The Oscar nominations will be announced on the 24th. If there aren't any objections, I'll start the discussion thread tomorrow (the 13th). Though, if anyone else has a burning desire to run the Oscar Challenge let me know.

Romance Music Musicals list thread is live. I know this is one of those years it completely overlaps with Oscars, but no one is obligated to participate in both. And I still save romance and music stuff for Feb.

I don't mind the overlap. Lots of dual-eligible stuff, and running them concurrently gives me built-in directions to go to keep from getting burnt out on either theme.

The Oscar Challenge is chugging along just fine. Will we have an Action/Adventure Challenge in March? It's usually in March righ?

I could be this year's 'guest host'. This is one of the simpler Challenges; pretty much anything goes. I'd probably run it lean and mean ie no graphics and I might re-use last years checklist or at most make minor changes to it. There's less than a week to sunset the 28th. I may not be the best choice, but I may be the only choice

I'm ready to create the discussion and list thread now, if no one has any objections. I'll wait until 12:00 pm CT if anyone else wants to step up.

Re: "Official" DVDTalk Challenges Compendium

I've posted the 12th Annual DVDTalk Action/Adventure/Crime/Mystery Challenge discussion and list threads. What's the process to getting the list moved to the sticky threads section and the discussion pinned to the top of the normal threads?

If one of the mods doesnít pin the list thread automatically, just PM them. Giles and Dex are this forumís mods.

We donít pin the discussion threads, they tend to stay near the top. But I guess one of the unofficial jobs of the thread runner is to try to keep the conversation moving all month.

I was told the best way is to use the Report Post button on the list OP. It sounds scary because it says itís only for spam and stuff, but it has worked for me.

The 16th Annual Sci-fi/Fantasy discussion thread has been posted here.

Would love some feedback on the checklist! I will get the list thread up in about a week or so.

Been absent for a few months, thanks, as always, for keeping things running everyone! Have been participating monthly in absentia, and will posts my meager lists someday for OCD reasons.
