I want to post a series of Member-Started Forum topics, based on films with lowly scores on Metacritic.  
My first up: The Abduction of Zack Butterfield.

Wow... Calm down... Take it easy... Chill....  

How are we supposed to start a normal discussion on your forums, if you post 9 forums at one time?? 

Here's a helpful suggestion: If you start a forum for a title no one has heard of, why don't you provide information on the film(s).  I mean like HeadRAZZ does -- links to the films' official sites, their RT or MC-scores, their trailers, or just write your motivations for starting each forum (i.e. what it is you think makes the films possible Razzie contenders)....

Does anyone but me think we should start giving limitations to this site? As in, we are only allowed to start two forums per week per member? 

update: Am I being a little bit too harsh here?   

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: I was out-of-town for the 4th of July weekend, and came back to discover the multitude of new Member Started Forums from brand-new Forum Member jesse685. While the volume of his/her postings may seem excessive, I also assume it indicates their level of enthusiasm as a newcomer. 

As for the suggestion that we limit how many Member Started Forums any one Forum Member can start up, I don't know any way of enforcing such a "rule" and, much like 27 Years' suggestion about limiting nominations only to film that achieve a pre-set threshold of lowly R.T. scores, I think the berry idea of starting to throw roadblocks into the path of our Forum's free flow of information and opinion is counter to what the RAZZIES® are all about. I see no harm in Member discussions/Forums existing for titles that have little or no hope of actually being nominated. In fact, if/when I post WINNIE THE POOH as our Worst of the Weak pick for July 15th, I will be "guilty" of doing exactly that...

No, you're not, you raise a good point. Maybe I think I should delete these forums and leave the major forums up. I only started these because these films haven't had a shot at actual forums, so I took the liberty of creating them. Also because of such low scores they've received on Metacritic (I also use R.T.).

Also, how do I delete my own forums?  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: It has alwaze been the "policy" of this Forum to only delete (or "clean up") postings that Members have brought to our attention as being either offensive, insulting or factually inaccurate. Since none of your several Forums meet any of these standards, I see no point in deleting them, and would prefer they be left up and open for replies.  They essentially add to the field of films our Members can consider and discuss as possible contenders, while in no way diminishing or damaging the intent of the Forum itself...

I don't know if you can...

Personally I wouldn't delete them, because that also sounds kind of extreme...

Don't just make discissions, take a minute to think before you post something (that's what i am saying). It will make your input here just that much better...

Most of these forums will probably find activity.... Dylan Dog was a god awfull movie, Monte Carlo has been widly discussed here and The Invisible Sign stars last years Razzie winner Jessica Alba...

As for Zack Butterfield, Love, Wedding, Marriage and A Love Affair of Sorts. I wonder if the HeadRAZZ can merge them into one forum, naming it:  What's the Worst Limited Release of 2011?

update: Is my English really that bad. I suggested to merge these three existing forums into a new forum with that title, I didn't suggest to start a new forum with that title...

Awesome, let's do it.

Okay, I'll send a message to the HeadRAZZberry and ask him if it's possible...

update: It seems his that his mailbox is full  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: Thanx for the hedz-up about my Private Messenger In-Box -- Never got a notification that it was indeed "full," but just deleted about 65% of what was cluttering it, so I should now be able to get in-coming messages...

You do that, I've got a forum topic running currently, now we just wait for members to tell us what horrible limited releases they've seen.

Also, Vheid, you should look at my topics for Bad Teacher and Larry Crowne, let me know what you think, my good friend.

You really are pushing the worst movie of the week!

HeadRAZZ, I'll admit that I went too far on this. I should have backed down a little, and maybe shouldn't have been so harsh towards him/her. 

So... sorry for my behavior earlier, Jesse.

Also, HeadRAZZBerry, thank you for giving a forum for my topics.

I don't mind more sub-forums about little known movies being added here, if only to give us more to talk about besides movies featuring giant fighting robots or supernatural romances. But chances are almost none of them will get a nod for anything.

I'm with the majority here (for once); only SEVEN reviewers (5 "top" critics) even bothered to acknowledge this "film" (which has not received even a "limited" release nationwide), and with a never-heard-of-em cast I don't see the point of even bothering with such a nonentity when the likes of The Change-Up Nuke need/deserve a forum of its own...
