The Triple Challenge Challenge - 2020

#1

Post by albajos »

To easier keep track of everytime you see doubles or triples in the challenges. And maybe get an award from max?
There will be both monthly and yearly stats.
This thread runs from January 1st to December 31st 2020.

You can only get one double/triple from a mini-series or TV-series. In other words only post one episode in a month.
For shorts the 40/60 minute rule applies.

Use the normal way of posting. (Preferably 0-1, 1-1, 2-1) But reset the count at the beginning of every month. I'll add them together in the yearly stats. Use the prefix [double] or [D] and [triple] or [T] on every point.

Not the biggest participation last year, just a handful stayed the whole year, but about 20 did join us for at least a month.

I'll keep on keeping track as long as max runs the stats awards, so keep shooting for those 3-pointers.

For January
Sci-Fi/Fantasy
Balkans
100>400

There might be a few triples. Just check the 1000-list for Sci-Fi or Fantasy and then limit those by origin country.

Well, I guess this answers my question... "Hey albajos - you planning on doing the Triples challenge again in 2020?" :P

So 12 hours left (for those last time zones), will maxwelldeux actually win with 2 doubles, or will we get some latecomers?

You can post for 36 hours, and then it's all february

I used to have a decent avatar. There was some forum member who made custom avatars for people. I can't remember who it was. I think it got lost in the switch to the new site. I need to work on something new.

Eh, there's a good chance I'll step back a bit from the challenges, for this month and maybe generally, I dunno. In any case I'm not really looking to consciously hit a lot of them for April though I think it'll actually be quite easy.

Not much for me in March:

1. The Whistleblower (double)
2. Breaking Bad (double)

There were actually 17 episodes directed by women from the heavy dose of I took of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, but the rules state only one post per month is allowed for TV.
