Length Notes[edit]

Since the length of each Track (trak? How is "x" made singular?) depends on the length of the movie being riffed, this is a list of the length of each episode and the subsequent maximum number of quotes it is allowed. All movie times are from IMDb.com. If you would like to add another quote to an existing episode that has already reached its maximum number of quotes, you must first remove one from that episode. Additions for new episodes should follow these guidelines. The policy on article length can be found here.

Note: Since the rule for movies is 5 quotes per hour, the formula I use is (length of film / 60 minutes to an hour) * 5 quotes per hour = number of quotes, rounded to the nearest whole number. So if, for example, the formula spits out 8.4, the movie (or in this case episode, or whatever) gets 8 quotes; if the formula gives me 8.5, it gets 9 quotes.

Is the quantity of original material per hour in the commentaries really comparable to that of the movies? ~ Ningauble 17:13, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
Hmm, I actually don't know. Unlike MST3K the "episodes" don't have a consistent length and the base film won't be edited to have only the more amusingly mockable bits. I can't think what other standard to use to maintain this article, however. If anyone has a better idea it is welcome. -Sketchmoose 13:25, 31 March 2009 (UTC)
