I'm not clear about what we should do about sites that have a review of the film? Are we not supposed to link to these but only to sites which themselves link to reviews of the film?

I've deleted all my reviews now but I can see others that have been submitted which are just single reviews.

I made the same mistake, and went back and deleted all of mine. I agree though, I am seeing many single reviews still.

I'm confused again - according to this thread  it's ok to post to a single review if it is about the DVD (or blu-ray)?

I had single reviews of the dvd - and I thought all those had to be deleted?

Individual reviews of the film should not be linked.

Review aggregators of the film can be linked.

Individual reviews of the DVD/Blu-ray can be linked.

Ok, now that that's cleared up...

Ken, what about DVD Reviews of multiple releases and comparisons of each. Like DVD Beaver reviews. Can we add them to each single DVD release that is reviewed in the link?

I don't see why not, but note that links are identified for certain actions by user/url combination, so if you delete a link you've assigned to a profile it will delete all instances of that exact url that you have assigned to any profile.

that would actually be very useful if it was possible to edit the link (rather than having to delete and re-add).

Then if a link has been added to 5 profiles and needs to be changed if the website changes, then it would only be neccesary to change it once and it would ripple through to all of the profiles the link was on.

Good idea.  And be given the option to propogate it or not in the event you only want to change it for the profile in question.
Bad movie?  You're soaking in it!

But please remember to check "This Profile Only" (unfortunate that it's not the default option).

I've seen DVD specfic reviews attached to completely different releases, and even HD DVDs!

BTW; should these be submitted under General Info or Review Aggregators?

I'm still kind of confused as to what is a proper review link. I get the review to a dvd, but for a review of the film what would be a valid link for a review aggregator

I don't think it's that simple. I've been submitting single reviews under General Info, because it's not a link to an aggregator. If the radio button only said "Reviews" then yeah, naturally that's where they'd go. DVDFile.com isn't a review aggregator (unlike rottentomatoes.com or dvd-basen.dk) so it doesn't seem like it would fit under that category.

I'd rather have all reviews collected under one place though, so ifthe "Review Aggregator" radio button were to be renamed simply "Reviews" I think it would work better. Or perhaps Ken doesn't want it that way...

Ken?
