Please change "Poll Suggestion" to "Live Poll" in the discussion thread title and change the settings so that it appears under "Praise" now, rather than "Idea."

one image is missing, what do I do? Just substitute slot#4 with a new image and re-push?

This is too late to add. Consider these as early suggestions of your part 2 list. Sherlock Holmes arch enemy Prof. Moriarty and his gang.

and the deatheaters too. Here is a nice big picture of all of them together! https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1201607/mediaviewer/rm258127873/?ft0=name&fv0=nm0000146&ft1=image_type&fv1=still_frame

@dgranger

Thanks. But I suggest not doing that too often once your poll goes live because if it is on the front page, a repush pushes it off the front page. That is why I don’t often ask for a repush once a poll goes live. I advise you to be scarce with them too.

@dgranger I mean with asking for a repush, not polls. Please do more polls. Plenty of polls. The more the merrier please.

What do you mean? Do you mean the Home Page?

Yes. It happened to me. There is story behind that.

Oh, I didn't know. Which poll was it?

I forgot the name of it. It was one of my early ones and back in the days when the IMDb had message boards for each film. The story has a lot of suspicious coincidental factors but nothing to prove anything. 
I had a poll that was selected for the home page for the first time. Then a guy, who didn’t take part in the discussion before the poll went live, but he did have a poll that went live the same day mine did, posted a good suggestion and suggested that I ask for a repush. And I did. When I had checked the home page again, mine was off and his was on. That is why I say be very careful and scarce with asking for repushes. Do it for only really good reasons and save any after the poll went live suggestions for the next part 2 poll.

I, myself, realized that I had missed 2 really good suggestions for my not really scary ghost stories list: “The Canterville Ghost” and “I Married a Witch” (two of the witch characters are actually spirits/ghosts in created bodies). But I’m I going to ask for a repush? No! I’m saving them and “The Corpse Bride” for a part 2 list.

I see. I believe you, though it seems odd that the reason for removing your poll is that you had it re-pushed..

Based on DC's Home Page poll thread, it was probably this one:

I think it was my which female make agent would you send in to save Bond? That is still one of my favorite polls. Might do a part two on that. But let us get back to the topic of this thread.
I got another suggestion for mariojacobs. Remember this is a suggestion for a part 2 list!!!!!!! Does anyone remember the old “Man From U.N.C.L.E.” And “The Girl From U.N.C.L.E.” tv series? T.H.R.U.S.H. which stands for “Technological Hierarchy for the Removal of Undesirables and the Subjugation of Humanity”. If that doesn’t scream evil, what does?

thank you for your suggestion, 👍

I took a look at

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0057765/mediaindex/?ref_=tt_mi_sm

but since I have not watched the series I could not choose an image. Could you pick an image that represents   T.H.R.U.S.H. ?

I see. That was a character poll published before DC started his Home Page poll thread, which is why it's not listed.

Anyway, even though it did happen to you once, we can't really say it's a general rule. Re-pushing shouldn't be avoided when it's needed.

The trouble is finding a group photo of T.H.R.U.S.H. agents which is rare. I opt for groups photos which would definite say organization. (There are group photos of SPECTRE even though Blofled is the face of the organization.)

Almost every episode has a THRUSH agent. Here are two:

Victor Buono: Colonel Hubris

And

Elsa Lanchester: Dr. Agnes Dabree (Left)

@Jessica I completely agree. I just say use them sparingly and with good reason.

@dgranger, @mariojacobs and @Jessica,

The software for publishing a poll on the IMDb Home Page has changed over time. It's quite possible that re-pushing a poll could have affected a poll appearing on the IMDb Home Page, but currently re-pushing a poll now does not affect a poll appearing on the IMDb Home Page.

Prior to DC keeping track of which polls appeared on the IMDb Home Page, I did not keep track of which polls appeared on the IMDb Home Page.

Given enough time and effort, one could review the history of the IMDb Home Page via the internet archive to determine which polls appeared on the IMDb Home Page:

https://web.archive.org/web/*/imdb.com

Prior to the current version of the IMDb Poll, the IMDb staff ran a version of the poll from 25 October 1999 to 20 April 2012. Only one poll was published per day and people could only vote in the poll for until the new poll became active.

https://web.archive.org/web/20150427204618/http:/www.imdb.com/poll/questions

The current version of the poll started around August 15, 2013, but was only available to a limited number of people. The current version of the poll went public September 4, 2013.

Victor Buono is one of my all-time favorite actors. He was King Tut (Batman 1966). He died at 43, unfortunately.
