lithp and with upon a Wicked star, you might just get Idina Menzel.

So, in other words, people need to proofread their polls beforehand.
