Are we going to be bringing back the reviews from the old boards over here?

If anyone wants to copy and paste into the new review section (when it's created) from their old reviews, I guess that's fine but I'd more or less just re-visit old reviews of mine to remind me of my thought process when I was watching the film I was reviewing because tastes change over time.


Mod me!

You wait! I first have to do some testing for the mod profiles to make sure the permissions are right before I hand them out.

are you able to make it that you can also search by reviewer? as different people have different tastes. so that if people find a reviewer they like or feel they share tastes then they can search them and not others.

though i guess you could just tag your own name and then have something like giddins top 10 slasher remakes. i think i just answered my own question. lol

I don't think that would be a problem.

Eh, originally it's like a title for a new user who is under a certain amount of posts, like "N00b". I don't think I care for it and I'll probably remove it soon.

I'll try to cover as much as I can in this response:

The Fights
While I think there is no doubt this section will return, it's low priority. It's a good tool to attract people to the site, but it will only occupy someone for 10 minutes here and there. If you don't have the time-consuming content like reviews, articles etc to occupy their time between fights, there's less chance they'll stick around.


Movie Reviews
One of my missions with this site is to keep a unique perspective on generic features. Movie reviews are essential to pretty much any movie-themed website but almost every site seems to display them in a similar fashion to each other. My idea, and this was mostly the idea back in 2011 when I was developing a new site just before my host changed the PHP software and screwed my coding, was to put a huge emphasis on rankings. When a staff reviewer is adding their review, they can add tags (e.g. sequel, remake, slasher etc) so readers can add parameters to show a list of the top 10 rated 'slasher' movies, or 'remakes' or even 'slasher remakes' if you use both, lol.

The ratings would be based on averages supplied by each individual staff member which has rated the film. I should also be able to do this combined and separately for members also. Reviews will have the option of adding either or both a small and large review. Small review will just be a couple of sentences, basically a summary and the large reviews are obviously those ones that span over a bunch of paragraphs. There's a lot more to it but that's a taste of it.


Chat Room
I am leaning towards using a chatbox but it's something I need to think more about as I don't want its presence to be a detriment toward forum posting activity. The reason why I preferred a chat room instead of chatbox is that there was a distinction between it and the forum. A chatbox, whilst being a chatting tool, still works a lot like a forum. You can say something and 5hrs later someone drops in and can respond to it... which almost sounds the same as posting a message on a forum. Eventually, you start getting people chatting about movies in it rather than in the desired forum for movie discussion.


Forum
This forum is similar but not identical to the one you previously would have been on. A lot of the same colours and layouts, only a few tables being displayed differently and such. As previously stated in another thread, more boards will follow once activity increases.

also why does everything center by defualt? i dont like it.

I'm pretty sure it only does this in Internet Explorer at the moment, seems to not be centered in Firefox, Chrome or Safari. I'll probably have it fixed for IE later tonight but anyone using that browser deserves to be shot.


Hey!  I didn't get an email Bitch!  And where's all the forums at!

I got an email to one of my test address, so it should have worked fine. Maybe a spam filter rejected your email or something like that. I don't see the point in setting up all the boards right away since we're only just starting over again. More boards will come as we grow. However, I always thought that we had too many boards on the last forum.

With a dry, cool wit like that, you could be an action hero.

Giddins turned gay and got married.

DeraiLer (aka "Hey, you in the bushes") is serving a jail sentence of two years for perverted reasons.

I really enjoyed Insidious. Sure, a lot of it is jump scares but as long as they work (they don't have to make you physically jump, just get some type of physical or mental reaction) it makes for one frightful film. I really enjoyed the dark, eerie imagery and the unique musical score. I think it's the first flick since IT that has actually given me goosebumps when I watched it.

I enjoy most of James Wan's flicks (e.g. Death Sentence, Insidious, Saw, Dead Silence etc).

I too, also mildly enjoyed I Saw the Devil, Pirahna and Devil. I did see Rare Exports but must have been tired because I fell asleep through most of it. There's gotta be more but I just can't think right now.

Hi mate, welcome. I do recall 'mrthompson88' from somewhere... probably an email address. Good to see you on here, you're the first person to sign up since I sent out the notification within the last half hour.

I have started the process of getting the website back on its feet. Here's a new forum to get us started. I'll still be working on changing the design and there will be some cosmetic hiccups somewhere, so if you find any let me know.

How have you guys been? I'd like to say I've missed most of you, but don't wanna sound like a homo.... but if you wanna take that in the homo way, then that's fine too.
