Great idea about the point system, and yeah, I am more than willing to organize it. I'm just looking for as much input as possible before I start in on it to make sure that it ends up, um, well done for lack of better phrasing. Also, for people who would participate, say so in this thread so I can get a feel for whether there would be enough participation to even give this more than a cursory thought.
There are alot of different animation polls that have been done on this site, just search for post titles with the word "animation" in them, might be a good place to start. Revive some polls, or better yet start new ones, you could lay the groundwork and advertise your effort using polls like that. I would be willing to participate.
While I agree this would be interesting, I actually think it would change less than you believe. The 100 through 50 might be radically different, and there might be some reshuffling of places, but it'd mostly be the same names on the list again.
I'd be more interested in doing a list of writers (film and print), actors, characters, something along those lines.
Well, reshuffling is what these lists are all about. I am sure a few new names will pop up, and a few old ones will drop off. Also, there are some new films/directors that people may feel belong on the list. Mostly, it would be a great census of the filmspotting community, and where it is going.
I agree about acting/writing lists, by all means we should do all of them.
