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.

Just curious, but why would there be an alternate version?

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.

Box Sets on the other hand are quite empty, because most info belongs to the child profiles only except info regarding every movie in this box set like one digital copy code for three movies.


The rules don't support this. Recent discussion determined digital copies go on the individual movies.


I get the desire to profile a digital copy to a specific movie, but that makes little sense since if you're profiling based on each individual disc (disc ID) most digital copies today aren't on a disc.  They're on a paper slip in the main release (package) so they have nothing to due with the disc.  Are we profiling discs or movies because I've heard both arguments before.

As I wrote before, for me, as a German (we know all about rules! ) and not native English speaker they seem obvious. I don't see, why the rules for BD/DVD should not apply to UHD/BD. Maybe the rules need a clarification for "normal profile", but for the rest a "The same applies to UHD/BD." would be sufficient.

I will lock my features at least for my US-UHDs as well. I want to see everything what's there for a movie without opening any child profiles. Especially not in the iPhone App.


Agree.

Maybe it's up for interpretation but I don't see where in that rule it says to put the information from all media types on the main profile.  The way I read it is that for combos, you put the information from the "dominant" media type in the main profile and that's it.  And then if you want the information from the "lesser" media type, you can add a child profile.  Isn't that what it says?


It may be up for interpretation, but I would consider a "normal profile" includes all pertinent information pertaining to the release.  The main profile is cataloged by the UPC/EAN unless, that is, the release doesn't have a UPC/EAN and the UPC/EAN is for the entire package not just a specific media type or individual disc.  Therefore, from my view, the "normal profile" should include the pertinent information, which would include all features in said package, for the release or package.  The "normal profile" already includes information pertinent to the entire package which isn't format specific; e.g. media types (DVD, BD, UHD), digital copy, disc information, release date, SRP, etc.  Remember that the other media types are optional so not everyone may use those profiles for combo sets.

It's also more convoluted since the studios don't put all features on all media types.  But what about multiple discs of the same media type; one BD with the main feature along with special features and a second BD with additional special features?  In this case, would you suggest that all special features spanning across multiple discs of the same media type would be cataloged in the main profile?  If so, why would the same not apply if the features span different media types?

Now, I wish DVD Profiler was designed differently to better catalog the features information and to catalog/view the individual discs differently.  To me, the way we currently profile individual discs is due to a current design limitation and is not optimal.

For me, I would like to be able to catalog/list each feature with it's associated run time and to a specific disc.  However, I'd like for all of that info to be contained within the main profile and not separate disc profiles.  I'd also like to be able to list the individual run times for each episode of a TV series.

So, I'm a bit confused. Is there anything in the rules about something like a 4K/BD combo pack (or before BD/DVD)? If the 4K has no bonus features while the Blu-ray does, does that mean the parent profile should be blank or should it include the features on the Blu-ray disc as well?


UHD BD is still BD, but just considered profile 6 by the BDA.

There's no Mac version. The information on that website is incorrect.


Incorrect?  It's true that there isn't a Mac version.  But it runs fine in Windows emulators.  I use Parallels on my Mac and have no issues running the program.  That said, I'd very much prefer a native Mac application, but at least there are options.  I also don't suspect we'll ever see a Mac version unless a third-party takes that project on.  I'd love to be wrong, but that's my guess.


There's a slight possibility if Ken upgrades to a newer version on Delphi which supports cross-platform.

I would say yes, because this is an animated film.  Although performance capture was used for a small portion of the film the end result was an animated product.
