If you guys are going to place screen shots in your reviews you should start now. Other wise the amount of reviews will be far too grate and it will be more work. I think that while someone checks and revises the reviews another one can implement the screenshots in the reviews.

The site needs more color and well images are a must if you want to make the site more attractive.

That's precisely what I was planning for. I had noted that we must put in the screenshots before we can add more to the database months ago.

Anyways, the problem here is: who will do it?

Group effort

Someone takes A-E, F-M, N-S, T-Z

and how many screenshots per review, and where to put them. I think 160x120 is a good size. maybe 120x90

I like 160x120.

I'll be willing to look up, resize, and add screenshots to the reviews.  I'll take A-M, or hell I could just do them all if that's easier.  What should the format be for the screenshots?  I sort of liked what we had set up before.  Simple, yet presentable.

My recommendation is that you guys place the screens (3 should be more than enough with out bandwidth problems) after The Highlights.

Lets be honest a lot of people don't read the entire review they just go for the summary, the score and the highlights, so if you place the screens after the highlights it will be perfect. And for the people that do read the entire thing, it won't be too far up or too far below the page this way you garantee everyone will get a glance at the screens.

Okay, thanks DT. We need a couple of screens on one or two reviews to see how it works out. Anyone willing to pump out three good screenshots for any title? I'll give you one or two days.

Here's what the screenshots "should" be like:
- a one pixel white border
- sharp and clear
- widescreen should have the black bars on the top and bottom

Check my FLCL review.

Edit-  Why the white border?  It looked good when we had a colored background, but now it doesn't seem to have a point.  Maybe if we had a black and white border, it would look a bit better.  Check the first screenshot and you'll see what I mean.  I left the other different so you could compare and make a choice.

Just a black border is > white and black. And if it was white you wouldn't be able to see it anyway.

Errrgh, yea black border was what I meant...

Just a black border is good enough.

And yes, that review looks very nice now!

So let's go for it!

PS: You guys realized that our graphics for the ratings have been thrown off because of some scripting conflict with the old editor and our new one? You gotta do a certain something to fix that:

Replace <^img.....^> with

<^img border="0" alt="X/10" src="http://www.nihonreview.com/images/rankX.png" ^/>

Where X is the rating. [The carrot tops are used to make the code appear on the forum in text. Remove them when actually applying the HTML]

Umm...do you want me to e-mail you screenshots that I have for my reviews, or would you prefer to find your own?

That would be great Kuma.  Make sure to label them so we know what they're from.

Keep in mind that we will discard screenshots that we think "are bad." Quality is a priority. If you can't take screenshots, then please don't. (that's to everyone, not just you, Kuma)

I'm going to need someone to get me some screenshots from Arjuna and the two Cardcaptor Sakura movies.  I've got up to, but not including them done tonight.
