Calendar of Releases
Hey is there a way for DVDactive.com to add a release calandar to the site? Basically just a monthly view of releases that they have already confirmed.

The site Davisdvd.com used to have it before they shut down and I think it's a cool tool. I think its better to see all the dvds that come out in a monthly view rather than finding out one by one. If that makes sense.

I can link you to other sites that have this feature, but why would i do that? This is by far my favorite DVD/BD news site and i have to agree with MovieNerd777; this would be a great addition to the site. Maybe it could be added with the next site upgrade?

This one here is interesting - has EVERY DVD (Movies, Music Videos, Documentaries, TV Shows, etc) being released and re-released.

I don't mind if mine is deleted for linking to another site, but I use http://www.joblo.com/dvdclinic/release_dates.php.

Something tells me Tom or Chris wouldn't mind. It's very difficult and time consuming to maintain release calendars which is why most sites don't do them anymore.

Thank you Franchise. I've been looking for a release date page exactly like the one in Joblo. With mini cover arts, and that's not complicated like some others.

Well, why don't the guys like hire (or simply ask or bully) one of us movie nerds who are also computer geeks (not me haha) who can help create and maintain the release calendar? I'd rather get my upcoming dvd news & release calendar info on the same site.

I'm glad that no one tore into me for even suggesting this.

The site does have a sort of release calendar. There's a released soon section on the right that works from existing data, but it only shows a few imminent titles. It's one of the things that could be incorporated into the redesign, whenever that finally materialises (I won't start Tom off on that one).

Whats the "it" that you are refering to that could be incorporated into the redesign? & not to push but any idea when this redesign would take place? I don't want (or need) an exact date but maybe a ballpark figure (like Christmas, 4th of July, etc).
