Hi Everybody,
David Bowie here, 
I'm a part-time web-designer working on Movies.ie 

Tonight we are adding in spicy new cinema times and a new file structure to movies.ie

Instead of movies having ugly names like 

http://www.movies.ie/html/movie.aspx?movieid=1287

They will now read

http://www.movies.ie/movies/terminator

This should go smoothly, but if it explodes or if you notice any errors please post them here and let us know.

Thanks
David B

Why do an update like this? Seriously. Put a decent forum on this site before anything else. The pages can have neat names all they want but the forum is still horrible. Nice to see something being done but I don't think it's the RIGHT thing. Feel like you're focusing on the wrong parts of the site.

Also, if you want to fix the bug where by if you create a topic without a title the thread still gets created? :P

Came across as belligerant rather than nicely toned criticism. If it were truly constructive you would've had some suggestions beyond "your forums suck". You do make some valid points but if you put them across more pleasantly eg; "It would be nicer if you put the newer posting up at the front and older ones at the back" That's a constructive criticism. All you said was how wrong they were.

Ok for the sake of the people on here who seemingly like to piss and moan about everything I say... 

 

Movies.ie, I feel your efforts would be better used if they were focused on improving the forums on this site rather than on making nice URLs or improving the Cinema listings, which in my opinion at least, are a bit of a waste as I only ever trust the actual cinema's site. The forums layout is, at best messy and add on top of that, it can be difficult to navigate and the system for posting doesn't work very well (i.e Numbered lists and Bullet points) I feel the focus should be on improving the forums which make this site the community it is.

On top of that, in posting that message

1) I can't edit it, which is leading to this follow up post

and

2) The site gave me an error the first time I tried posting it and I was lucky I didn't lose the text of my post.

 

I feel errors like this are what should be the focus of your efforts rather than tidying up the URLs or Cinema Listings

Nothing against you man. If you put your suggestion like the one below (taking out the reference about pissing and moaning) no-one would've actually pulled you up on anything you said and would have applauded your effort to improve things. Civility costs nothing my fellow cineaste.

It's just a shame to see a site which such good content and people on it be let down by the amount of errors this website had and the poor forums. Even today I've had 3 or 4 server errors and the site fail to load on me about 8 times.
