This is not something that should be changed it's based on a user vote (many of which were done years ago) where 39 people voted one and 22 voted another.  Out of the many, many Invelos users. I'm pretty sure that a small number of user votes doesn't necessitate a change.  Hardly something that warrants many new contributions where if it really bothers someone that much they can get change it locally.  Soon people will just be throwing up random polls for any small change and if it passes they'll just quote the poll in the contributions.

I don't really care which, but ...

Is it really that important that it's necessary to contribute updates that only change the description?


No it's not.  Changes can be made locally.

When a movie does not have end credits, there is sometimes a small problem.

If the opening credits have cast names in two columns, what is the best way to list them; across and down (the two names in the first row, the two in the second row, etc.) or down and across (first column first, then the second column)?

I see both variants in existing credits, and I accept them as they are. But on a few occasions I have had to enter the credits from scratch, and I just wonder which is the more acceptable method. Or maybe nobody cares?


This is a very common occurrence with songs listed in a movie as well.

This was a feature added somewhat recently but not covered in the Contribution Rules.

My question is what would you apply it to?  I've usually seen it in a TV show or something with multiple shorts, or something similar.

But would you apply it to features?  I saw a contribution with it listed because of a Play All for featurettes.  Would this count as well?

I'm sorry, but I just had to comment on the fact that of all the things that Christopher Plummer has done, you chose to mention an episode of The Cosby Show.

I have noticed that several combo packs in the collection, that the child profiles for the different format has a different UPC# than the parent.

So the question is, do we create an alternate profile for the child profile and update the cover of the child to match the parent profile when the only difference is the UPC#?


I don't know, I thought it was pretty clear to create an alternate profile.

I had contributed the uncredited roles for Martin Scorsese and his parents in The Age of Innocence for the Criterion Blu-ray edition.  I had 11 yes votes, 0 no votes, and had documented uncredited roles ID'd by sight.  The contribution was declined.  Does anyone have any idea why, or how I can find out why?  It doesn't make any sense to me.

Almost every film out there has multiple audio tracks and we list them in the order found on the disc. So what are we talking about here? I seem to be missing something.


The films I'm talking about don't have multiple audio tracks.  They have a single audio track in multiple languages.  The Cakemaker, which is the example I'm referencing here, is in 3 - Hebrew, German and English (5.1 DTS-HD MA, if you're curious).  It's not the only one in my collection like this.


I still don't understand this.  If you look at the display/info/etc., what does it say for the language?  I would just use that.  Am I missing something because I feel like I am?

I have no problem with copying cast/crew from other profiles. However I do check the changes and if correct cast/crew, common names or birth years are removed I vote no.


That is great that you do that, but it should be the responsibility of the person contributing to verify these things, not the person voting.  You shouldn't have to do the research.  Again, lazy contributing IMHO.

I don't like it when cast and crew is copied from one profile to another. When it comes to new profiles I accept it, even though I would prefer that the contributor actually checked the credits.

Recently I have seen a bunch of contributions that replace existing cast and crew with cast and crew from another profile. It seems to be primarily in order to introduce group dividers into the crew. While I dislike crew group dividers, I accept them.

However, at the same time these contributions often make other changes, like changing or removing crew credits, changing or adding common names. All this is done without any explanation, and that bothers me. I'm sure this is done in good faith, but the fact that the new data has group dividers does not guarantee that it is more correct than the old data in other aspects.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?


I agree with this, especially when there are no notes.  Who's to say which profile is correct without some verification?  To me it's just lazy contributing; there should be documentation on the changes being made.
