Top of page 2! Will I make it to page 1 or fall down the ranks first?

Ha, I thought about watching that, but I'd already watched too much propaganda by the time I was thinking of it. I'd have really increased my lead over you - but there's always the December Doc challenge to hit those up.

:cheers:

The december doc challenge will be the perfect opportunity to catch up on all the short Unesco films... So who knows, maybe I'll defend my position in the rankings for a while. :D :guns:

To be honest, I don't often let the "official check" aspect of a film decide whether I will watch it or not (I'd say it plays a role in 30% of my viewings, more or less), most of my horror watchlist films are official, but there is an unofficial films challenge coming up too, so I have no idea what my future ranking will become.

2303. I know that's rather far down compared to most of you, but I'm quickly ascending the ranks. Give me a year or two and my number will be more impressive.

a) Picture of your ranking! :P (I got called out for this in the past, so I'm passing it along)
b) Yeah, you will. Pretty quickly. I was 1976 at the end of 2017 and 905 at the end of 2018. That three-digit rank really makes you feel like one of the cool kids. :lol:

They aren't my friend anymore, because I have very few available official ones left to see and the people ranked around me are still mowing them down. :)

Here's a fun idea for Marijn to implement: remove shorts from counting in the overall rank. They could still be official but should be counted only for the ranks of the list they're in.

Why? I understand that opportunistic short-checking just to get ahead in ICM rankings can be seen as irritating (and odd), but I see no reason to discriminate shorts in the formation of overall rankings. Shortfilms are an important part of cinema, and counting them out just because of their short length would be strange.

I didn't say counting them out. They have their importance that's why they would still be counted in the ranks of the lists they're in but shouldn't be counted in the OVERALL ranking because of what you just said. "Shorts are your friends" means check-whoring. If that's someone thing, that's fine, but also shows that they're in for the gamification aspect of the site.

So, if you're a "gamer", you would like challenges. Taking away some of your official checks in the overall ranking would provide a great challenge, no?
