We’re concentrating on DVDs right now, but there’s no reason why any other type of disc can’t be exchanged in the same way in future. We plan to add blu-ray discs and CDs as soon as we can. After that, we hope to extend the exchange service to include CD-roms, games, etc.
There are no prescribed rules for this, but you may find it helpful to read the guidance notes here.
Registration stops bots spamming. You have to supply a real email address then activate your account via a link that we’ll send to it. Once you’re registered, we can use the email address to let you know when DVDs are posted that you might be interested in, and for other members to contact you by. (Messages are sent… Read More »
The more members there are, the more DVDs available to other members. So the more likely it is to find ones of interest. So to encourage as many people as possible to register and to post DVDs for exchange, you don’t have to pay a penny to register or to use the facilities. Perhaps we’ll start charging a… Read More »
An avatar is a graphical representation of you. It doesn’t have to be a photograph, it can – for instance – be a company logo. If you haven’t uploaded your own, and don’t have a Gravatar associated with the email address you used to register, you’ll be represented by the default avatar shown on the left. You can… Read More »
Yes. Easily. And we won’t bombard you with questions about why you left, promise. Besides you won’t delete it!
Visits to the site are recorded for statistical purposes but it isn’t possible, nor do we want or need, to identify individuals from this information. [Actually it probably is, but it would be an awful lot of work so we’d have to really, really want to … and we really, really don’t!] Some personal data is recorded if… Read More »
There are a few items with no visible links to them, just because they’re not relevant to the main purpose of the site; but, it’s easier for us to include them here than set up a separate website to display them. The easiest options are: use the back button on your browser to return to the page you… Read More »
None. Well, none we’ve found yet anyway. The site’s fairly robust too. And regularly backed up. So the short answer is … “Try it, see what happens.” [If something DOES blow your computer up, let us know, OK? That would be rather cool!]
It’s a WordPress installation, using a theme based on the Iconic One theme by Themonic. A score of plugins provide additional functionality where needed. We add to and remove these too frequently to maintain an accurate list, though one worth specifically naming and recommending is Custom Content Type Manager an extremely well documented plugin which really lets you… Read More »
Stuff we post ourselves is, we believe, family-friendly. Visitors can post comments freely. So that we don’t delay these items they’re not usually moderated. Of course we expect visitors to be sensible and considerate, and not to post inappropriate material. But it could happen. If you come across something that you think is, let us know. We’ll take… Read More »
This website is constantly changing, so whilst we’re confident that things worked properly when we set them up, it’s not totally outside the realms of possibility that something we’ve later done has had an unforeseen consequence elsewhere. So if you try something, and something weird happens, let us know OK? While you’re waiting for a response, just carry… Read More »

Although they all basically do the same job, different browsers – of which there are several major ones in common use – actually render things to your screen in slightly different ways. To complicate things even more, within each type of browser you can usually personalise it quite a lot – for example by making the text size… Read More »
Things generally fall into one of three categories: graphics and text we’ve created ourselves; things we’ve got a licence or the copyright holder’s permission to use; publicly available graphics – such as the DVD images provided by IMDB. If it isn’t immediately obvious which is which, assume we own the copyright and ask us. (If we don’t own… Read More »
It’s a big patch of land full of grass or crops. But in computer terms it’s an area you can fill out, like First Name field and Town | City field. They can be text fields designed for just one or two words, text boxes designed for lots of words, date fields where the entry has to be… Read More »
At the top of screens containing multiple items you’ll sometimes find followed by words or phrases written like this These are tags. Each post can have one or more tags linked to it. When you click a tag the post list is regenerated to show only those tagged with what you’ve chosen. The list of tags itself may… Read More »
You should see our copyright policy here for full details, but the quick answer is tell us what it is and ask us. If the permission is ours to give, we’ll usually give it, so long as we’re suitably credited obviously.
