Sorry it's taken so long, but this project is not in the front of my mind at the moment. Last I remember there are still differences of opinion on how to proceed and who to include. I like your list and could proceed along those lines, though I'm sure contributions will create conflicts, just like your list has some questionable choices.

I haven't swayed from thinking we should start with a Writers or Screenplay Pantheon - either All Time or from this century - contributed by all who care to participate.

Perhaps a poll.

I don't think anyone could possibly accuse you of neglecting any kind of forum work.

I went with Contemporary Screenwriters. I think rating the scripts independently of the movie would prove too complicated and we would end up mostly rating the movies and replicating past Pantheon projects. I am also working from the assumption that we would have more ease working from recent works first, and then possibly move to older writers.

What kind of forum powers do you have that allow you to modify posts like a mod ?

I am not sure of my powers, except in the Director sub-board where I appear to have a lot of extra ability.

The poll has us more divided than Republicans. I don't see a solution anytime before the end of Summer.

Wait until we get to the Convention and the silent majority speaks out.

If I'm being honest with myself, I would likely not participate in a writers/screenplay project.

I've had thoughts along these lines, but they've mostly been focused on the "writer as auteur" -- many of which are included in the Director's threads.  But say, Charlie Kauffman, is included for the couple movies he's directed, but that's not where his greatest influence lay.  And Aaron Sorkin gets nothing.  But they are certainly auteurs as much as any director.

What I wonder about is compiling a group list of auteur screenwriters, in which all of their films would be included.  I was thinking of polls of their work, like the Director's polls.  But is that the best approach?

I think we'd have to see a list and there'd be some time debating who should be included in the project.

I unfortunately don't know enough to be much help here. I am completely oblivious about Hammet for example. I do wish for some project of this kind to happen though. If I can assist in some way I will.
