The video section was removed because there was one single post in it lol. If people want to post videos they normally do so with reviews so where the review section is there will be videos :) Not much of a point in having the same videos duplicated in another section.

Yeah definitely. The review section is the best place then we get to learn all the details as well as see it in action.

Well I find forums always have limitations, the main web site should be updated though because the I know tesco fireworks for 2012 are not on there yet.

I see your point, But the review section helps none enthusiasts and as well as enthusiasts, when information becomes available, If you wish to post in the review section you need to keep to the layout, If there isn't much information on that firework you're posting, you only need to put N/A next to the field and it will get updated as time goes on.

I did remove the old video category, as berry pointed out it wasn't going anywhere basically. The review section is good it take time to get used to :).

When we have details and videos of the supermarket fireworks we will post them on the review section and the supermarket thread :) so you can see the firework live and read more information about it

Yes :) this is why the forum got set up, i am hopefully going to make all future supermarket leaflet visible on the forum only, not the blog, the future blog is only going to be used, for articles, reviews, ect.

SEO is always good to do as i really think now you have the forum this site has real potetnial for your every day firework shopper they can know what there getting and work out there best value for money,

not sure i am picking oyu up right but do you mean in the say asda leaflet put links to the review section that has information on them particular fireworks? would be a good idea if that what you are meaning

I Mean, Say for example. New thread title (Asda firework leaflet 2013) in the post, There will be pictures of the fireworks like it is now. and then there will be a links to the review section on the brand asda will be selling, So if asda sells tnt again that year, Rockets, barrage, ect They will be hot link to that brand :)
