I would disagree with that there are a number of profies that are wrong (bad data). Depending on who made the initial contribution into the new DB.  I wouldn't assume that just because someone had the old version of DVD profiler that their profiles were up-to-date before they bothered to contribute them into the new system.

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


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


With you on this John

I don't assume this at all, I just meant there ARE lots of profiles which are correct so adding the CoO without changing anything else should not be considered wrong...

Of course changing the CoO and not checking if there are other updates to be made is not wrong per se but I would agree with you that it is lazy and just doing the CoO without even checking for other updates should be discouraged.

Exactly.  This is a situation like Genres used to be at IVS with 2.5.  Not wrong to update but heavily frowned upon updating by itself.  Plus it is still a problematic field, and one which is supposed to be accompanied by documentation.  People are not only updating just the one field, they aren't providing the documentation. 

I could be a real hard ass and vote NO on each one like that, but it just isn't worth the effort.

Please do it John - it may just slow up the contributions a bit!!

I've given up on voting on anything other than images or by contributors I know who have likely updated more than a CoO

I'm all done my CoO contributions now; it wasn't so bad. I hope I haven't turned some of you away from checking contributions forever.

Some of the joint productions were really tricky: Casino Royale (1967), Casino Royale (2006), Labyrinth, Watcher in the Woods, Walker, Terror Train...

The rules don't say anything about lone CoO contributions, but they do mention that picky little things like genre-shuffling shouldn't be submitted alone. It's a new field, so you should expect some catching up. I realize that some folks here get upset when users don't follow certain conventions, and with the vast amount of users, that's unavoidable.

I haven't minded much seeing all the CoO updates.  I figure it this way - once all of my movies have been updated with CoO then there will be no need to keep clicking it anymore.
