What are some of the major non-region 1 DVD sites out there? The forums at http://www.thedvdforums.com/cgi-bin/ubbcgi/Ultimate.cgi seem to be pretty good for R2. Are there R3 and R4 equivalents?

Speaking of the plaza, does anyone else find it as slow as I do?

New, shiny, friendly and smart...

There's a brand new forum based in the UK dedicated to DVD primarily although there are other forum areas much like here.

The address is...

I recommend visiting and joining this community because they are growing quickly from a fresh start just one month ago and there are knowledgable people visiting there.

Best wishes,

Mark.

The site over there was awfully slow for about a week, but seems to be better now.

Should be pretty good when the new server is online soon.

Hi,
Try out http://www.thedvdforums.com for discussion/information on most things dvd.

Also try http://www.dvdforumz.com This just a new site but i'm sure they would appreciate people with a knowledge of DVD's checking them out. I have spoken to a few of the guys who run this site and they are very keen about all things DVD.

Hope this is of some interest.

Apparently they've gone to a registration only site to even view the bulletin board. And they don't accept hotmail as an email address. Guess I'll be looking around for a better region 2 forum now.

For Asian DVD releases, it's asiandvdguide.com.

It also has an Asian DVD forum/community. Check it out.

PINOY: no doubt your posts raising old threads were made with good intentions and not simply to advertise the site in your sig. However, I think the various threadstarters will have seen their questions answered a bazillion times inthe year or so since they asked them so I am locking up now. [Benedict]
[OFF TOPIC]

Benedict, the very reason I posted my message in this thread is the fact that it is still allowed and unlocked. There is nothing wrong in posting in a thread that's been stagnant for a while, right?

It may not by of any help to the one who started the thread but it might be of help to other members who might have stumble into this thread now or in the future.

I would have appreciated your little "reminder" had you posted it on private. Posting it here on the board just ask for another reaction in public. Hope you realize that. Oh by the way, thanks for the welcome!

[still off-topic]

PIN0Y, new members are always welcome; especially where they join in and contribute in a productive manner. I hope that, subject to acceptance of the forum rules and the final paragraph at the end of this post, you enjoy a long and useful membership of this community.

At the top of page one of this forum there are several "sticky" threads. These are maintained generously by other members to assist new and old members alike. You may be interested to know that info about asiandvdguide and its forums is present in AutumnNights essential thread.

I would particularly advise new readers of this forum to read said "sticky" threads and also the forum rules and this thread started in Feedback by the site founder and owner.

To look more closely and respond to the issues you raised....

Your email address is not shown in your profile: in order to obtain it I would have needed to bother an administrator over what - at the time - seemed to be a relatively minor matter. At the same time I would be drawing (unnecessary?) attention in admin circles to your posts.

My email address, in contrast, is given at various places on the site: you were quite at liberty to email me with your concerns although on this occasion it appears that you have opted publicly to escalate the matter....

As suggested above, repeating information already included in comprehensive and well-maintained "sticky" threads is pointless and, I must say, not in the least excused by the arguments you have recently presented: I pointed this out in the earlier post of yours to deter both yourself and others from continuing to think that it was "OK". That is one of the things that I do here as a moderator. I also went ahead and locked several of those older threads and in some cases deleted posts.

Had your "bumping" posts comprised useful, original and/or substantial information then I doubt that there would have been need for any comment on my part.

To answer your question, no, for the main part, spurious thread-bumping is <i:>not condoned. To the best of my knowledge, persistent offenders have in the past suffered administrative action in the form of public or private warnings and the removal of posting privileges.

All this having been said, I do not propose to go back and lock all ancient threads to avoid the possibility of less-than-relevant bumping: it is easier to deal with this on a case by case basis and occasionally publicly to restate forum rules and guidelines.

Finally, so there is no misunderstanding, I will address the following direct question to you, PIN0Y: do you have any connection (except as a satisfied customer) with the commercial site in your sig. Please email me with a simple yes or no.

Thanks.


Benedict
