What constitutes an "enthusiastic" participant? How many films in what span of time am I dedicating myself to?

Participation levels kind of break down as follows (though of course people move between categories):

Manic = 1-4 verdicts per week. (This level of participation rarely lasts long, but it's fun while it lasts.)
Enthusiastic = 1-2 verdicts per month.
Casual = 1-2 verdicts every three months (or at least 1 verdict per bracket round).
Delinquent = 1 verdict per every ten claims of "I think I'll be able to post something this weekend."

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

Count me in as a casual delinquent.
Extraordinary (81-100˚) | Very good (61-80˚) | Good (41-60˚) | Fair (21-40˚) | Poor (0-20˚)

I'm Casual. I like to find titles I haven't seen, which means once thing get down to the later rounds I'm no longer helpful.

Participation would really depend on the theme for me.

Also keen to be Casual.
Can it be Europe + Canada+Australia+New Zealand? Those countries always get left out. :(

I would be casual, I think. More tickled by the 2010's World, as it allows Spring Breakers to assume its rightful spot as the best film ever made, but could do some 90s Euro as there are way more blindspots for me, depends on availability though.

I'm down as enthusiastic so as long as the films are accessible, as I mentioned above. Willing to go to many lengths to get films AS LONG AS someone is guiding until I start getting the hang of the many channels to gain access to films.

Btw, still struggling with The Mirror / Anyeh. 1SO tried to help, but I'm starting to feel I'm a bit hopeless.

I am willing to access less accessible films and provide them to people.
