Yes/No. In the answer is "Yes" proceed to polls 1-N otherwise go straight to the preparation stage (managers sign-up, countries, pots, etc.). Because maybe there's no need to go again through the same series of polls and discussions we've had before.
Good point.

I'll be ready. I have a kinda interest in managing a country. But I watch so few films these days, that I'd feel like not honoring the position enough.
I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to die.

You could be the first Swiss manager, then. :party:

- Season 2 batch of 80 films was definitely better than Season 1, so learn from it.
- Invite new members to join and manage already from introduction page, I guess they'd be glad.
- Somebody take Switzerland & Bulgaria this time dammit.
- We can live without Senegal third time, can't we.
Somebody will take Switzerland. ;)

Isn't Switzerland another one of those made up countries? You know, like Finland. I mean, a peaceful mountain democracy given to neutrality and making clocks and chocolates where people speak different languages and belong to historically antagonistic ethnic groups but mostly get along.

Hardly seems like a real place on this planet. HTNPDRKY?

I was also thinking about this recently. I'd be in for this again if it started in January. Also gives me enough time to watch the three remaining films from season 2 before it starts :p Finally watched Al-makhdu'un this week.

Actually when you hear them talking, it sounds way different than German. For instance, where Germans say "o" they pronounce it "uuhhh". And many of their last names end up with -li.
So they're different I guess.
