Could we get a deadline that we have to vote by?

Either

filmspotting100@googlemail.com
or
filmspotting100@gmail.com

will work.

I think the problem is in the original post, there's a .  at the end of the address which, obviously, shouldn't be there.

My poor formatting most likely lead to it, blame staying up til 5am the day before to watch the UFC.

Great, now I have another excuse to go back and watch all those movies that might be my favorites. Guess I better plot out my schedule now...

A question, does it make a difference what order we place the movies in? Does my #1 pick carry more weight than my #20?

It's just me, but I think I'd favour a system where pick 1 is worth 20 points and pick 20 worth 1 point (or perhaps a less extreme variation)... That way if someone happens to REALLY like something that's pretty obscure it won't necessarily get dropped from the list just because they're the only person who has seen it, and thereby the person won't just omit the film outright knowing it'll be an irrelevant vote (ie it ensures a submission that's truer to the members actual opinion).

Example:
Member X's alltime favourite movie is ObscureMovieX say, and nobody else has seen it.
Member A & B's 20th picks are both Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Boom, ObscureMovieX won't see the light of day. Is that right? Is that the most accurate representation of the collective's beliefs? I don't honestly know, but I think it warrants some thought.

Perhaps a milder weighted voting system like 1-5 worth 4pts, 6-10 worth 3pts and so on. At least for the first round so people feel that their opinions might make the top 200 and get, at the very least, a glancing acknowledgment.

Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Can we do 100 Years, 100 Laughs next?

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

This is so up my alley.  I've kept bar graphs and pie charts on all films I've seen since 1987.

You want to know who I thought Deserved Best Sound Mix in 1992... I have an answer.
