In this case I would guess that people saw a No vote that - at first glance - looked valid, so they just agreed without thinking it through any further.

Perhaps, but Ken put in an option for those who don't wish to think -- it's a Neutral vote.

You would have to think in order to realize that you don't wish to think. Catch 22. 

You'd think (!) that those who voted No would read this thread and realize that there is a great majority that is for these changes, and that they would rethink their vote. But apparently not.

I'm guessing that three of the six "No" voters have done so, as we have three votes for the current title option (option #4).  Of course, none of those three have given us any insight as to how they concocted that particular title from the cover.

It seems to me that option #4 is one of the more difficult choices to explain.  Not only does it list the words out of order (shouldn't "Volume 5" come at the very end?), but it also contains slashes ("/") that aren't anywhere on the cover and don't seem to be allowed by the title section of the rules.  Why are colons (":") used between some words and slashes between others?  It's curious.

I believe they are likely deriving the / from the convention for sets like this one (sample picture below), wherein you would enter the title of the parent profile as Devils of Darkness / Witchcraft

If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.

Today, Invelos has made it clear that 85% of us are wrong and have no idea how to determine the title of this box set.

No, if the screeners are happy I'll just keep my local data locked and not worry about it anymore.  But since I obviously don't know how to read a cover I'll continue to keep my contributions few and far between.

So per screener the title of this box set would be Ultimate Big Box Collection of Horror: (and all 29 film titles)?

Seems stupid.  I've got over 150 of these type of box sets. Guess I've got some work to do.
