The Official DVDAnswers Website Ideas Thread
Everyone who has ideas for what could be changed on the site should post them here.

As for me, I think that with the forums, they should have a simpler "Last Post By..." thing. i.e., the date/time thing is really hard to understand and it doesn't say whp posted last (which could be helpful), and there should be a thing where if someone's replied to your thread, you get sent an e-mail.

Post your ideas!

I think I should be the grand overlord of the site. I should give all orders, get all screeners and most importantly, any and all money's from ad revenues.

Very Happy

Then again, I'm just happy to come to a place where I can share my passion as a welcomed guest. Wink

I think the site needs a complete overhaul. These forums could use an upgrade as well. I would also like to see some more R1 reviews. Seems like they're only R2 reviews. I could help contribute some reviews. What ever happened to DVDActive or whatever it was?

Update those Easter Eggs!!

You're missing alot of good ones.

Anyone who'd like to know which new disc has the lastest eggs can find them at www.dvdtown.com and go to the easter eggs section!

I agree with Mark. Those Easter Eggs are outdated.

Well I want it to cook me a ham and cheese omelet, two strips of bacon, and two slices of toast with coffee (one cream, no sugar) for breakfast every morning. Get to work on that if you please, Mal.

To be fair, the eggs are actually updated as soon as I find them. However, unlike other sites I don't just nick them and claim them as my own. I try to find news eggs and confirm older ones, and that requires me to have the disc. I also like to post screen caps. I put up the complete list of Orgazmo eggs before any other site I visited, and there's an egg for the new edition of Gladiator (and that hasn't even been released yet).

The forums are only this way because no fucker used to post, so Mal never put much emphasis on them.

Chris, if you need help with easter eggs, I'm always available. I look for Easter Eggs all the time on DVD's.

You can also find TONS and TONS of easter eggs that aren't on DVDAnswers at "Hidden Features." It's quite a good site, and while it doesn't provide screencaps like DVDAnswers (which are helpful) it DOES provide VERY detailed explanations.

If only the site could afford to pay the contributors, I'm sure all of this stuff would get done in a week. If I didn't have to go to a real job every morning, I'd have at least two reviews up a day.Wink

They could afford to pay you. With the kinda webhits DVDanswers get, you just have to sell harder. You get more viewers then most TV shows Wink

It's getting close. At the moment it is weeks rather than months away.

I'm sure we'll announce it on the front page a week or so before launch. That'll give everyone a chance to slate the new name Wink Hehe

Page numbers on threads on the General Discussion board.

Then you don't have to click on the thread, scroll down, and then click on the page number, at least then you can quickly get to the last page.
