    With every coming new year comes a new set of resolutions. Dave announced on the main page our intent to make some big changes to the forum this year to make it more interactive and enjoyable. So out of all the proposed ideas, which one strikes you as the best one?
     
  2. Perhaps a venue where fans could discuss the theatrical experience of seeing a horror film vs. it's DVD release, not only for the extras on the latter but for the difference in impact of theatrical and home viewings.

    What drew me to HorrorDVDs initially were the excellent reviews. Keep `em coming and bring back the old reviews as well.

    I'd like to see a couple of those. More reviewers would be great (that way you'd get more reviews, and hopefully they'd have a different take). Also, some horror articles. I'd also like to see the same film reviewed by more than one person - to get a different view.

    Horror articles should include in-depth information and views of films, outside of the review format.

    I voted for more reviews, but what I meant was more timely reviews.

    Here is how I'd rank these from best to worst:

    1. Music forum - I voted for this. A reviews, articles and forum section should be made also.
    2. More reviews - The site should always have new reviews for the most current releases.
    3. More contests - They're fun and help promote the site. Prizes should be more varied than just DVDs and the monetary values shouldn't be extremely high as so that more contests can be had.
    4. Horror articles - Additional news and personal perspectives on this subject is always a welcome addition to this site and a music articles section shouldn't be neglected.
    5. New reviewers - New blood and new opinions are welcome because reading one person's thoughts on a movie is just one look at what could be a better or worse media release.
    6. HorrorDVDs.com clothing - Something new to the site, a store of sorts could help bring in some money to the site where clothing and other collectibles could be offered for purchasing.
    7. Website/Email hosting - A nice touch for upstarts and small busineses.
    8. Petition section - Could be a nice feature but ultimately not a real worth while one.
    9. Automated trading system - To some this is a great feature but to me not as appealing. This will rank higher for others than for me.
    10. Subscriber benefits - This is the worst idea in my opinion. If the demand for this is high then yes it should be included but I don't like this idea.

    Unlisted: An official HorrorDVDs web radio station would also be a nice touch where members can listen to the station as they read the reviews and forum posts. Music could include original soundtrack scores, movie bits, one liners, and band songs that were incorporated in movies. A direct link should be added to the top bar for this where the Aracde link is located.

    I'd rate this at 6th, between New reviewers and HorrorDVDs clothing.

    More reviews is what I picked. Most of the other stuff just seemed like needless fluff to me.

    I would also like to add that I would like to have the java chat working again. Some members would like to take part in chat but cannot because of this. They don't want to use mirc either so the java chat is easiest.

    I'd hope that any new reviews don't just concentrate on new releases. There are so many DVD's that are out there already that are worthy. One of the problems with the reviews, to me, is that they are of new things coming out - but I can get reviews of them in a 100 different places.

    Worst on that list, to me, was a music forum. I also skip those pages in Rue Morgue magazine :)

    Do you skip the game news bits in Rue Morgue too Dwatts? Seems very odd that a gaming feature would make it on a horror site like this BEFORE a music feature....just saying. It's looooong overdue.

    I agree with dwatt's first post. I voted for more reviewers but what i'd really like to see is more reviews and new reviewers to give a different perspective..

    two of the things that drew me to this website intiailly were the great and extensive list of reviews (with a great layout) and the upcoming dvd list (although i can understand that keeping this updated is a *LOT* of work).. i also think that the reviewer's top 20 picks is also a good idea to draw in new people. People love being told what to watch/given ideas :)
