It's bad form, irrespective of what the future holds here.  My Movies has their own website and forums.  These discussions back and forth with respects to migrating from DVD Profiler to My Movies can be discussed there.

Agreed.  It's rather predatory.

That might be but Ken only has himself to blame.

I've had a query in the support forum for over a year and I am still waiting.

The lack of active support or comments from the powers that be is unprofessional and I don't blame members from discussing invelos' demise and looking for another program.

That's what they said about vinyl.

The only thing I can think of is for you to do is:

First do a database repair.

Then try an Alternative Internet Connection: Tools > Options > Online > Tick Use Alternative Internet Connection box > Okay > download Covers.

There has always been these kind of issues. If there isn't a clear cut answer contribute the data, based on your understanding of the rules, and let the voters and screeners decide. I would post a link to this thread so that they can see what some of the community thinks.

Ken weighed in on the removal of Uncredited Cast here:

http://invelos.com/Forums.aspx?task=viewtopic&topicID=430575&PageNum=1

This thread does not concern uncredited cast. It concerns undocumented role names, which is something entirely different.


I posted the link that lists a bunch of Ken's statements - the one about Uncredited Cast is here:

I've just spent a lot of time looking for the threads that addressed this topic without success.

So, I went over the "rules" again carefully and the answer was there...and I was wrong.

"If an actor is credited by name but does not have an associated role, you may use the film itself, or another source to identify the role."

Please note it says "another source", singular, and NOT sources, plural.

The rule continues:

"However, mass copy from a third party commercial database which violates their stated usage license is not allowed. In each case, list Actor’s names and roles (when given) exactly as they are in the credits and in exactly the same order credited."

Therefore, as long as we do not violate copyright licenses, we do not need to use multiple sources to contribute uncredited roles.

There have been discussions about this topic before. I've tried to find the relevant threads but didn't have any luck.

GSyren, I might very well be wrong and mine is only one vote. If you think you are right please leave the contribution as is.

I only brought this to the forums to get further input since I seldom disagree with any of your contributions.

Are we allowed to use a single 3rd party source for data?

Edit: To clarify - I am ONLY talking about Cast and Roles. Thanks.

Topic Replies: 23, Topic Views: 2113
The way I've seen it done is:

Delete the Title and type SCREENERS REMOVE THIS PROFILE in the Title field. Document why the profile should be removed and then submit as you would any other contribution.

No I am not. ...

... how is the field named, where you link the child profiles to the parent?


Is feel obligated to answer your question.

First, I did not contribute this data, all I have done is vote on the contribution and subsequent additions/changes.

My initial query showed how the data was entered:

Title: Hellboy: Disc 1
Edition: Director's Cut
Media Types: DVD
Original Title:

There is now a contribution pending that wants to change this data to this:

Title: Hellboy: Disc 1
Edition: Director's Cut
Media Types: DVD
Original Title: Hellboy

The new contribution wants to add "Hellboy" to the Original Title field.

I have read the rules and I don't see where you can prove your point except under Box Set rules which does not apply so we will need to agree to disagree.

I will read any further comments and thoughts on this thread but I think it is a waste of time for me to continue to address the matter.

If you add children to a profile, you are in effect creating a box set. That is why this thread turns into a discussion about box set rules.

You are asking how to enter data into a profile that should not exist. There can be no answer to that.


No I am not. I have a single film that has 3 individual discs. Box Sets are a completely different - that is why invelos' has added a special section to the Rules to address that fact.

Are you saying that one should ignore the fact that there are 3 discs and only enter 1 and ignore the other 2?

I'm not sure how this thread turned to Box Set rules. That is totally off topic. My question only dealt with Original Title data.

Please start another thread for any other issues because it gets confusing when we start discussing other data and rules that cover that off topic data. Thank you.

GSyren - did you download the movie to see what I was talking about?

This film has 3 DVDs, each in their own individual cover. Are you telling me that we do not enter these?

I went through the rules twice and don't see any that supports your view. Please show me the rules that supports your viewpoint.

For a non-boxset release the only time we add a child profile is if it is a combo, or if it has a bonus feature. We do not add child profiles for other discs.

This may not be specifically stated in the rules, but when you add discs to a profile, the first disc you add automatically gets labeled "Main Feature", subsequent discs get labeled "Bonus Materials". This clearly implies that bonus material discs belong to the main (and only) profile.

So your question is moot.


Here is the UPC I am discussing: 043396074095. Please download it to see what I am talking about.

It is entered as you say for the main profile. But, when you put the individual discs in the get entered by the Disc Id. In this case there are 3 Discs entered.

I have thousands and thousands of profiles that have been entered this way and have no idea why you would think my query is "moot".

So the question is, is there anywhere in the rules that forbid adding bonus discs for one film?
And if not, then I guess one could add the bonus disc for any single film release.


This is off topic because I am not discussing a Box Set.

I think I did not explain the situation clearly and I'm not sure I can now.

Basically all I want to know is: Do we add Original Title field for a film that has multiple discs? Where in the rules does it say this is correct?

Title: Hellboy: Disc 1
Edition: Director's Cut
Media Types: DVD
Original Title: Hellboy

The Title of the film is Hellboy. That is the Original Title of the film so, imho, adding Hellboy to the Original Title field violates the rules: "In cases where the title is the original title, leave the Original Title field blank."

Indeed, there shouldn't be child profiles for these discs. Quoting the contribution rules:
Quote:
If a Box Set contains discs of Bonus Material for individual films, do not create separate profiles for these discs.


Except it is NOT a Box Set, it is a single film.

In my opinion the title "Hellboy: Disc 1" for a child profile is wrong. Whats on the cover?

.
Hellboy

I don't understand why, when addressing Child Profiles Disc 1,  Disc 2 etc, you would add Original Title. The Title of the film is Hellboy.

Per rules: "In cases where the title is the original title, leave the Original Title field blank."

This has been discussed before but I could not find the thread.

Someone is changing the Title data for a child profile for from:

Title: Hellboy: Disc 1
Edition: Director's Cut
Media Types: DVD
Original Title:  >

Title: Hellboy: Disc 1
Edition: Director's Cut
Media Types: DVD
Original Title: Hellboy

My understanding is we do not use Original Title field for Child Disc Profiles.

Thoughts?

Hi,

As the originator I considered the D-Box support info as useful for D-Box owners as well as those considering such a system.

Markus


When one needs to purchase a "system", then the data does not get contributed.

The rules state: "The authoritative source for information submitted should be the DVD itself.  Please don't submit content from a third party database, and always verify the specifications printed on the cover."

Since the data you are contributing does NOT come from the DVD or the cover, per rules, it can NOT be contributed.

If the data is important to you, tick the D-Box and lock the Features section so it will not be overridden. But, that data should not be contributed.
