There are louds of double contributions now, i thought that id wait a while for the first batch of contributions to be approved and then continue contributing. The thing i was wondering, is there an easy way to know if a profile is already in the DB, or should i just contribute everything and if the evaluation screen pops up, check which data is better?

I remember seeing the "Updates Available" button light up on some profiles, but not all. Should i do some update so that the button would be up to date with the master database?

I requested a new button for that.

Although I've found a not that good workaround.

Basically, download the profile database frequently, but don't update your profiles. Then the icon indicating if there is a new profile pending will be shown if its in the database.

Downside is that there is no way to filter on this and if you have a large collection checking could take a while unless you flag them. Which is something I forgot to do

I noticed that when on the contribute screen 'include cover scans' is not flagged always the dvd already is in the database.

See your On-line db. If cover scans exist, profile has been approved. Best way...don't know, but at least it works.

i've been using the locks screen - you can not edit locks for titles not in the db, but the title will show in the main list of titles found there.
