If we had a trivia filed, great place for this stuff, but for now I would put it in your Notes filed.

It's an easter egg in the movie, not in the DVD, which is the purpose of the Easter Egg section of the profile.


You could say so... but then again this program is "DVD Profiler" not "Movie Profiler"   

My post was not clear.  I meant that the stated purpose of the Easter Egg section of the profile is DVD eggs, not movie eggs.  So I agree with you.

Ya, was just thinking like some of the others here, that a Trivia filed should be added. With so many movies with hidden in movie salutes to other movies, there should be someplace to add this info. You can put it in notes for now, but I use the notes for other things.

The best place to put it would be in a "Trivia" section. But since we don't have that, I don't see what harm it can do to stick it in the Easter Egg section.


Just one more thing. The fact that there's no place to put trivia, does not mean it's OK to put it somewhere else. It simply means that trivia can't be submitted. If you want to be able to submit trivia, you should lobby for a trivia section. Destroying the easter egg section is not the way to go.

But there is a place to put trivia. It is called "Notes".

I added it to Notes myself. Part of me would like to have a contributable field for Trivia so we can share the info easier. But (a somewhat larger) part of me thinks that could be a nightmare.

Or, if there is enough cry for it, change the rules to allow film easter eggs as well as DVD ones.

I agree - it would be a nightmare. One mans trivia is another mans garbage...   

A Trivia section could be implemented as local only though, as we can share our Trivia in the forums so people can choose for themselves...

A local only field would be the best thing (for those that already use notes for too many things!) I certainly wouldn't want to change the rules for Easter Eggs to allow them. I still feel strongly they are 2 different things and should be kept separately.

The R2D2 trivia was actually approved in another Star Trek profile as an Egg. I had some doubts that it qualified as a true Easter Egg when I voted. Since Gerri has officially stated that it is not an official Easter Egg in this thread, I'll submit a removal of it.

I think it would be good to have this kind of info shared, just not in the Easter eggs filed. It would be a nice addition to the profiler.
