That's what their reply was to me to when i went back to the site to post approx seventeen minutes later, i found i was banned and that was their reason, no other explanation was given to me and i had broken no rules, ( I didn't have time to break the rules ) anyways so people know who i am, i use the same screen name at any site i join, it worked against me at that site.

Whats wrong with your screen name? :huh:

I hope to see another one of these at some point, these guessing contests. I made the request to TT, They told me to ask you. So now I have. Thanks.

Someone at AVS doesn't like me and is a forum moderator at Bluray.com, that's my guess, anyhoo i wrote that post ages ago.

No, not at all.  I just didn't think TT was overly impressed with the game in the first place.

UPDATESpoke with Twilight Time.  They sent me a few titles that I could start another

guessing game with.

 

I just need to look over and consider the many suggestions in this thread that

all of you gave to make the game harder so that it's not over within an hour or two.

Okay, I am going to *tentatively* start a new game later this afternoon.

 

Here are some suggestions, directly from some of you.  

 

Maybe yes or no questions without specifics such as the year, the actors names, plot.

 

 

My vote here is that the game involves Ron giving out a clue and then people can guess but I think the one guess only thing works because with the group posting here these are going to get sorted out pretty quickly. If you only have one guess you will need to use it wisely. 

 

 

Perhaps to prolong the game each member could ask one question and have one guess. Then Mr Epstein posts only at the end of each day with the winner (the first to guess correctly) or indicates who is warm etc and provide a further clue.

 

 

 

If I missed anyone's suggestion.  Apologies.  I just skimmed the thread.  Feel free to contribute ideas.

 

Here is what I am proposing based on these suggestions:

 

 

[color=#b22222;]1. No questions on actors, year, plot, genre.  I will attempt to give out the most [/color]

[color=#b22222;]obscure clue possible.  Don't know if I can be that clever, but I will try.  If anyone[/color]

[color=#b22222;]here thinks they can be an expert in obscurity, I might be willing to take on a volunteer[/color]

[color=#b22222;]to help me with this contest.  The title(s) will be revealed in any event so I don't mind[/color]

[color=#b22222;]sharing with someone that wants to help.[/color]

 

[color=#b22222;]2. One question and one guess per member each day.[/color]

 

[color=#b22222;]3. We can either allow guesses to be public or members can PM me and I can [/color]

[color=#b22222;]announce those who guessed it correctly (without revealing answer), and thus, [/color]

[color=#b22222;]keeping the contest going for everyone else.   I am just not certain I want to deal[/color]

[color=#b22222;]with all the private messages....but I am willing to try the idea.[/color]

 

I will give you guys a few hours to look over the proposal and let me know what

you think.

 

I may start the contest by 12 noon EST today.  Worst case would be Sunday, as

I can monitor the thread more closely.

If you need some assistance on obscurity, I might be able to help.

I can as well.  I'm an expert in obscure things about films especially pre 80's.

Classic Golden Age titles will sit there gathering dust while every 80s piece of crap sells out immediately.  I've never quite seen anything like it.  

Bruce, you are my hero.  And, not only because of the wonderful soundtracks you put out.  I just hope and pray that there are more Golden Age titles in the upcoming batch!
