    That's probably a little too specific. Then we'd have to do favorite Friends episode, favorite Frasier episode, favorite Cheers episode, favorite MASH episode, etc.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that the Top 200 Video Games tournament has started over in Games. You can find a link here.

    We'd love to have you over! ;)

    You know what I think would be fun to do. An Oscar style contest for the 6 Star Wars films, and have different categories like the oscar's do, and have a nominating process, and then pick from the nominees. For instance, we could have Best Actor in a leading role, and then have a full list of people to pull from, get 5 nominees, and then have everyone vote on those 5 for the winner. And for the categories where only the 6 films can be there, we should limit the number of nominees to 3. So, for Best Picture, we have 6 films, but only 3 become nominees, and from those 3, only one becomes the winner. It would take a little prework to set it up, like figuring out what qualifies an actor for a leading, as opposed to a supporting role. etc etc.

    I find that very interesting mate, by the way. I've actually already passed it along to some of our film mods as well, as this could be something that is directly related to the CT, PT, SWC and SWS forums.

    :D

    Okay, with the Tabletop Games Tournament over, we can start prepping for a new one. I'm going to put a poll up to choose ;) But does anyone have any ideas that haven't already been suggested?

    *echoing the "you should all join" part* :D

    Favorite literary character would be pretty fun... has favorite movie already been done, I assume?

    Who reads the opening post of a thread this long :p

    Though that was 6 years ago, so it should probably be considered a viable option to reuse in the future - a lot of movies have come out since then.

    Also, now that I've looked at the opening post... its not exactly up to date anymore, so its only marginally helpful on what has and hasn't been done :p

    (not trying to force Nat into more work, just noting)

    Darn right you're not :p The index should be fairly up-to-date, though I'll be honest and say it was created before my time so all I really know is that it's up-to-date for the events of the last two years.

    Guess what? The SFFBC favorite SFF book tournament (hosted by our lovely RJ) has nominations in progress :D We'd love to have people nominate, and then come in and vote and discuss when the tournament's running. Doesn't matter if you've never been in SFFBC before. We'd love to see people in there :)
