I just did my voting. I really dislike those polls. There should be requirements for voting. I get so sick of seeing only the newest and biggest movies or people at the top. I mean seriously, there is a poll titled "Favourite Scottish Character" and Scotty from Star Trek is 8th while someone from a movie that came out this year is first by a wide margin. That is ridiculous.

I presume you mean this poll:
Favourite Scottish Character
http://www.imdb.com/poll/4sYXZEchd7o/results

There is a strong preference for the new and shiny versus classic on IMDb. This is probably due in large part to the demographics of IMDb users.

Code:
Males   Females  Unknown  Total       	
70.6%   14.2%    15.2%    100.0%  Total
 1.1%    0.3%     0.0%      1.4%  Under 18
38.0%    7.6%     0.0%     45.5%  18 to 29
24.2%    4.2%     0.0%     28.3%  30 to 44
 4.6%    1.1%     0.0%      5.7%  45 +
 2.7%    1.2%    15.2%     19.1%  Unknown

I derived what I previous provided from
User ratings for The Shawshank Redemption (1994)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0111161/ratings

I've reviewed the ratings demographics for all of the IMDb Top 250 in the past and found that the demographics for The Shawshank Redemption is representative of the overall demographics for the IMDb Top 250.

This table is based on a summary of the IMDb Top 250 from April 8, 2013.
Code:
Males   Females  Unknown  Total	
64.0%   12.0%    24.1%    100.0%   Total
 0.6%    0.2%     0.0%      0.8%   Under 18
35.0%    7.1%     0.0%     42.1%   18 to 29
23.2%    3.4%     0.0%     26.6%   30 to 44
 4.8%    1.0%     0.0%      5.9%   45 +
 0.3%    0.2%    24.1%     24.6%   Unknown

Favorite TV Bromance?
http://www.imdb.com/poll/T0A03Ss7Zmw/
Bromance = An exceptionally tight, non-sexual relationship between two men.

Which of these non-animated pairs of best friends (bromances) on TV is your favorite?
Choice #9 is Londo & G'Kar.

http://www.imdb.com/list/ls076964589/#9


It would be nice that Peter and Andreas would get more than seven votes.

Dream Interview
http://www.imdb.com/poll/o9Pwtj-Zejk/
If you could interview and/or chat with anyone face-to-face listed on IMDb, alive or dead, who would you most wish to meet?

Suggest alternate choices and discuss here.

Note: The first choice in the poll is J. Michael Straczynski, although he has some extremely stiff competition.

25 Shows of the 90's That Paved the Way for the New Golden Age of TV
http://www.imdb.com/poll/R59Y6IrZgRo/

One of the most influential changes to occur in the 25 years since IMDb began is the markedly improved quality of TV series. If the New Golden Age of television officially began in 1999 with the premiere of The Sopranos, then soon followed by series like Six Feet Under and The Wire, and was in full swing by the time series like Dexter, Breaking Bad, and Game of Thrones were introduced, the following shows of the 90's (IMDb's first decade) were perhaps the giants that the Golden Age shows stood upon. Instead of voting for your favorite of the shows below, which one's influence can be most seen in the TV of the New Golden Age?

Babylon 5 is the second choice in the poll. It is currently in seventh place with only 5 votes.

This poll is on the IMDb home page.

Babylon 5 is still in seventh place with 65 votes.

Poll: The Miracle of Hanukkah (TV version)

Poll: The Miracle of Hanukkah (TV version)
http://www.imdb.com/poll/zUuEsaZyLjg/
No one thought that the menorah would burn more than one day, yet miraculously, it burned for eight days!! Like the menorah, there are TV shows that practically nobody gave a chance to continue for more than one or two seasons, but by some miracle, they did.

So which one of these TV shows are you most happy it didn't get canceled?

Babylon 5 is the 16th choice. It currently only has 19 votes.

Poll: Roses are Red... and They are!
http://www.imdb.com/poll/nJkmJCF_E_E/
The color red is mostly mean temptation and passion, okay.. it's not the case with these characters, but still we have a great bunch of people! (okay not all of them are people).

Anyway, from this list of Red characters who is you favorite?

G'Kar is the 14th choice. It currently is in 19th place with 5 votes.
