I've received several messages seeking help to post threads when there's a new release, so here's a how-to for anyone who needs it. It'll be kept simple and straight forward, for any minor details that may differ from a generic thread, feel free to ask.

We're using SteelBook as an example, replace where applicable.


Near the top of a given section, you will see a big blue button that's clearly marked POST THREAD:

Click on that and it'll bring up a new page where you can share the info.

1- The first window where you see the words Thread title, is where you will enter the title, following this format: MovieName (Blu-ray SteelBook) [Country]. If the edition includes 4K or 3D discs, then you can input MovieName (4K+2D Blu-ray SteelBook) [Country] or MovieName (3D+2D Blu-ray SteelBook) [Country], etc...

If it's an exclusive to a specific retailer, you can input MovieName (Blu-ray SteelBook) (RetailerName Exclusive) [Country].

2- The second larger window, is where you will input the release info, following this format:

Release date: January 1, 2019
Purchase link: RetailerName
Price: CurrencySymbol and Number
Note: If any notes are worth mentioning, this is where they need to go.

3- If there is any photo (artwork) that needs to be included, click on Attach files.

If you wish to keep tabs and watch the thread you're about to create, check the small boxes as seen below. If you check Watch this thread without checking and receive email notifications, you will get notifications while online in the forum, but you won't receive email alerts.

I will leave this thread open for a while, in case there are any questions related to this topic.

In order to keep things clean and tidy, anything unrelated will be removed.

Also worth mentioning is if do add the artwork to keep it in the vicinity of around 500 pixels in height. This will keep it small enough to not have to scroll too much and also be able to define any sort of good detail. Any larger or extra photos should go inside a spoiler below the the first image.

Any chance if in certain areas of the forums (like this one) when you start a new thread if it could auto populate the text area with:

Release date:
Purchase link:
Price:


Then if it’s an announcement or something they can just delete that and type what they need?

I know, on a few occasions, I was going to be first to post a new SteelBook thread, but I haven't bothered, A) because I didn't want to F it up :spoil:, and B) I knew someone else would have a thread up soon enough. Maybe with these instructions, I'll roll the dice and do it myself next time, but I doubt it. :emb:

No real harm if you do anything "wrong". We're obviously always able to correct them if need be. :)

Not exactly the right place to ask but not sure where else to ask

Is there a sub section / forum for individual to share their steelbook collection picture?
