Terry:

What you describe, you are free to do locally, the Rules are very clear on this and spell out where to pull the data from and what the exceptions are. Hollywood uses a LOT of different methods to list cast, sometimes its based on billing, sometime order of appearance, sometimes alpha order and other times just some order that makes no real sense (like Open Range). But that doesn't mean that you are free to try to impose your wishes on the Online Db. You and I have been over this kind of stuff repeatedly for a long time now and I have always tried to help and explain it to you, yet I continue to see instances where you decide to take off in your direction. Just follow the Rules, my friend.

Is there any indication that Terry has tried to contribute anything in this format, or are you just pontificating again?

We just had another thread locked...can some people please get a clue?  Some people need to take a long hard look in the mirror and realize that they are doing the exact same thing they are accusing others of doing.

If you don't like what someone wrote, don't reply to it.  Constantly yelling 'harassment', not only doesn't make it so but also ends up making you look like a childish fool.

Note: this post wasn't directed at any one person so please don't send me any PMs. If you took offense, that should tell you something...

Just keep in mind,, That when I put in that contribution for Open Range, I checked the data base and found two entrees for Open Range.,., Each had the same UPC and one was locality Canada, and the other DVD ( mine) was the USA locality. So I then opened up the Canadian disc in the DATAbase 'on line' and checked the cast credits. It had the the three main actors in the top three spots, so I just Presumed (as naive as I might be,)  that the USA version was out of whack.,
So I then checked some other on line data bases for Open Range and they all listed the same actors in order as the approved Canadian Disc did, Again, in the data base of Invelos. .So I did the contribution, sat back and waited to see how it took, .
When you PM'd me and told me of the rules. , I immediately within that day withdrew the contribution, No argument at that point, Until when I thought you were dissin' me on the forum here, (of which you said you were not.)
I knew the rules had three ways of listing the names as we know . Either cast by appearance, or cast by order of studio arrangement, or cast by alphabetical order. What I didn't understand was you cannot use the front cast crew credits only the  ending., That was conflicted by the evidence I just stated, as one 'approved DVD' does not mean it is correct, unless you check with Skip first.

I do not even own the disc at this point, as it is in my wish list, BUT Invelos doesn't mind of you don't physically have the disc on hand., If you have it in your wish list or order list you can vote or contribute the changes. So since I don't own the disc to check, my other ways of checking did not as you say .. " that doesn't mean that you are free to try to impose your wishes on the Online Db. You and I have been over this kind of stuff repeatedly for a long time now and I have always tried to help and explain it to you, yet I continue to see instances where you decide to take off in your direction. Just follow the Rules, my friend. " ..

So that is my story and I'm , sticking to it.

You were wrong on Open Range, terry...very simple. I have no need to apologize, whatever the reason I have seen you do this all to often, to the point that I am very careful when reviewing your Contributions. Does it make me feel bad...yes...it always does, but its not for me to worry about that. When I see you violating the Rules I will tell you, in the case of Open Range, I Pm'd you, you read it and chose not even so much as say Whoops sorry about that, so what am I to presume.
