make sure you read all the updates down below
Here you will find the updated rules and a list of popular threads: Popular threads:
[COLOR=Red]Rules[/COLOR]: I'd like to keep this simple; you are probably familiar with these rules but please read them anyway to make this forum more fun for everyone. Please take a look at the general forum guidlines.
Flaming - Don't flame. It's as simple as that. If you flame, your posts will be deleted. If the thread exceeds with multiple flames, it will be closed or deleted. Those who continue to so, will be banned.
Piracy - Don't post links to sites with illegal content (warez) or request such links.
You're not a moderator - Absolutely no backseat-moderation. Leave moderating to moderators. If you must you can, in addition to a normal reply to a thread, inform a new member about a rule which he disregarded or encourage him to read this sticky, if you manage to do this in a polite way.
Be constructive - Try to put a bit effort into your posts and threads (don't use one-word-posts, copy-paste information from another website without giving sources or your own opinion.
Spoiled! - Use spoiler-tags when necessary, people don't like to be spoiled don't they?
[/html][COLOR=Red]update:[/COLOR] -use the edit-button! If you want to answer to two members use the edit-button to copy the second answer into your post. If you double-posted a thread or post you can delete it using the edit-button. If you miss the 30 minutes timeframe to do so you can always PM a moderator and he will gladly help you.
[COLOR=Red]update 2:[/COLOR] Do not abuse threads solely for the purpose of increasing your postcount! Some threads, which should perhaps be moved to other forums because of their nature, stay here to offer you some fun. Do not abuse this or we will delete a number of your messages to decrease your post-count. Try not to post more than once an hour, immediately after one of your other posts or alternating with another user in threads like "what are you currently listening to" and try to keep the relation between your overal postcount and the number of posts in such threads low.
If you have suggestions, questions, don't like the way things are handled, want threads included to this master-sticky or feel lonely and misunderstood just PM me or my fellow entertainment-moderators.
A new sense of nuisance.

Here below are some links provided for those who like to be updated with further upcoming films or trailers that have not yet been shown in the theaters.
The best one so far is: http://www.apple.com/trailers/
Those who want infomation or reviews on any (almost any) film you want should go and join www.IMDb.com It is a fantastic site for those movie enthusiasts.
Please do not be afraid to PM me for mistakes, or links that I have missed.
Thanks and have fun.

[COLOR=Red]Thread Revival Guidelines.
-Do not revive threads over
2 years old, even if your intended post is on topic. It's better to re-create a thread of the same topic than to revive an ancient one. It tends to annoy people when you revive old threads.
Again, these are new rules for the Entertainment forum that will be revised by me and the other mods (or supermods or admins - feel free to add to this post). The thread revival guidelines should be finalized within a short amount of time.
Sincerely, Killer_Kyle GF Forum Staff.
EDIT: The thread cut-off date is now [SIZE="4"]6 months[/SIZE]. Any thread that is revived that is more than 6 months old will be closed. Repeated violations will result in action.
There are special cases where a thread older than 6 months can be revived. Possible threads may include the stickied threads above.
