    I ignore/delete PMs and e-mail when it obvious zero research was done, or I can tell bad attitude is abundant.

    I was going to post in response to Stasi, then said nah, then said, yeah, it is about the way he says.

    Boring.

    No longer how to get a good result from a 5 gig convert to 1, 2, even 3 CD-Rs, and get them to play on a DVD standalone.

    Now, seems more like just a media brand bashing site. "All I use is TY", "All I use is Fuji, but only Fuji Japan".

    Noone seems to have a problem that anyone has any answewrs to. They have all been answered, "Try a search", go away, noobie!!!"

    Computers seems to be the only place anyone has a problem with which anyone can help. Only because 'puter probs can be unique, to you, but they have, most likely been dealt with by another member in the past.

    Hey, if you don't want to help, just bitch about all the noobs, just pass on by. Someone will take SOME pity and help.

    Cheers,

    George

    Bad advice given, or poor ratings of a solid product.

    Like "Nero sucks for DVD Burning" or Pinnacle Studio 8 won't work with SP 1 in Windowns XP, things like that cost me time and money when I was starting out.

    Both of these comments turned out to be false, and I wasted time and money with workarounds that were unneeded.

    I agree that there should not be gross exaggerations such as the ones highlighted by you, perhaps all they need is "it didn't work for me" as opposed to outrageous slander.

    Is it fair to say that these were the opinions of the authors and that perhaps new people to the site need to be informed that most information here is in fact opinion normally based on personal experience, and that it should be taken with a grain of salt, and not as gospel ?
    If in doubt, Google it.

    Yes its an expression. Means basicly be careful not everything is always true. At least in this case. for example if I said. "Ok now take this with a grain of salt, but I hear they are putting a record store in town" it means Ok well I've heard this but it may not be true.

    Thanks, I didn't know that!

    - A small story: Once I liked a Brit girl and ask her to be my girlfriend. She said " I don't know about it, it's too early for that, rain or shine....". My answer was the stupiest thing I ever said in English, and cost me the girl too....

    My vote went to "What is the best..." Once in a while, there are excuses for the other options, but I've yet to find an excuse for "What is the best..." topics.

    Interesting that "People who "ignore" the forum rules and want help with their downloaded movies" pisses most off. I somehow get the feeling that under the surface, 50% of all topics would fall under this category. Most are smart/clever/has decensy enough to phrase their question according to rules, but in the end it's still about "how to convert my downloaded screener rip to DVD".

    Sorry, I just assumed it was copyrighted. Is it Public Domain ?
    If in doubt, Google it.

    Agreed. And I wish more people were smart enough to understand this concept.

    Hit it on the head. I guess we only got smart enough when we first saw someone else cop a yellow card for it.

    Let's study these phrases:
    "I downloaded <insert movie here> off Kazaa in tmr.avi format. How do I make a VCD out of it ?"
    AND
    "I backed up <insert movie here> to AVI and I now wish to make a VCD out of it."
    The same question

    The only difference is, one is outlawed on this site.
    If in doubt, Google it.

    You have to give the benefit of the doubt here. True, we all know that many posts involve illegally-obtained movies, but we can't start second-guessing motives and conducting "drumhead" trials every time a thread mentions suspicious activities.

    Baldrick has done everything he can to discourage these sort of posts. It's up to the individual to decide for himself if what he's doing is above-board. We can't force people to do the right thing.

    I download this movie and I want to burn it so I can watch it on my DVD player, how do I do that?
    Should be grounds for immediate revocation of their account. They are too stupid or impatient to bother with. That or they can only post in the Newbie forums, like a hockey penalty :P

    Do you people seriously think there's people here solely for the purpose of renting DVDs from Blockbuster & making copies for themselves?

    Firstly: If you like a DVD, you want the original artwork, back'n'front, booklet, etc.

    Secondly: Blockbuster sux. They have no "adult" section.

    Seriously, I think superficial people like this will not be hanging around forums like this.

    I'm here to learn how to put edited camcorder footage onto DVD with menus etc. In other words = "guerilla (gorilla) filmmaking".

    I'm also interested in BACKING UP old VHS DUBS onto DVD for ARCHIVAL purposes. For all you Aussies & Pommies, you must realize how important it is. Countdown episodes are lost, just like Doctor Who episodes. If there are people out here archiving shit, the world is saved.

    The worst thing about DVDRHelp.com?

    NOTHING!!!!

    Cheers to you!

    Correction - you want this. There are sites available to get cover images anyway.

    You are naive.
    If in doubt, Google it.
