I don't think "Thanks to" qualifies as an acting credit.

But "Background Artiste" should.

---------------

Except that 'Background Artiste' doesn't automatically translate into 'Background Actor'.  When I read it, my immediate thought was that they were artists that worked on the background set pieces.

That being said, I did a little research, and it seems that these people were, in fact, extras that played ladies who were on strike...hence the term 'strikers'.  I have changed my vote accordingly.

Normally we always profile the longer cut.

Actually, the rules don't tell us to do that, so we shouldn't be.  We should profile the version 'as it is sold'. 

If I have a set that 'includes the director's cut', I profile the theatrical version.  The rule only applies to the run time, not the entire profile.

I voted 'no' because of the "are something like that."  To me, that sounded like you weren't sure whether or not they are actually extras.

This doesn't sound like it is the same character to me.  One was killed, and a different one "claims" to be the first.  In my opinion, two different characters, so two different credits.

If I read your post correctly, the only 'per the rules option' is to create a profile for each disc via diskID and add those as box set contents to the complete series parent.

I agree with Wigram.  The quality must be significantly higher, not just a slight improvement.  Also, because image quality is subjective, what you think is good may not be the same as what the screeners see as good.

So, it's now also allowed as a separate profile? Personally, since I don't download child profiles unless it's an actual bonus film in a box set it doesn't make a huge difference, but I always thought it was odd that these were submitted (and subsequently approved).

Please forgive me if my reply wasn't clear.  You said, "I always thought this kind of thing was covered in the features section as a featurette..."

My reply was meant to indicate that, yes, it is covered in the features section as a featurette.  They do not receive their own profile.

Other question....as Vol.1 is a Single Slim case with different ean, should that be added as Boxset content as it is always in it or should i leave that out too?

I try to, as much as the rules allow, profile the set as it is sold.  In this case, I would create a profile for the outer box and add the single slim as a child under Box Set Contents.

Per the rules, the answer is no.

DaMikstar hit the nail squarely on the head.  The key phrase is "to be entered as a normal profile".  As he indicated, normal profiles list all the features regardless of where they are located in the set.

My Lord of the Rings collection has 4 discs for each film.  Two of those discs contain only special features.  All those features are listed in the main profile for the film and nowhere, but on the cover, does it tell me where those features are located.

Why we would do it any differently for combo sets is beyond me.

Unless it was sold as a complete box set, I would not create one for the 'bonus' case as it would be misleading.

Is this the corrected method, or should each disc contained within the set be entered via the disc id method?

It makes perfectly sense to enter the seasons individually with the disc ID when they are packaged in individual cases, like different movies in a boxset, but unfortunately this is not covered by the rules.

It makes perfect sense to you, however, it does not make perfect sense to everybody.

It is just logical. But logic is not for everyone.

No, it is not 'just logical', as other people feel it is 'just logical' that the disc ID belongs to the disc and not the case.

What is or isn't 'just logical', depends on your personal preference...which, if I remember correctly, is why Ken attempted to clarify this in the rules.

Exactly. It actually even *was* covered by the rules, but that rule was later changed - that explains why there are still a lot of these in the database.

I'm sorry, but this simply isn't true...or at the very least, is a little misleading.

TV Series Child Profiles were added to the rules in 2007.  Prior to that, they weren't allowed.  What was allowed, was treating complete series sets like movie box sets.  As with normal movie box sets, if the individual season didn't have a UPC, the disc ID was used to create the parent.  This was not spelled out in the TV Series rules, it was just common practice.

The minute child profiles were added to the rules, Ken made his statement that "disc-level profiles should have content only from that disc."

Not allowing disc level profiles, from the very beginning, is the real reason there are still a lot of disc ID based parent profiles in the database.

So, this will all depend on how one reads the rule:
Quote:
Sets containing the same film on multiple media types (such as a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack) are to be entered as a normal profile for the main media type (Blu-ray in this example), with all included media types checked. A combo which includes HD media (HD-DVD, Blu-ray) as well as DVD should use the details from the HD media in the main profile. However, you may add an additional profile by Disc ID for the DVD content and add this profile to the Box Set contents for the Blu-ray profile.

Based on that rule, I ask my self one question...does this set contain the same film on multiple media types?  If the answer is yes, I enter it as a normal profile for the main media type.  That means I list all of the special features, even if they are on a separate disc.

While not specifically mentioned, I would treat it the same way I would a BD/DVD combo...place all the information in the 4K parent profile as the child profile is optional.

I guess the question that has to be asked is, "What are you trying to capture?  Data that's easy to enter or data that is correct?"

If it is the former then, yea, eliminate everything with the word 'unit' included and be done with it.  But, as mreeder50 points out, you will be eliminating anything labeled 'Main Unit' or '1st Unit', which makes no sense.

If it is the latter then. I'm sorry to say, you might have to do a little work and, on occasion, make an educated guess.

For the record, I think the second option is the better choice, but I honestly don't care about crew credits...I think they are a huge waste of time...so feel free to ignore me.

It's just easier to link to one of my older posts on this topic.

Note, that is just my opinion based on research I have done.  Some people disagree.

From my point of view, location crews are not unit crews and therefore valid. But this is still not clarified in the rules - neither this nor the other way.

Agree with this.

10 years later, no way that I am aware of as the disc ID belongs to the child profile and I don't think this qualifies as an alternate disc ID profile.

I am going to disagree with you and say that the rules are absolutely clear on this.

For individual film releases the rule is:
Quote:
For DVDs with more than one rating shown (e.g. a DVD which includes an R and Unrated version), use the highest applicable rating with the following scale...

That rule does NOT apply to Box Sets.  We know this because, in the introduction, the rules say that "there are two special cases where the rules need clarifications.  Where you see the icons shown below, refer to the special instructions at the end of this document. These are titled Movie Box sets and TV Series on DVD."

Based on that, for Box Sets, we must refer to the Box Set special instructions:
Quote:
If the Box Set has a rating, use it in the profile. If it does not, use NR as the rating. Exception: If any disc in the set is rated Adult, list the set as Adult

So, based on that rule, the only time a Box Set gets a rating, other than NR, is if the set itself has a rating OR if one of the films is rated Adult.

Again, it seems pretty clear to me.

I think one factor for a Musical is, that he songs are plot related, almost replacing dialog for 5 minutes. So, things like Blues Brothers are not Musical (although Music could be argued here) and neither is Dirty Dancing (to my knowledge, I have never seen it).

So, if it was me, I would classify as follows:

Dirty Dancing neither
Moulin Rouge! Musical
Walk the Line maybe Music, nit Musical
The Blues Brothers not Musical, but maybe Music
Blues Brothers 2000 not Musical, but maybe Music
Ray Music
The Blues Brothers Double Feature not Musical, but maybe Music
American Dreamz don't know about this one
A Mighty Wind don't know about this one
Footloose neither
The Wedding Singer neither (just a guy singing at weddings doesn't make a Musical)
Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit: don't know about this one

I agree with all of this, though I will add that Sister Act 2 is similar to The Wedding Singer.  The movie is about a choir and the singing is them performing, not replacing dialogue.
