How cool. It is fascinating to see how the dozen odd (in my own case very odd) of us manage to fill in all sorts of little gaps in our knowledge of IB. Zahir 07:43, 11 February 2006 (PST)

Yeah...I'm going to upload the logo for the BCFCB that I worked up for the SV2245 movie trailer.

Renting Videos

Do they have VCR's? I don't know that they necessarily would. it took having computers. They may have just recently come out, since IB computer tech is equal to our 1980's, right? BoArthur 11:42, 11 February 2006 (PST)

That was my impression. So their VCRs are relatively new-fangled inventions and just beginning to change the nature of the entertainment industry. Zahir 12:08, 11 February 2006 (PST)
Just saying the technology is "1980s" is a bit simplistic. Ask Keith for the details! It may be IB will be able to skip from tape to disks. Or perhaps something akin to flash cards. Elemtilas 14:48, 11 February 2006 (PST)

Home movie standard

Considering this is IB, How about having the slightly obscure CED videodisc being a standard ? the IB version could of course be rewritable:

Otherwise, We might go for one of the other obsolete (but often good) media:

That, or Betamax won. :)

Absolutely fascinating stuff! Here's for magnetic disk phonographs by the 1898 Worlds Fair! By the time television gets off the ground in the 1930s, magnetic disks would be old hat and the only obvious choice for recording until lasers come into the picutre...
There's no reason why IB shouldn't be ahead somewhere, and it seems to be one of IB's hallmarks to take up the technologies abandonned or not developped *here*, as it seems the magnetic disk was. Leastways, as far as video and sound goes. Elemtilas 21:57, 11 February 2006 (PST)
I'd really like to see this idea elaborated on by those who know the technology. --Quentin 04:27, 3 December 2006 (PST)


1) I presume this is used commonwealth-wide, am I correct? 2) For the purposes of clarification, is this exactly the same as in the UK *here*?

And also, was there the same furore over the introduction of 12A certificate? Does one say "X rated"? --Quentin 04:28, 3 December 2006 (PST)

My impression is that R18 is the equivalent of "X-rated." Zahir 09:57, 3 December 2006 (PST)
Or 18 too - honestly, because of the sale restrictions on R18 most people don't know it exists. Also, with the logos - they're very good, but could they be different shapes? --Quentin 12:03, 3 December 2006 (PST)
Sure. Do you mean all of them to be squares? Or for each level to be a different shape? Does anyone else want something other than circles? Zahir 15:14, 3 December 2006 (PST)
Well, I was thinking; what if all of the ones that were the same colour were the same shape? Eg the green ones were triangles, the yellow ones were circles and the red ones squares? Just taking a cue from RL. --Quentin 04:30, 4 December 2006 (PST)
*Here's* BBFC classification system can be seen here. Also, there is a history of the classification system here. --Sikulu 05:35, 4 December 2006 (PST)

Okay, I've redone the artwork, putting Triangles for the two lowest ratings and squares for the most restricted ones. I've also added some texture on the backbrounds. Zahir 07:54, 4 December 2006 (PST)
