I wasn’t sure whether to put this here or in General Discussion, since it is about Post and Review Films, but I have no film to post and review. Anyway, my question is:
Can a film that has been posted here get into the directory? Or, if it’s in the directory, can it get onto here?

When jason was in charge, just because a film was posted here, doesnt mean it will be in the directory. You had to e-mail him a LINK to the film to a special addy he had set up. I dont know Revmen has any plans to change this or not.June 12, 2003 at 2:10 am #4979
That’ll be cool, i supposeJune 12, 2003 at 6:32 am #5002
I have my reservations about the films appearing in the directory automatically. My experience (based on coolbrickmovies.com) is, that people are not able to link to screenshots properly, and will submit bogus material. My advice would be to have a moderation system like BrickShelf’s.

I couldn’t agree with this more.
Let the film-maker do it themselves, but make that it MUST be moderated before it goes to ‘air’ as it were.
Otherwise I guarantee you’ll have literally hundreds of:

OK, this shouldn’t be too difficult to do. I’ll make it so that newly submitted films are only visible by the panel, and that it needs to have at least one review submitted and be OK’d before it’s made public.
Since the reviews are kept in a child table to the main film table, multiple reviewers writing reviews simultaneously won’t be a problem. But you’re right, there might be a problem if they go to change the information provided by the submitter. I’m sure there’s some way to solve it, it’s not like it’s a unique problem in the database world.June 12, 2003 at 7:01 pm #5063
Another thing that could be improved on in the Film Directory is the categories. It would be easier for people looking for films if there were sub-categories (StarWars,Sci-Fi,Fantasy,etc.) -Strider
But I do agree that movies should be moderated before being put on the site. -StriderJune 12, 2003 at 9:48 pm #5074
Actually, there are categories, too. Jason and his crew built those in, and I’ll just reuse them. The categories are:
and I added Documentary, though I might change that to Educational.June 12, 2003 at 10:11 pm #5080

Yes, change it to educational. Great Microbiologists is the only one I can think of… 😛June 13, 2003 at 5:29 am #5124
A film can have multiple categories, right? 90% of brickfilms are comedies, but they also fall into adventure/scifi/music categories.
And motfilms – Animation Class 1 & 2 and Ned Kelly would probably also qualify as documentary/educational.
