Could Ken please provide a list of recognized sites?

I think this would act as a great guide for submitting links. I'd also like to suggest that http://www.boxofficemojo.com/ be added to this list.

We still need an answer on the question if we should only add english content links or not. 

If we are allowed to add also foreign language links, it would be a nice idea to place a flag picture behind the link so you can see it before clicking. (Like the flag symbol we have for our profiles)

Finnish movies that are shown in other countries often have a website in finnish, swedish and english, so one flag wouldnt be enough. E.g.:

Good to know, thanks. So we would need the possibility of choosing more than one flag per link.

I'm not sure it makes much sense to link to reviews which focus especially on a special DVD release instead of the movie only.

Found a few links to reviews on:

http://www.dvdpascher.net/

But having links to dvd reviews for a france DVD release is not much helpful when it is shown for english, german, japan etc. releases. 

It would make much more sense to only allow links to review sites that focus on the movie itself as it is linked to all different DVD releases of this movie.

I found that when I was looking at one film I have which has two versions - there are two different reviews which each reviewed a separate version - but now both reviews are showing on both films..



I think there needs to be some re-thought as to having all the links appear on all versions..

I've added an option to the link entry that allows linking by Title/Production Year (the default), or to a single profile only.

Also, we already have links for over 49,000 DVDs. O.o Nice job everyone!

It's not working Ken, I tried this for The Ice Storm (Criterion Edition) but the link shows up on my other edition of the same film as well even though I picked one profile only.

Besides displaying the flags (or maybe even instead of the flags) I would prefer to set which languages I want to include links from in my profile settings.

Same disc-id perhaps?

Definitely not the same disc ID. But whatever it was, it seems to have been fixed now...

I'd like to second this!  I can't tell you how many times I've had to check the "General Info" button for this site.  Aside from the official sites, Box Office Mojo is the only site I enter links for that the system doesn't recognize.
