I was afraid someone would ask me that...😃

OK.

@Jessica 

It would be nice to give their names. In the square view of the poll-image-crop, #12 isn't good to see. Just the back of the left one is visible. But what about that one?:

Hole in the ground.

I lost it's name, but didn't see those movies for about 10 years or something like that. But anyway no Star Wars fan would leave it out. It's one of the dominant monsters in the story of episode 6. It's not only decoration, but necessary for the story. I just didn't like that it was modified with CGI. I like the old copies more than the revised.

>, #12 isn't good to see

Indeed, unfortunately I checked again and it is the only image available in the gallery and those "gerbils" are kind of cute...🐀

>Hole in the ground.

yes , that giant worm is really important. I added it, now I must decide which critter to remove...

Thanks.

Mario,

Unfortunately, your list has 36 choices and polls can have a maximum of 35 choices. You will have to remove one of the choices from your list.

Done, all 35 creatures named.

FYC, My suggestion is to limit the poll's scope to non-sentient species only. Jawas, Caretakers (Lanai) and Ewoks are all sentient beings like humans. Klaud (Trodatome) and Babu Frik (Anzellan) are individuals that belong to sentient species and likewise should be removed. Otherwise, the answer pool seems like a mixed bag. When classifying and comparing alien lifeforms, sentience is usually the first question one wants answered.

Non-sentient 'Star Wars' franchise creatures

See list @ https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Star_Wars_creatures

Colo Claw Fish

Corellian Hound

Dactillion

Dewback

Fambaa

Gelagrub rm421542400

Massiff

Mustafian Lava Flea

Mynock

#10 Varacytl (better pic) rm3761125888

@urbanemovies 

sorry, I saw your reply just now.

Thank you for your feedback and explanation. I agree with you, Babufrik is even a personal name.

I added 4 creatures: Dewback, Gelagrubs, Colo Claw Fish and Corellian Hound.

I removed 4 creatures: Jawas, Caretakers, Klaud and Babu Frik. 

I kept Ewoks and put them in the 1st position, just because I think they are extremely popular. I am aware that they are sentient creatures.

I'll ask for a re-push now. (@dan_dassow @rubyfruit76 ) It's a lot of change, let's see if it can be done.

One more thing: I changed the Varacytl image with the better one, you suggested.

Also done.

Sorry, I didn't post my comments sooner, but I just noticed your poll suggestion tonight. Once, your poll went live, so did the opportunity to change the order and make big changes.

It probably best to return it to its original slate of options in the same order, especially since you want to keep Ewoks. The whole sentinent and non-sentient becomes irrelevant.

The only two changes I would still request now are the image change and spelling change.: #10 Varacytl (better pic) rm3761125888 and #18 Opee Sea Killer (spelling).

Hi Mario, I left a note for you in the re-push request thread regarding your request. We can't re-push it as it is right now but would be happy to repush it a.s.a.p. after a few changes are made. (Two of your requests could damage your poll.)

Ok, thank you, now I know the technical rules.

I just have two questions, first one is: is it possible to do reverse engineering? I mean, can you copy the live poll and paste it into my list? (Reverse-re-push)

Mario,

Sadly, there is no way to automatically recreate a list from a poll (i.e. reverse push a poll). Also, there is no way to upload a list.

Do not delete the list which was used to push your poll. A poll can only be updated using the original list.

It's better to keep the poll lists in general, even though your list-list may become a little confusing. But maybe three month later someone mind finds a typo which can not corrected then. But not only that. I made the experience that images often vanish in older polls. It's nearly impossible to restore them without the same list as the original poll list. At the beginning, I changed the poll lists after the poll has gone live. But then there were additions to one of them which was not possible, because the poll has to stay the same until intended changes should happen. So I let the lists stay as they are after they had come live. It causes less troubles. ;)

But you can copy the intro of the life poll and re-create the list - which might be a bunch of work!

👍

last question: is it possible for you admin to correct one typo directly onto the live poll? (without me having to re-push it)

Mario,

Only the original author of a list and poll can edit a list and poll respectively.

ok👍, one bonus question:

is it only me, or using the IMDb mobile app it is not possible to access the LIVE POLLS of the day? Only the Editors' Picks Vote Now poll?

Mario, I'm sitting on my computer and I'm able to enter the site with the polls.

I always do by PC, so I'm more flexible. Beside I can check mails,  watch movies, and things like that.

It is just a hunch, but I would guess that 3/4 of young poll takers access IMDb through mobile phones...

I got a mobile, but don't want to get too addictive to it. My life should not depend on my Smartphone, although I know that many people have their whole life in their smartphones. When they lose it they're really **ck** *p. Maybe I'm very retro. Call me oldie, but I don't like that.

Mario, if you still want to change the other things about the poll, just let us know on the repush request thread when you've changed the list to something that we can safely re-push. : )
