    I liked some previous ideas: Stairs, sports

    Another idea:
    Couples (2 people in the shot, no more no less)

    And since this site is named What The Movie, it's way too soon to have another TV Series contest (assuming we'll have another some day).
    No, we want you guys to suggest themes for a regular contest (feature films only): so no DtM, no TV Series.

    • CommentTimeDec 22nd 2015
    Don't take a light-hearted remark (and suggestion for a due website) too serious!

    But - since you asked - New Year, both Solar and Lunar?
    Magic! That'd be great!

    Happy Holidays!

    "regular contest (feature films only)" ;-)
    Short Movies was already suggested before (2 years ago?) and the answer was: it will never happen, too complicated for us Staff to handle it.

    i like the idea to have a theme which many people know as a quote of a well known movie "see you in space Cowboy" - allowed space, spaceship, moon, sun, stars etc. or "in a galaxy far, far away" if 1st suggestion is too huge

    or Strange machines - weird/bizarre vehicles you usually not see in real life

    or usually machines like:
    - planes
    - ships

    objects like
    - bridges
    - silhouette of city/building

    usually objects many movies have (with no people on the shot) like
    - drinking glass
    - empty rooms
    - postcards or poster at the wall
    - keys

    "Stairs" sounds nice - but elevators and escalators, ladders and ropes for climbing and so far and so on should be added, too.
    "up and down" as theme-name?

    • CommentAuthorAsmodai
    • CommentTimeFeb 15th 2016
    The "problem" with that is that it's relatively easy, because you have double the hints to actually solve the shot. If you know what movie is in the movie, it's easy to figure out what movie has the movie in the movie. ;) But we'll remember it, you never know :)
    • CommentAuthoryhi
    • CommentTimeFeb 28th 2016

    I think this was already discussed in the forum, but I definitely find that one week for solving is really short (if you have something planned on the weekend and not much time on the evening, it's difficult to allocate enough time for the vault).
    I hope we could go back to two weeks of solving for next contests.

    Does anyone agree with me or everybody is ok with one week solving only ?
    • CommentAuthorAsmodai
    • CommentTimeFeb 28th 2016
    There have been discussions and a poll about this, and it was really tied: some like 1 week, others prefer 2 weeks. Therefore, we usually try to mix it up a bit.

    Let's try to start this up again, so please go ahead and provide suggestions for themes, a poll will follow soon.

    Stuff like TV series, Shorts, made for TV movies, non-existing movies, movies from Mars, or ice-bucket challenges will not go through at this time.

    some of my old suggestions again didn´t made it:

    "see you in space Cowboy" - allowed space, spaceship, moon, sun, stars, planets withour earth etc.
    "in a galaxy far, far away" - same just without everything in our sun system - if 1st theme is too big)
    "silhouette of city/building"
    "empty rooms"

    new ones:
    "fire/firepower" - all kind of fire on shot to see include bonfire, chimney fire, muzzle flash etc.
    "military" - uniformes, vehicles etc.
    "construction&destruction" - everything something is/go destroyed or is under construction - if too huge, maybe both as single suggestion
