I don't expect to win the animation challenge, but it's fun to post in the same thread as other people, so I can see what people are watching, and they can see what I'm watching, and maybe make comments or ask questions about those watches.
Yes, and I like that too. I think it's about watching similar films at the same time as others and sharing opinions, recommendations etc. That for me should be the point
I pretty much agree with these points, then again I participate more in the threads than I participate in the "challenge" part. Like you, I don't really get the competitive element, not in the least because there's absolutely nothing to win/gain from these ranks (apart for some bragging rights on ICM maybe, but even that I haven't really encountered).
I'm all for changes that will encourage the social aspect of these challenges, though I don't think that should be at the cost of those who do like the competitive aspect of the challenges. Clearly it inspires people to watch films or makes it easier to prioritize films, and while I don't care for the posts that simply list titles, in the end they're also easy enough to skip.
What I don't care for though is to read discussions/reviews about Ren & Stimpy, Naruto, BoJack Horseman or Spongebob episodes
I guess it's fine if it's just one or two people bundled in fewer posts, but when I see someone like sol would reprioritize his entire schedule to move from primarily films to primarily series, then it actively takes away from the discussion about film.
