Is blueboybob still around? Haven't seen anything from him in three weeks and his last post doesn't make me optimistic. :(

He went dark on the main site as well, no? Think he was/is tired to constantly defend the amount of movies he watch and how he watch them.

Can’t say I blame him.

It’s called a double if a movie fits two challenges. And a triple fits all three.

If there is a Fantasy movie made in Central America that’s also on our 1000<400 list, then it’s eligble for all three challenges this month, aka «a triple».

Bbb point was that if he had 100 points in all three challenges one month then it does not mean that he had seen 300 movies.

He'll probably come back tbh. I remember in the past he called us all snobs for not liking Jackass or The Landlord and he still came back.

Hope he comes back soon. Comments like that are not going to help Hipster.

Also, to me it seems like a simple misunderstanding.

It was a misunderstanding. I've already posted about it so don't want to keep saying it but I was not attacking him at all. I thought he was making a joke but actually I just didn't understand what doubles/triples meant.

True and everybody saw that but did Bob even read the apology before going offline ? Anyway, theres nothing we can do but wait for him to come back.

Well, it's ironic how the last straw was what seems to be a misunderstanding - but it was only an escalation of an underlying, longer affair. We'll have to wait and see if he, and the starting matter, cool off.

I looked at her profile here which led me to her Letterboxd. She did rate something there last month on the 6th. Also her Letterboxd mentions she's a member of the Criterion forum but I'm not a member so I couldn't check her profile to see if she's been active there.

Ah, I didn't think to check for other site links in the profile. Thanks :) Glad there's some activity somewhere, at least.

rbg hasn't been here in over 2 months, since the blowup over her comments on Ki-duk Kim. I don't know if that's what precipitated her departure, or it just added to long-standing feelings, or something else but :(
