I noticed that you did not link to the original articles on your front page but simply copy and pasted them. That's not only a huge breach of ettiquette, but is also illegal. Did you read the copyright terms and conditions page on the audioholics website, from which you're stealing the articles? It specifically says:

"Audioholics does not give permission for any articles to be replicated at anyone else's website."

Not only that, but I can read those articles over at the original site. Why am I going to go to another site to read the same stuff?

Skepticism aside, what will the new forum be offering? What topics will be primarily focused on, who is the target audience and how will it differ, if at all, from avsforums, for example?

I have trouble enough keepign up with the Axiom chat, only have sparse time to engage in any disussion over at avs, and have stayed away from the spot for lack of time, too.

Not to pick on you - Just wondering what value the new forum brings to the table.

Point taken guys, I will fix the articles on the front page.

The forum will be geared toward Home Theater enthusiast but mainly the HD guys like myself.

It will be alot like AVS or any other Home Theater forum, I just wanted to put my own spin on things and have my own forum. This forum will be "sculpted" by the members. I am very open to suggestions and what the members would like to see. I want it to be a friendly family type board with all the latest info and so forth.

Join if you like, or dont, just thought I would let you guys know.

I'll consider joining - When we're talking HD, will it be OTA HD, HD DVR, HD-DVD & Blue Ray, or what? Will it be everything HD (to include sound), or just video? Will there also be discussion on monitors?

Its always fun to have more fora on the internet, especially when some others get too big to wade through in any meaningful way (avsforum, for example)

Let us know when the site is up and running.

If you check out the website, it appears it will cover all aspects of HD.
