If there's any money-spitting going on it'll be heading in my direction Wink

Yep, a member profile is planned. Initially I hope to just get as much of the current site into the new version plus a few extras. Bigger additions will then follow after that.

I got another suggestion. Maybe sometime in the future, there can be like a member profile that everyone can look at.
yah! can't wait for the new site! when do you think it'll be up?
Just to say that the new site is shaping up nicely. I hope that the readers will approve of the new layout (much cleaner and brighter) and the new features. There's a lot of work going on behind the scenes right now!
bump Wink
i think there also needs to be a whole forum for site ideas rather than just a thread
Put a back button down on the bottom of the page also.
Gabe, I just sent you an email.

Drop me an Email (you'll my address on my Contributor's page, under Gabriel Powers) and I'll tell you what you need to do.
Don't forget our own mailboxes like other forums have. It's great to connect to other fans and members one on one.

I have gone off the whole idea of setting deadlines. Even though my statement above is sort of meaningless, after leaving my job I actually like programming again, so I am making a lot of progress on this new version now. Can't say when it'll arrive but it's close. Happy

I think I should be paid vast sums of money. That's an idea I could get behind Wink

And touching on the eggs section again, DVDReview does have a lot, but they cater for region one only. We're a multi-region site, and have stuff from R2/3/4 etc.

Oh, I see. Well, it was just an idea, and if was possible, it'd be cool. And anyways, couldn't you get the news (or rumors, in this case) from somewhere else, then source it and link it? I mean, I see JoBlo.com do that ALL the time...they just re-write it in their own words. But whatever, it's absolutely fine with me! Happy Whatever works! :D

i think the new stie should also have a rumors section, kinda like the digital bits, except not. that would be cool!

Well, thanks to this "secret" revelation, head on over to DVDActive and u can see the new logo design and the VERY cool "coming soon" that's on it! It's an awesome new logo (although similar to DVDAnswers - it bugs me that DVD isn't capatalized, but hey, im like that! lol), and can't wait to see the site! Great job to everyone at DVDA! Happy

E-Mail me, Tom, whenever you need easter eggs. I'm not to big in DVD Player Hacks.
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.

It can happen.

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

toldchya so! lol Wink
That has a lot of DVD Easter Eggs.
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.
Chris, if you need help with easter eggs, I'm always available. I look for Easter Eggs all the time on DVD's.
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.
Mal
Geez... Wink

Am working on it (not Matt's breakfast), keep the suggestions coming.
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.

I agree with Mark. Those Easter Eggs are outdated.
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!
Tom
Still under construction Wink But yeah, it will be a complete overhaul. Looks completely different!
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?

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
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!
