Have been wearing out Ebay lately and doing my part to keep the post office solvent. Kinda blew past the 28,000 mark and at over 28,500 now.

So... how many movies a day do you have to watch to keep up?

there's no reason that "if a company name heads a group of crew" couldn't be applied to a puppeteering company if there are valid credits listed under it.

No reason except that puppeteers are "cast" and not "crew".

Comments  like this are really helpful! Thanks for your extraordinary support!

No one who can give you a really helpful answer (Invelos) will bother doing so.

And without knowing if I or what I did wrong this time, it is quite difficult to make it better the next time.

A dedicated UPC-scanner in 2020? Why not simply use a smartphone?

Because for some of us the convenience of importing directly into the desktop application is worth the $15.

It is not like the screener has the disc in front of them to check... they rely on the votes.

When cover images are online the screeners do not need to rely on the voters.  They can look.

Plus Ken stated they will accept some wrong info if the majority is right.

This appears to be random.  Sometimes this happens and sometimes it does not.  As I've said, it almost seems as if it's a coin toss when "no" votes are received.

It's strange and a bit frustrating why there isn't consistency so you can have two identical contributions with identical wording and one will be approved the other will be rejected.

I would say that the screening process has succumbed to the same apathy as the technical support.  The powers-that-be behind Invelos have lost interest.

It seems likely that the approval process is automatic for contributions with no "no" votes, and a coin toss for the others.

But a 2005 movie is not new either. And a 1995 movie is one human generation old.

One doesn't go from new to old in the blink of an eye.  There is a transition period that's as long as each of us would like it to be.  An "old" movie for me is one that was around during my youth.  YMMV.

Almost all movies are Blu-ray except for old movies that don't rely on special effects and which I've never seen so don't even know if I like them.

What "old movies"?  I don't even see anything there that's B&W.

My philosophy is, if it's younger than me, it's not an old movie.

But ... are they still original songs?

Is it still the same movie?

Would you enter this film in the database as:

Title:  Hell's Bloody Devils
Original Title: Smashing the Crime Syndicate

If not, then they are not original songs.

I've likewise got my collection stored on a Plex server though I've used Handbrake to convert the raw MKV files to h.265. Takes a 25GB MKV to 4-6GB. I've got 1,121 movies taking up 4.32 TB of storage which used to take over half of my 54TB NAS, freeing up enough space that I could take out a 6TB drive from the array and use it as a hot spare.

I have a little over 2200 movies on my Plex server so far, and like you am using Handbrake to convert the MKV files -- h.265 for Blu-rays and H.264 for DVDs.  I still have a little over 400 movies to go (plus whatever I buy from time to time.)  I only have about half of my TV series done yet though.

More and more of my collection is winding up on my Plex server.  I think I have about 15 TB of video files on there so far.

Except for: "If there are no credits, the film's official site may be used as a source."

The question then is if these actors taken from an offical source should be marked as uncredited.

Yes, they should be marked as uncredited.  The referenced bullet point in the rules begins with the words, "If there are no credits", so by definition they would be uncredited.

I've only bought three DVDs this year so far, and I bought 19 DVDs last year, (three were boxed sets.)

This contrasts to 132 Blu-rays purchased in the same time period, 11 of which are boxed sets.

So since January 2019, about 14% of my disc purchases are DVDs, and about 86% are Blu-rays.

Use this: "All info from the disc and/or disc credits. Cover scans and price from amazon.es"

If every movie has its own profile, you can set the Sort Order name to keep the films of your series in the desired order (e.g. MCU 01, MCU 02, MCU 03, etc.).

Also, create a Tag called "Series".  Create a child tag under that called "Marvel-Cinematic-Universe".  Create child tags under that called "Avengers", "Captain-America", "Iron-Man", etc.  Assign each film in the series to the desired tag.  When you want to see just the Iron Man films filter on the Iron-Man tag.  When you want to see all the MCU films, filter on the Marvel-Cinematic-Universe tag.  Because of the Sort Order you've set, these films will always show up in the order you want.

You can't collapse the series without using a box set, but you can group and filter your series using sort order and tags.

For example, for the James Bond series of films I created a tag called "James Bond" and have checked it for each of the Bond films.  I also have my sort titles set to "Bond 01", "Bond 02", etc.

If I filter on the James Bond tag only those films show up, and in the order I assigned to them.

Per the rules, you can use the back for some clarifications if necessary.

Not for boxed sets.  Per the rules:

The title for a Box Set should be the title listed on the front cover, for example Alien Quadrilogy


This contribution being declined for one lone "no" vote just proves how broken the contribution/voting system is.

The easiest way for this to happen is if you forgot to click on the Add... button before editing the studio name.



If this isn't what happened, then I don't know.
