As you can see, a new weblog has replaced Thorough Movie Reviews, just shy of TMR's fifth birthday. I consider the weblog to be a simple extension of TMR: I can still write reviews, but this allows me to post all kinds of other movie-related junk. Believe me, I've been holding back around here. :-) Leave any comments you wish beneath the first post.

In case it causes concern for any regular users, I do not regard TMW to be more important than TC. In the past, I have ordered the parts of the site according to aesthetics, but today I decided to sort them chronologically: GOO started in 1998, TMR/TMW in 1999, TC in 2001, TWC in 2002, and FIN in 2003. That's fair.

I still plan to run the "green" game on here. Unfortunately, I can only seem to work on it for about two hours a week. At that rate, it will be finished around late summer. :-\  I will try to pick up the pace, but in the meantime I intend to fill that green space on the site menu with something else. Any suggestions?

Bring back the caption thingy! I liked doing that. =)

Scott Hardie | March 4, 2004
I like that too. It lasted a few months on TC3 before it fizzled out, and that's about how long I need it here. :-) Captions it is.

Scott Hardie | March 8, 2004
I still like your idea, Anna. But I'm reminded of last summer, when I programmed the photo-caption section for TC3, and participation dwindled over several weeks until a week went by with no captions submitted at all. We have more users now and I don't know if that would happen again, but instead I have decided to show some unpaid advertisements in that space. If you would like an ad for your own web site to be put into the (random) rotation, send me the URL and a 280x150 image.

Cool. I'll whip up something.

How big of a file size can we submit? You know, like a cool animated gif image to a certain site, or sites I can think of.

Scott Hardie | March 8, 2004
I have no problem with a big file size, as long as it is kept to the stated dimensions.

Not a bad idea... I'll look into that this afternoon.

Anna Gregoline | March 19, 2004
I feel bad because I don't use the "recent" feature. I just know that I wouldn't keep up with it. I like seeing other people's though.

Scott Hardie | March 29, 2004
All done, Jackie.

You are welcome. :-) I wish more people used it, but it's done pretty well for itself so far. I need to fix it so that it permits apostrophes and quotation marks... That's on my eternal list of things that need to be fixed around here.

This got mentioned in an entry from a few hours ago, but I'm giving it an entry all its own: In your opinion, does "gamer" mean a person who plays video games (XBox, PS2, Gamecube), a person who plays computer games, or a person who plays pen-and-pencil role-playing games? Go »

Members Only
