DVDSpot question
The site is going down.  Any good place to log my collections?

Personally I use DVD movie collector from Collectorz.com, but it's not free and not really online.

FFS, I only recently bloody started using it. Weren't they bought out a while ago? I know one of the admins over there from a while back and he said that they weren't happy with the way the site owners handled things. They even went on strike a while back.

I found this news today from my facebook....

On Wednesday October 15th DVDSpot will be closed permanently. This decision was made to allow us to focus on other great web properties. We sincerely appreciate everyone's contribution to the DVDSpot community and hope you enjoyed the free services it provided. We understand many people will not want to lose their personal collection data, so we remind you that you can export that data to file by going to Membership Tools while logged in and clicking the Export to File button. This will create a file with all movies in your Owned and Watched lists.

For those DVDspot loyal users (like myself), you can re-create your list on dvdtown.com or listal.com. Neither of them are as comprehensive as DVDspot was with the different editions and packaging.

This is a sad day for us collectors - hope recreating your list won't take forever and a day!!! Feel free to share the new url for your list on this group page!

Good thing I don't use it.

I use www.DVDaf.com, it's a great DVD collector's site.

Here's mine for an example:

That info has been on the page for a while Mark. DVDAF sucks compared to DVDSpot. Looks horrible and much harder to contribute to. Nowhere near as customisable either. DVDProfiler is just as bad, especially now it's all commercial.
