Time to Throw in the Towel

Ok, this entirely my opinion, you don't have to agree with me, but here it goes:

I think it is time to hand this website over to more capable hands.  This is nothing against the creators of VHScollector,  but I think the limit to where they can take it has been reached.  Perhaps it is time to consider merging this database with the likes of filmogs, which is run by the folks over at discogs.  Submissions have been closed for over 5 months now: this database has hit a roadblock. I get the guy was sick and had school but this should only further the argument that something needs to be done i.e. giving the database over to professionals.

Again, this is only my opinion, it probably won't be a popular one, but I've had it on my mind for a while, thought I'd share.  I love this website and really really appreciate the hours and hours of work, time, and energy put into it.

I pretty much have to agree.

I spoke to Slasher Index about a month ago about this very same issue; he's told me he doesn't want to give up on the site - he's invested too much of his time into it. 

He's recovered from his illness but there haven't been any new entries because - so he told me - he's gotten someone to develop an entirely new site. He told me the site would be ready "by October" - though he said it'd probably take longer, and he was right.

If everything he's told me is true, hopefully submissions will be back by the end of the month. Patience is a virtue, but - as I'm sure you all know - it can only go so far...

The guy's better, now that's left is the development. I can't wait.

I don't want to have to be SlasherIndex's conduit to the rest of you, and I don't necessarily know if he wants me telling you all this, but he's got a video coming soon detailing what's happened - it'll be longer now is all I'll say.

He's also running a GoFundMe: https://www.gofundme.com/help-rebuild-vhscollectorcom

It's driving me crazy but I'm willing to wait a little while longer. I have a lot of releases that are not in the database. If someone beats me to one of them, good. I came here at the wrong time. When submissions are up again, I will submit 25 or so titles a week so brace yourselves; I'd love to see your submissions too. We've only barely scratched the surface.

I have several scans as well, and if someone beats me to them, so be it.
