    are you going to start each thread or do we want to do some sort of system where in someone who particularly likes a film and is the first to see it decides they are fine with taking on keeping it updated?

    Cool. We need to get a thread for a specific film in here to see how it works in practice.

    The only thing I'm concerned about is the number of threads for films seen by only one or two people (i.e. limited release films) clogging everything up. Perhaps only a moderator should be allowed to create threads for specific films based on the wide releases of that week, and anything else can go in a stickied Limited Release/Festival Thread, which could just operate like Ezee's format. Any film that starts off in here can be elevated to its own thread once a certain number of people have seen it, maybe?

    We have tons of server space and a search function that I believe still works fine. I would prefer we not restrict it yet. I mean, Nick and Boner have a right to vote for the films.

    I doubt it will clog up as you say only because if only two people see it then it'll just get pushed to the back as people keep discussing and updating bigger films.

    Fair enough. So there will be a sticky at the top with a list of the films that all have threads dedicated to them, with links straight to that thread? And so if we don't see a film on that list, we can create our own (and perhaps comment in that sticky that we have done so, so that the mod can add it to the list)?

    Oh, sorry! I just assumed with as much as you were mocking the multiple rating systems that you found this way over-the-top. I stand corrected...and yes, fun!

    Do you guys think it would be best to have the threads sorted alphabetically or by last posting date (which will include voting in the poll, but NOT voting PRO/CON)?

    Alphabetically seems like the easiest system to me.

    How far in advance do you want someone to make a thread? The week of its release?

    Edit: This is to prevent several thread being spawned that aren't released until the summer (Batman, Avengers, etc).

    Yes, I hope everyone is repping Raiders for this. Not only saves a lot of manual work, but should be more organized and nicer to look at this way.

    The threads don't really need to be released until close to the release date. Before that, the discussion would be in the Upcoming thread for the film.

    Ideally, the first person who sees the film, and who has a couple spare moments, would create the thread here.

    I would say no more than a week before it's released or when someone sees it early (press screening, festival, etc.) and is certain it has a 2012 release date.

    EDIT: What Raiders said.

    We should probably have a thread for The Devil Inside since that's the first "major" new release of the year. I have no problem making it but then you need to add the poll and "rate this film" part, correct?

    Are none of these polls public? Shouldn't they be public?

    You add the poll when creating the thread. The "Rate This Film" part is added automatically.

    soitgoes... wait a minute! You aren't making the polls public. They have to have who voted viewable by everyone.

    Unfortunately, once a vote it cast I can't make it a public poll. I will have to delete these threads.

    Yeah, I never created a poll thread before. I'll redo them.
