MeFi Horror Club Posting Norms Question

A few times in the last couple of weeks I've put a movie up on FanFare that might also make a good selection for the MeFi Horror club, but I didn't make it a club selection because the process for making a club selection was pretty involved. For future reference if I or anyone else just feels like going, "Hey, here's a movie that would be cool for FanFare but it's also a horror movie, I'm just going to announce it as a MeFi Horror Club selection," do people think this is okay? Or is it preferable to keep MeFi Horror Club selections only to things that follow the announcement and posting protocol? Anyone?
