Well the coding marathon is now complete... or mostly completely anyways.

Take a look around, write some reviews, post some messages. If you run into any trouble or notice anything weird, just give me a shout. Cool

Nice to see the site back up (new and improved as well), now then, what to do first, add some ratings to some items I feel not to to doing a full review of as yet. Well I suppose I should really get to adding some more profiles really.

Anyways hi all, hope you like the new site, etc.

Some things that came up while adding profile Bebe's Kids.

Got ‘page not found’ when I clicked on next to go to ‘alternative title’ option.

In voice actor section - Didn’t ask me if Tone Loc was the same Tone Loc who was already in the database, so we have a duplicate entry for him now. Only happened in the voice actor section, crew section worked perfectly.

Also there’s currently no drop menu - on our side - for the ‘Buy Option’ and ‘Merchant’ in the add merchandise section.

Well thankfully most of these issues I could've predicted...

The admin for Merchandise, See Also and Alt. Titles isn't finished yet which is why you are getting a page not found. I'll get these done as quick as I can. I'm doing some cleaning up in Merchandise which is why it's taking longer than I planned.

"Tone Loc" is actually entered as a last name only type deal (like "Sting") which is why the search didn't trigger. I've made the fix now.

Also, just so you know, if you make a mistake adding someone you didn't mean to, you can delete them and the system will remove the extra person record as well if they aren't attached to any other animation profile. This way you don't need me to delete those hanger-on "orphan" records anymore.

Toy Story 3

Toy Story 3 teaser trailer is out.

I don't want to knock the new Keyframe features article off the homepage just yet, but if you haven't seen it yet, here's the teaser trailer. I assume that this was tacked on to the release of "Up".


Btw, has anyone here gotten a chance to see "Up" yet?

Made for TV movies/specials

While I may be sounding like a broken record at these times, I thought this was still worth my time arguing over the moving of these four profiles to the animated special section, since they were all debuted on the small screen.

the hobbit
the flight of dragons
the return of the king
the wind in the willows

To further this argument, reading servewithchips review of the first three betrays the fact that they are thought of as specials rather than features by some people. If the length of these animated cartoons is a problem, it’s one solved by the fact that some of the entries in Animated Specials, when it was Holiday Specials, were of feature length anyways, in some cases with two classifications to their name.

Yeah, I saw that Toy Story 3 teaser trailer while the site was down, it's much the same sort of thing as the teaser for Toy Story 2 was way back when.

Okay, there seems to be a bug in the forum that causes it to have serious issues when the post is copied from Word. I'll install the "Word scrubber" add-on when I get home later, but in the meantime DO NOT copy your posts from MS Word into the forum.

Is bad, bad, bad... Tongue out

Well, since we now have an Animated Specials area--which we didn't up until yesterday--I think it's fair to move them on over.

Would it make sense to just limit Feature Films to full-length features that had their premiere in the theatres?

I think that would be a fair definition of feature films, yes.


Yeah, I noticed the problems the wall was having with Word document origin text.

I never even realized Flight of Dragons was never a theatrical release.

Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue!

I think I now understand why starlac has been so keen to be able to add animated specials into the site. He's had Cartoon All-Stars in his back pocket all this time and has just been itching to find a place to put it!

I mean, wow... so delightfully cheesy in that sort of heavy handed moralistic way that was so prevalent back then--like the whole moral of the story things they used to include at the end of every He-Man episode.

I was going to say 80s cheesy, but it looks like it just squeaked into the 90s. I have vague recollections of being bombarded with such animated specials growing up, but I can't think of them right now... I'm sure as they make their way on to the site I'll be having a lot more "aha!!" type moments.

I didn't know that special until I saw the review of Nostalgia Critic... it's one of those things that you have to see to believe it. I still cringe when I hear Simon saying "marijuana"... that's just AWESOMELY retarded.

 

P.D: The new design is really nice Athena!! Everything feels more simple and easy to use.

WELCOME BACK!

Ah, wow! The revamped site looks so neat and clean! I'm starting to take a liking to it!

Haven't seen much movies right now, but with summer starting up, I'll probably make a review comeback, okay? *I have a few films/series that I'm working on writing up*

Is this the finished version? You did mention that there would be several upgrades, though I could be wrong.
