Does the LAMB twitter account have any guidelines?

Yes, the basis for the LAMB twitter is to RT its members tweets.

Who is the LAMB of the Month?

Once a month Joel chooses to highlight a LAMB member that has done something important or helpful for the LAMB community. It can be everything from contributing to the LAMB with a certain skill or just being an avid commenter on different member blogs.

If you want to highlight someone you think should be recognized feel free to submit that person through e-mail on largeassmovieblogs(at)gmail.com write LOTM Candidate in the subject line.

Can I contribute to the LAMB?

Yes, we are always on the look-out for new contributors and if you have an idea for a feature that could be hosted on the LAMB send an e-mail pitch to largeassmovieblogs(at)gmail.com and it might be implemented. However, if you come up with a feature that we include on the LAMB rooster we share immaterial copyright with you and might continue the feature without your participation.
