Thank you for your time.


> EPICALLY unimpressed.


Could you please tell me more ? How long a try did you give it ? Are
you a movie buff ? Why you were so disappointed ? What you would have
liked ? Can you make suggestions ? If you were simply put off by the
current lack of pictures (program can look a little dry like that), I
can tell you that pictures will be added soon.

Best regards,
Hector.

Well, I found the database lacking in titles, for one thing. Also, it
was difficult sorting through the different versions of titles. And,
yeah, pictures might have helped.

Thank you for the feedback !


> I found the database lacking in titles.


Right now, I'm doing big changes to the database, and when I'm
finished, I'll allow users to contribute new movies.


> yeah, pictures might have helped.


I posted here because I consider the program is already pretty useful
in its current state (I've had many good feedbacks). But it surely
won't hurt to add some eye candies.


> it was difficult sorting through the different versions of titles.


I'm sorry, I don't understand this one. Do you mean the different
videos available for a movie ? Why is it difficult to sort through ?
First are listed the normal versions. Then the special editions
(director's cut, etc...). And finally the packs that include the
movie. How can I improve that ?

Please, I suggest that we all remain polite...

"EPICALLY unimpressed", I admit that I was upset by this unfairly
severe judgment.

Words can kill :(

Lovely as the quotes may be, perhaps you could rotate them rather
than post all of them every time?

BTW, Usenet standard is four lines of signature.

is a good reference. (See question and answer 45.)
