Dear forum. These are my first words here, though I actually have been using DVD Profiler since 2007.

I have a specific contribution problem, that You, the Community, may think is no problem at all.

A few years ago I added my Norwegian EAN 5050582869101 (Rambo: The Trilogy: Ultimate Edition), that came up unknown. It's just a cheap DVD box set, so I haven't prioritized to fill inn the blanks until now. This week I finally got time to enter the details to the profile, and it's child profiles. I have regulary refreshed my database from the online database, so this profile have not been contributed by other users yet.

After a few hours of work, I contributed the main box set profile. Everything seemed OK so far. But when I tried to contribute child profiles (Disc ID only), they seem to already have been contributed as stand alone EAN movies with their own covers. I then remembered I did get a heads up, noting me that each Disc ID for the child profiles already were registered as their correct movies. But I have seen this in earlier versions of DVD Profiler, where disc IDs then have pointed to other countries. So I ignored these notes, thinking I did the right.

The already existing online child profiles made me abort the contribution of the child profiles from my collection, because I didn't want to mess up others peoples fine work.

I got so confused, but I want to do this right. I therefore ask the community of what You recommend me to do with this. Should I dust leave it this way? The main box set profile I just contributed would then probably get the existing child profiles, with wrong EAN's and their own profile pictures. Is that OK? Maybe I should have done this in another way (how)? Please advise.

Box set: 5050582869101.12 (Norwegian)
Child 1: I75F5FDC0471C7506.12 (Norwegian)
Child 2: IFCC56519D08EB02E.12 (Norwegian)
Child 3: I7D43B6E270845A9C.12 (Norwegian)

I had a look by downloading 5050582869101 in my Wish List. The only profile 5050582869101 in the dB is for region 16 (Finland), 5050582869101.16 which has 3 child profiles entered by UPC,:

You should be able to contribute the profile with region 12 (Norway), 5050582869101.12

Regarding the child profiles: if you try to contribure by discID and another discID profile already exists in the same locality (12 here), you have to create an alternate version.
