How to post

Post by Emiliano » 05/09/2018, 23:49

This is a discussion forum, but mostly a searchable document, like a book, where the reading must focus on the actor and not on closely personal considerations.

Comments in the topics of the actors should be limited (there is a chat for this purpose), while biographical data or considerations directly related to the film should be entered. A post made only of "How nice!" "Extraordinary!" " yeah!" and smiles ( :thumbup: ;) :D ) must not find space in the actor's topic.

For speeches and more you can always use the chat or make new topics in the Blue Bar forum.

To make the reading of the pages more pleasant and above all make the title of the film from which the snapshot is taken, more clener, a precise setting pagination is required.

The posts in the actors' forums MUST be written only with photos and captions.

For reports without images, please use this topic. All the reports (credits without images) must be made in this cumulative topic, so after that we can then be put in order in the actor's topic according to the scheme used.

First of all, write your line in tiny block letters: Title of the movie (in bold style - read further below how to do it), year of production (in brackets), role / part played by the actor (in italic). Then, wrapping with text, write your comment, as you like.

How to apply the bold style to the title
Hai sbagliato dovevi uccidermi subito (1972) as Man in the saloon at a table

Summing up
" B ": bold text, used to highlight the movie title.
For example: Profondo rosso (1975).

" I ": italic text, used to highlight the role of the actor in the film.
For example Profondo rosso (1975) as Marcus Dali

How to upload images

Post by Emiliano » 17/04/2021, 11:05

Since we have unlimited web space to upload images, we do not use external hosting sites.
The maximum size for each individual attachment is 1 MB, but files of a much smaller size are preferable!

To insert the image directly in the forum, read the follow guide. The uploading procedure is very easy:

Click on Upload image
image01.jpg

Browse and double click over your image
image02.jpg

Click on Place in post (under the caption)
image03.jpg

Click on Submit when the post is ready and the attachment will appear.
It is also possible to drag and drop the image directly from the folder to the post window.

You can always delete the image to replace it or to replace the text by clicking on this icon at the top right of your post.

Adult pictures
The hot pics can be upload as you like but with the "censorship star" on the genital organs. This is not because of bigotry, but because this forum, under Italian law, is not meant to contain images of this type.
Pictures taked from the net
You don't have to "steal" snapshots from other sources. All uploaded snapshots must have been made by the individual user, otherwise they will be deleted.
Disclaimer

Le immagini esposte sono utilizzate solo ad uso di critica e discussione. I detentori dei diritti, qualora lo ritenessero opportuno, possono chiederne l'immediata rimozione inviando un messaggio con questo modulo. Si rammenta che nel dicembre 2011 è stata approvata una modifica alla Legge italiana sul diritto d’autore (633/1941), che prevede l’introduzione del comma 1 bis all’articolo 70. La nuova norma recita:
1. Il riassunto, la citazione o la riproduzione di brani o di parti di opera e la loro comunicazione al pubblico sono liberi se effettuati per uso di critica o di discussione, nei limiti giustificati da tali fini e purchè non costituiscano concorrenza all'utilizzazione economica dell'opera; se effettuati a fini di insegnamento o di ricerca scientifica l'utilizzo deve inoltre avvenire per finalità illustrative e per fini non commerciali.
(1-bis. E' consentita la libera pubblicazione attraverso la rete internet, a titolo gratuito, di immagini e musiche a bassa risoluzione o degradate, per uso didattico o scientifico e solo nel caso in cui tale utilizzo non sia a scopo di lucro. Con decreto del Ministro per i beni e le attivita' culturali, sentiti il Ministro della pubblica istruzione e il Ministro dell'università e della ricerca, previo parere delle Commissioni parlamentari competenti, sono definiti i limiti all'uso didattico o scientifico di cui al presente comma).
3. Il riassunto, la citazione o la riproduzione debbono essere sempre accompagnati dalla menzione del titolo dell'opera, dei nomi dell'autore, dell'editore e, se si tratti di traduzione, del traduttore, qualora tali indicazioni figurino sull'opera riprodotta.

F.A.Q.

Post by Emiliano » 21/09/2021, 12:03

How to capture a still image from a movie?
Two freeware program fit for purpose are Media Player Classic and VLC Player. By default VLC Player makes snapshots in PNG format. We prefer JPG format because it's smaller and faster to download.
Can I put a movie title in the main filmography of the actor?
Not, you can't post the title of a film directly in the filmography of the actor (at the first post). The first available moderator has the responsibility to check your post and update the filmography with your signalation.
Can I enter a new actor who is not present?
Certainly, however, it must fall into one of the categories described above. And you must have at least 3 images of 3 different roles of him. On the first post, this is the formatting you need to follow.

Click on SELECT ALL below, copy and paste this code into your new post:

Code: Select all

[b]actor's name[/b] in [b]movie title[/b] (YEAR)
attachment link

[title]Filmography[/title]
[b][d]YEAR[/d][/b][list=1]
[*]1st movie .... role (credited?)
[*]2nd movie .... role (credited?)

[b]YEAR[/b]
[*]
[*]
[/list]

[subtitle]Other works[/subtitle]
[list]
[*] 
[*] 
[/list]
Have you seen a movie and would like to know who is a specific actor?
Open a new topic in this specific forum, than upload the images of your actor. We will try to help you.

In case of urgent problems or complaints, contact the Administrator.
