2020 Polls Schedule; Preliminary poll New Polls.

Post by Lonewolf2003 » November 2nd, 2019, 4:17 pm

Like said in this topic; The 2020s Polls schedule will be set up in two stages; by first running two preliminary polls, this one and one for recurring lists, the top results from both will make up the options for the final poll. Whose results will fill the the remaining 6 slots in the schedule.

This thread can be used to clarify information regarding the ideas being voted on. And no, you don't have to vote for exactly six options; you can vote for less. Please only vote for ideas that you consider our forum to be able to make a decent list about!

Note this is the country/regions Challenge schedule for the next years:

Mini-series - I sometimes browse the TV poll to look for short series, so a mini-series poll would save me time. However, there would likely be disagreements regarding which series are eligible.

Music video - I think music videos are unfairly ignored on this forum, so it would be nice to give them some attention. The only problem is we can't use IMDb lists. Most of my favorites aren't on IMDb, and it would take too much work to add all of them.

South Asia - Indian cinema is very popular. I'm surprised we haven't done this poll yet.

Eastern Europe and Central Asia & Caucasus - I like the idea of these polls, but I'm not sure if the forum would be able to make good lists.

Question: Is "Romance" for favourite romances in film, or favourite romance films?

It's good to see that mini-series gets a lot of votes. I used to watch a lot of those on the BBC etc. It's the neglected child of genres, something in between films and series.
