Unstickify, please! Can't Post

The screencap of the day sign-up thread for March still has a sticky on it. It's probably more than ready to be let go. Tongue

Feel free to sticky the current thread for May, if you'd like. If not, I'll make a request next week.

Done! Hey, has there been discussion about [In reply to] Can't Post

starting a SCOD for The Hobbit:AUJ? Now that the DVD/Blu Ray is out, might be a good project for the summer.

Not yet, [In reply to] Can't Post

though it's passed my mind in the past. I figured waiting on the extended editions might be good, for consistency's sake. Tongue

Thanks, entmaiden!

AUJ SCOD [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not sure how many we have left for the LOTR trilogy, but would we be ready for an AUJ SCOD after finishing Return of the King? I'd certainly look forward to such a discussion because it'll be nice to be able to go through the movie and discuss it more in depth.

Also, would it be on the Hobbit board? I'd think it would get quickly swallowed.

That's the other thing, of course, [In reply to] Can't Post

With how fast threads circulate in the Hobbit boards, it probably would get swallowed, but it also would likely see a lot of action anyway.

In terms of finishing the current run on LotR, I'd say we still have nearly a year yet to go. We normally cover eight parts a month, and we're currently in the third act of TTT. If memory serves, RotK has about 80-90 parts, so that alone will take about ten months to get through (this is if we wanted to only do one SCOD at a time, too). I'll get some opinions later down the road and play it by ear, but I do hope we get the Hobbit SCOD off the ground at some point.

I didn't realize [In reply to] Can't Post

Wow, I didn't realize each film took so long. I'll look forward to the AUJ discussions whenever those end up happening Smile

Thanks for organizing these!

That's occurred to me, too. [In reply to] Can't Post

I would love to start some SCOD type discussions for THAUJ but I don't think the board will allow for it. It moves too fast.

and, even though it's been shot down... this is why I thought a board to discuss the movies that have been released that was separate from a speculation, spoiler, news board would be nice.

Nice, but not practical [In reply to] Can't Post

We'll spend more time discussing whether an item belongs on the News board or the other. Once the rules get complicated, they get broken.
