  • General Question Bad meta-info

    Here lately I have been seeing a lot of meta-info that don't match the DVD at all. Maybe with all these new people joining in they are a little confused as to what should be used for what. Is there some kind of a guide that has been created that they can look at.

    I have been seeing a lot of mislabeled items. The most obvious being movie trailers labeled as interviews or other miscellaneous junk.

    I'd hate to see this unique feature compromised by poor data. Is there any way that we can correct the bad meta-info other than just reporting it. I have a lot of time on my hands.

    Yes, click the button to open the Edit Meta Info page, then click the Report button in the upper right. No other way to do it presently.

      One other thing, I noticed that the meta-titles haven't been updated in a long time. Example I'm still listed as a matter contributor even though I've uploaded over 257 titles. I think there several other people that way too. But think I read somewhere that you had set up for different titles depending on how many uploads you made.

        You are correct and I apologize for the delay. Many of the high level contributors such as you that could have the special title either are not forum members or have different forum and Meta usernames and I can't find them (there is no common list). Anyone with this problem should contact me via PM.

          Remove bad / unwanted meta info

          Occasionally i am coming across a disk that somebody has been a little lazy in their meta data upload and called all the tracks exactly the same thing.

          And I am not allowed to update the meta info because it is already uploaded.

          Because the ripper displays the meta info in preference to the track list it makes it very difficult to tell one track from another.

          Is there any way to either

          a) Choose not to use an uploaded meta data on the ripper screen (case by case basis)
          or
          b) Choose to vote on the quality of the meta data currently uploaded for a particular disk

              You can do both a) and b). Click on the Meta Info button (upper right), then click on thumbs up or thumbs down or better, use the Report button. You can turn Meta Info off in Common Settings->Meta.

                  Being the contributor of all but 2 star trek next generation series blurays, I can tell that I've been very thorough in the data gathering for them. If you can't tell which track is what, then it points to some bug in the save/retrieval code of the metainfo system.

                  Anyway, I'm available to compare notes and help track down what happened.
