Let's see how this goes over.

My tendency to drop projects over time aside (apologies in advance, I acknowledge that I suck and disappear sometimes), I think the Entertainment forum here has some of the most original and entertaining discussion/threads on the site. That being said, do you guys have any suggestions on how to make it even better? Here's a temporary place to toss ideas around about ways to get a bunch of users involved, through any means.

Here's my one example that I have so far: Maybe a weekly TV show/movie stickied thread. I don't know how this would be set up, but it could be a poll with a theme relating to a current event/relevant date (Christmas, etc.) and the most popular movie/show fitting that theme would get more exposure through an official thread and get stickied to try and spawn further discussion? Maybe I'm just crazy and spitballing but this seems like one of the best ways to get more eyes on an underappreciated piece of media.

What do you guys think, what are ideas you guys have? Let's talk.

I'm a big fan of the Entertainment polls. There's been a lot less recently, I miss them.

I really like the movie of the week being stickied idea too.

Any elaboration on how we could make an idea like that run as smoothly as possible? I'm blanking for the time being.

Starting this Friday, I think I'm going to start a weekly box-office prediction thread. I think that'll be somewhat fun and could have potential.

This has been discussed a little in some other threads, but I really think it would be awesome if we could have 2 different spoiler tags.

Maybe they could be 2 different colors...

One for "past" spoilers, meaning spoilers of stuff that has happened in older episodes/movies and then one for "future" spoilers that could be for spoilers of stuff that will happen in future episodes/movies

This way people can look at threads for movies/shows they haven't already seen, but are interested in seeing without worrying about spoilers

That would be nice to have, but it seems like more work for the people who need to drop the spoiler tags in their own posts.

yeah it might be more work, but is it really that much trouble to type

[pastspoiler] [/pastspoiler]
or
[futurespoiler] [/futurespoiler]

I think it would improve the entertainment forum quite a bit. I know a lot of people have to avoid threads just because they are behind on a show when they might have something valuable to add to the thread...

Maybe a user-based movie/episode/game review set up like the album reviews we have

I know a lot of us watch things online/DVR so maybe we could pick a show each week and have a live chat while we watch.
