Since the online copy of my db is not complete and its only purpose I can see is to allow one to vote on contributions or for others to peruse, I could care less. If I ever have rely on it as a backup, I would just giver up ever trying get the damn thing squared away and consistent. Every time I look at my db I find something wrong. Some entry I started on and got side tracked.

I thought the sort title was a personal thing, I would definitely not rely on some stuff I've seen in there.

Another mess is that it uses Title instead (or optionally) Original Title. My sort titles are based on Original Title and that makes web page sorting a total mess.

Actually, it uses 'Sort Title'.  If you look at my collection, you will notice that I have all my Family Guy, Futurama and Simpsons profiles listed at the end.  That's because, prior to us getting custom categories, I used to have my profiles sorted by type...Film at the top, TV at the bottom.  I accomplished this by adding 'Zzz' to the beginning of the Sort Title.  These are left over from that period.

That's what I meant. Locally I use Original Titles. Therefore my Sort Titles are also based on Original Title. Online collection only shows Title, so sorting them alphabetically gets weird results. For example:

Title: Urhea
Original Title: Brave
Sort: Brave

Guess where it is in my online collection, in the middle of B  See my online collection. It's a mess.

These issues is why I use my own HTML generated online collection.

Regarding the original title issue: I find it a big problem, that DVD Profiler doesn't offer a separate sort title of the original title.

I'm really missing the personal collections, and not just the three defaults. Eg. I have one for Disney movies, but I can't see any of them online.
