Did DVDAF make any changes?

Did dvdaf make any changes to how they are making their listeings recently? Last week, under "owned" I had 153 titles and today I only have 146. I can't remember what I had for "listings" but I was wondering why it might have dropped 6 titles. I am at work so I cannot tell if there are any titles noticebally missing.

Probably because someone made a mistake like listing a bootleg, porn or an edition that does not really exist. To ensure entries retain the intended meaning make sure the correct information is in the database including studio, director and picture. Otherwise someone might "take it over" by supplying the missing information, or we may conclude it is not a legitimate title, consolidated it, etc... Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.

I'm guessing the movie was Air Bud? Anyways, this might have something to do with it. I saw a few titles like this on my friend's list. I'm not sure what's going on, somebody else can probably tell you.

They removed some bootelg/promo/bonus disc entries. Go to the Member Support section at the DVDAF boards and check out the DVDAF Scope thread. Some of the bonus discs will be added back. Things like SW Original Trilogy, BestBuy bonus discs, etc were deleted. It has been an ongoing discussion over there.

Ahh i see. Thanks for the help. I received about 8 dvds in total from various types of cereal so these might have been it.

I know they removed the single listing of the Indy bonus disc. I'm guessing they did this because these bonus discs could have easily been included within the movie themselves. Meaning that a 2-disc SE of anything could be counted as 2 titles and that wouldn't make sense.

I'd say the method of counting TV show box sets should change. I'd say that for every disc in the set, or at least for every 4-5 episodes, it should be counted as 1 title. So for example, the Stargate SG-1 sets contain 5 individual amary cases and each disc holds 4 or 5 episodes. While the Andromeda volumes have two discs and contain 4-5 episodes across those 2 discs. And those sets count as 1 title. But if you were to put the full season sets of Andromeda, you'd only get 1 title, when listing the individual 2-disc volumes, you'd get 5 per season.
