I'm new to My Movies. After importing my movie collection from DVD Profiler, I want to contribute data for disks that are not 100% complete or have wrong data.

I stumbled about some contributed front covers. Here in Germany, front covers normally have an FSK-rating on the bottom left. As written in your Documentation, optional reverse covers without rating marks should not be used.

Here is an example:
EAN 4009750303597 - Killer's Bodyguard (Blu-ray)

That's the front cover with FSK-rating:

Contributed to your database is the optional reverse front cover without FSK-rating:

Which one should be used? The one with FSK-rating? If yes, should I upload correct front and back covers in that case? Undecided

Personally, I don't like FSK-ratings on the front covers. But if you want to have them in your database, we should upload them, shouldn't we?

The cover with the rating should be used just as written in the rules.

The database does not operate on a total pre-approval system, essentially only some new user and full box sets currently go through a pre-approval process. So it is entirely possible to find items in the database where users have made contributions that do not always follow the rules correctly, for these we have the incorrect data reports process or in such circumstances you are welcome and encouraged to contribute the correct covers and data to replace any that do not follow guidelines.

Good to know!

So I will contribute correct covers when I find incorrect ones. :)

Thanks!
