No, this does not warrant an alternate version since the covers are the same.

The existing cover scan was of the Criterion DVD which looks pretty similar at first glance but is clearly different if you look more carefully.


Yep, clearly not the Criterion Blu-ray cover nor does the proportions match up.

The news stations are reporting nine deaths so far, including two children, and ~1M still without power.  I've seen reports that as many as 2.1M were originally affected.

It seems they were affected by the power outage that resulted from the storm system that hit Virginia.  It's good to see the power is back on and hopefully the Coles' weathered the storm OK.

Gotta tell Bill to start adding UPCs to his releases. I don't have any of these otherwise I would add them.

Just curious, but why do your tabs look different than the normal tabs?


That's what the tabs look like when you select "Text Only" rather than "Icons Only" or "Icons and Text".


That's odd as mine don't look that way and are rectangular when the Text Only option is selected.  The image also shows text and images.

There could be an issue with one or more profiles.  You could test by trying to continuously split the affected collection section in half.

i.e.

9500-9749 (bad)
9750-9999 (good)

9500-9624 (good)
9625-9748 (bad)

etc.

Pearl Harbor was contributed by a notorious IMDB-copier. I wouldn't trust any of that person's contributions.


She's credited as Christine Beveridge in Pearl Harbor.

The original front cover has compression artifacts along with vertical yellow stripes.  The new scans are clearly "significantly" better.

EDIT:  You'll have to resubmit since new contributions have most likely been processed since your last contribution.  Next time, you can open a support ticket and Invelos can review if the contributions haven't been rolled into the next online update.  Once they've been rolled in then they don't seem to have access to review the contribution rulings.

You can use a third party image hosting site to post higher quality images for comparison such as imgur.com.  Or you can post a direct link to those sites for review.

I disagree with the "significantly higher" theory, and I have my own speculations, but I've seen many image contributions be approved that I wouldn't classify as being "significantly higher", but were improvements none the less.

It seems like not much has changed from two years ago when it comes to approval timelines and the net result hasn't lead to these being approved consistently more quickly.  Have the number of contributions increased that much?

As Addicted2DVD stated, submitting the original release date is correct.  The date of the price drop shouldn't have been approved; do you know if that contribution received a majority of yes votes?

Are the two releases vastly different; I was under the impression the only difference was the price drop and the date of said price drop?  Unless something has changed I don't recall a price drop being reason for an alternate version.

Alternate versions are supposed to be for releases of the same title with largely different cover images or with significantly different content.

According to Blu-ray.com this is a Walmart.com exclusive.  Per Walmart, this was released on 4/29/2013.

The version of Black Hawk Down that I have has a UPC of 043396150232.  I preordered this version which has a 1/16/2007 release date.  Not sure about the set with a UPC of 043396426696, but I'm guessing the release date is much later given the much higher numbering of the UPC.

Edit:  According to pictures, the back cover has a (c) of 2013 for the design and layout which means this was released in 2013 (most likely).

... and 13digit ISBN use the EAN checksum algorithm. So, what is the difference between an EAN and in 13-digit-ISBN? - The dashes!

It is really cute how afraid of any European thing the Americans seem to be...


No one is afraid of Europeans or any European things.  The UPC, EAN, and ISBN all fall under the GTIN format.

I used the above to discover there's no UPC, but there is the EAN.  I didn't know about yours at the time, but will check it out when I get home.


Going by the English/German/French/Italian subtitles, I assume that this is a producted originally marketed to Europe which is now also available in the US. But since it does not originate in the US -> no UPC.


Incorrect, this is a US produced release.

- adding a leading 978 in front of a 10 digit ISBN makes it a valid EAN code either


That is technically not true.

The ISBN (International Standard Book Number) consists of 9 digits and a checksum. The EAN (European Article Number) consists of 12 numbers and a checksum. However, the way these checksums are calculated is completely different.

Also the range of values is different. The EAN checksum will be a digit between 0 and 9. The ISBN digit will be a digit between 0 and 9 or an X, for example 345319652-X

Examples of ISBNs and EANs:

EAN: 978-345318768-9 ISBN: 345318768-7
EAN: 978-345319652-0 ISBN: 345319652-X
EAN: 978-345321346-3 ISBN: 345321346-7

However, there are numerous converters from ISBN to EAN available: https://www.isbn.org/ISBN_converter

What is true, is that an ISBN is also the ASIN (Amazon Standard Identification Number) of that book.


ISBNs have traditionally been 10 digits, but they've expanded to 13 digits now.  The title in question actually has a 13 digit ISBN and not a UPC/EAN.  Also, ISBNs begin with 978 or 979.

An EAN can be contributed for the correct country of release.  If an item has an EAN then it's a European release, but according to the GS1 that is not a valid GTIN so it seems to be an invalid number.

You could always contribute by disc ID.

EDIT: This is actually an ISBN and not a UPC.

Another option is to select the DVD and then select DVD -> Copy from the menu bar.  Select your Blu-ray profile and select DVD -> Paste from the menu bar.  In the popup window check both Cast and Crew click OK.
