Q) I've got a problem, who do I contact?
A) You should contact a Moderator or Super Moderator by either posting openly on the forum or sending a Private Message (PM). You will find The Moderator details for each forum at the end of the page (bottom right). The only queries that should be sent directly to Admin are 1) Lost MG's, 2) Login Issues and 3) Serious issues with a Moderator / Super Moderator (however, you can contact another Super Moderator is the last instance also)

Q) How soon after it's cinema/theatre release will a movie be available on movieonline?
A) As you know, a brand new movie is usually screened in theatre, then it can be watched on BR or DVD, and our movies are from DVDRIP source. So it depends on how long it is at the theatre and then when we can get a reliable DVDRIP source.
