A large portion of my DVDs (and apparently for Addicted2DVD as well as of late ) are gifts that were given for my birthdays or during Christmas. I mark them as $0.00 paid and the giver's name as the place/retailer.

How about additional options to take gifts into account where price is eliminated as a factor and those giving the gifts are considered as a third 'retailer' group? It could look something like this:




This sort of feature would also benefit statistically where (as one of several examples) when looking at "Purchase Places" under the Chart & Graphs, you could select to eliminate from the equation all DVDs given as gifts.



(I can't believe I never thought about this before now.)
If at first you don't succeed, skydiving isn't for you.

He who MUST get the last word in on a pointless, endless argument doesn't win. It makes him the bigger jerk.

Even if I get not this much gifts as Pete I think it would be a nice feature.

Count me in too 

Currently I'm using a workaround (simply added "Gift" as a retailer).
It all seems so stupid, it makes me want to give up!
But why should I give up, when it all seems so stupid?

Same thing I am doing currently... I also add a note that says Gift from whoever in the notes section.

Since you don't post very often, I use this one to thank you for hosting the "Image from movies" site.

Sorry for being off topic

+1 from me, as well. I use the "gift" retailer but it would be nice for the price field to be eliminated for those profiles.

I don't often get DVDs as gifts, but I do have a few.  As a workaround I've created a retailer "Gift" and put the gift-giver in the notes, but I'd much prefer the method you outline.

And +1 for the suggestion.

I created a retailer called "Gift".  When I receive a DVD as a gift, I select that retailer, enter the price as $0, and put the gift giver's name in my notes.  It works well.
