The ACD Bi-Weekly Poll: Yes, another fun way to voice your opinion on issues that really matter! Look for a new poll every Monday and Thursday morning. For the sake of fun and legitimacy, please don’t stuff the ballot box — this ain’t Louisiana. Our credo: one man, one vote. Have fun, and be sure to check the previous results.

The ACD Bookshelf: These books (updated May 22, 2000) have been recommended (or in some cases, discouraged!) in various threads at Asian Cinema Discussion. The list is by no means definitive; if you’d like to add to our list, please submit book titles and authors. You are encouraged to submit capsule pro/con comments concerning any of the titles and they will be incorporated into the list (coming soon). If you plan to add any of these titles to your own library via Amazon.com, MHVF will receive a higher commission if you use these title-specific links rather than going through our generic link. As always, thanks for your support.

Moderators: ACD is moderated by Tim Youngs and Todd Harbour. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate in our discussions. As needed, refresh your memory about our posting policy (updated May 29, 2000), and learn more about fellow participants on our biographies page (updated May 29, 2000).

New User Instructions: To create the ability to post, REGISTER in the yellow navigation bar and define a user name and password (a one-time procedure). Please register using your real name (both first and last name preferred) and e-mail address — screen name and pseudonym registrations are discouraged and will be purged. Before you can post, you must LOGIN on the yellow navigation bar (where you can also update your user registration at any time). Posts can be deleted within 15 minutes after posting by clicking on your name next to the message and pressing the DELETE button within the post-edit form. Posts may be modified at any time by clicking on your name next to the post, editing the text, and submitting the revision. To help keep the board’s load time reasonably quick, each message index page is limited to 125 messages. Messages tagged with an orange arrow icon designate posts that are part of a message thread that was started on an older index page. You can access the first post of the thread by clicking on the orange arrow or by clicking on TOP OF THREAD while within any message that is part of the thread.
