you point that detail out but fail to mention how this poll inherently ostracizes mixed race couples, this is disgusting

You only have a few from shows that aren't currently on, I suggest removing those and designating that the list is, indeed, only current shows. There are enough current shows to fill up the whole list, let alone shows that are off the air.

FYC:
Captain Raymond Holt and Kevin Cozner - Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Rosa Diaz and Adrian Pimento - Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Jake Peralta and Amy Santiago - Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Lena and Stef Adams Foster - The Fosters
Dong Nguyen and Kimmy Schmidt - Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Raina and Nimah Amin and Simon Asher - Quantico
Alex Parrish and Ryan Booth - Quantico
Iris West and Barry Allen - The Flash
Sunny and Veil - Into the Badlands
Toby Curtis and Happy Quinn - Scorpion
Travis Manawa and Madison Clark - Fear the Walking Dead
John Diggle and Lyla Michaels - Arrow
Katheryn and Jim Cryer - The Haves and the Have-Nots
Desna and Roller - Claws
Virginia and Dean - Claws
Ethan and Lisa Turner - Friends from College
Emma Crawford and Mark Rodriguez - Playing House

I think there are probably some on the other CW shows but I don't watch most of them.

I like this poll. I'm not sure, yet, who would get my vote, but I'd definitely vote!

I think Jen's suggestion about only current series is a good one and may I suggest a small edit? I would take the comma out of the question so it reads as follows:

Which of these couples in an interracial relationship is your favorite?

If you're interested in this poll qualifying for consideration for the homepage, the first five images would have to crop well:

#1, 3, and 4 would probably not crop well on the homepage, so you might want to switch those with others:  #14, 19, 20, and 22 seem like they would probably crop well

Akash,

It looks like you re-arranged the choices in your poll per Ruby's suggestion. However, images #4 & #5 are still look problematic for cropping. You can get a better sense of the cropping using the grid view.

Image #14 and #20 look promising.

Live Poll: http://www.imdb.com/poll/jX3AVjVXSPM/?ref_=po_fp Bravo, Akash! In terms of cropping, especially in terms of being eligible for the homepage, please feel free to request a re-push -- Dan makes a good suggestion above about switching 4 & 5 with #14 and #20.

Akash and Ruby,

ATTENTION: Please do not change the order of your choices now that your poll has gone live. This would damage the results of the poll if the poll were to be re-pushed.

There is a formatting issue with the fourth choice:

[url=ch0113547]Offred/Jane[/url] and Luke from The Handmaid's Tale (2017)

The slash between Offred/Jane is confusing the code for generating polls. I'm not certain how to resolve this problem. One possibility:
[link=http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0113547/]Offred/Jane[/link]
This should be formatted as:

Offred/Jane

Does this mean, I should change it to the unclickable Offred/Jane ?

Akash,

I notice that you already changed the option to an unclickable Offred/Jane. I will re-push your poll. We can try making it clickable some time in the near future.

Akash,

I've re.pushed your poll.

This is what you currently have for choice #4:
Offred/Jane and [link=ch0568568] from [link=tt5834204]

You could replace:
Offred/Jane

With:
[link=http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0113547/]Offred/Jane[/link]
And ask for another re-push.

For #4








And for #5

Akash,

Unfortunately, neither image is likely to crop well for the IMDb Home Page.

Your poll is fine as it is. It is a good poll, even though cropping issues will make it unlikely to be chosen for the IMDb Home Page.

It's hard to find images that crop well for polls that feature couples. Most of the images have each member of the couple positioned so that one or both of the couple are cut off using the cropping for the IMDb Home Page.

A poll suggestion that is suitable for the IMDb Home Page increases the chances it may be chosen for the IMDb Home Page, but does not guarantee it will be chosen.

First vote for Jake and Amy.

Just curious. Why is there a link to the poll in the intro for the actual poll?

Because it was re-pushed with that link. It would be good if Akash would remove the link and ask for another update.
