Maybe I'll consider a second quiz, but it's hard to think of more questions, so I might need some help.

Does anyone want to suggest a question? Or remind me of an iCM Forum joke, so I can turn the joke into a question?

Fox hunting iCM comment in-joke.
Name of iCM forum podcast
Name of old forum software we used before phpBB
Which two (or three) shorts in 500<400 have generated the most controversy (or shorts previously in the list)?
Who created the iCM Downfall video?
When did the IMDb messageboards close?
How old was George Bailey when he completed the Top 250?

There will be far more related to challenges, World Cup etc. but I haven't paid enough attention to those threads over the years.

I think this question should be rephrased as ‘which are the best shorts that ever made it onto the 500<400 list but left many too stunned to accept their awesomeness’

Pre-forum knowledge: which film was described as ‘typical mainstream trash. I‘ll never watch it in a million years’

That's true. Lim posted the photo but it wasn't supposed to be of him.

More ideas for the quiz:

Whose ass hurt for a while after getting repeatedly ****ed by a 14-year-old?
Who was mortally wounded after a sword was plunged into his chest?
Who owns 14,000 road maps?

Well to be fair, I wouldn't have remembered this without digging up a few old posts. I was actually looking for something about a fireplace with trophies, but couldn't find it.

This was such a great post! I'm happily bumping it.

Angel Glez, Armoreska, joachimt, Kasparius, mightysparks, mjf314, monty, themagician, WalterNeff
anime films, Doubling the Canon, horror, Japanese films, noir, Russian films, samurai films, UNESCO, westerns
:lol: Lovely typecasting right there. Could do most of these blindfolded.
The funny thing is I somehow missed UNESCO in the list, didn't look precisely at the user names and ended up Armoreska assigning to Russian films and joachimt to ... anime? :huh: :ph43r: Yeah well, that didn't feel right.
