Well, there may be nothing that can be done. I don't know of any magazine articles or books about the history of the site.

Maybe Geoff should write a book.

The forum is slow enough as it is, I don't think we want to advertise it to more people.

The site was started by Geoffrey Kleinman [1] with the purpose of creating an online resource to help people decide what to watch on DVD.
Really? And I am truly asking because I wasn't here at the very start. I thought it would be because people already decided what to watch and wanted to discuss those things somewhere.

And the article clearly fails because it clearly omits the following:
Twikoff
Pee In Her Butt
Moran
Otter Farm
No mention of the sub-forums, or the spin off Adult Talk


And I am sure there are other important things I am trying to think of but am failing to do so at this late hour.

DVD Talk is also a "Green Business". The site and company is run in the most environmentally friendly and sustainable way possible. This is one of the reasons they don't have a printed companion magazine. DVD Talk not only recycles just about everything they dispose of but re-use whenever possible.

the site began as a bargains site... the main page was bargain news and listings and the only forum was what we now call the dvd bargains forum

What about danol? You could have a whole Wikipedia page dedicated to him. I need to go through the archives sometime and check out some of his threads.

Wikipedia is kind of strange. They have this picture of a dog platter but then they might delete Dvdtalk?

I think Roger Ebert has referenced the site a few times.

Ahh, Danol. Did he not pop up with different names, and also on other forums??

Back to dumpster diving while I await a reply.
