Ok thanks, but then who votes/approves on sent in profiles? Is there a special user group?

Nobody votes on initial profile contributions.  They are approved, or declined, by someone at invelos without input from the userbase.

I picked option #2 because the second disc doesn't contain both features and the official Queen website lists the Live Aide Rehearsal as bonus material.

Well it seems that the elusive Zombie is alive and well.  The fact that he replaced the servers seems to indicate that the database will be around for the foreseeable future, so that's good.

I think that Ken intended for standard rules to apply. I think we should apply standard rules. That said, I don't think that the rules make that clear. Let me explain:

If the box set cover contains a listing of contents with brief descriptions of each, enter it directly into the Overview field.

Now, if standard rules do indeed apply, then this sentence is superfluous. Such a listing should have been used for the overview anyway. So the inclusion of this sentence seems to imply that standard rules do not apply. It may not make much sense, but then again it's not the only thing in the rules that doesn't make sense.

If I remember correctly, the argument that lead to this addition to the rules was that "a listing of contents'" was not an overview.  This was especially true if the box set had an overview as well as a listing of contents.  While I agree that it was an unnecessary addition, it was the only way to silence the naysayers and ensure that we could add them...which is what most of us wanted.

The box set overview rule is an addendum to the standard rule for overviews (re: "The following Clarifications to the standard Rules need to be used:"). The first sentence is not superfluous because the standard rule only covered a simple listing of the collection contents.

The correct process is use the overview from the cover (standard rule), followed by, if applicable, the box set rule.

The end result is what Danae Cassandra described.

It's been a while but I seem to remember that this is correct.  These rules were written not as a replacement, but as an addendum...meaning, follow the normal rules as well as these rules.  If I remember correctly, they were added specifically to allow the additional items because they were not allowed by the regular rules.

Thanks greyghost.  Clearly I missed that line.  Since they are not required...may be included...and seem to be a huge pain, I wouldn't enter them myself.  I already don't so no big change for me.

I do wonder, how many people are actually contributing them?

I could be wrong here but I don't know that these are even allowed if you follow a strict reading of the rules.  We are supposed to take the actor information from the end credits only.  Based on the description given, these are not listed in the end credits.  In addition, the only voice roles mentioned are for animated features or 'voice only roles' but, again, they must come from the end credits only.  There is no mention of listing the people used for dubbing in to another language.

And I don't believe this is a German only issue.  More and more, I am seeing these extra localized language screens in TV series.  Some have multiple screens with multiple different locations...5, 6, 7 or more.  This data has little interest to me so I would never enter them and, like nimbuz, would delete them if they were included in a profile that I downloaded.
