    Actually, apart from setting up the Rules for submitting and ruling on 3 Appeals, I’ve only done the same routine work as the rest of the Review Panel. And that’s plenty!

    Oh wait, no – I lied. I also hired one more member for the Review Panel.

    Hmm, I wonder if it’s time to hire another?

    Nothing to say about the ratings system being completely redesigned, Ladon? Seems notable to me.

    Ah, I forgot when this speech was supposed to be starting from. My mistake!

    We’ve made a notable change to the ratings system this year, with the complete redesign of the ratings input system.

    Forgot that slight detail.

    AOO, I thought yours was a bit more exciting simply because it wasn’t mine.

    To all of the other ministers, I hope you’re enjoying your duties! (I’m watching you.)

    I’d be interested, providing you are in fact looking for another reviewer. I may be very busy, but I’ve always wanted to be in the review panel.

    Same here, but let’s not turn this thread into a ‘I want to be on the Review Panel’ thread.

    Can’t wait :) .

    When I saw “…brickfilms… fall of 2007″ I thought something awful had happened.

    Brickfilms Development

    Life in the development lane for Brickfilms is speeding up right now. We’re in the midst of developing several new things for the patrons of the site in a hopes to replace and possibly even surpass the usefulness of the web hosting feature of previous patrons, which is now depreciated. We’re also looking to create some tighter integration with the forums and tie the films section in better with the community.

    Also, in order to give all of these updates the best possible user experience from the get go (and to reduce stress on us developers) we’ve created a small group of beta testers who are provided with early access to all of these features. In addition to testing out features, the beta testers are also asked to contribute ideas and actively participate in the new flow of brickfilms.

    We’re really pushing to get a lot of stuff out to you guys by November and continue to add things throughout the course of the year.

    Lot’s of exciting things happening. Make sure to stay tuned.

    This done thus far:

    QuickPM :: Ability to send PMs via ajax in a thread without leaving the page or having to load a significant amount of network usage.
    Ratings Revamp :: Complete ratings system revamp with editable, removable and moderated ratings.
    Control Panel Organization :: A couple quick fixes to the Control Panel to give it tabs and help organize content.
    Relevance Rating :: An optional search style (set it in the control panel under the question mark) that shows films in order of relevance.
    Youtube Embedding :: Allows you to embed youtube videos into posts on the forums using the [youtube] tag. Meant for the P&R forum, but useful elsewhere.

    Well…I noticed my name on Rev’s list so I feel rather obligated to say something, although I’m not sure what.

    As Election Commissioner, I try to keep you all updated on the state of the elections during election time. Although unfortunately I was unable to contribute much during the last election (in July) because of moving over the summer. I should be able to properly oversee elections in December though – and will probably have some pre-election posts before then.

    As far as my other forum duties go, they’re not really defined. I probably know more about the social and emotional state of every one of you. (*evil grin*) But that’s not really something to be reported on.

    Is there anything in particular I need to give an update on?

    You’re right. I’ve simply been so caught up in this revamp that I thought that was what he was referring to when he asked me to comment on the state of Brickfilms. :P

    The Brickfilms Wiki is doing alright. Unfortunately most of the contributions as of late have been from spammers rather than brickfilmers like it should be.

    I suppose the most notable news regarding it would be the addition of Josh Parris as a wiki curator.

    I’ll comment more when I get out of school. :P
