Thank you. Just let me know what else I should do and are we still allowed to bump it once a day?

Besides that give me your suggestions posters. Everyone is welcomed

Brad,

In my opinion, bumping once per day is excessive, especially since Get Satisfaction allow people to search posts.

The IMDb Editors prefer the Associated Press (AP) style for title capitalization. This web app is useful for capitalization:
http://titlecapitalization.com/
Capitalize words with four or more letters (AP style)

In the case of your poll, please capitalize your title as follows:
Best Film to Get You Into the Halloween Mood?

Halloween is a proper noun. It should be capitalized. Please update your question to:
Which film gets you into the Halloween mood?

How do you edit on get satisfaction? I'll do it right now for the imdb board, it's not letting me do for the first post.

On Get Satisfaction, once someone replies to your post only an admin can edit or delete that post.

I already capitalized Halloween in your original post. You need to do likewise in your list.

Done. Alright if an administrator would. Could you fix the title to Which film gets you into the Halloween mood? Please

Brad,

It's a little early for Halloween related polls. It also would help to have suggestions from established poll authors.

If you have other polls you can suggest them in different threads.

I'm not sure how to send private messages here but I have another question. So how do you keep track of how many votes your poll got? Is it displayed anywhere?

Brad,

IMDb's Get Satisfaction site does not have a means to send private messages.

When a poll goes live, the results for poll is available on the results page. For instance:

Best Movie to Have Been the IMDb Top 250 #1 has the most votes.
Voting Page: http://www.imdb.com/poll/J_6IK_XGEbU/
Results Page: http://www.imdb.com/poll/J_6IK_XGEbU/results

List of all live IMDb polls:

I periodically publish information on the IMDb Poll.

I think you should keep this idea in stand-by mode for Halloween, it is very unlikely that such a poll would be picked at the peak of summer season :) You'd have better chances with :

It is a small film but it gets you ready in the holloween mood for heavier stuff. But don't be fooled by the innocent looking beginning. This film has a few good shocks in it. "Lady In White".

Hm, I liked Trick 'r Treat, and it's a good film with a Halloween setting. So that one? Though the scariest film, if that's what you wanted, I've seen is the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
