CFB Polls: The Future (1940 poll starts 17 Feb on ICMforum)

Attention all CFB Poll participants, would-be participants and compulsive list-makers!

As many of you will know, the CFB Year-by-Year polls were restarted at the end of last year, with the intention that they would be run by flaiky, gromit82, Rufus-T and me, with each taking it in turns to run a different poll. The years already polled are 1936 and 1979. The next poll planned was 1940.

We have decided to save the CFB Polls (hooray!) and move them onto www.icmforum.com. This site has been around for about six years, and has several poll regulars already there, with more CFB emigres registering in the last week.

If you would like to continue taking part in the CFB Polls then I encourage you to register there. Angel_Glez, morrison-dylan-fan, Perception de Ambiguity, sol, flaiky, Carmel98, oOgiandujaOo, RogerTheMovieManiac88 and others are over there already.

Let me know if you have any questions and I will do my best to answer.

UPDATE: The 1940 poll will start on Friday 17th February.


Re: CFB Polls: The Future

I'll at least take part in them if interest is maintained. Looks like a good site from the little time I've spent there so far.


Here's to the fools who dream

Re: CFB Polls: The Future

Why don't you go ahead and announce a date for the 1940 poll?

Re: CFB Polls: The Future

We're working on that now. I'll post an update once the date is fixed.

Re: CFB Polls: The Future

farne: Thanks for making the announcement. I hope that other regular participants in the year-by-year polls will join in over at ICMforum.

Re: CFB Polls: The Future

Looks good. I registered there a year or two ago but have spent very little time on the site itself. The comments layout here is rather easier on the eye, I think.

Thanks for the promising news, farne. Have you got a timescale in mind for the 1940 poll?

See you on ICM!




That's all, folks!

Re: CFB Polls: The Future

Yeah, I don't think any of the other forums will be a direct replacement. We've knocked a few ideas back and forth but this seems the best we can find. No one knows who's behind IMDb2, Imdforums, etc or how long they'll last. icmforum at least has a track record and poll regulars established there already. They love their polls and lists so it seems like a good place for it.

We're working out when the next poll will start at the moment, but we thought we'd post this as soon as the new location was chosen, to give people a chance to register there. I'll update this thread when the date is fixed.

Re: CFB Polls: The Future

Cheers. The presence of this continuing poll and the presence of familiar names will make the jump between sites that little bit less daunting. Very much looking forward to exploring the year that was 1940!

That's all, folks!

Re: CFB Polls: The Future

I've joined the icm forum, likely would participate in the yearly polls.

Question - I can't remember, are the icm forums moderated (I hope so).


Re: CFB Polls: The Future

are the icm forums moderated (I hope so).



Well you have to agree to treat other posters with respect so I certainly hope so !!!!

Tell mama, Tell mama all....

Re: CFB Polls: The Future

Yes, but I don't know how strict they are or if they have many problems.

Re: CFB Polls: The Future

Thanks guys.

I think icm is going to be in for a rude awakening when the imdb troll brigade arrives.

Re: CFB Polls: The Future

I have registered - thanks - where will the polls take place?


Tell mama, Tell mama all....

Re: CFB Polls: The Future

There's a sub category for polls and games, so I'm assuming there at the moment.

Re: CFB Polls: The Future

Oh that's amazing farne - I randomly clicked on a post in their best of 65 thread and poster had SYLVIA (my avatar) in their ballot!!!!!!! so I'm taking that as a good omen. I'm not shy in saying I'm going to find life after 20th Feb difficult, so knowing I can at least participate in the year by year polls with just some of the regulars is a great relief. Thanks

Tell mama, Tell mama all....

Re: CFB Polls: The Future

If it's as good as you say, I'd be willing to register, and to participate in polls.

But why, for now, do I see no threads there at all, except "Shoutbox" (several recent threads on the theme of "Hi, everybody!") Do I have to register before I can even look at a thread?

Put it on a tripod!

Re: CFB Polls: The Future

Yeah you have to register. It's really simple though.

I hope lots of regulars will join and continue contributing to the polls.


Stop listening to the static.

Re: CFB Polls: The Future (1940 poll starts 17 Feb on ICMforum)

Thanks, farne.
