So the way Survivor works, is you vote for the movie you like least in the respective groupings. After a couple days, I'll eliminate the highest vote-getter and then the remaining movies will be re-posted and so on until eventually there's a merger and so on until we determine NPP's Best Best Picture Winner.

I read this the wrong way Skooch. I meant to vote for Titanic not BOTRK.

did you just seriously flood entertainment with like 7 shitty threads on this?

This will go down in atrocious infamy

Skooch
01-31-2008, 01:15 AM
Because so much was going on.

Taff's going to be busy tomorrow. Seriously, why not try one and see if there's any interest and if the idea gets totally shit on before starting 800 threads about it.

Skooch
01-31-2008, 01:20 AM
Why would Taff be busy tomorrow? These are all legitimate Entertainment threads. Scots is looking into whether or not there's an option to have multiple polls in one thread.

Then maybe you should've waited until he looked into it further.

Skooch
01-31-2008, 01:23 AM
Again, it's not like there was anything else going on, but I understand your point.

Just await some epic backlash tomorrow. 8 threads is a bit much. Weren't you going to eliminate many of these movies anyway?

Skootch sez "It's ok to spam the forums, as long as they're not busy."

8 threads OMG oh the humanity! Stop being FAGITS. I told him todo it, and I stand by it.

Gay. And entertainment is famous for threads that get bumped alot and now all the shit goes back another page and most of those threads get too annoying to find and die.

Well thought out. Really.

Sidenote: the overall look of the forum when people see it the first time is a shit first impression. I clicked on entertainment and immediately IM'd Scots to ask why SkooTch had flooded the entertainment forum before I even knew what it was.

People see 8 new threads and they go "why did he fuck up the forum?" immediately. First impressions.

No! The Broadway Melody is about a bunch of dudes lusting after some chick. It's the most "sexually perverse without meaning to be" film I've ever seen! LET IT LIVE!

Like instantly? Were there a few seconds between looking at them and IM'ing him, did you even click and open the threads. Give me a time in seconds.

I know, in some cases you may have to go a further page back. Only some mind, It is only 8 threads

You tell me what qualifies as epic and I'll do it for you.

I really want Annie Hall to win so I need some suggestions for gimmick accounts.

I already got TOASTFACE and treguard. Any more suggestions Osiris?

EDIT: on seconds thoughts make it Titanic. I love that film

The thing i remember about Titanic was I was sitting with Lorena and her family even though I knew she was seeing Bryan already and I cried like a mad little faggot thru the whole thing.

I loved the story before the film. Plus I watched Night to Remember so I already knew 3/4 of the film

If nobody wants to play then fine, we'll chalk it off. But don't kill Skootch for starting threads.

Of course it's a terrible idea and the voting process looks like it could take around a year if we only eliminate one movie every time, but it's his right as a USAmerican and NPP poster to start threads on it.

buckdiddy
01-31-2008, 01:03 PM
I say top three from each group gets eliminated.

Osiris
01-31-2008, 02:12 PM
Its a great idea provided people are non-retarded enough to read before voting.

Hun
01-31-2008, 02:56 PM
Wrong.

It's fucking stupid to ask people to say they dislike a film if they haven't seen it. Even you haven't seen ever film in the groups, so for NPP to say, "HAY, THE LIFE OF EMILE ZOLA IS MY LEAST FAVOURITE," even thought they've probably not seen Wings or Gentleman's Agreement, is fucking retarded.

Osiris
01-31-2008, 02:59 PM
Wrong.

Hun
01-31-2008, 03:06 PM
Elaborate, FAGIT

Osiris
01-31-2008, 03:09 PM
Nobody has seen all the movies on the list. That's why you start out voting for the ones that you haven't seen or actively hate and then wittle it down to the ones that are actual contenders. Its not a countdown, its elevating one movie above all of the others. And you have to start with all of them because some people (like me) are actually smart enough to enjoy films from all eras.

Boner
01-31-2008, 03:10 PM
You love Osiris so much don't you?

Osiris
01-31-2008, 03:11 PM
He's perfect.

Hun
01-31-2008, 03:14 PM
I enjoy films from all eras, too. I have the classics such as Casablanca, Singing In The Rain, a lot of old film noir, etc.

However, I think the poll would have been a lot better if it had been along the lines of: "Vote for which of these movies you prefer" and then taking the one(s) with the least votes out of the competition instead of getting people to put preference over which of the films they haven't seen.

And enjoying films from all eras does not make you smart, it just means you're not a philestine, like so many people our age seem to be.

Actually, as an aside, I wanted to slap the guy i live with beacuse he wanted to watch a comedy a few Sunday ago and I had just picked up a Marx Brothers box set and suggested Duck Soup to him. Not only had he never heard of it, he said,

"I'm not in the mood to watch a black and white film."

That made me sad.

Osiris
01-31-2008, 03:15 PM
You live with Boner?

You can't put 87 or whatever options into a poll.

Hun
01-31-2008, 03:34 PM
Boner wishes he lived with me.

And of course you can't put 87 options in a poll, but a bit of common sense to narrow the field down before hand would have made this thing work.

As it is, it's destined to follow so many other debacles.

Osiris
01-31-2008, 03:37 PM
You can't narrow the field down. Its not 'Best Picture Post 1976', its Best of the Best Pictures. For instance, I'm sure that 80% haven't seen On The Waterfront but its top ten easy.

Hun
01-31-2008, 03:39 PM
Then it should have been done in a different format with more preparation than this.

Boner
01-31-2008, 03:40 PM
Osiris is still under the impression that his opinion is peachy keen for everyone else's.

Osiris
01-31-2008, 03:40 PM
Bender told him to do it immediately so as to be finished by Oscar time.

Hun
01-31-2008, 03:42 PM
I assume there is going to be a special NPP Oscar awarded to the "Best of the Best" film?

Osiris
01-31-2008, 03:53 PM
You are correct sir.

Hun
01-31-2008, 03:55 PM
And which person shall be presenting the award?

Boner
01-31-2008, 03:55 PM
Osiris, of course.

Ormie
01-31-2008, 08:14 PM
Seriously, why not try one and see if there's any interest and if the idea gets totally shit on before starting 800 threads about it.

Great advice. Then after this trial run we could move to multiple votes where people vote for their 3 most hated and it would go by a billion times faster. But you can't edit the polls so we're screwed now.

Skooch
01-31-2008, 08:37 PM
I say top three from each group gets eliminated.

I actually like this idea a lot, if only to make the thing go quicker.


However, I think the poll would have been a lot better if it had been along the lines of: "Vote for which of these movies you prefer" and then taking the one(s) with the least votes out of the competition instead of getting people to put preference over which of the films they haven't seen.

The only reason the poll is "vote for the one you want to eliminate" is because that's the format the actual Survivor goes by.

Lets see. Who's opinion should matter more? Someone that is aware of 49 of the candidates or someone that is aware of three and thought Grandma's Boy was really kick ass?

I assume degrading Grandma's Boy is why he was banned. Well done, Scots- I hope Cena wins at No Way Out and WM.
