That sounds very good. The 5000 free films seen in 2014 made me laugh.

Btw, our phpBB installation needs updating.

Hi AYBG, I think it is looking good, clear and simple to navigate. I like the fresh new look. Like Beate says, links since seems to be out of date, but I suppose it is still work in progress? Also soonforgotten‘s site – LondonFilmFanatiq is out of date as he seems to have gone the way of his name, and his blog no longer exists ;)

Thanks and keep up the good work! o/

Thanks! Yeah, still working on some things. I've had some fun tweaking some of the wording this evening... don't want it to be too formal haha

What do you think of the top 10 idea?

Forum updated :)

I am sure there used to be a link to take you to the front page, but can no longer find it :confused: and the only way I can view the front page is to open fmuk in incognito or delete most of the address to the basic web address. Is there a better way?

I have checked it out and the front page looks better and more up to date. I cant remember the last time I looked at it as I spend all my time on the forum and your post made me have a look. Will be good for new people who are just finding the site.

I did notice whether I press the "What" or "How" buttons it takes me to the "How" page, should it? Also under "How" Sky rewards are mentioned, but not the Sun, Sky rarely do films nowadays so maybe it should be amended to make it current.

Top 10 sounds like a good idea and an easier way to go with the missing years. Maybe a thread or vote on the forum for films in the relvant years to make lists might be the way to go.

Thanks for all your hard work o/

The top 10 idea is good. I agree with akh43, the link from the forum to click to go back to the front page is missing in the forum. I had to type the webpage address in the browser to get to it.

It feels very snappy and up to date, so not formal at all. It's chatty and friendly.

o/ like very much. Thanks again.

The link to the front-page was a feature of an integration plugin I had to delete a while ago :(
But I'm okay with that, the point of the front page is to point to the forum, rather that the other way around. It's the page people will arrive at from google searches and the like.

The links are updated and I've made the How section a part of the same page. I'm loathe to even refer to that tabloid's name.

I've had a little play and top ten thing wouldn't play nice with the theme (too much text), but what do you guys think of this?

;)

LOL.
We don't have to name all the free film sources, they change, and are listed on the forum anyway.
