This will be extended and is not a "must", this is merely a collection of ideas on how to create and structure articles and information in the database
1) Plot summaries
Every movie article should have a little plot summary / synopsis of about 100 words, introducing the main plot idea, the main characters and what the movie is all about without going into much detail or giving away interesting clues. It is best to play around with sentence structures to fit as much information as possible into a very small paragraph.
For DVD covers, I think a maximum width of 120 pixels maximum. Movie posters for illustration can be let's say 200 pixels or so wide. It would be good not to overload article pages with lots of images, we plan to create picture sub-pages for all movies in the future. Please check if files are available before uploading. You can request deletion of images if better quality or different sizes are available to you.
Every article has a little links heading, where you usually find links to the IMDB or external reviews. Please don't link to external pages that are commercial or of questionable content (for example bootleg sites). It is always a good idea to link to a fitting forum topic of this forum, if it is related, so that someone who visits the Blindman page on the front page can quickly jump to our Blindman discussion topic here. The goal is to have the Forum and main site quite closely connected.
To maintain a high standard, please only post texts that are of sufficient quality in terms of language, grammar, punctuation, whitespace and vocabulary. Please only post texts without any mistakes in them.
