So Electric was able to finish Year 5 Domestic Totals but never got to Overseas Numbers for the films that year. CJohn did his own version of OS numbers but we never agreed to approve them. The way I see it we have 4 options:

 

 

1) Forget about Year 5 Overseas numbers entirely, leaving all films with an unknown Worldwide gross

 

2) Adopt CJohn's Numbers, with or without some revisions http://forums.boxoffice.com/index.php?/topic/8138-year-5-totals/page-3

 

3) Appoint a single person to determine the overseas numbers for Year 5 films. 

4) Appoint a group of 3-4 people to work on Year 5 overseas numbers, essentially dividing up the year into thirds or quarters and working on their respective piece, and them compiling it all together after the other members "approve" the overseas totals done by each member.

 

 

Please pick the option you think we should do and why. I think Option 1 can't be done because a number of Year 5 films will have sequels (or have had sequels already) and knowing the Worldwide numbers for the Year 5 outing helps future people determine WW numbers for the sequels.

Ok, I see that buried in the year 5 totals thread CJohn went on his own to do what he thought OS numbers could look like.

 

But I don't think we ever formally approved them. I will update the poll to include an option to formally adopt CJohn's numbers.

I think we should get someone to determine them or at least revise CJohn's numbers since we don't know for sure how much work CJohn put into them, and if they are completely random or based off of something...

So it looks like adopting CJohn's numbers is the runaway favorite.

 

I have added a second poll question asking whether we should accept his numbers as they are, or if we should appoint a person or two to revise them.

CJohn's OS Numbers He Made:

I decided to do some sort of OS numbers. If you guys like it, these can stay and be the official ones. In the sequels, I have no idea how much the previous movie made, so I went with some random numbers based on reality.

Guys, again, this was totally random, so don't try to kill me :lol:

So I think we should have a person or two go over them since he admits for example he didn't take the OS grosses of previous films into account for sequels.

So we have an overwhelming vote in favor of using CJohn's numbers as a foundation. That's been decided.

 

We also have a 4-2 vote in favor of asking a couple people to make sure his numbers are legit and make any necessary adjustments. I'd like a couple more votes for that question before saying one option or the other has won.

Numbers, I don't think you're going to get that a couple more votes as you wanted. I think you should start picking, or people should start volunteer to do them before Year 7 starts.

How about we appoint Numbers as the one and only "adjuster," since he's been with the game for quite a while.

 

Since I will be busy working on the Year 7 Festival I don't have time. My preference is for people not working on the festival to volunteer. We should have 2 people and those people should stay in contact with one another and approve changes made by one another.

Spaghetti maybe, and someone else I can't remember.
