Maybe it is just me, but I am getting very weary of all the coo profiles that need votes.
At this point even though I may miss some important change in the profile of a DVD I own, I only vote on Images, and those DVDs that are special to me.

Am I the only one?

It would be nice if people would just do CoO as part of a larger update to the profile instead of all these individual updates for one not terribly significant piece of data.

I agree they should also be looking to fix any other data that might need correcting.

Count me in as well.
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.
The Centauri learned this lesson once.
We will teach it to them again.
Though it take a thousand years, we will be free.

I am almost done my CoO contributions. It's a compulsion to contribute them. I want all my DVDs to have CoO by the end of this week.

There's a drawback to the volume of single field updates in that you do get repetitive and the muscle memory can take over and your brain can fall asleep.  I noticed this last night once when I automatically clicked yes just as I realized it was wrong. Had to back up. Sure enough, it was a "United States" on a no-doubt-about-it French profile.

What I do is go through my queue looking for users who don't seem to be "on a roll" if you know what I mean. If a user is just doing a few, I guess that they are wider updates, and I look at those first. Then I go back and fall in line for a round of COO's.

Have you thought about joining CoO Anonymous or some other 10 step program.

It seems to be sort of a "land run" for recognition.  Any approved detail, no matter how small, gets you permanent credit as a contributor to that title.  With the new fields a busy clicker could look like the most prolific contributor in the community.

I went cold turkey two days ago.  I just vote Neutral on them now.

Weird topic/post this is, everybody talks about getting the database together in the best way possible and now it's to much trouble to vote? So what if it's only Coo, at least people are doing something to get the database in order in the best way they can, inspired maybe by the new version and all the talk i just mentioned above.

So either stop nagging about it or stop talking about wanting the have the database in the best possible way, you can't have both 

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body,
but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: 'WOW What a Ride!!!

If you haven't notice, I don't think anyone is out and out complaining, most post have been in a joking manner.

To be fair, though it does get a bit boring seeing all the CoO updates, it's not fair to say "part of a large update" considering a hell of a lot of the profiles are pretty complete old IVS profiles so don't really need any other updates.
It is dangerous to be right in matters where established men are wrong
