Unfortunately, bad disc case designs far outnumber the good ones.

What do you guys think?

The current interface is highly customizable.

But as to what you've presented, I personally don't like the flat look of the icons or the idea of round images for headshots.

Here is the first sentence of the rule pertaining to Overviews:
Quote:
Copy the overview from the back of the DVD case exactly as written, including capitalization of words exactly as shown on the back of the case.

The case type for this is a Digipak (which is housed in a slip cover), which you show above.

An argument can be made to remove bold from the overview, but not for changing the capitalization (IMO).

I believe that once an episode list has been accepted that conforms to the rules (which the current one appears to do) that arbitrary changes should be rejected.

I don't think you can turn off the main menu.  I believe you can just move it around.

Hi. Can anyone tell me why the movie "A Mighty Heart" does not get inserted into the proper place alphabetically? It shows up under M not A.

That's what it should do.

Quote:
Also, I understand why "The" in movie titles is filtered out, but where can I control this behaviour for movies for which the word "the" is necessary for the title to make sense?

Your profiles have a Sort Order field and you can use this to sort things any way you want.

I create manual profiles of my few remaining VHS tapes, of my TV recordings I put on my Plex server, and many entries in my Wish List.

Do not list actors and crew who appear only in special features, or whose scenes were deleted from the main feature, even if they appear in special features.


It appears that this is confusing, as some think it means that if an actor's scenes were deleted from the film/tv series then we can also not include them in the profile itself.

Some may think it means that because that's exactly what it says.

No.

We don't list stunt personel.

Why?  If we can document uncredited extras I don't know why we should specifically have to exclude stunt people seen onscreen.

Yet if I was to do a cast profile with episode dividers and by the rules include the Special Guests as credited it would be impossible to know exactly what episodes they actually do appear in. Each would be listed in ALL of the episodes. So if I wanted to know exactly what episode Penn & Teller were in I would have to get the discs out and scan through each episode just to find out which one they actually appeared in.

I'm not exactly sure that all credited actors need be included in our cast listings.  Take a look at this excerpt from The Rules:
Quote:
Do not list actors and crew who appear only in special features, or whose scenes were deleted from the main feature, even if they appear in special features.

One might use this to deduce that actors, credited or not, who do not appear in the film/episode, should not be listed in our submissions.

However, my preference would be to have a "Credit Only" checkbox and leave them in.

I would make it dependent on whether Selwyn and Newless are the same person or not.

Yes. 

One entry if it's a single role but using two names, and two entries if it's two roles being played.

I'll be the voice of dissent here; I dont think they are significantly better.

I believe they are significantly better (the compression artifacts in the reds on the existing covers are horrible), and that the lack of any "yes" votes has been the problem.  It almost makes me wonder if the approval system is using automation here rather than eyes on the images.

Mine are just mixed in with everything else, but if I did want to identify "holiday" movies I'd probably use either TAGS or CUSTOM GENRES.

IMO, location crew should be included if they work directly with The Director of the picture.  Unit crew are usually filming scenes without the direct supervision of The Director.
