I'm expecting to announce the final results in approximately 25 hours from now (consistent with what I said in the OP) so you have a little over one day to make sure that you're listed correctly in the OP and for you to finalise any viewings from this last month. ^_^

BREAKING NEWS
Only 1.2 points currently separate Belgium and the Netherlands, so Holland can still win this depending and who posts updates and for which films over the next 25 hours. Exciting times! :circle:

cinephage seem to be missing 1 point (#195), so that might be 0.2?

Well, the gap might be narrower if cinephage does in fact edit his post to include country of production. Totally up to him though; if he doesn't, it is excluded from the tally. That said, with Onderhond posting two films from his home country in the hope of getting a local win, we'll probably need an extensive last minute update from jero for NL to pull through and snatch a win...

By the way, I notice that I appear to be one short in the tallies in the OP. I wonder whether one of the co-productions I viewed has fallen foul of an ineligibility ruling. If so, please do tell me which one it is and I'll try to make a case for it. I shall be going out for the morning in a couple of hours though.

Nah, the problem is with my math; I have...
7 RogerTheMovieManiac88 6 5 1 11

...listed for you at the moment, which clearly doesn't add up (6+5+1 = 12). I probably forgot to add the Lux in when last double checking my tally. I'm doing this manually through Word and most people have nothing in that column, so that's the most likely place of oversight. Or as HAL would say, "it can only be attributed to human error". Thanks for doubling check this; I'll update and correct things in a few minutes.

Hmm. I have begrudgingly decided to include cinephage's 7th viewing since you've done the country research for me - and because he is the only outlier with a stateless viewing (I would be less inclined to if I was getting inundated with stateless viewings from multiple users). Cinephage owes you one!

Which means it is confirmed what was already known.

Belgium is superior to The Netherlands. :guns: :rip:

Congrats to jeroeno on your win! Full results available and up-to-date in the OP.

Which is all quite interesting... but what if we re-sort things by country? :blink:

EDIT: These numbers might be 100% accurate due a problem on my behalf. My computer force restarted itself early on Thursday morning (while I was sleeping) in order to install a new version of Windows 10. I was unable to open the auto-saved version of the Word document that I use to keep track of challenge leader boards. Looking at the time stamp of the most recently saved version, it appears that I incorrectly assumed that I had all necessary updates saved. Apparently not. That would explain the lack of jd's last update. Same thing happened to m-d-f's last update made at the same time. I have now corrected this in the OP, though as mentioned, these stats are probably not 100% accurate. Sorry about. Blame Windows 10 and its ridiculous need to install cumulative updates and so on a weekly basis.

Oops. That's odd. I remember including your last post in the Country stats, but it seems I forgot to change your scores in the leaderboard. I'll update it in the OP now since that's where max takes his data from. I don't have the time at the moment though to update it in the results post above.
