Sometimes a locality of a DVD will get corrected, which means deleting the profile from the main database in favour of a version with the correct locality. If I understand correctly, the profile will remain in people's personal collections; they just won't be updated. That being the case, is there any way to determine which profiles in a collection have been deleted from the main database so that users can delete their version in favour of the version that will potentially be updated?

Do they get deleted? all it is doing is make another profile. I don't see why it would effect the original in the main database.

Yes, when incorrect localities are fixed, people generally ask for the DVD with the wrong locality to be deleted.

I don't know if that helps, but I have defined an extra button bar for online tasks:



For profiles, which don't exist online, the visit profile links is greyed out (as shown).

Hmm, that could do in a pinch. The problem is I have a pretty large collection, so that is useful if I already suspect a DVD is offline, but it would probably take hours to click on individial DVDs to see if that's greyed out. I'm looking more for something that could scan my collection for DVDs not in the system. But that is still a good thing to keep an eye out for.

... the work in behind would the same: selecting each profile and trying to download it (or any information belonging to it) from the online data base. I don't know if a plugin already does anything like that by accident...

You know, you can scroll through the collection with your mouse wheel? When you PC and Internet is fast enough, you should get through about three per second. An hour of fully concentration...

I'm about to release an updated BulkEdit with the CLT tool. What the heck, as if BulkEdit were not bloated enough, can you tell me in a little more detail what that scan would do? There are a bunch of "high speed" online searches that are available to plugins. For example, the CLT tool ("CLTBoss") uses a database call that says "please give me all the profiles that are associated with this UPC". A fraction of a second later, you get a list from all localities, and all variants that use the UPC as a base. Could that help? Scan your collection, extract the UPC base, and return any matches, regardless of locality? It might take some time for the scan ...
Thanks for your support.

Off topic, but mediadogg, would BulkEdit enable me to get rid of the media banner on all the images in my database?  So I don't have to go through and click "off" individually for each side of each profile?

- edit one profile and disable media banners, save and close
- select DVD -> Copy
- press CTRL-A
- select Collection -> Flagged -> Paste
- select Confirm ... (top), Media Banners (lower right) and Override Locks (bottom) -> OK

You can turn off the media banners under Tools -> Edit Media Types, select your media type, unselect Use default banners and select None for both front and back banners.

From my point of view - but maybe AndyEN should answer this question - getting all profiles for one UPC is the wrong direction. As I understood the problem: He wants to find all the profiles in HIS personal data base, which do NOT belong to a online profile.

So the job to do would be:
For Each local profile
    IF the profile is not downloadable from the online data base THEN ADD the local profile to a list of abandoned profiles
provide the list of abandoned profiles for further investigation/export/tagging/whatever...

Correct. The issue is the profiles *were* online at one point, but then someone submitted a profile with a different locality and then for the original profile locality sent a "Moderators please delete" edit.
