Honestly, it depends on the level of interest.
The problem is we have very few high quality, consistent contributors and unless people really wanted a Movies section and plenty of contributors were willing to jump on it, it's a hard sell.
Artists / Bands typically release several albums, they have many concerts and can be active for years, TV shows typically have several seasons, again remaining active for years, movies on the other hand are typically a one shot deal.
The amount of work that would be required to fill out a Movie section would be tremendous, I'll be honest, I would love to have a Movies section, it would nicely round out the site, but, without commitment from a lot of contributors, I can't see it happening.
Moderating the site is hard work, and moderators have historically not hung around much after their own collection was finished, the problem with this is, if you take away the contributors who consistently provide high quality images (leepenny for example), the people who submit really crappy images far exceeds those who provide acceptable ones.
This means moderators have to spend a long time going through the images, weeding out the bad ones, denying them and telling the user why they are denied (and where possible with some tips on what to do), with a section like movies where it's a one shot deal, it's very likely the amount of crappy images being submitted could explode.
So basically if a few people want to step up and moderate a movie section, and a fair few contributors (who have a history or quality submissions) were commited, I'd be more than happy to add the section.
Hope that helps

I agree with Kode if there a a group of users who wish to implement this and can regularly submit images and time then I suppose its a possibility allbeit a massive job. Anyone up for the challenge??

well you can count me among the interested. I would of course be more then happy to contribute/moderate if need be.
personally though I feel that a Movie section would be if anything easier to contribute to then to a Music, or TV section. Fanart can easily be generated from a 1080P source like a Blu-Ray or HD Trailer if a High Resolution photo can not be found. More sites offer Higher Resolution Posters, Amazon or Blu-Ray.com for instance have posters for every movie in their cataloge often times the sizes exceeding 1000X1000. Digital purchasing too is also less for movies then for Music say. it makes it easier to scan and upload disc art. personally I have thousands of digitally purchased songs. but only hundreds of actual cds. where as I have Hundreds of Physical movie copies, but only 5-10 digital copies.

Is something wrong with website? From homepage, all cleararts are clipped to logo size. It wasn't like that before, no?
- Kode - 2011-07-29 09:28
Yeah, it looks like it's not applying the right css file, I was looking at integrating bbpress which means setting up a child theme and it looks like its loading the child themes css before the main css.
Something wrong with the website is stretching it a bit though, it just looks a bit odd

Thanks Kode. I just thought it was maybe my computer, is been acting weird all day. Keep up the good work.

I noticed the Donate button appeared in last couple of days. I donated £20 (30 USD$)
I hope other people will give even $5 to support this great website and wonderful resource. If you can't contribute financially, do a logo, make a clearart, have a go.
If you've benefited, try and give something back. Let's keep this great site going and thriving and even take it further (logos and cleararts for movies? cleararts for music?) It's all possible if enough people are prepared to have a go.

Hi jacktyler, thanks for the support, it's much appreciated, especially the images you have been contributing.
To all, I have been working on a massive project at work, so have had next to no time to work on the site, however, I'm not far off completing the project, so I hope to have the time getting stuck in again with the site code.

Kode, your work is really appreciated. I've noticed Leepenny is missing in action. We want him back! If you're reading this LeePenny, I think you're a genius. PURE GENIUS. Sometimes it feels like a thankless task doing logos and cleararts. I for one, have loads of your logos running on my HTPC. And I really appreciate them and I appreciate you.
Thumbs up to everyone that dares to try

one more thing, it's not fair to expect Leepenny to meet all your your requests. Poor guy must be burnt out from trying. Lee's logos are pure brilliant. I don't think people understand how much work and time he puts into them. LeePenny, I want you to have a break, but I want you to come back as soon as possible. I miss you.
