Site Name: Movie Hotel
Site Link: http://moviehotel.net

We are a new movie community providing users with movie chit-chat and actor & crew infomation. We also have information on Voice Actors, Composers & more. We are happy to expand to suit users. We have arcade, medals & other features suitable for our board. We have our own Academy Awards page with winner's listed and a link to the winner's trailer. Hugo & The Artist winning five Oscar's each have their own custom page. We have features such as galleries for first-look on The Hobbit, eight films we dislike, and looking to expand this section with other neat stuff. We keep users up to date with the latest movie news & gossip. Those who are looking for a new wallpaper can use our own custom made Movie Hotel wallpaper inside the Wallpapers section and those who have movie websites/forums can have their link added to our links page. We have a trailers section and looking to expand on that too but right now we have four trailers for upcoming films: Men in Black 3, The Hunger Games, Brave & Wrath of the Titans. Please note our trailers section is only a page for featured trailers. All other trailers can have a movie topic started inside the movie discussions forum area. We recommend you join as we are always going to expand with new stuff. This is a forum for movie fans old and new. Whether you only like a certain movie, or you like all of them we cater for all and again are willing to expand to suit user needs.

Promoter: We are looking for someone to actively promote the forums, request services etc. All information for this is inside our global announcement topic. Promoter will be given $25 per month with a high chance of further additional cash if I feel they do their job correctly and how I would like them to do it. It's just a matter of dropping our advertisement template in as many forums/sites as you can, blog using our site link, bump ad topics etc. Also exchanges will be needed to be done but I can help with that so long as you take part. It's an easy to do job but we need the right person to do it.

How long will this site stay up for?: While we have had problems with past forums Movie Hotel is here to stay. Forum Hotel got closed due to all the competition and there wasn't really a need for yet another ad forum. We've sold it and the new owner of FH plans to continue to run it. Also movies are my favorite thing ever so I know exactly how to run a movie forum. We have no intentions to close down, nor will we ever. There is little to no movie forums out there right now that are run by people who actually have as much movie knowledge as I do. So this is where the uniqueness comes in. Most movie forums are just discussions only. We offer features such as galleries etc.

Why do we use phpBB: PhpBB gives us what we need. It's easy to create custom pages, easy to edit MODs to suit our needs and more. Software such as MyBB, SMF, paid etc don't really offer the customization we need for the board. Also phpBB is my favorite forum software and therefore I can build MODs that we need etc. I've already built one that is being used on the board. I would rather focus on content than worrying about how things work on a software I dislike, or hardly know anything about.

Custom Theme: In due time there will be a custom theme. We are looking to add what we need to add such as trailers etc before we think about purchasing a custom theme. Though I do not believe a forum needs to have a custom theme to be a success. There are tons of active forums using Prosilver (The default phpBB theme).

Stats: We've got over 1000 posts and 50 members before official release. This is due to a few different reasons. All what you need to know though is there is tons to reply to. Feel free to widen our movie and actor/actress forums with some of your picks if you want.

Facebook & Twitter: We've got social network accounts to let people know of any downtime issues, site issues etc plus we will post updates about new trailers and stuff we have & other stuff too. We recommend you follow/like us. Links to our social network accounts can be seen in our global announcement topic.

The forum has been quiet recently which is mainly due to me being at fault. I haven't really had the time to advertise, or do exchanges etc. I shall start advertising more etc this week.

Homepage has been deleted and all content from our homepage has been moved to our trailers page. I don't really feel there is a reason for a homepage just yet.
