OT - How to get access to the homepage?

When I go to the homepage or when I do www.imdb.com I get this:


Is this the new official format? if it is, it's okay but there's no poll at the bottom... how can I get to the usual homepage instead of the new one?

Hey there,

Yes, IMDb recently updated their homepage.

You can find the homepage poll under Editors' picks.

I haven't seen an official announcement about this yet.

The old format is still there somewhere. Try if this link works for you:

Thanks but when I click on your link, I still get the new format in black. By the way, I could never get the old homepage format on my mobile.

There has to be a settings issue. I still haven't seen my IMDb homepage in that fashion.

I think they're still testing. May be browser/system dependent.

The IMDb Picks page also displays the latest home page poll and some other home page content:

Let's hope the poll will be a permanent feature of the Editors' picks.

That's why the rate of votes on home page polls has been decreased these days.

I also get the new model, I can still see the old one in my mobile, but not in desktop. I actively dislike the new model, beyond the lack of the poll, which is already a big blow, there is nothing to like about the new homepage. Honestly I will avoid it and access the IMDb through another url.

Its possible to complain here: https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/imdb-com-home-page

Thanks.. ordinarily I would have written something but I don't know, I feel strangely stoic about it, I have learned that when something happens, it was bound to happen, that's the age we're living in. I don't like the format but hey, what can I do? 
At least, no one will complain about the homepage poll lol

The good about the homepage poll is that it use to gather many votes. Now with this new design that privilege is gone.

I don't think they care, the thread has no official response from anyone or at least an acknowledgment. I just left my commnet but I don't think anything will change.

The new homepage doesn't feel like the IMDb to me, and while there are still ways to access the old version, is safe to assume they'll soon be gone.

I'll just start skipping the homepage entirely and access the website through http://www,imdb.com/polls/ and navigate from there, I just hope they don't start changing the rest of the database.

There is a first reply from IMDb on page 2 of that thread:
