This is another difficulty with this idea. It can become very vague at times what fits the genre definition. real fans of a genre might not appreciate art-house movies that also fit the description for instance. Narrowing down the genres might help, but that of course limits choices in more ways, making a pool/cup game system more difficult to execute.
I don't see this as problems. For the World Cup these similar problems are there as well.

It is sometimes difficult to assign a movie to a nation (especially when using Sovjet / Yugoslavia era movies for their current nations). Also, some nations that join have a very limited pool of available films to choose from, especially with the only one movie by a director rule. Despite these problems the World Cup runs fine.

If the manager picks a movie for the genre, fans of the genre don't appreciate he runs the risk of being eliminated by losing their votes. I don't see that as a problem, but part of the game as a manager of this cup game system.

An idea could be to have participants contribute their top 3 movies for specific genres and let each genre have a manager who decides which of those three fits the description best. Then all participants whatch and rate all selected movies to determine the favorite.

We don't do this for the World Cup. Why do you think this extra effort is necessary for a genre tournament? I fail to see what you think is different about it.

What belongs to a genre seems far more debatable (for some, looking at reactions in genre polls for instance) compared to what belongs to a country. But i am willing to try it.

If nobody else want to do it, I'll start the nominations tomorrow. Deadline certainly won't be the end of July though, because I'll be on vacation from the 28th, so I want to finish the countdown before that.

I'd offer, but I'll be on vacation again at the end of July, and people may not like how restrictive I am with eligible films :D

:lol:
I'm not even going to try to discuss the eligibility of movies as long as people vote for African movies and not movies just made in Africa.

I'll start the thread in a few hours.

Question about next month's poll: will Turkey and Egypt be eligible, since they've already taken part in the Balkans and Africa polls respectively.

The list of eligible countries is in the OP of the poll:
viewtopic.php?t=3813&
So no Turkey, but Egypt is eligible.

Why do you say Egypt already took part in the Africa poll?

Bit weird to include it in both maybe, but it is usually including in definitions of Middle East and also of Africa. So Egypt is eligible.

Turkey not of course. Clearly not part of Africa.

I know Turkey isn't part of Africa, that's not what I'm asking. :rolleyes:

Ok, I think I see where the confusion is. I'm asking if Turkey and Egypt will be eligible for the upcoming Middle East poll which will follow the Africa poll that is currently running, I mentioned Turkey having been in the Balkans poll and Egypt being in the current Africa one because I don't know what the stance is on countries appearing on multiple lists.

Ah, now I see. Eh... didn't even think about this. Didn't remember there is a Middle East Poll next month.
Judging on Wikipedia, Egypt is both part of the Middle East and of Africa and Turkey is both part of the Middle East and of the Balkans. So I guess they are eligible for both polls in both cases.

When we did the Balkans poll, I don't remember if there was an official rule, but many of the participants only included Turkish films from the Balkan/European side of the country.

You should have a poll for disturbing films. That's the only list I have that's not used for regular polls (out of 3).

Who wants to do the Middle East poll in August? Maybe it's a good idea to start the nominations in time, because otherwise people might miss the deadline if they're on holiday.

Is there a place with a survey of all icmforum's polls with link to the lists? Mighty has started such an attempt with the "iCM Forum's Lists Index" thread ( viewtopic.php?f=6&t=963&view=unread#unread ) but it has not been updated for a couple of years.

I'm asking because I'm compiling an icmforum metapoll, a poll of all polls (including dtc). I think I've already found all lists and good scoring.txt values and compiled a list that I find is already truly remarkable. It's interesting to see how it reflects the tastes of this forum, However, I would like to use the full list of every poll where available, but I was not able to locate all of them. For example for the 500<400 lists I only found the Top 500 list, but I remember that at the time there were longer versions of this list.

Now that the forum is stable and I'm back I'm going to make a list of things that need to be done/fixed/updated and then setup a plan to keep everything running smoothly. It'll probably take a few weeks, but this will be on the list (both this index and the challenge index, as well as some other things that aren't indexed or compiled, like the year-by year polls)

And some jobs can be done by others. Doesn't have to be a mods-job. Lauren clearly isn't interested in investing time to update the polls-schedule, so someone else should start a topic and keep that up-to-date. The biggest job is to gather all info and links of the past. After that it's just a matter of updating the table once each month.

Maybe it is time to start discussing future polls we could held in 2019 and do some suggestions?

Those were the options that didn't made it last year with more than 10 votes.

Fantasy 16 4.20%
Film scores 16 4.20%
Benelux 15 4%
Romcom 15 4%
Crime 13 3.40%
Coming-of-age 12 3.20%
Central Asia 11 2.90%
Biopics 11 2.90%
Gangster 10 2.60%
Prison 10 2.60%
Romance 10 2.60%

My suggestions would be adding: spy genre, an India (or South-Asia), a Portuguese language poll, Eastern Europe and possibly a USA poll in the poll selection

Suggestions for recurring polls: shorts, Russian, Central-Europe, Actors and Italy (they're all done in either 2015 or 2016 for the last time). Animation has been done for the last time in 2014 and could be even more urgent. Shorts used to be annual, but for whatever reason it is not anymore.

