    I am a little unhappy with the new design for the forums on mobile, especially because we cannot see the time for the latest posts in each thread in the forums home pages anymore.

    Thanks for pointing this out, Gus! The improvements we’re making in the forums are not done yet. We need valuable input like this from you — well fix the time issue. TX

    When I visit the Movies Thread and proceed to the next page, it directs me to Charlie’s Angels.

    Is anyone else having issues with the odd’s for choices not showing up in the Oscar prediction center?
    I open the prediction center for Emmy’s my odds show at what I locked in at and what the current odd’s for choices are, but not in the Oscar Prediction Center.

    Every time I edit one of my comments, the site algorithm acts like it no longer exists, even though it does. The comment no longer appears on my activity log. I can’t quote it. And I can’t delete it. It’s just… there. Why? Because apparently whenever I edit a comment for any reason it suddenly “needs to be approved by a moderator.” And never has a moderator approved it. Very frustrating.

    Can someone fix this please? 🙁

    The Oscar and SAG odds are still non-existent in the predictions center.

    We’re now in the process of reconfiguring the way we do racetrack odds, so we don’t want to debut them for Oscars and SAG until we nail that down. We’re working on it! Stay tuned!

    Any updates on when we can expect the odds in the prediction centre? Seems to be taking an awful long time.

    Looks like the odds are back. Get them rankings in!

    I’d love if you could add more categories to the predictions, mainly the Grammys and also some of the missing categories on the Oscars. I always disliked the little amount of predictions that were available for the Grammys. As far as the design maybe a switch up on the main page or Atleast on the predictions part. It’s been the same for awhile so just an idea.

    Can we get notifications when someone quotes your comment instead of getting useless notifications when someone replies in a thread you’ve created?

    Steven Yeun never being added in the prediction center for LAFCA when people asked for his name to be added both in the forum topic and in private message is a recent example of the problem that there doesn’t seem to be people routinely checking the forums.

    That creates examples like this where there is a lack of communication between users and administrators and it allows harmful users (I can think of a few that are outwardly racist) to keep posting on the forums without repercussions.

    Of course I know that you can’t check every forum topic because there’s so many but you know the popular ones and just checking in once in a while can make the forums a better environment to post in.

    Absolutely love Gold Derby website. I joined just yesterday and binge watched all the all the videos 🙂

    Might be cool though if there is a parallel ranking based on our actual favourites and not just predictions. As I understand it the prediction rankings are based on what members consider the probability of the films are to win, which does not necessarily match our actual favourites.

    (Forgive my ignorance about this stuff) Still learning about the different factors at play how the different academies decide the nominations. Apparently all sorts of parameters like who the voters are (film makers or critics or academics etc), the time of submission, the “this actor has been been nominated many times and is “owed” a win”-factor and even this “backlash” thing which is super weird.

    I’m really enjoying everything on the site though. Thanks again Tom!
