    Moderators how about it? There seems to be a lot of duplication of these type of threads because of the lack of use of the "search function". A sticky for each subject would hopefully help those who are not inclined to search.

    It sounds like a great idea.
    But may I mention something ? (and I hope it will be taken the right way and not as some attempt to torpedo your suggestion)

    May i mention,
    in fairness to and with regards to the amount of time
    and hard work invested and also with regard to preventing time spent in duplicating that which is done,
    before any work gets underway in this forum perhaps the
    existing threads should be noted :

    "16:9 & Dts DVD Exclusives Outside Of Region 1"

    "DEFINITIVE List of DVDs EXCLUSIVELY available OUTSIDE the US-PartIII"

    "Database of English-friendly French DVDs"

    "The Definitive list of Italian Dvds (All Regions)"

    "International listing of etailers, reviews, forums & resources for online shopping"

    That's a great compilation indeed. I hesitate, to say the least, to really mix the related ones together, because it would make the end-result something of a mess.

    BTW, Jeff, what do you mean by 'the lack of use of the search-function'?

    And at least half the time when I try it the search function is not available, so I don't try it as often as I might.

    So this solves it. Sounds good to me... [​IMG]

    Jeff,

    I see. You were actually reprimanding people. [​IMG]


    Mark,

    That was in the past, when we were on the old server. The Search function was disabled during rush hours. But lately (at least during the last several months), it's supposed to work as normal as can be.

    I guess my idea was without merit in the eyes of the powers that be.

    Jeff and Jim,

    The problem is, we cannot make it sticky all the time and what topics should we "stick" besides this one?

    This is an excellent thread, and it will easily come up when searched for (multi-region, R1, modified, etc.).

    Cees
