My understanding was that if something is re-released with the same UPC we just go with the original cover.  If it was never in the database to begin with, then you can only submit the cover you have to hand.

If someone wants to contribute the original cover later on, I would give that a positive vote, rather than a negative one.

For my part, I'm not trying to attack anyone.  After reading this thread, I went over to the common name threads and read up on the issues going on over there.  I can see both sides of the argument, and I certainly understand the frustration of not being able to have any kind of official (i.e. Ken) ruling on the interpretation of the disputed rule in question.

Personally, I try stay out of the realm of common names because it's too much to keep up with anymore.  I've noticed a few recently that I don't know if they've been established or not, and I haven't gone forward with doing anything about them because it's a pain in the rear.

Since I'm convinced Ken will never be involved again, the only way I see us moving forward is to either all agree to run the contribution rules by consensus or we're going to continue to lose users over these sorts of frustrations.

Hey, cool idea! I am not qualified to participate, but I think it would be great if you could suggest some kind of process, and then get agreement by those members most active / affected / whatever, and I would be among those who would agree to abide by those rules for the future. Anybody who clams we are not a community need look no further than your post to be proved wrong!


Brilliant ideas from both of you.  We could set up some kind of members' group that we elect.  (senior members?) They then look at rules people have trouble with, come up with suggestions, put it to a vote among themselves and then offer us all a chance to vote on the three or four options they've come up with, then we vote for what we'd like the new rules to be.  Democratic, and will be all done through user involvement.

This is unfortunate because you're both valued contributors.  I can see where you're both coming from, but I do think you might be taking this to heart more than was intended.

I can see the thread, and I can see your interactions with one another.  I really don't think the other poster was claiming omniscience, attacking you or in any way dismissive.

Maybe a break and then a return, rather than a complete departure?

What did you put in the notes?  I've never had a problem unless I've forgotten to include some details, and I completely understand why those contributions would be declined.

When it comes to uncredited cameos, I usually mention something about knowledge of the actor in question, which seems to do the trick.

I can't begin to say how relieved I am!
