There are always a few hard choices. (The toughest one will be to largely abandon Run the Director for Experimental/Avant-Garde, that was so fun this year).
Yes, there will always be tough choices; we can never please everyone. I'm half-tempted to nail this in like Lonewolf said above, but it's probably only fair to leave this open for longer so that everyone can have their two cents.
That said, I don't understand the "abandon" mentality. Maybe if you're trying to beat BBB and win a challenge sure, but otherwise I have had several months this year in which I have watched large amounts of films for two challenges that I liked with minimal overlap.
If I could watch as many films as BBB (or perhaps even you from time to time) there would be no need to "abandon" challenges, but I usually watch about 2 a day on average so I can't really dedicate myself properly if split in 2 or 3 - and I really want to dedicate myself to the Experimental/Avant Garde challenge.
In some cases where there is mixed interest I will split them, perhaps 20-25 for each, but that is difficult, and one will usually overshadow the other. I may still join in with a limited amount for the Run the Director challenge (and run a few experimental directors), but I will be far less absorbed by it.
France vs. Travel the World vs. Run the Actor is another difficult one. I will likely just skip France, as it is one of the countries I always see the most from regardless - and probably Run the Actor too, as that loses a bit of power if it is not done properly - but you never know - too early to say. But it is mostly a focus/passion issue. Of course I could always do 10-20 from each - but feels a bit cheap travelling the world with 10 countries
Would much rather have 50+.
