this is boggling my little grey cells...

can someone tell me if there is a thread somewhere that says everything has to be resubmitted for updates. i realize that there are new tick boxes and info added, but i'm confused as to why i'm getting updates that simply say "new contribution" when the original profile has existed for years.

Invelos DVDProfiler 3.0 doesn't use the old database that Intervocative DVDProfiler used. When we started, there were only a few hundred titles in the DB DVDProfiler 3.0 uses. Now it's close to 3000.
If we weren't doing this and you picked up a catalogue title, you would have to download that profile with the old program and export it to the new program.

Did that clear things up?



thank you very much. that's the part i missed.

I would add that anything up for vote with the description 'new contribution' has been made by someone who hasn't noticed that the title is already available in the database.

And that contribution was made before the first contribution was approved

Saying that... I've just noticed it seems to be chucked in automatically at Invelos' end once something has been released. Just noticed one of my contributions includes it in the cont. notes when I hadn't put it there.

Ignore anything I say.

thanks kevin.

[okay, now there are four more post since i started writing this, so thanks to everyone...including my agent, my producer, but not the director... what a... (where does he think he is...who knows, where are you?)]


since everyone's being so accommodating, riddle me this. are the bottom buttons still for voting or locks or they now for voting on images since both data alterations and image alteration are on the same page.

i really did try to find this, but alac and alas, no luck.

many thanks from the minions lurking inside of

krik

i'd never ignore you, even when you say to...

When I checked Wednesday night I had 2,428 updates to check.   I shudder to think what it's up to now.  I may just wait a few weeks for the 'credited as' and new disc IDs to shake out a bit.

I had around 800 or so for 1000 or so profiles (I got a big wishlist and 800 odd owned titles), I just took a deep breath and hit the OK button on them all 


I have a felling you're gonna be wishing there was an UNDO button for that mistake


Judging by some of the crap I have on 600 / 1000 profiles I think you might regret that decision. In the rush to be the first to submit any given profile there are some horrific enteries getting through.

I had about 3,000 for the first download, checked every damn one of them; wait for it; 3 and a half hours later as it was downloading the internet and my computer decided they'd had enough and froze. So I waited half an hour then hit the cancel button and started again

LOL, egg for me it was no rush to gert there first, it was simply to help grow the Db as quickly as possible. Though I do wish I didn't have to contend with my own updates, another hint to Ken.

Actually, this is a 'glitch' in the system...well, not really a glitch more of a lag in the system.  I explained it in another thread, but I will post it again here...

One person submits the profile because it is not in the system.  Before it is processed, another person submits the same profile thinking it is not in the system.  Because the first profile hasn't been processed yet, the system believes the second one to be a 'new contribution' as well.  Since the system is treating the second contribution as a new contribution, there is nothing for the contributor to compare it to.  There is no indication that it is not new.

Once the first one is accepted and released, the system treats the second one as an update and it is put into the voting system.  But, because it was initially treated as a new profile, there are no notes.

Hope that helps.

I've already backtracked from my original post about two minutes after I'd made it.
