    This is MacRumors, not EntertinamentWeeklyRumors. An entire forum dedicated to something which has nothing to do with Macs, Apple, etc. is not appropriate here.

    There are many TV shows and movies which have their own official threads in the Community section here on MacRumors for members to discuss, so I'd suggest making a thread there. An entire forum on MacRumors though? Not gonna happen. :cool:

    There have been multiple threads on this topic already, and its been decided that it fits best into the community forum.

    Exactly - that's precisely what the Community forum is for.

    Considering that Apple is selling more and more TV shows and movies I don't think this would be such a bad idea.

    Lets say for arguments sake that we make a TV/Film-Entertainment forum and also have Pod-Vidcast discussions as well.

    Yep - there's audio - which is Music and audio podcasts.

    And - video - movies, TV shows, and vidcasts.

    I don't see why not... I understand though if there's the feeling that there are too many forums already.

    You did create a forum before I even asked - a Console Games forum (the game forum was getting overwhelmed)... and the AppleTV forum too...

    The :apple:TV forum was asked for, as was the seperate games forum several times before.
    To me both of those additions make sense, but I don't really see a need for a TV shows forum, unless it were to be an offshoot of the community forum.

    Perhaps make the Movie/TV Show a sub-forum in the AppleTV Forum or iPod/iTunes Forum.

    I would reverse it, Make the Apple TV forum a sub forum of the "entertainment" forum as I see the Apple TV taking a back seat to the discussions.

    I am resurrecting this thread because I used the search utility instead of creating a new thread on the same topic.

    I would like a Movie Discussion board under the Special Interests category. We have one devoted to music and it would be nice to have TV show and movie discussions to not get buried in the community board.

    How about a "Movies, TV Shows" etc. Forum Section?

    What if Mac Rumors extends on Community Discussion and adds a "Moves, TV Shows" etc. section? Anyone think this might be good? Bad? Post your thoughts.

    The only question I have is, at what point do we begin to create sub-forums for every popular medium of entertainment? Should there be a "Literature" forum, a radio forum, a magazine forum, etc?

    Not that I'm necessarily against the idea, but I would like to know where the line is drawn (if you will) on determining the qualifications for a new sub-forum. I mean surely there are more sports related threads than tv/movie ones correct? Should there be a separate forum for that as well? How about personal advice? Food/drink? Social networking? These all seem to be popular topics don't you think?

    I agree. They can't go around adding every single category we can think of.
