I have time to keep score I guess, but I'm not aware of all the rules and tools you guys have agreed on regarding challenges, also not the greatest with excel or programming skills...
so, if I can help I will, but I'm not sure I can...
Hopefully Mel will surface some time soon, but if he doesn't turn up tomorrow, it would be awesome if you could jump in instead.
Hosting is pretty easy if all that you are tracking is # of films viewed. In fact, you don't even need to use excel unless you are tracking multiple columns (e.g. totals for different countries). This is a word document leaderboard that I used for a challenge that I hosted last year without extra columns:
Just manually move participants up and down as the count column changes. Very easy to put together and track in Word.
As for the rules, these are the only ones that you should state:
- Each feature film (over 40 minutes) counts as one entry.
- 80 minutes of short films or miniseries/TV episodes counts as one entry.
- Films must be watched one at a time and at single speed (not sped up).
- Rewatches are allowed and are good for the soul.
All other rules (whether participants need to state year-of-release, country or director etc.) may vary from challenge to challenge. All depends what stats (if any) you wish to track.
But yeah, hopefully Melvelet will still be up to hosting because his recommendations game sounded promising. Let's see what the next few hours bring.
