Re: "Official" DVDTalk Challenges Compendium

So earlier tonight I requested that the Animation list thread get sticky'd and it's now disappeared. Have a feeling it got deleted rather than pinned. Should I just go ahead and replace it or is there a way that it could be fixed? Thanks!

It may have been accidentally moved to wherever threads go when they "moderate" them, so hold off on starting a new one.

Who did you ask to move it? Maybe send them a PM and ask about it. Or just PM Giles. He's one of the three moderators and takes part in Challenges.

Thanks, was just searching for a moderator to pm. I didn't ask one specifically, I did the report option which I usually use to ask (that's the way I was told to use to ask for a pinned thread, please let me know if there's another way that's better).

No, the Report Post thing is probably the best way to get the thread stickied.

The moderators are listed at the bottom right on the main forum page. For this forum, it says "nemein, Scott_Lecter, Giles." I'd use Giles since he takes part in the challenges, so he might have more interest in fixing the problem.

I clicked on Giles on the main page and it says he was last on the forum about 40 mins ago (so he probably did whatever it was that happened). Scott_Lecter says 5 years ago!, and nemein doesn't have that info available. So yeah, PM Giles.

Oh good, for a minute I was worried I was going about it wrong! I did PM Giles and hopefully he's able to recover it...

Thanks to Giles, the list thread has been recovered. A bit of accidental button pushing when getting it sticky'd yesterday. We are good to go!

Re: "Official" DVDTalk Challenges Compendium

Time to start planning for the 2017 Criterion Challenge. Who wants to run it this year? First refusal rights to Travis McClain and Cardiff (I haven't posted in two years but still visit daily) Giant.

If no one else wants to run it I can give it a shot.

Thanks Greg! We're covered, but do you have any interest in running the March A/A/C/M Challenge?

Quoting to make it a contractural obligation.

Re: "Official" DVDTalk Challenges Compendium

So, do we want a separate subforum for Challenges? We've discussed it a bit before I'm pretty sure. With DVDTalk being so dead, and it being the holidays, I figure it might be a good time to ask favors, as the powers that be might be in a charitable mood.

Im not sure we need it, but thought it worth bringing up again.

We also need a food sub-forum.

Re: "Official" DVDTalk Challenges Compendium

I don't know that we need it. Pushing everything to a subforum might make it more difficult for newbies to see the threads and get involved.

BTW, the Oscar Challenge won't begin until February in 2018 thanks to the Winter Olympics pushing the telecast to March 8.

According to this article the nominations will be announced on January 23rd. That would be the start of the challenge. No?

We typically run from announcement to ceremony so that would mean the Challenge would run from 1/23 to 3/8. That seems a little long but I'll defer to the judgement of the group. Otherwise I figured 2/8-3/8 would give us approximately 30 days.

Re: "Official" DVDTalk Challenges Compendium

I'd vote for the traditional announcement to ceremony timeframe. In the past, iirc, it's not always exactly 30 days. Now if they ever change it to two months or so between those things, it'd be wise to re-examine it.

The one month (plus dusk to dawn) seems appropriate for most Challenges, but I like the extension for holiday, and think we should consider it for Historical Appreciation, where including Memorial Day and July 4th might be cool.

Re: "Official" DVDTalk Challenges Compendium

Also in favor of following the natural dates of announcements to ceremony rather than an arbitrary 30 days that doesn't match up with the months. I bet that would drive OCD folks insane.

I also like starting the challenge when they announce the nominees.

I'd like to stick with tradition as well. Gives more time to try and get the nominees seen.

Re: "Official" DVDTalk Challenges Compendium

I decided that I'll join the Oscar Challenge starting on 2/2, but I'll be starting to watch some off and on from the noms date of 1/23.

I always like the 30 day thingy with challenges and since that's what I've been doing since I started with the challenges listed below in my signature, I figured I'd stick with my personal tradition.

Nonetheless, we're less than 3 weeks away!

And I'll be supplying some special prizes this year!

Just a heads up - I plan on putting up the discussion thread for the March Action challenge in the next couple days.
