Let's be honest here. That editing probably took about 2 hours. Maybe.

Or as I call it, a Neg FEOTM special.





ZING!!!

As a great man once said

"I'm talking about drawing a line in the sand, Dude. Across this line, you DO NOT... Also, Dude, Chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature. Asian-American, please."

One scene was cut from Pulp Fiction. Yes, the film was reordered to be chronological so it would make a new viewing experience. But the fact remains that the story is the exact same. The amount of time somebody spends on an edit IS NOT a factor. I said this

as a DIRECT response to this

Also, the EXACT classification of what exactly is a Custom Edit or a Special Edition isn't 100% set in stone.

Truthfully, the fact that this section is back is awesome in my eyes. You know what this means? Edits like Transformers: Attack of the Score, A New Hope Revisited PURIST Edition, Paranormal Activity Double Feature, Nightmare Before Christmas - The Angrysvn Special Edition are no longer a cause of debate over whether or not they are fanedits.

This category expands the horizon on what people can create. You want to make The Crow black & white without cutting anything? Go right ahead. You want to replace all of Jar Jar Bink's dialogue but leave the masterpiece that is TPM intact? Be my guest. You want to make commentaries for all your favorite movies but don't want to edit them? Boom. You want to cut only a few minutes out of Cop Land but you're worried it may not be a drastic enough change to list it on fanedit.org? DO IT. You want to make Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows 1 single movie but don't want to cut out anything? You have my permission.

Why can these edits be done now and a couple months ago they weren't allowed?

Because fanedit.org only lists the information about the fanedits. We do not provide a means of downloading edits. And with The Internet Fanedit Database, we want it to be a focal point of all legally created fanedits. So as long as the fanedit was made from legal sources (and you're an approved Faneditor) you can submit it to IFDB.

I understand what you're driving at, Neg, even if no one else does!

Gosh, I'm such a brown-noser. :-P

I agree, I think it's great that this opens the doors for a lot of "edits" that wouldn't previously be allowed on site. What I was trying to get at is that as far as I can remember the point of a fan edit is to give viewers a whole new viewing experience. Sure cutting one scene isn't enough to qualify something as a fan edit, but by re-ordering the scenes the viewer is seeing the film differently than before and that should help qualify it as a fan edit. Just my opinion though. I'm not trying to start some huge debate here.

Well yes, any fanedit does have a primary intention to give a new viewing experience. That's a given. The categories in IFDB are there to help viewers decide what fanedit they may like.

Do they think the original needed to be fixed? Would they prefer to see a remix of their favorite movie? Or would they just want to see it with one or two things cut out?

Yeah, I think we all agree that each type is valid and worthwhile. It's more a matter of helping people pick what "flavor" of fan edit they feel like at the time of viewing.
