    Crowds gathered, and the people of the temp once again rejoiced! Why you ask? Well because the ever popular Name The Movie game is back! Yes that right folks, this fun game originally started by greyhound is back for another round! Come one, come all and join in!

    The rules are pretty simple, and are as follows (as originally written by greyhound)

    One person posts a screenshot of a film, any film (keep it clean), making sure it isn't impossible to guess (ie include either a lead character or make it a renowned/significant scene)....or too easy. When a successful guess has been made and confirmed to be correct by the poster of the image, the person who guessed successfully posts the next screenshot. So, if you're going to make a guess and following that post a snapshot please ensure that you check back every so often to see if someone named your movie correctly or to check if your guess was correct so that the game isn't held up too long. It's usual for 2-3 images to get posted per day. Try not to repeat movies, especially the same scene...

    Some were added as the game evolved which were :

    Remember to send the answer to the previous poster when posting a picture for your turn.
    Remember to keep the scores updated.
    Remember to update the previous posted list.
    No hotlinking to images, try to upload them to either GBAtemps picture service or somewhere like tinypic/photobucket.
    The winner of a round is the judge for the next round.

    To make it easier for people to know whether or not a pic for a particular film has been posted a list is kept along with the scores. Whenever you update the scores the list should be updated as well. You'll get the hang of it quick enough!

    Sometimes the round have a theme, but just to get the ball rolling we'll start this one as general game. So you can pick a still from a film from any era or genre.

    There is also a judge for each round for when problems occur. As I'm starting this season and there is no previous round winner I'll be the judge. [​IMG]

    Now let's get playing! I'll start the ball rolling with a cult classic! :

    I'm pretty sure that pic is from the The Matrix rather than any of the sequels. And can you remember to update both the scores and the previously posted list. The previous posted list is important for making sure that dupes aren't posted.

    Figures you'd have the same thought.

    I said it before and I'll say it again, great minds think alike! I suddenly remembered us talking about it a few weeks ago and then thought with us both being mods now the thread will be far easier to keep under control. I couldn't think of a genre or anything though. Still time to change it over if you've got some ideas?

    Well sir, we can start with sci-fi or something

    Work to adventure

    A great starter could be Disney movies! Although easy, it could draw interest.

    What do the winners receive? A free signature or something?

    While I'm not playing to win anything, just for fun, it could also draw interest.

    For the winner, we offer the same thing we've always offered:
    Extra Responsibility.

    (the winner will adjudicate the next round of the game)








    This game is apparently the training area for upcoming moderators....

    We're going to stick to just a general round this time. What usually happens is that at the end of the round there's a week break while people vote on what the next round should be.

    And nope, the winners receive no prizes, and it's extremely unlikely that it will ever be that type of game. It's purely for fun. It's a communist thread, not a capitalist one. [​IMG]

    Haha nice, if I ever get back on photoshop I may make the winner a sig if they want, I figure you might as well win something. And the voting system sounds good.

    Now if we could just get Natipoo to post...

    I've PMed Natipoo so hopefully he'll post soon enough. Sometimes it can be up to 24hrs. What usually happens is if the person whose turn it is doesn't post after 24 hours then the point is forfeited and the turn reverts back to the previous pic poster. It doesn't happen all that often though so it's not too bad.

    And the sig prize idea sounds great! I'll add it into the first post if you want.
