Because a parent profile is basically an empty box and all the information – except the packaging data (title, rating details, overview) – belongs to the child profiles, I think the profiles should be largely devoid of data, from video to audio to genres.

I think that the mentioned above is the only data that should be on a box set.
I am even reserved about including "rating details" in text for a whole set of movies among which that can differ. E.g. "Strong Language and Moderate Horror".
Also, I am reserved and were actually always against the rule to type in the production year for the oldest title in the set. (Why do that?) As well as country of origin, which definitely also can vary among the movies.
Production studios and genres should also be empty, for sure, along with any sort of Video Format data, just to rule out any confusion and to stay consistent, if anything.
In other words I think the rules for box sets need an update.

I agree that the rules need an update. At present, if there is a box set with an 18 certificate for (to use your example) "Strong Language and Moderate Horror", but the set contains a PG certificate comedy, the rules say that it must have the same rating as the parent. This would be patently absurd and the rules should be designed to reflect a situation like that.

I have submitted contributions (which have all been approved) where the overview on the parent profile has a paragraph or two for each film and I have put child profiles with only the corresponding section from the parent's overview. That makes sense to me and, seemingly, to the people responsible for screening the contributions.

Wouldn't it look a little silly to have a list of names and then a group divider saying "Special Performance by" followed by one name and then other cast members after the end divider?

I'm going to have to go with other on this one.

A special appearance by (say) Patrick Stewart doesn't mean he's playing himself.  Neither does it mean he's playing Picard. 

Quite a few actors appear in Curb Your Enthusiasm playing themselves (Ted Danson, for example), but others (like Steve Coogan) appear playing a specific character.  I think the credit is very specific to the character being played, and I don't think a single rule will cover everything.

This is very true. I'm thinking specifically of cases when an actor or celebrity makes a guest appearance as themselves, not a variation of themselves or obviously playing a specific role.

However, when looking at a show like Extras, someone like Kate Winslet is playing a version of Kate Winslet, but is still credited as 'Herself'.

If they appear in the film as themselves then Himself/Herself/Themselves, plus in this case a "Special Performance by" group divider.

If it's just one person, then it's not a group, so no group divider.

Agreed. A group divider would be unnecessary and messy in the credits.

In this case, it's just whether Common should be credited as Himself, Special Appearance by, or nothing. Currently, the profile doesn't have a role for him.

I've often seen (and contributed) these appearances with putting "Himself" or "Herself", (Curb Your Enthusiasm has many people credited as such) but wanted to see if there was a consensus. What you think the role should be for a credit like this, where the person has appeared as themselves?

Sometimes people guest star and are credited as 'Himself' or 'Herself' (like Brett Favre in There's Something about Mary or Chuck Norris in Dodgeball), and sometimes it just says 'Special Appearance by' or "Guest Appearance by'. In that instance, should the role field be blank or say 'Himself' or 'Herself'?

I've started using 4K Ultra HD (and Blu-ray) to match the media types in Filters.

That's what I have been doing for a while and why I think 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray make the most sense for the disc information slots. It is my interpretation that we describe in the format in those cases, and things like the episode numbers in others.

UHD or Ultra HD by themselves doesn't mean a thing without 4K in front of it. Once 8K hits the market harder it won't let you know which is which.

Keeping in mind, that physical disc will disapear

I hope that day never comes!

If the Easter Egg is a Commentary track, should we still list the audio even if it's left out of the Features? This is the case for Sizzle Beach USA (possibly an unintentional Easter Egg) where I discovered years ago that there was a Commentary track not listed on the case or menus. If you don't use your remote or software to change the audio, you won't find it. Right now it's not listed with the audio details but should it be?

I'd put the commentary in the Easter Egg section, describing how to access it, then put the commentary after the other audio tracks.

The rules state:

Quote:
Sets containing the same film on multiple media types (such as a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack) are to be entered as a normal profile for the main media type (Blu-ray in this example), with all included media types checked. A combo which includes HD media (HD-DVD, Blu-ray) as well as DVD should use the details from the HD media in the main profile. However, you may add an additional profile by Disc ID for the DVD content and add this profile to the Box Set contents for the Blu-ray profile.


From this, the wording is asking for "the main media type", so Blu-ray, not BD. That's why there's the phrase "contents for the Blu-ray profile". In that sense, it is logical to describe the discs as being DVD or Blu-ray. That would match the checkboxes on the General Information section of the profile.


This has absolutely no relevancy to the topic at hand and is discussing box sets and child profile.  What does this how do about listing a disc as BD or Blu-ray in the disc ID?

When you have a dual format release, the disc descriptions are the equivalent of the names of films in a box. I was just pointing out that the rules talk about the format of the disc, not the format with the suffix 'Disc' or its abbreviation.

I thought the idea was to identify the format, not the physical item. DVD refers to both, whereas Blu-ray refers to the format and Blu-ray Disc, or BD, to the shiny plastic disc.

I prefer #1 because Blu-ray seems to be the 'official' name used by the Blu-ray association over BD.

That's my thought process as well. We seem to be specifying the format, not the name of the disc, so we are saying 'Blu-ray' rather than an abbreviation of 'Blu-ray Disc'.

I like the idea of having one uniform description for the disc, so I will always go for Main Feature (Blu-ray) and would like every dual release in my collection to have the same.

I have seen these written in different ways in the disc description sections and wonder if there is a consensus opinion as to what people prefer and would like to be the semi-official wording.

I like the first one (4K Ultra HD) because most of these releases have the words "4K Ultra HD – Blu-ray" or "4K Ultra HD – Blu-ray – DVD" at the top of the box so that would fit with the findings in the poll about the Blu-ray format.

She is credited as Dina Waters in the pilot of Six Feet Under.

Episode 13@0:57:54
DINA WATERS  Tracy Montrose Blair

I did not check the other episodes neither. But the only profile listing Dina Spybey for this role is a very poorly maintained swiss profile, which seems to list the IMDb cast. Therefore I'd assume the Spybey entry for Six Feet Under as invalid.

I've checked all the other discs and she is always credited as Dina Waters playing Tracy Montrose Blair. The pilot episode is an oddity because they've given the role as 'Chatty Mourner' – it's only later that the character has a name.
