Thanks. I heated my chocolate in a bath of warm "Oat Milk Creamer" and stirred as it was melting. In my experience, heating up 90% cocoa dark chocolate alone doesn't work, as it has very little liquid content. It doesn't even melt well in a microwave, due to the low water content. Not quite the same as heating up "milk chocolate."


Good to know! I usually do use milk chocolate when I work with chocolate. I've had 90% but not very often.

I took some of my 90% dark chocolate bars (tough to eat raw) and broke them into large chunks. After heating in a saucepan, some "Oat Milk Creamer," I added the chocolate chunks and regulated the heat so that I got smooth melting without boiling. Then I added some sugar, a pinch of salt and some cinnamon.


Just as a suggestion, when heating your chocolate, you may want to try a double boiler method. You boil water in a saucepan, once it's boiling, you put your (metal works best) bowl or another saucepan on top of that one. Make sure the water doesn't touch the bottom of the top bowl. Makes it a lot easier to melt the chocolate without scorching! Or, for even easier, use the microwave. Put in for 30 secs, take out stir for several seconds, put in for 10 sec bursts stirring after each until it's fully melted. Just make sure you're stirring a lot because chocolate will heat a bit oddly and keep heating after being taken out of the microwave and you might not have to heat it as much as you'd think you would.

Since you don't need to harden the chocolate after melting, no need to temper/worry about the temperature for either method!

Hope this helps!

Unfortunately, like others have said, one usually only receives a standard response. But...it should give you a bit of a hint why it was declined. Many times there wasn't something credited (perhaps where you got the cast/crew, for example) or perhaps you used and credited an option that isn't allowed like IMDb.com.

Other times, it could just be an accident and if you feel like your contribution has met the guidelines, re-submit. Make sure you've said where you've sourced the information you're submitting. If the rejection notice says something you disagree with, mention your argument for why it's correct. This should all help.

I still buy them occasionally. A lot of films and TV shows are only released once on DVD. I do prefer buying combo packs with both in, that way it's the best of both worlds. I can lend out the DVD and still have the better copy. Or sometimes all we have to use is a DVD player, like on a car trip.

Or, it's a film I haven't seen before and it's super cheap. Figure it's like renting, except I get to keep the disc. Plus, if I hate it, I don't feel bad about donating it.

Monty Python added some interesting ones. "Sir Not-Appearing-in-this-Film" for one. I know they have crew members that are llamas.

I have others, but don't remember them off hand.

If you don't want to do two accounts, you could add your wife's movies manually, not using a UPC code or disc id. You'd have to start from scratch, but if you already own the film, just copy and paste the information to the manual profile. Then use tags to easily find them (or you could create her own category and put those manual profiles into that category.)

Just as a head's up, those manual profiles would not be eligible for contribution and would be separate from the original so would not receive updates.

Have you tried a custom backup where you're not backing up everything and seeing if that goes through? Maybe try it without plugins or custom photos/gallery photos?

Sorry, that's my only suggestion if the database repair isn't working. Maybe someone else with more knowledge of the database will have a better one...

I think the difficulty with determining what is considered "Adult" for Profile lies in the fact that the company is American but has an international audience. Americans are, in general, prudes. I could bore you with historical evidence, but for whatever reason, nudity is a big no-no even without sex. Though women are more allowed to show full nudity then men are but that's another conversation.

I think Profiler errs on the side of caution to have profiles marked as Adult to avoid any issues that would arise from someone getting upset at seeing nudity even if for the majority of the world, it's not a big deal. I can't really blame Ken for it, as a small company would totally be bankrupted if sued.


Regardless, though it definitely further points to Adult movies having other genres. Heck, even if a movie is an hardcore parody of a superhero movie, I don't see any issue with Comedy and Fantasy being secondary genres.

I agree. I don't see why there can't be other genres if Adult is listed.

Some Adult movies are even documentaries, such as In the Flesh, a documentary about strippers (interviews intercut with stripping). No sex happens, but it has an Adult listing as most Seduction Cinema output does. Part of the problem is that Adult is such a subjective term. While some Something Weird output would indeed count as Adult in my mind, the 1950s/1960s nudie ones where no sex occurs aren't Adult in my mind but generally are by DVD Profiler standards.
