Growth and Activity

Postby itscsalvo » Wed Jun 29, 2016 12:56 pm

So really quick thought on increasing activity on CPT.

My thought is that one of the mods will create a poll based on a specific theme (Spielberg films, terrible dinosaur movies, 70's animation, etc.) and have a selection of 3-5 movies to watch. We can vote on the movie and all watch it within a week or so. We can comment and discuss in that thread once watched. If you've already seen the movie, you should probably watch it again, unless it was in the last week or so.

A few reasons why I suggested this for activity. We all participated in GoT since it was new and we were watching it together. This idea still kind of allows the same thing, though it's not in the GoT universe. Additionally, this will broaden our horizons and watch movies we may not have normally wanted to or thought to see earlier, or even movies we've never heard of.

I think it'd be fun to see some of these types of events once every two weeks or so, and it'd be great to see the new themes coming from us.

Thoughts?

Great idea. Love it. I think once a month would be a good starting point, try to get everyone to watch it over the same weekend to maximize the conversation, but it wouldn't break anything if we had some stragglers later.

I think the format for picking the monthly movie will need some refining. I like the choosing a genre and then doing a poll. Every month someone picks a genre and then members suggest movies that fit and then we vote? This will obviously work the best if the movie spawns some kind of discussion, not just a comedy where people can say "it was funny".

So comedies with a ridiculous premise that have no right to be as enjoyable as they are? I suggest Mystery Men.

Are we saying that's the genre for the first month?

When is Marshall signing up? I think our best bet for growing the site is having more kids and forcing them to post.

Tried that once. I think Gary signed up or tried to drunkenly one time. After that there was no interest.
