Topic: Update: Staff Recommendations in Releases
For a while now myself and others have been concerned about the Releases forum on BiM, as the increasing volume of films posted appears to have led to fewer films being viewed and being responded to. It is a shame when a great brickfilm struggles to get the attention it deserves, and though we have plans to address the issue in a site redesign, I wanted a stopgap solution as soon as possible. We have now added an icon in the Releases forum denoting that a film has been recommended by a member of staff. The icon is this gold stud, appearing before a thread title:
Films chosen will also be added to the Recommended category in the directory, which has been dormant for a while.
Please do not request a stud or imply that a stud is surely coming soon, whether on your own film or another members. Studs are a reflection of individual staff preferences, not an evaluation of objective quality. Soliciting of studs may be deleted.
