Default How to submit DVDs to database

I`ve got a few films that I`ve got on DVD in the UK that are not in the catalogue - How do I go about getting those added?

You need to be a member a set period and have a set number of posts, then you can submit entries to the database.

How To Add DVDs to the Database - and Your Collection.

If you have any questions please ask in the thread above. But generally speaking you start off from the theatrical entry, add the EAN (barcode) and the Amazon ASIN (their product page) and fill in the title's specifications. Bundles can be added as well for box sets.

I'd add that the minimum requirements to add/edit the database (catalogue) appear to be 10 or more forum posts and also having been a member for 30 or more days.

The people who make the rules (not us) haven't said why, but the best guess is to prevent someone signing up and immediately trying to change or add incorrect info. I hope you aren't too disappointed by the restrictions, and wish you luck in getting your titles added soon.

In the mean time, for us new to the site is there a forum/thread where we can provide those details and have someone add them? I found one post where someone had volunteered, but I haven't seen a dedicated forum/thread for it yet.

No problems. Got a few DVDs that I`d like to get on the system that are not already, but I`ll hold on until I`ve been a member for 30 days (Not too long!)

I`m still a bit unsure -How do I go about adding DVDS? I`m sure I`ve been a member for more than 30 days.

If you go to the page of any DVD, you should see an "Add new movie" link.



That will take you to the new DVD form.

But if you want to save some work, find the movie's theatrical page first (using the "Movies" tab at the top of the forum):



Then, click on Create: DVD.



That will take you to the same form but several fields will automatically be filled in using info from the theatrical page.

Yup. You just have to click the "Add new movie" link on any blu-ray's page or select "Blu-ray" on the film's theatrical page.

Do those options to edit, add new movie, etc. only appear after the 30 day/10 post requirement?

Why can't we just give the info to other users and have them do it?

I know there is some kind of waiting period.

Is there any way to see what submissions we have pending? I remember adding a few DVDs a while back and they never were approved.


Edit:

Nvm, i see where it is now.
