That was in the context of box sets.

Packaging has changed in the four years since he posted that.

It should be revisited.

I tried responding twice to  your posting, one of which was relatively long, but the board's software decided that it would rather not post either of them and error instead.

I'm not even going to try and redo what I originally wrote.

In a nutshell, how box sets, slip covers and slip cases are used for various releases makes no sense.  As Spock would say: illogical.

I would like to comment on the rule in which slip covers must be the actual images.

They often contain marketing jargon and additional text which detracts from a good "image" of the actual cover.

Example being, tonight I got nailed by this and I did not even catch it in the rules before submitting (My apologies) but I posted high-res scans of the Jurassic Park Trilogy inside box art. It is 99.9% the same as the slip cover except did not include the "Open here" and "Digital Copy" text.

To me, that made for a BETTER image to represent the image because A) nobody could possibly "open up" an image and the latter the "digital copy" is drm infested and cannot be shared with friends ever, and it expires. The Movies do not expire, but marketing stunts do.

I am confused as to why the rules situate inferior covers with marketing on them instead of higher quality basic representations of the actual movie cover as sold. Can someone provide some clarity for me?

Sorry if I'm sounding like a jerk I just don't understand.

Open here?  That's a new one. As to the digital copy or other marketing items, these are generally handled by stickers which we usually remove. I would have to see the cover slip to be if much more specific comment.

There are several points:
- a lot of people want the visible cover
- later issues may not contain such "clean art" sheet
- the strict rule avoids any further need for discussion when an alternative could/should/would be used

I personally am no fan of rating logos, so I avoid them locally where ever I can, even by photoshopping them out sometimes, but I'm fully aware that those covers aren't contributable.

Best way to proceed: scan the slip box and contribute it, scan the clean-art and lock it. And if you feel the need to share it, see "Alternative Cover" in my signature.

Open here makes me wonder if you aren't dealing with the gift set, if so that is an inegral part of the kind of referring to the dino inside. As to the expiration date of the digital copy, that too is integral and important infovto capture. From what I can uncover I dontvthink these are stickers.

The program has a set time limit in which a post needs to be submitted. Here is a recent thread that discusses just that issue: http://invelos.com/Forums.aspx?task=viewtopic&topicID=602395&messageID=1748695#M1748695,

I tend to ramble and lost many a post before learning to copy it before I hit the Preview or Submit button.

The open here show you you can open the front (the discs, housed in a digipack, slide out of the bottom or top), which shows you some extra information.

In regards to slipcovers that open up I think we need another case type.

For example, the Jurassic Park example above, the Paramount and Universal 100th Anniversary slips.
Back in the laserdisc era I think we called them gatefolds.

So perhaps something called Gatefold Slipcover.

**************************************

And I would like to see something added in cases where a custom case is held in a box. Such as the Star Trek Enterprise case from Target that came unassembled inside a box. Or the Toy Story 3 Target exclusive Buzz Lightyear figure that came in a big plastic box.

Perhaps for Custom case types we could have a checkbox for Box or whatever outer case type that the actual movie case is held inside of.

Right now I think custom doesn't really cover the actual outer case, just the case type that the discs are held in.

Seems like some contributions refer to a paper sleeve as a slip cover. I'm referring to the temporary glued on paper sleeves that comes with steelbooks and sometimes digibooks. Or would you call that a slip cover?

Haven't seen that before... but I would definitely vote No on those.  In no way are they a 'slip' cover, they are temporary packaging to list details of the disc.

That one is from The Hobbit digibook with the 64 page booklet. Once the wrapping is removed this comes loose. This is the only place the UPC is found and The Blu-Ray+DVD+Ultraviolet discription on the smaller front tab. More of a J-Cover.

Sorry, I meant I haven't seen someone try to submit it as a slipcover before!  I have a lot of Steelbooks and Digibooks and have them packed away.  The question is wether to use it as the back image.  That seems to be the case and how I submit them, but I can see why others would like to see the artwork.

That was approved as a slip cover for the DVD I just bought. Was already approved by the time I added it to my collection.
