Hi guys,
I'd like to know what people think about our new forum WeMovie. It's VERY new and we're still adding content, etc. but I'd like to hear opinions about how it's looking at the moment.
Thank you.

Sorry. Was having some problems over the last few months and had to postpone any work on the forum. The forum is now back and totally redone. I'd love to hear people's thoughts???

Please remember this forum is very new (Ive literally JUST opened it to the public) and there's still alot to do.

I'd particularly like to know what people think about the way I've done the Actors and Actresses forums which are ordered by last name. I'm not sure how else to lay this out and I tried different ways to show each actor's forum and this way seemed to take up the least room. Opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Thankyou.

Can you make the board viewable to guests? Can't really make an impression if there's nothing to see! :]

It is viewable to guests... I can see it when Im logged out.
The CMS was up but not viewable to guests, but the forum still was.
Ive had to disable the CMS for now anyway.
Sorry for the confusion.

That's the icon to show locked forums.

I guess it shows up when a certain usergroup doesnt have posting permissions, right?

Where do I turn off "show lock icon to guests"?

Edit: OK well the only way I figured I could turn off the lock showing for guests is to change the lock icon altogether. So I've just had to use the original image minus the lock.

Sorry, when I first visited the site, I was presented with nothing but a log-in box, which is obviously a turn off for anybody visiting, but this has changed now - I see the board.

Looks good so far, just needs all that content! :]

Hiya,
Yeh the login box was on the CMS. I need to update a modification for the CMS to work though so I'll be doing that soon and then working on the CMS.

Thanks for your comments.

I don't really know what content I can add to the forum without looking like I'm just talking to myself. Haha!

Hopefully once the CMS is done it will look more "full".

I almost completely missed the actors names after clicking on a letter, in my case, D... I expected the sub-forums would be listed in larger fonts, maybe in boxes/tables... instead it was just a small font with names next to each other... Also the ones I looked at had no posts.. Maybe combine all the actors pages into 1 for now until you have more traffic and use thread prefixes for actor names? Just a suggestion.

EDIT- I also have to say I was a little annoyed with your "Random Question" when registering... I got "Who directed Avatar?" - now granted I know it was the biggest grossing movie ever and you are a movie fan site, but I for one had no idea who directed, stared, or acted in it- just not details I ever cared to learn... and even if it was a movie that I knew who directed, like ET, I probably would spell the name wrong... It's just a big turn off if you don't know the answer and need to Google it- you really need members at the moment- would remove ANY impediments to joining until you absolutely have to.

EDIT2- Usually in forums on the lower right after all the posts in a thread is a drop down box to link you back to the forum you were just viewing. On your site the default link seems go be somewhere else? At quick glance I couldn't find a link back to the forum at all in the box it seemed. I see, what's missing is the "Go" button, it's a real annoyance to have to scroll past every letter in the alphabet, twice, to get to most forums in that box.

Hey. Thankyou for your comments.

Re. the actors/actresses forums... it took me SUCH a long time to add each forum the way that I have that I really don't want to remove all the forums again and then have to add them again at a later date. Maybe if I just changed the size of the font, because I do agree it is too small. I did originally have each forum viewable but I figured once more actors are added it's going to take people too long to scroll down the page looking for the actor they want. Does that make sense? This way it takes up less room, yknow.

OK I'll remove the random question. The only reason I had it there is cause I dont want loads of spam bots signing up, which has been a real issue with past forums Ive owned.
OK I've changed the question to 'What Is 1 + 1?' I think most people can get that right.

Regarding your 3rd point... Im sorry but I dont know what you mean. Maybe because I never use this feature so Ive never noticed it before. If something is missing I can only blame the skin, cause as far as I know I havent removed any of the default features.

Your comments have been very helpful. Thankyou.

The 3rd point- If you scroll down the window you're reading right now, a couple of inches below the "Quick Reply" box on the right it says (on vBulletin.org) Forum Jump and in the box is Community Reviews and a "Go" button... Your forum lacks the "Go" button, probably a skin issue, but it means I can't get back to the forum by simply clicking "Go" - I have to go to the drop down box and go back to the forum name for the page to actually change.

Oh yeh I see what you mean.
There is a Quick Navigation drop down box above the quick reply box on the forum.
Is this not the same as the Forum Jump?

There is but it's missing the "go" button, so to use it I have to click on it, then scroll all the way through it, then click on the forum name, and only then does it work... Usually I'd just click on "Go" because the forum I was viewing is already pre-selected.
