Got a heap I've contributed waiting to be approved. Is this something I can help with? Or is it all down to our illustrious, missing leader to approve?


I think a lot of us would volunteer to help out. I certainly would too.

I have never been able to get into the Contribution Rules Committee either, despite people suggesting me and it. Although I suspect there is nothing going on there nowadays.


Yeah, there hasn't really been anything there in years. I think Ken had to approve access to that forum...

On a similar problem I am finding a large percentage of DVDs are not being found.

These are not rare or limited versions and I can't believe they haven't been entered yet...

John Wick Chapter 1&2 (2 disc set)
John Wick 3
Rambo Last Blood

I know they aren't the biggest selling movies ever but I cant be the only person to have them


Likely a sign of less and less people contributing since this is a user contributed database. There were less contributors for Blu-ray's and even less for UHD Blu-ray.

Would love to receive some numbers, unique logins, number of contributions etc.

Always a worry when the cheif goes missing and it seems that no one else is given a set of keys.

I understand that with streaming less people are buying DVS etc but surely there can't only be me that still uses DVD Profiler and bought Last Blood, it was released in 2019

Thanks

I think lately, especially for more recent releases, and even more for UHD releases, you have to be lucky that someone bought it, is using DVD profiler and did contribute the profile into the system.

I did the contribution for the 4 recent 4K/BD Christmas movies UK releases. I'm sure, that if I didn't do the contribution for those movies, it still today wouldn't been contributed.
Usually, especially in the past, a lot of profiles were already made at the time of pre-orders. Lately, I see this happening less and less.

It does seem to be the case.

I can see the point of waiting until release but, for example Last Blood is from 2019

There are multiple entries for the Blu-ray releases which suggests a lot of people who still actively use profiler tend toward HD releases when available. Certainly that's always my preference and I'll pay the premium to import if the UK only gets a dvd release of a title I really want.

The Don't Open Till Christmas Blu-ray (UPC: 814456026251) database entry appears to be messed up. Even though this is an existing entry and there are no pending contributions it gives an new profile type error message.

Quote:
This profile cannot be contributed due to the following errors:
A pending contribution already exists for this profile ID. Generally, new contributions are processed within a few days.

If applicable, please check these items and make any necessary corrections, then try the contribution again.

The last new contribution I submitted was approved and released the next day, and profile updates without any 'No' votes are only taking four or five days to be processed and released, so it looks like all is good at the moment.

Things looked to have picked up, with most new contributions being approved and released in a day or two, or even the same day, then I contributed two pre-release profiles (and an update to an existing profile) on February 23 and they are still pending.

There is nothing contentious in those contributions and everything is sourced from existing profiles with full documentation in the contribution notes.

Because of the delay, they are now no longer pre-release profiles and are probably preventing other people from adding decent profiles of their new purchases to their collections.

Approvals have definitely slowed down again as most are taking 8 days, but I had one that was submitted on 14 Feb that was jut approved on 26 Feb.

Those two contributions were approved yesterday, taking approximately 10 days
