I would consider these significantly better.

You should definitely resubmit them. I would even make a note that stating the screener made a mistake and point out this thread.

The "Collection Hints" are part of the Layout.

Under
View -> Save Layout...
you can either save everything or explicitly choose only "Custom Collection Hint Design".


On the same section, directly under "Save Layout", you can also "Lock Layout" so you don't accidentally lose your changes.

Seems like a simple one to me: If it's says Jamaica Unit - invalid. But if it says Jamaica Crew - valid. The 1st one is Unit crew, the second one is Location Crew.


Agree.

Ken specifically addressed the issues that can arise regarding titles here: http://www.invelos.com/Forums.aspx?task=viewtopic&topicID=667247&messageID=2082773

"One-off rulings on individual titles are a waste of time - there is always a new twist available to cast a slightly different shade of gray, and users cannot be expected to scour the forums on a title-by-title basis.  Similarly, refining and complicating the rules to satisfactorily contain each of these new variants is an exercise in futility.

Local databases can support an infinite variety of variants for title and other fields, and the local locks are available to make those changes permanent.  With this in mind, hopefully the supporters on both sides of this and other similar debates can agree that the direction of a decision here is less important that the fact of a decision.  Consistency for submission to the online is possible and what we should shoot for.  Agreement on how it "should be" is neither possible nor (thankfully) necessary.

We'll be implementing a global edit for contribution evaluator use.  This will allow us to make a decision on a particular range of titles and standardize them directly.  In this particular case, the titles will be Men in Black, Men in Black II and Men in Black III.  Details on the forthcoming implementation will be posted before we begin making any profile changes."

No. There are contribution rules in place and they must be followed. As the Martian pointed out, the rules tell us to use the title from the front cover, not the back cover. Period.


Although the rules tell us to use the front cover, they also detail instances in which we take this data from the back cover credit block, movie credits and invelos' Capitalization tool.

"Include possessives if the front cover includes them, and if they are verifiably part of the title. If quotes surround the title in the credit block (generally on the back cover), check whether the possessive is within the quotes."

"For titles which include periods, dashes, or other symbols, check the credit block on the back of the case if included. If not, check the film credits or opening sequence."

"English titles will be automatically capitalized by the contribution system per the Associated Press style title standard. Capitalization Tool."

I've also seen that the screeners make mistakes.

When the scans are better, or the data is correct, resubmit the contribution and alert the screeners that should have been approved and state why.

Does it say "Universal Television" anywhere in the credits?

If so, then that data would be entered.

If not, then "Universal", which is listed, should be used.

I have paid for a licence but find that I cannot contribute to the other forums. Thanks


It might be the payment hasn't gone through yet. Paid members have the invelos symbol next to their name and I don't see that symbol next to yours.

I would give it a few days and then if nothing changes I suggest you open a support ticket found here: http://invelos.com/Support.aspx

I thought about it, and I'm With Kathy and the 32 users Who voted with should not be capitalized:

The title is Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs on IMDb.


The post you are referring to is from 2014 - Ken has since clarified the matter with the Capitalization tool so the matter is settled as far as contributions are concerned.

Personally, my position hasn't changed so I keep the title field locked so that I have the "correct" capitalization locally.

Was your old name maybe "desertflower"? See link. Then it was November 30, 2004.


I have always used my first name - Katharine or Kathy.

The post sort of fits except I don't have any children.

No one is asking you to do anything like that. Just refrain from ticking the checkbox for submitting his birth year and all will be fine.


If I'm not mistaken sometimes there isn't a checkbox to tick. I think that is because the invalid BY had already been previously entered, and accepted, into the database.

I find it interesting that the majority of voters feel the Box Sets' genre field should, like most other data, be left blank.

I like this idea too. But, I dread the thought of going through my collection deleting this information from the Other Feature section - way too time consuming.
