How much of what users watch is eligible for a <25 poll? A rough estimate for me is 17% overall, but the marginal rate is much higher (8 out of the last 25 checks).

An actual <25 poll sounds really tempting, but I'm not sure how many overlaps could be? (Well, ok, technically up to 25). We could always try. My stats:

10% overall (ranked my checks, and jumped to the 25/26 split, 956 out of 9575)
51% of my last 100

Actually you know what would be better? An ICM list of every film mentioned in this thread.
Yeah I suspect that sort of ratio is fairly typical. I’d imagine that users with more checks would also have a higher percentage of films with <25 checks.

That is a brilliant idea. Let's do it!

I just calculated and 19.9% of my checks have less than 25 checks. That includes episodes though. If I remove episodes it's 11.0% (1104 checks).

As I have seen 75% of all norwegian movies, most of them are in the vicinity of 25 checks. But not that I would vote for any more than 10 of them.

20.7% here. That's pretty much all feature films.

#925 Aphex Twin: Come to Daddy (1997) 10 checks
The only reason why it has so few checks is because people don't care to check music vids I guess. Since this played on MTV quite a lot back in the day, I'm pretty sure there's more than 10 people here who've seen the clip.

And a lot of people wouldn't even know that many music videos are on IMDb/iCM. It hasn't been so long that those have been allowed on IMDb.

One issue with Aphex Twin is that all of them use the same formula. So you just think you have seen Windowlicker again.
(Windowlicker has 571 checks)

I don't check music videos because most of them aren't on IMDb, so it's not worth the effort to search for them. Probably less than 1% of the music videos that I've watched are on IMDb.

well if we're going to make an ICM list will someone suggest a deadline? I'm snowed under right now but might get to my 11-25 list if the timing were right.

I goof now and then...sometimes the post is deletable and sometimes it isn't. I don't know what the variable is. Maybe it's only deletable immediately after posting, and then becomes un-deletable with passing hours.
