Something happened to the site... [Wink]

It's far from perfect, but the time has come to unleash the next phase of the Rewind with an all-new site. New look; New underlying technology. What started as a one year project ballooned into a 3 year slog [Frown]

I hope everyone likes it (or at least thinks its better than before [Wink] ).

My thanks to the beta testers who had a sneak preview and gave their feedback.

All (constructive [Wink] ) feedback & suggestions welcome [Smile]

Hi Nick,

And IF I noticed... [Smile]
At first I thought I got redirected to another website or something.

As a hopeless nostalgic, I have to admit that I somehow miss the old interface. But that's no biggie. It's more a matter of getting used to .
The movie section looks awesome and is very easy to explore. It's definitely a big improvement! I like it very much!

Congratulations and many thanks for keeping The Rewind 'alive and kicking'. [Big Grin]

Cheers,
TKO

Nick,

Incredible update! You found a way to interface The Rewind with today's technology driven world without sacrificing the 80's concepts and feel that made the original site so appealing over the years. I've already spent a couple hours navigating around on it and I've had a blast.

One thing though, I think you should highlight "Valley's 80's Messageboard"....oops I mean "Messageboard" at the top of the screen in 80's neon? ha, I just don't want anyone to miss it is all. I think I visited The Rewind several times before I ever noticed the messageboard years ago.

One thing I noticed is that when you click on messageboard on the home page it will take you directly to the 80s movie messageboard instead of the page that lists all the different messageboard forums.

Devolution here,

Just a thought, what about a "meet the specialists" section, a minor bio (pic or no pic) with our specialites, and other odds and ends. I know the profiles kind of do that, but I don't know, It could be cool.

We are DEVO

By the way, everything looks great!

i appreciate your hard work nick. i personally like the old homepage better. (no offence, just being honest.) but as you said, it's still in the works.
i didn't have a chance to look at everything just yet. i came straight to the messageboard.

as sam said, it was a bit shocking when the paged opened hehe.

Nick, you did a great job with this new site. The movie browsing is excellent in every way and much easier to navigate through. The review pages are equally improved and easy to follow. Too bad you couldn't keep the other home page. That style and the colors really made it pop. But, like you said, you need the extra space for more important stuff. Awesome job once again.

I later realized that at the bottom of the home page that there's a place to click that says forums and that takes you to the messageboard menu.

Thanks guys. It was a labor of love to be honest, but at least it's out there now and I can continue to refine it -- as well as adding the new locations that will, if I can pull it off, be very interesting, I think [Smile]

As an aside, although the basic information in the new version of the site probably appears to be similar, there have been actually massive improvements in quantity, accuracy and the ability to easily submit updates or corrections (and be informed when its processed). So, if people notice errors or mistakes, please do submit corrections or send me a message.

It's very painless, unlike the old days [Wink]

As always, if you guys have suggestions, I'm listening [Smile]

I tried to submit a link (http://www.netwalk.com/~truegger/ftrh/) in the Fast Times at Ridgemont High extra’s, but it didn’t work. Apparently because the link doesn’t have the name of the movie in it?

Anyway, I like the new look and LOVE the soundtrack section!

Oooops! Yes, That was a bug! [Wink]

Fixed now, so please re-submit. Thanks [Smile]

And please everyone test things as much as you can. In this complex web world, what works for one user may not work for another, so its very valuable help to me. Thanx [Smile]

Yes, the soundtrack section was one of the main areas that was significantly improved over the old site. I really hope that with everyones help we can make the definitive 80s movies site of all time [Smile]

Good question Jaylee... [Wink] The old system is still there hiding... But is a bit broken with images missing. Still useable, if you're clever... [Wink]

In any case, I'll have it fixed in the next 24 hrs...

So, from tomorrow, if anyone would like to submit, you can by clicking here

In the long run, there'll be a new system entirely. Sorry for the inconvenience, folks [Frown]

Update: The submissions module is fixed and ready now... [Smile]

OMG I love it. You did a lot of hard work and I can't wait to check out some of my favorite movies again and see what is new under them. I really love the videos/coming attraction trailers that you have put on the pages too. That will really help when trying to locate a movie.

Thanks guys [Smile]

The videos have been a major nightmare, because YouTube keep deleting them (presumably b/c of these copyright allegations) so every day they get rid of a bunch. In the end, I had to write a utility to check if they're still there every day! [Frown]

Their final inclusion was a relatively last minute thing, because of these problems. You could literally have a full time job managing just these damn trailers on YouTube [Frown]

But I think it's worth it, b/c there's no better (legal) reminder of a movie than the trailer... [Smile]
