Ethan, you need to add a discussion link back to this thread before your poll can be published.

Hi Ethan,

These are very good polls and these recipients deserve the recognition. : )

May I make two suggestions? Instead of one poll having so many options and one having only thirteen, I'd suggest splitting the 48 recipients in half so that both polls have 24 options. 

Also, to shorten the titles a bit, how about "AFI's Lifetime Achievement Award Recipients" for the titles and then, in the intro, spelling out AFI: Which one of these 35 Actors or Directors, who have received the American Film Institute's lifetime achievement award, is your favorite?

(And a small suggested edit: if you have a comma after "award," add a comma after "Directors" as shown in bold)

Voting will be tough: there are so many great choices! I will probably vote for Warren Beatty because I'm a big fan and he tends to get overlooked by poll voters but then I have about five other favorites. The voting results will be interesting to see. : )

Ethan,

It looks like you split list into two lists each with 24 choices. Also, do not include the phrase "Poll Suggestion" in the list. If/when this poll were to go live, the phrase would be confusing.

Please change in your list (https://www.imdb.com/list/ls088631054/) from:

Poll Suggestion:  AFI: Which one of these 35 Actors or Directors, who have received the American Film Institute's lifetime achievement award, is your favorite?

To:

Which one of these 24 actors or directors, who have received the American Film Institute's lifetime achievement award, is your favorite?

Congratulations, ethan!

Live Poll: https://www.imdb.com/poll/7hB36HeWvhw/

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."
