Greetings everyone. This is our official feedback thread. We want to be your primary board of posting, but we know, we can only do that when we listen to our members. So, with that in mind, if you have any helpful ideas, wants, or other aspects, feel free to post them here.

We take all of our members seriously and respect their individuality. If you have a great thread, it may become a sticky or it's own category. That being said, if you don't share that idea, no one will know that great potential you may have to offer here.

Let us know and we will see what we can do.

Happy posting and have fun!

Phineas J. Whoopee

Ok, so there is one thing I might like to see here, simply because it became such a pain in the ass, I got accustomed to it after a while.

Namely- THE BANANA SMILEY~!


I know some not-to-be-named regular members here could give two shites about him, but I for one, wouldn't mind seeing the banana smiley aboard here. As long as SVB doesn't go beserko with it.

Lets get some feedback on this very important issue here people!!! :D

Yet more support for the beloved bananas.

I wonder why Cyril and SVB have not commented yet.

Even Cyril himself eventually grew fond of the little bastards! Image


BTW I swiped this from somewhere else, definitely too much trouble to do on a regular basis.

I am hereby putting in a request for yet another addition to our "smileys".


This is one that many of us seemed to get a kick out of, and was popular. definitely one of my favorites, and everybody seemed to use it at one time or another. I think it would be a good addition to our list of smileys we already have in place.

Here he is.........

Greetings Mr. Z,

A chatroom has been discussed. I was going to create a PtE Browser Bar that could be added to your IE & FireFox browsers that would allow a virtual Private Chatroom or IM for all members. However, it is still under developement and concideration. In the meantime, I will start a poll regarding this idea and see how the members feel.

Happy Posting & Have Fun,

Phineas J. Whoopee

The following is an observation made by Woodrow in the Jonny Quest thread. This is probably the best place for the response to his comments.

Woodrow Mulligan wrote:
Well, I will tell you, unless one knows the address it is hard as hell to find! I was in St. Louis the beginning of the week (I donated bone marrow, which I will go into detail in a blog post if I ever get it done....) and tried to log into PTE and could not pull it up. I tried all the cult shows to see if it would pull up that way and then PTE, etc. Nothing, so I don't know how others are able to latch on....


Well, pushing the envelope and PtE have a lot of title uses, Woodrow, so that instantaneous response is gonna be tough for a while. However, if you typed in: pushing the envelope (show)
Show = Twilight Zone, AHP, Outer Limits, Prisoner, or Jonny Quest it would have brought you here; typically in the top 3.

I also recommend all members to do this once a week and click on us to keep our placement high. Soon we will begin to appear in both the PtE listing and Show listing without having to specify both.

Have Fun & Happy Posting,

If you try out the posted method, we come up within the top 3.

Do a search for your name in Google images and see what turns up. :D Some of you may be surprised.

One show I'd love to see get its own section is "Tales of the Unexpected" since the board was basically set up as an alternative to ""That Other Joint"" and has expanded. TotU runs along similar lines to TZ in that it is a show which runs for 30 minutes showing different styles and types of story with a twist at the end.

If you need someone to do the donkey work, you know where I am :)

Thriller, OSB, AHH, MI have been considered but probably won't be actively pursued until after the phpbb3.0 conversion - which is supposed to happen by the end of this summer. However, The Invaders does have its own thread in General TV already and I would suspect with more members growing interest in it, would be on the short list for inclusion.

Some TotU are made in the US, the rest are British. I can recommend some great episodes if we want to do a sample to 'test the waters'. They're all available on DVD in the UK, I have them all and am happy to put together the forums as we've previously done. :)

I must admit, I've not heard of the show but a quick google and what I read makes it sound quite good. Very much my kind of show.

Just a bump here, for a few reasons.

We are now currently in our new and hopefully final home.

I noticed earlier that we don't seem to have an arcade section anymore. Perhaps we lost it when we moved here, not sure.
Occaisionally I used to go in there and tinker a bit, and some of the other members did as well.
We *MAY* still have it, but after trying a couple of different skins, I couldn't see it anywhere.
If you still want to see an arcade section, please chime in here.


Something else......
At some point we had 2 sets of avatars. After searching , I found them in another thread, but as I had noted before, one set is long gone.
Maybe in the coming weeks, we can produce a new set of avatars (along with the current ones we still have) to use in our new home.


If anything special is wanted or desired, let someone know, and we will see what we can come up with.
Remember, this is most likely going to be our permanent residence, so input is much appreciated at this stage.


TZ DZ Fan

This may have been addressed already, but just in case:

I'm not able to get into many of the Members Only Movies forums :cry: (like the Horror films forum). I get a General Error message and it has something to do with the style (skins?); I know there were special different styles/skins used for many of these in the old version board and there's apparently an incompatibility with the new board.

Thanks for the heads up, Kaptain. There were quite a few skins/styles not transfered: PtE Classic Silver & Black Blood - being the 2 that effected these forums.

Issues should be resolved for both Movies & TV

Just a quick note, since our transfer to our own domain and upgrade to phpbb 3.0.8 - we've had some minor snags that are being rectified as discovered. Found thus far:

1) Access to Forums due to Styles Specific not available = Resolved.
2) Topics Don't Exist: caused by a backup glitch when users were still posting. Disabled auto backup and resynced board. Some members lost a few posts during Feb 19/20 but it has been resolved.
3) Anti Double Post adding to original but not bumping topic = Resolved.
4) Image too large to link/attach = Resolved. Image Resizer now in place to handle large images.
5) Old hyperlinx not working = In Process. Those links back to our old domain do not auto redirect and need to be manually edited. Give us time there are quite a few.

If you come across any other issues, let us know.
