Thank you for your interest in contributing to the DVD Profiler main database!
As part of our ongoing quest to maintain, improve and refine the largest
database of DVD information in the world, we have created these rules. These
rules apply to online contributions. You can use DVD Profiler locally, or you
can contribute to the main online database, or you can do both. If you want to
contribute to the online database, the rules tell you how to complete each DVD
If you wish to save different information in your local profiles, you are free
to do so in your local database, but do not contribute your information.
The main database is standardized so that all profiles follow these rules. DVD
Profiler allows you to lock your data so that it is not overwritten by updates
from the main database. If you completely lock your profiles, your personal
information (with the exception of Cover Scans) will still show in your online
database, called “My Profiler”.
The authoritative source for information submitted should be the DVD
itself. Please don't make a correction to an existing profile based on
the content of a third party database or the specifications printed on the
cover. In both cases, errors abound, so always verify the information
directly from the DVD whenever possible.
These rules apply to all kinds of profiles, but there are two special cases
where the rules need clarifications. Where you see the icons shown below, refer
to the special instructions at the end of this document. These are titled Movie
Box sets and TV Series on DVD.
||Box sets containing more than one film
||TV Series on DVD
Note: The standard rules do apply for these special cases; the sections clarify
specific ways the rules apply to box sets and television series on DVD.
We hope every user learns something from this list of rules, and that reading
all of the rules adds to your enjoyment of DVD Profiler!
Note: These rules are subject to change without notice. For a list of selected
significant updates, see the Revision
