With the latest change in Percent Complete Status in 5.25, I have been looking through my collection and realise that I can supply some High Res Covers for popular titles that have been locked.

Is there an easy way to contribute or do I have to request an unlock for each one?

Or have you thought about allowing High-Resolution Covers to be contributed even though the Standard Resolution Covers are locked?

And now, Region Codes and Writer are needed, can they be submitted to Locked Titles?

You should be able to contribute improved covers even on locked titles, if they are 300 dpi.

Also, you can add region code - crew you cannot as it is considered one entry - then you have to request a title unlock using the report incorrect data function.

Brian

Unfortunately, despite the new covers being 300dpi (I actually scanned them in 600dpi), I got the message saying Covers are locked and I need to Request a Mod to Unlock.

Can you give me the barcode of the title?

Then I will check.


Brian, I have been trying to upload data for the UK barcode 5039036017374 Star Wars Trilogy. The Bonus Material Disc in particular seems to be double locked. I managed to upload covers for it but I have 'Data improved. Please consider contributing.

Although Alvan Cruz unlocked it, after contribution I get a message 'This disc has been fully locked ......etc." and my changes are rejected.

What is happening here?

Alan

If this is the title I think it is the bonus disc is completely locked because there is no valid data for the empty fields and data should NOT be added to them. It is completely locked precisely to stop users from continually attempting to complete the percentage by adding incorrect/invalid data to the empty fields that have no valid data in such a situation.

The bonus disc is a collection of elements not a single feature so there is no valid cast/crew, or any title specific data valid for it and nothing more should be added to it. It is typical that such box set bonus discs will never have a complete 100% data because there is simply no valid data for the fields when every element has a different cast/crew, set of specifications and details so should be left blank.

The lock can be removed to allow a cover upgrade but should then be put back to prevent the data being once again filled in with invalid filler.

If this is the Blu-ray box set of the title I think it is make sure you are scanning the front cover correctly with the lid cap of the case in place so the blue strip is present on the front cover, scanning just the box front will be reverted back to the correct cover if not, but it will need to be fully locked again to stop the blank fields being filled in with invalid data.

I found its the DVD title and even there some invalid data has crept onto that bonus disc at some point.

Thanks Andy for your detailed explanation. I was only trying to add Region Codes 2 and 4 and correct a spelling mistake in the description (it says 'Star Wrs Trilogy').

I had another question - the box set parent entry itself contains the Discs and Disc Ids, but says 'Improvable - Chapter Names'. I briefly considered adding all the Chapter Names, but thought that siince they are on the discs themselves, it's not really necessary. Which is correct?

The parent is separate to the childs, the only way to make the improvable chapter names flag on the parent go away would be to add them all on the parent.
