The only thing I'm worried about is that as a result of this experiment, certain scripts will become hot threads and others will be buried. Then when things go back to "normal", those scripts will never get read.

But that may not even happen. I'm actually really looking forward to see what happens with this experiment.

Bert mentioned something like this, but I don't see it happening.  Without the off topic boards then reviews should come rolling in.  Just reviews, nothing more. And unless somebody gets horribly offended by one of those reviews, I don't think there will be an inflation in certain script responses.  Now, maybe there will be more discussion of scripts which could possibly boost responses, but we won't know until we find out.  But that's just me.

Quoted from bert
I'd probably get a lot more done -- with scriptwriting and the stuff I am actually supposed to be doing -- if some of the chat were streamlined.


Same here. I usually start getting motivated to start writing, but then for some reason, I start to go to the other boards first.

I don't know if I would miss the boards...but I'd like to see what will happen.

I would want it to be 1 week a month for reviews. Without general discussion and things like that. It would probably damage the site quite a bit. Let's give it a go, but I don't think it should be like that permanately.


No longer around.

It's a good idea. I think doing it once every 4-6 weeks would be good. It would get us a bit more focused and more scripts would be reviewed.

MAybe Just Make the the script forums (Genres Forums) be able to have writers postthier own thread. ofcourse, the only thing it would be able to do is start a thread foryour script (one of the features is being able to attach  your won scripts) and have a logline added in. Any discussions about anyhthing ther that thread is deleted. and the threads can be delted if they are inappropiate (liek any thread). Taht would save alot of time instead of submitting, but it would probably mean alot of innapropriate (or unfinsihed) script will be submitted. Maybe only full users would post.

I'd say thats like putting gas on a fire...its just going to make it bigger. It would be just as easy for Don to post them up there, that way he can review the scripts before they ever go up there.

I'm not sure what is discussing here, but I think this site is one of more complete site in the net; lot of different forums of discussion and also there are lots of different people with different opinions. The major problem is: Bad attitudes and manners that have been judged by the webmaster and its staff.

I have more ideas for you Don, some are borderline stupid which is why I'll keep them to myself and others would boost the script threads above the general chat ones without taking away the fun boards.

We need to figure out who on this board is trailer Runs because nobody is that bad with English.

Could you be more clear Wes, please, with this: "We need to figure out who on this board is trailer Runs because nobody is that bad with English."

Helio, if you are worried that Wesley is talking about you, don't be.  He isn't.  You make more sense than Trailer Runs on your worst day.

But wouldn't it be cool if Don would make it like "Survivor" and we could all vote people "off the island"?

He's too nice to do it himself, but this way he could be, like, "Well, sorry but my hands are tied..."

Now there's a dangerous idea... I can see some merit in it as this is a community, though, and if the community wants you out, then there is little point in staying. Most people who are that bad though wouldn't take the hint and end up banned per the rules anyway. It actually seems like the system is in place without all the pesky voting.

To me, I don't think something like "Survivor" would be good. How would we do voting if there was actually going to be something like that?
