LAMB Report #5

by Dylan · June 10, 2008 · Uncategorized · 4 Comments

It’s been awhile. Let’s take a look at the LAMB for a status update…

LAMB Membership
Some sad news to report, as the LAMB saw a drop off from April’s record high of 24 entries back down to a March-matching total of 18. How to get that back up? Looks like it’s networking time…

After much debate about how to do this best, I decided to run with a process that I think makes it pretty easy for you and for me, and at the same time, encourages activity at the LAMB Forums. See the recent first entry for instructions and a look at it. Let’s get some high participation here – I think this feature shows a good representation of the LAMBs’ collective thoughts, and besides – it’s a free link!

As always, if you have suggestions, let’s hear ’em.

LAMB Categories
I’ve updated the “Join” post for the first time in a while to ask prospective new members to share two additional pieces of information for their profiles. First is which of the following categories do their sites fit under: Reviews, News, Editorials, Humor, Horror, or General. Selecting more than one is fine, and if they have additional categories, they’re free to give me those, too.

I ask the same of all you existing LAMBs. I’d like to go back and update all of your profiles with categories, with the intention of adding buttons or links to the sidebar for each category. So, if you will, please shoot me an email with one or more categories for your site(s).

Additionally, I’m asking the newbies for ratings for their sites, using the MPAA as a guideline. So, here’s your chance to be your own rating board. Is your site G, PG, PG-13, R, or NC-17. Let me know.

New Events
The voting’s not over yet, but it looks as though the LAMB Movie of the Month feature will end up being called…the LAMB Movie of the Month. Works for me. Thanks to Rachel from Rachel’s Reel Reviews for heading up this new feature.

Nick from R2D2 and I have dreamed up a new Sirens-style event that he’ll be running. I’m looking forward to it a lot, as I think we all learned much from the last go round. As a bonus, I had Mrs. Fletch work up a doozy of a “logo” for it that just kills me. Coming soon…

Finally, Nick has another top secret feature that he’s working on, only it’s so top secret that even I don’t know when it’s starting.

    I swear I’ll get to it!

    I’ve started working out at the gym now, so I’m even more tired than I used to be. Damn overweight-ness.

    Anywho, both events/projects should be functional soon.

    Fletch, there are some rumors on the internet that Nick’s feature has something to do with Nic Cage.

    Like maybe an appreciation month, or a day of the week set aside for Cage worship… not sure, just rumors, but I thought I should let you know.

    p.s. Maybe the MPAA should insert a new rating between PG-13 and R… PG-17.

  3. Nick says:

    lol… PG-17 IS R. As in, you have to be 17 in order to see a Rated-R film.

    As for Nic Cage… HOW DID YOU KNOW?!


  4. Fox says:

    durr!! Damn, I really screwed the pooch on that one…

    Hmmm, maybe I could make it PG-16… ah hell, I’m digging myself a ditch, aren’t I!? I’m officially ejecting myself from this idea!
