Challenges Index + Basic Rules

#1

Post by mightysparks » September 1st, 2011, 10:10 am

There are two types of challenges:

Official Challenges
  • There are two official challenges each month which are set by admins in advance (using a list of suggestions and a list randomizer).
  • They all generally use the same set of rules, but it's up to the host if they want to change something.
  • The host updates the OP regularly with the current scores and a winner is announced at the end.
  • They last for the month.
Unofficial Challenges
  • Any member who wants to make up a challenge can do so.
  • The host of the challenge is in charge of making his/her own rules for the challenge.
  • Not all unofficial challenges keep a scoreboard, it's up to the host to decide.
  • They start and end when the host decides and may last more than a month.
  • Some challenges may be ongoing.
To make it easier for the challenge host and other members, the best format for your posts would be to keep the films numbered, and a list of everything you've seen in a spoiler tag. You can have ratings or comments in your posts to make them more interesting, but you don't have to.

Example post:
3. The Godfather (1972)

1. Citizen Kane (1941)
2. Casablanca (1942)
3. The Godfather (1972)