Silent, 1930's, 1940's, 1950's and Film Noir all has been done for the last time in 2014 -> but i don't think it's a good idea to organize all of those in the same timespan of two years, but selecting one or two could be an option.

Many people will want to have a film score poll probably. I also think it's time for a fantasy, Benelux and a coming-of-age poll (latter one can also be done in 2020, and could go together with a challenge -> https://www.icheckmovies.com/lists/a+co ... lakigigar/ i've made a list of suggestions for coming-of-age movies, in case we will ever hold such a challenge.

I don't think it would be a good idea to have both a central Asia and a South-Asia poll in one year... I think one should be held in 2019, and the other one in 2020... I'm also not sure whether India or South-Asia should be mentioned in the poll, since India might just be large enough to merit an own poll (instead of being grouped together with other small nations). In the future it could also be an idea to split some groups again in smaller country lists (like instead of repeating the Eastern Europe challenge, having a Hungary poll, a Czechoslovak poll or a Polish poll), but it's just an idea. I'm not sure what is best to do.

I'm also not sure whether India or South-Asia should be mentioned in the poll, since India might just be large enough to merit an own poll (instead of being grouped together with other small nations). In the future it could also be an idea to split some groups again in smaller country lists (like instead of repeating the Eastern Europe challenge, having a Hungary poll, a Czechoslovak poll or a Polish poll), but it's just an idea. I'm not sure what is best to do.
India's absolutely big enough to have it's own poll, but Sri Lanka, Maldives, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal, and Bhutan (and Afghanistan if included) have such little output that grouped together without India probably wouldn't be enough to come up with a decent list. For this reason, I'd prefer to have a South Asian poll, so that the 5-10 non-Indian films that are worthwhile get included.

I think the Central European poll of Poland Czechia, Slovakia, and Hungary doesn't need to be split into separate groups. I also think it doesn't need to be redone just yet; there are still other countries/regions that we haven't had a poll for yet.

I second Ferge's first paragraph - while some of those countries (Pakistan in particular) have reasonably large outputs, I really don't think very many people here will have seen enough such that a poll of any value could be done. And if they're going to be included anywhere it'd make sense to put them in with India - that way also people wanting to watch stuff for the poll (particularly if there's a related challenge before it) would have alternatives if they don't like S. Ray and/or Bollywood-type stuff. :P

I'd reeeally like a "directed by women" poll.

Also, a history/period film poll.

For recurring: Italy, documentaries, musicals, actors, TV series...and personally I want "unofficial films" to be annual, I feel like it makes sense.

Anyway, yeah I guess just get suggestions together and include them with the runners-up from last year to be put up for a vote.

Ah good. I had to hunt around for the schedule, but I just found it. Pleased to see we also have Germany and Spain coming up.

Shorts was dropped from being annual because a majority voted against it, when setting the 2017 schedule But we could do it again. Especially with all the new users that could be interesting again.

There is a difference between annnual and recurring polls. The first are done every year, the later are done again every X years. I’m against too many annual ones, cause there is only a limited ammount of slots for polls every year. Only “0 official lists” would be a candidate for annual status imo. Italy, Animated, Noir, Silent, Docu are the most logical choices do again in 2019 or 2020 I think.

We should also decide if we want to the decade polls again, when we want to start with those and how many a year. I would be for starting again with them in 2019, do two decades each year, and start eith the 1920s and work are way up chronically. (Unless we want to do a 1910s or even older decades first too for the first time. If we do that we don’t have to repeat the silent one I think.)

1920s was the last one we did. We started with the 1930s last cycle.

If we do decide to do 1910s and earlier as a decade/era poll, then I would still be in favour of a silent poll, but in that case I wouldn't have it as silent-era films, but rather silent as a genre/style, including neo-silents like The Artist.

Mind you, one of the reasons I personally pushed for a 1920s poll was I wanted talkies from that decade to be given a chance... and then none of them made the top 250, if I recall correctly. :shrug: So maybe a separate silent poll isn't necessary if we do the '10s.

I know, but to me it just seem more logical to start with the oldest decade first in this new cycle.

Fair point; I suppose I'm simply thinking that not enough time will have passed for the list to have changed enough to merit repolling, though I guess we do have a different userbase since the poll was done last year. Overall, I support your decade proposal. :thumbsup:

I think it would be a bit nuts do to the 1920s again, when at this point it's still been less than a year and there are many other polls waiting to be repeated. We could just imagine that the 1920s poll was the start of the new cycle...with an 18 month gap before the 1930s. :blink:

Could I also throw cinematographers into the ring? This year included two "people polls", both alongside other polls, and I think that's a good approach.

Actors have been done for the last time in 2015. Cinematographers have been done last year.

I'd quite like us to do a poll for Miniseries
