Forum: feature_films Subject: Shouldn't Movie Trailers be in the Movie Trailers section?

Hi All,

I am just wondering out loud...

Why are so many MOVIE TRAILERS posted to FEATURE FILMS when there is a section reserved especially for MOVIE TRAILERS?

It's just an issue with my collection. By default items show up in my collection - "The Video Cellar Collection" - and "Feature Films". When the collection was set up, I used to be able to move things around so TV shows showed up in TVCC and "Classic TV" or trailers in "trailers" or cartoons in "Animation", whichever was appropriate.

Apparently, with changes to the way the sections work I can no longer do that. Some staff have said they can no longer do that either. This seems unlikely as many, many items in my collection are still sitting happily accross multiple sections in different "trees" on the site.

The basic choice is to put the just in my collection, where they don't get looked at, or leave them as is in Feature Films and my collection. This all makes categorising the films very difficult and it is making using the site difficult. It is one of the main reasons I hardly ever post anything here anymore.

I really don't have the time to deal with the "this belongs here" issues or the abruptness of some staff when I have asked if it can be changed so that I can do the things that I was able to do when my collection was set up.
