Since the guideline "Do not link to individual movie reviews, only review aggregators such as RottenTomatoes. Individual reviews of the media (DVD, Blu-ray) are OK." mentiones both sites with multiple movie reviews and sites with single DVD reviews in one sentence, I think it's quite clear they should be both assigned to the same section named "Reviews". Besides, once the section contains more than one review it becomes an aggregator in itself.

That's some good points. In which case I think the radio button should simply be renamed to avoid confusion.

Single film reviews should not be submitted in any category.  Single DVD reviews can go under 'Reviews'.

This is designed to keep things manageable - there are already several excellent review aggregator sites such as RottenTomatoes.  A single link to RT can and should replace many individual review links.

Yup, we get all that.

What I'm getting at is that right now the radio button for reviews is called "Review Aggegates" not just simply "reviews" which makes it seem like only aggregate sites like rottentomatoes.com should go there, and not individual DVD reviews.

You are trying to hard, amigo. It actually says Reviews/Aggregator, two different things from the way you are presenting it. It means precisely what Ken has edecribed.

Well, the heading says Reviews but the submission screen says Review Aggregator (without the slash).

But I've changed my disc reviews accordingly, they now go under Reviews, not General Info.

I missed one spot when renaming from Review Aggregator to Reviews.  The policy remains the same.

it works fine if you remove the www.invelos.com which gets stuck on the front when you click on it.

if you quote my text you see i did not stick http://www.invelos.com in front of it? verry strange?
What I mean is that the link to the movie review query engine should not be in the profile link to the dvd: the legend of zoro

The www.invelos.com got inserted because there was no http:// in front of the link - so it assumed that the link from this site needs to be inserted in front.

I think what you are saying is that we shouldn't have a link to reviews of the movie? But this is a link to a site which provides a number of reviews for this film - and I think that is allowed.

It is links to a single film review which is not allowed.

Well i think in that case you could also include links to other search engines and I think that is not the idea to have those in with a profile.
