Most new users don't bother reading our rules. Here's the one that is ignored almost immediately upon signup: DO NOT ASK FOR FANEDIT LINKS PUBLICLY. First, read the FAQ. Seriously. What you want is there. You can also send a message to the editor. If that doesn't work THEN post in the Trade & Request forum. Anywhere else and it will be deleted and an infraction will be issued.
If this is your first time here please read our FAQ and Rules pages. They have some useful information that will get us all off on the right foot. More details on our policies, especially our Own the Source rule are available here. If you do not understand any of these rules send a private message to one of our staff for further details.

Conceptual improvements/advancements of edit over original: This edit removes about five minutes worth of "over the top" moments from the infamous second installment in the Indiana Jones movies. It lessens some of Willie's most obnoxious hysterics and one-liners, and removes most of the gratuitous "ickiness" during the dinner scene which detracts from the actual revelation of the plot. The result is a more streamlined film with a somewhat stronger female character, yet it doesn't betray her fish-out-of-water nature throughout the film. In the past I've joked that I can't wait for Indy IV so there will finally be a trilogy. But now I find this movie (which was not all that bad, it just had some severe misguidance) quite watchable. Hopefully you will too.
