Re: The Future of THAC (and BRAWL)

I agree that THAC should be only once per year, but two or three BRAWLs (or one BRAWL and two other contests) sounds very nice.

Concerning the "C" in THAC I like it! In my opinion there is no need to have prizes at all, since the ranking has enough prestige for a brickfilmer. Though a ranking system like this would be great, it definitely needs polishing and discussion how what is rated. Or it's just up to the host.

I think that's a very good system, but it's a lot of work for the judges. However, I really don't think the entries on the lower half of the list should be listed, if you know what I mean. It can't be fun to be placed last in contests like this.

Re: The Future of THAC (and BRAWL)

I think there should be a vote in the forum, where people can actually click on certain choices like "THAC once a year". Then you add up the votes. Same thing for BRAWL. That would be the easiest if Harry and the rest didn't want to make the say all themselves.

I wouldn't trust a democratic vote any farther than I could throw it.

And since a democratic vote is an intangible object, I wouldn't throw it very far.

I agree, we need to establish a republic!

Re: The Future of THAC (and BRAWL)

Couldn't this forum's poll function be used for the vote? I think only mods can access it because I remember Smeagol used it for the bricks in motion census at the start of last year.

What we need is a multi-party coalition dictatorship with a senate representatively elected by the populace, and a ceremonial figurehead in the form of an absolute constitutional monarchy.

Don't forget a Supreme Leader to make sure the government follows the principles of [insert religion here]

Monarchy all the way.
I am the king of dutch angles, therefore I am the only royal here.

Re: The Future of THAC (and BRAWL)

Comrades, im not pretending to be a moderator, but this is really getting out off topic,

Everyone knows a rigidly feudal, fascist despot society under the temporary guise of a quasi-marxist system is the right way to tackle this situation. Jeese.

Re: The Future of THAC (and BRAWL)

Can't a moderator set up a poll or something, and therefore we can stop arguing and just vote for what we prefer. I'd suggest there be four options

  • Two BRAWLs and Two THACS

  • One BRAWL and Two THACs

  • Two BRAWLs and One THAC

  • One BRAWL and One THAC

That's just what I think, but you can go on with whatever nonsense you were talking about if you wish. That may have sounded a bit rude, but you guys are really ignoring the fact of the matter. Can we please return to the topic?

We have all that in England (a coalition government with a Prime Minister, an elected parliament, and a Queen). Its an absolute mess.

Politics aside, a poll would probably be a good idea to determine the overall public opinion. It doesn't have to be a final solution, just a barometer...

Re: The Future of THAC (and BRAWL)

Max makes a good point there.
Though, don't forget to include options involving a two day contest.

Re: The Future of THAC (and BRAWL)

Yes, please set up a poll. That's what I was saying before.
