Maybe 1 or 2 more weeks, give people a little extra time?
(I admit I want this for purely selfish reasons, I want to see if my Noir-vember viewings will have any impact on my list.)
I definitely understand where you're coming from. However, we (roujin and me) wanted to try and get this done before everyone gets busy with Christmas and/or the Filmspots.
That being said, the actual list announcement is probably going to be closer to Dec 15th and I've always accepted submissions right up until the night before the announcement. So people who need a little more time can always send in a late submission.
I'm hoping that we'll still have the majority of submissions by the deadline so that we can start tabulating etc and start preparing for the actual list presentation.
