TV/Movie Forum?
« on: July 23, 2008, 12:20:41 AM »
I think it'd be nice to have a place dedicated to chatting about film and tv like we do for books.  No one wants to forget the bible program coming up on PBS in November!

I'm happy to create it, but the question is where to put it.

Thoughts?

Maybe make a general heading for Book, Music, Movies and TV? Then put the sections for books, music, movies, and tv under that? or should we be more subtle?

:P

And then call it "Media" or something?

I'm not sure. We had this on another forum and I think we also started with only a book forum. After a while they made a "Media" part with Books/TV/Movies/Music sub-forums. It has become entirely inactive now.

BUT, that forum is dying anyway. So don't let me scare you :P

If Ape thinks he's too busy to keep up with making all the thread titles according to one system (Name movie, Director, Year - or whatever) then I am willing to help him with that :)

I don't think I'd like a "Media" forum with subsections for "Books", "Television", and "Film".

Would it be an idea to change the name of "Books" to "Media" and then put in front of every thread name what it is? Examples:

Television: Lost (year - year)
Film: Pulp Fiction (1994)
Book: Wheel of Time (1990 - 2009)
Book: Richard Dawkins - The God Delusion (year)

etc.

I'd like to also put a vote in to make Books and TV forums inside a sort of "Media" parent forum.

I think TV & Movies can both be in the same forum, and don't need to be 2 separate ones.

I agree, but would suggest a Music one too.

Yes!

If this is a consensus I can make this change.

It sounds good to me.

Wouldn't it make more sense just to rename the Books section to Media, instead of making individual sections for each category..? That would keep the forum's main page from being too cluttered.
