If you're cool with it, would you mind taking over  this process again Johnny? I didn't know the ins and outs, I don't have a data plan on my phone so I'm not always board ready. Whatever you folks would like to do is cool by me.

Is there a reason the Christmas LoC thread is locked?

Sorry about that. Pushed the wrong button. Blame it on the tryptophan! :^)

So the question is, what is to be done with LoC #100?

Feels like it should be something special. One idea that was often thrown around was to do Top 50 LoCs. What else would be worthy of the 100th list?

The problem with top 50 LoCs is that the LoCs are a bit ephemeral.  I'm not saying all of them are forgotten immediately, but I think a lot of people here wouldn't know what to list or have particularly strong feelings.

I also wouldn't want to do top 50 forum members.  I just don't like the idea of ranking people.

My two choices would be thus:

Top 50 Full Length Rifftrax (since this is a rifftrax board)
Top 50 TV Shows, which was our first LoC topic since Greg McDuck (Rest in Absentia) started this whole thing.

Both are relatively vanilla, but not too hard to do or to draw in interest.

Why limit it?  Why not the top 50 of any Rifftrax?

I'm still interested in hosting Top 50 MST3K Costumes. This could also include variations,  like robot Mike and extruded ingot Crow.

I think somebody should go through the preious polls we've done. There are a lot of interesting ideas we've had in the past that just never got the most votes at the time.

I kind of like the idea of returning to the Top 50 TV Shows well. Full circle. I suppose we can host a poll like we always do and we'll see what rises to the top.

Whatever we pick, I'd love to do another "Best of the Rest" like we did at 50.

Personally, I might wait till after the holidays for an official call for submissions, but people can send me theirs any time.

And yes, I'm definitely up for another 50 days of the Rest of the Best.
