Other than processing contributions for the central Invelos database, very little seems to be going on.

Let me join the choir as well: no valid credits.

Agree with Gunnar. Nothing against copying, but only if it serves as a starting point only, to be followed by verification against the actual credits.

Very simple: the Contribution Rules tell us to take cast and crew information from the film credits. Only role names, if missing in the film credits, can be taken from elsewhere.

In your case, the intermediate profile level is UPC/EAN-based, in the OP’s case it is Disc ID-based. Per the rules, the former type of profile is allowed, the latter is not.

Please take a look at the examples at the bottom of this page:
http://www.invelos.com/dvdpro/contributions/Rules.aspx?display=altversions.

Your case is similar to the second example, the OP’s case is similar to the last one.

That’s a different kind of animal, indeed. Agree with Andy.

Quoting Corne:
Quote:
What about extra features? In general, should all the extra features be added to each alternate id? Even if they are connected to the other movie? What about extra features not connected to any movie? I'm a little bit confused.

Each DVD is a parent profile in its own containing 3 films that happens to be on the same disc and on the same side. That's where the alternate disc ids are for. It is the same as grand box sets containing multiple box sets. In that case the smaller box sets are added as child profiles containing child profiles for the discs with the movies. This is not different?


I think you're wrong here.

The Alternate Versions section of the rules mentions the following as one of the applications of the alternate versions feature:

"More than one film on the same side of a single disc (including Bonus Feature Films)
Use for: Different films on the same side of a single disc.
Do not use for: Different cuts of the same film
The first added entry uses the base Disc ID, and subsequent additions use the next available alternate version."

The way I understand the rules (as explained in my earlier posts in this thread) there is not to be a disc-level parent profile by Disc ID, and all individual movie profiles should be connected directly as child profiles to the profile of what you're calling a "grand box set".

This, in turn, also explains why the Box Sets section of the rules contains this:

"In addition to the above, the following are not included on the box set profile: Subtitles, Audio & Disc Features. List them with the individual profiles."

Features should therefore be listed with the child profile of the individual movie they belong to.
Extra features not connected to any movie might well be very rare in these types of sets, but if they do occur, I would think they should be listed in the parent profile.

It says “one profile per movie”, not “a disc-level profile snd one profile per movie”. Crystal clear, I would think.

You  are right. Just look at this page of the Contribution Rules, the examples at the bottom, and, moreover, in the Box Sets section of the Contribution Rules where it says

"Discs with more than one movie on a single side should be entered as one profile per movie. Use a disc ID profile, and as many disc ID alternate profiles as required."

I would like to see the user you are having the disagreement with explain how his stance does not violate the latter sentence.

Don't worry about it, Wolfgang! We're all human, and you've worked it out pretty quickly!

AFAIK the Edition field serves two purposes:
- distinguishing various editions of the same movie from each other;
- listing collection names.

"Two-Disc Ultimate Edition" sounds like an example of the first purpose, while "Dragon Dynasty" (without the number) sounds like a collection name.
So I'd say that both are allowed in the Edition field, and the number 21 has to go.

Isn't it true that these "in association with ...." credits are usually referring to a company or organization which is providing funding but is not involved in the actual production work?

Topic Replies: 27, Topic Views: 1761
Production companies only, so in your example UK is the sole CoO.

Usually if you get this as a reason for a contribution decline, it means you have copied the cast and crew information from a third-party database, which is not allowed for copyright reasons.

I can't say that until now I have had much trouble distinguishing cases where it is a suffix and cases where it is not. But of course your mileage may vary, and please feel free to create such a thread!

Yes, then that's what I would enter in the Title field.

So except possible bug fixes, TmdbTvShowCheck 1.7 will probably be the final version.


Hmmmm, I don't think you ever really do final versions, Gunnar!

I have to agree with ObiKen. "Corporation" or "Company" MAY be a company suffix, but not necessarily so. If there is a suffix like Inc., Ltd, Plc., GmbH etc. following Corporation or Company, then I would consider Inc. etc. to be the suffix which should not be included and Corporation or Company as part of the company name which SHOULD be entered. No one would consider these NOT to be part of the names of BBC and ABC, respectively.

What you enter depends on the locality in which your purchase was released.

If it's a US release, enter the title in Roman alphabet from the front cover in the Title field and use the Original Title field to enter a transcription of the oriental-language title.

If it's an oriental release, enter a transcription of the oriental title in the Title field.

I'm aware that there may be different transcriptions of titles in non-Roman alphabets. There aren't any fixed rules on which to use. I'd suggest using the most popular transcription method, if there is one.
