I'm not overly familiar with the film, but it sounds to me like Martino came up with the basic concept, D'Avack developed a proper treatment from that, and Gastaldi wrote the script.

So I'd suggest:
D'Avack - Developed by
Martino - Story
Gastaldi - Screenwriter

My guess (and this is only a guess) is that your notes weren't specific enough.  Anything else tends to have an explanation. 

Re-submit it and it'll probably be fine.

I'm sorry but a post like this just bugs me. In one sentence you complain about how the database is.... and on the very next you admit you don't do anything to help the situation...

In my opinion if you refuse to do anything to help the database you have no right to complain about it. After all it is a user created database.

If it is not in the database.... feel free to help out and put it in. After all that is the only thing that will solve the problem.

Seconded.  As someone who spends quite a lot of time entering profiles and cast/crew information, I find it frustrating when people complain that it's not what it used to be, then admit they don't contribute themselves.

Wow.  I wish I'd known that several years ago.  Still, it's good to know now.

Generally, when I create a profile, I tend to submit it one of the following two ways:

"New profile created.  Cover scanned.  Release date and price from [wherever I checked it], full cast and crew from credits.  All other details from cover."

or

"New profile created.  Existing [locality] profile [EAN] used as template.  All relevant local details taken from cover.  Cover scanned."

The rules changed a little time ago to request that the contribution notes were more detailed.  Basically, the more detail you give, the more likely your contribution is likely to be accepted.

Last time I had something similar I used this as the notes:

"All details taken from parent. Full cast and crew taken directly from on-screen credits.
NB - Profile uses same EAN as existing profile for parent (two films on one disc - profile submitted in accordance with the rules).
Cast/Crew from: Full cast and crew taken directly from on-screen credits."

It was accepted.  I find that the more detailed my notes are when I'm doing something out of the norm, the submission is more likely to be accepted.

My feeling is that Andy Serkis is quite frightening.  If he thought we were saying actors who are CGI reference points don't count as actors he would be very angry.  They therefore count as actors.  It's a valid credit.

Surely it depends on the series?

The new Dynasty is clearly not a continuation of the original, so it's not the same series, whereas Dallas clearly IS the same series.

The 2017 Twin Peaks wasn't a separate series - it was a direct follow-on, so it counts as the same series.  Same for The X-Files.  Jordan Peele's Twilight Zone is a new series, not a follow-on from the Serling original (or the '80s version, or the '90s, all of which are separate series).

The V remake is a different series to the original, so counts as separate, as does the most recent Battlestar Galactica.

I'd take it on a case-by-case basis.

Beast was a 2000-2001 UK sitcom (veterinarians, in case you were wondering) and Aaron Johnson is credited as Aaron Johnson.  His episode aired in 2001, and he looks around 11 or 12, which would fit.

I can't say I'm overly familiar with the actor, but trawling through IMDb photos of the Kick-Ass Aaron Johnson, they're the same person.

Are any of the credits different for the different cuts?  (Maybe actors had scenes deleted in one version and not another.)  If so, I'd say child profiles all the way, but if not then I'd say don't bother.

Just a suggestion, though; the rules don't seem to cover this one.

Should have posted this on the contributions board, not here.  Sorry!  Please delete.

I'm trying to add child profiles for title 096009027117, but the original submitter didn't include the disc ID and I don't have a Region A BD drive.

Do you have the disc, and if so, can you let me know what the disc ID is, please?  Thanks!

I'm sure I voted yes to your Universal Classic Monsters update.  (Just double-checked, and I don't own it - mine's the complete set, not the essential one.  But I would have voted yes.)

I'm not overly bothered about titles.  If I don't like what other people call them, I'll just amend the name locally and lock it.  Unless someone's going for a really stupid title (personally, I think the Edition field is utterly pointless and annoying anyway) I'll usually just vote yes because I can't be bothered checking which obscure rule is being violated or not.

That said, my priority here is cast information; if I find that's wrong it irritates the hell out of me, so I can appreciate why you'd feel the same way about titles if that's your thing.

I'd say without, but I wouldn't downvote someone retitling with a colon, because I can't think of a practical reason not to, other than Star Trek: Beyond being a silly title.

Yes, I'd be pissed if I were you too.

I'd also vote no to the contribution.  Which I did, because the title's on my wish list.
