Nothing personal, but that's not really fair indeed. Kingink made it to the QF and you blew it for him. :lol:

These 8 get to pick first (starting tomorrow in a new thread):

mjf314
tommy_leazaq
funkybusiness
klaus78
kingink
sortile9io
monty
Carmel98

But it's pretty safe to assume kingink won't use this opportunity.
Is it sure the others will want or able to be manager again?
No, not sure, but the get a chance for a few days.

Maybe you should contact these people as the new thread was supposed to start already, and they're nowhere to be seen in sight lately.

One shouldn't fetch them from somewhere, they should come of their own volition.

1. I planned to send all of these a PM here on this forum. Not going to find them elsewhere.
2. The new thread was supposed to start already? What do you mean?

It's about signing-up countries; yesterday you said it's gonna be tomorrow, that's today.

https://www.countries-ofthe-world.com/a ... tries.html

If we use such a list, Hong Kong can't be picked, because it's not a separate country, but a "special administrative region". Previously Hong Kong did compete in our WC as a separate country. We probably discussed this before, but I don't remember precisely.
We said anything that's listed on IMDb except dissolved states should be included. Plus Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

I wish if Fergenaprido could teach me how to make that beautiful map of his he made at the beginning of Season 2. :whistling:
I just use the templates from wikipedia and edit accordingly. I love maps. :)

Let me know which map you want to see, and I'll create it for you. I can create one of the results from season 2, if you'd like. I'm heading out tomorrow for 6 days for work, so I might not get a chance until I get back, though.

These are the maps I showed last season, I believe

Results of first season

Participants
red: season 1 only
light blue: season 2 only
dark blue: both seasons

EDIT: You can make a map of countries that already participated, and those which are going to participate now (in the 3rd season).

For those of us who haven't been intimately following the thread, can you give a brief rundown of the planned timeline with this option?

And today isn't over yet. <_<

Sometimes you really need to change your tone of voice. Saying that something SHOULD have happened already, sounds very impatient. You do realize some people have to work during the day?

Round 1:
48 countries divided into groups of 4.
4 weeks per match.
1.5 weeks overlap.
#1 and #2 in a group proceed to next round.

Round 2:
24 countries divided into groups of 3.
3 weeks per match.
1 week overlap.
#1 proceeds to next round.

Round 3 till Final:
2 countries per match.
2 weeks per match.
0.5 weeks overlap.

Pace is around 6 to 6.5 movies per month. Whole tournament will last for about 14.5 months.

Just got a feel that things used to go smoothlier before. Or was it because more people frequented the forum? No idea.

More people wouldn't have mattered in this case. It's me who opens this thread, so it's me you have to wait for. I always work a full day on Wednesday.

I'm going to bring my kid to bed now ...... if you don't mind.

Weird. I'm at the airport now, but once I get to the hotel I'll transfer the images from photobucket to imgur and repost them for all to see. I think it will make more sense to post them in the new signup thread instead of here.
