Are super8 covers allowed?

I was wondering if Super8 (8mm film) covers are allowed on VHS Collector? I have made 2 scans of Super8 cartoons that were distributed by Revue Film. On the following website is a example of what it looks like http://www.super-8-hobby.de/revue8602.jpg

I know 8mm film is pre analog, but I am not sure if I may or may not upload those covers. I know it is possible to select "Other" at Format when you are in "Add Cover/Release".

Are there any commercial super 8 databases on the web? If not, I can definitely incorporate it here. In fact, I think its a pretty good idea, since the birth of Home Video stems from the early super8 films sold commercially.

I have only found one database in German language so far: http://www.super-8-hobby.de/stumm.htm it's the same website I used for the example, which is part of http://www.super-8-hobby.de/super8.htm

For as far as my German goes, the owner is preserving covers, stills and information that came along with the Super 8 reels.

Very interesting, but the site doesn't seem to have as many as I think there are out there, and it seems to be mostly German releases. It also doesn't have any database functionality, Just a table really. I think adding Super 8 to this site is a great idea. In fact, there a few other tape formats I have to include as well.

My thought exactly. It looks more like a website that is putting Super 8 covers on display. There certainly has to be more out there. It's great to hear that you like to include this tape format on VHS Collector. I have 2 reels in my collection and will upload the covers with the correct info asap.

maybe a bit off topic, but I love your movie reviews man! I really am glad to see I am not the only person out there that can appreciate certain types of movies.

Happy New Year in advance!

Adding Super8 movies to the database was a great suggestion! Thanks, I'm always trying to improve this site and make it as robust as possible.

I'm glad you enjoyed the reviews. Someday I'll have to get around to doing more!

There should also be laserdisc covers here just as well.

People can actually add laserdiscs as of now, but I was considering removing them from the site because there's already a pretty amazing laserdisc database at lddb.com.
