Suggestion: why not change the feature checkbox "Outtakes/Bloopers" to just "Bloopers"? The word "outtakes" seems to cause a lot of confusion: many DVD covers and menus refer to what we call "Deleted Scenes" as "Outtakes", resulting in users checking the "Outtakes/Bloopers" checkbox - when in fact, there aren't any... If we only referred to "Bloopers" as just that, "Bloopers", we'd solve that. Apart from renaming the checkbox, the clarifying sentence in the rules would need a minor correction as well:

Quoting the current contribution rules:
Quote:
Footage, generally mistakes, captured during filming, generally humorous. Occasionally, outtakes are scripted (e.g. animated outtakes).

Suggested change:

Amend to add Gag Reel to bloopers.

Some menus call it that.

Bloopers are more along the lines of mistakes and aren't necessarily scripted where as outtakes can be scripted, but never originally intended to be a part of the actual film.  Deleted scenes are scenes that were filmed with the intention of being included in the film, but were later cut for one reason or another.
