This topic is for official announcements regarding The Quentin Tarantino Archives (both the main news website, The Archives, and this forum). It is read-only.
We have officially re-launched The Quentin Tarantino Archives’ forums, about 17 years after they were first born. Stay tuned for more detailed updates on what this all means, where you can find more information, and so on.
Some updates on the organization of the forum:
- International Forums is now a main category again
- There are less sub-forums now, e.g. Films > Kill Bill, but that one doesn’t have any more sub sections like we used to have, like for soundtracks. Instead, topics can be tagged now
- Tags: We are slowly starting to tag some posts
- We are working on cleaning up a lot of old stuff that is no longer relevant, deleting topics, merging posts, rewriting some of the FAQs and help topics. Help us out if you want, point out stuff that needs cleaning
- Categories still need their own colors, descriptions and images, we are working on it
Here is the announcement
