Boxset: 2D or not 2D?

Hi,

Checking all my 33 boxsets, I noticed that most of the parents have a "Dimension" set, usually 2D (one time 2D + 3D).

A few (4) do not have anything specified.

I understand the logic of the rules is that nothing is specified at the parent level. However, based on what is in the DB and what would make sense, it may be better to have 2D. No sure what to do.

Before I make changes to have the same approach across my boxsets and get rejected, I'd like some opinions.

Thanks

I would agree with listing 2D.
It's about managing expectations of potential buyers of such box sets as far as I'm concerned. BTW the rules are not entirely consistent on this issue. E.g. while they explicitly forbid entering audio tracks on box set profiles, video format is not explicitly forbidden.

Not to mention Ken made an adjustment to the color field so that it could be more easily used for box set parents. So yes some of these fields has always been meant to be used forf box set parents. Just not the ones forbidden in the rules.

Thanks all.

I will make the changes to the 4 boxsets I have that do not have 2D and submit.

In the same range, should we have Color/BW set or not on the boxset.

We could imagine a set having B&W and color movies. In this case would we put both (as done with 2D and 3D)?

Again, several of the boxsets I have do not have Color set, so I am trying to determine the best logic.

yes... see my reply above where I talked about how Ken made adjustments to the field so we could do so. If the box set has both or even all 3 you check what applies.

I am sorry, I am not sure what you mean by the adjustments Ken made.

Ken's first version of the field was a one selection option. He changed it to a check box so you can check all included on box set parent profiles.
