Your DVD collectionEdit

Greetings! I noticed your DVD collection image, nice picture! If you are able to acquire DS9 Season 7 and the Voyager collection, we could put an image of the collection on our main DVD page. :) - Adm. Enzo Aquarius...I'm listening 23:20, 12 May 2007 (UTC)

Thanks for the suggestion. I was thinking about doing something like that, just wasn't sure what others would think. Besides, it may be best to wait when I have Voyager, Enterprise and the SE's so that it looks more complete. Hopefully I'll also have DS9 Season 7 soon, I have it on order, but it hasn't been easy getting it ever since those slimpack versions came out. -StalwartUK 07:12, 14 May 2007 (UTC)

Blu-ray regionsEdit

I switched the map back to the previous one, since yours has a small error in it. European interests in South America are region B, not A. - Archduk3 19:25, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Month linksEdit

Please note that month links (such as January) are in-universe links, and as such, should never be linked from realworld pages. The links on the Betamax page should link to the actual month of release. One method would be to do things as October, but it should never be simply October. -- sulfur (talk) 10:54, April 3, 2013 (UTC)

If that's the case then all the other video pages need to be changed too. I was just putting it down the way the LaserDisc/DVD/Blu-ray pages have been done. StalwartUK 18:16, April 3, 2013 (UTC)

Ayup, looks like they do. I'd suggest that we change them to link to the month/year with a pipe to the month name, such as: [[October 1980|October]]. Thoughts? -- sulfur (talk) 18:19, April 3, 2013 (UTC)

Good enough for me. StalwartUK 18:23, April 3, 2013 (UTC)

I've done the LaserDisc page, and I think that method there works well. -- sulfur (talk) 18:29, April 3, 2013 (UTC)

Home video releases Edit

I just wanted to take a moment to say the work you've been doing with the home video releases has been awesome. You're making the rest of us look bad, since it never even occurred to me to put a region 4 call in the video sidebar, so keep up the good work and all that jazz. :) - Archduk3 21:40, June 17, 2013 (UTC)

Disambiguate v Disambiguation templateEdit

When adding these templates, can you use the latter, as we're (slowly) phasing out the former. The intent is to simplify and use only a single style of template for these calls. Thanks! -- sulfur (talk) 16:21, August 23, 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up. StalwartUK 19:21, August 23, 2013 (UTC)

Re: TUC VHS cover Edit

With regard to that new cover and entry for Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, I'm fairly confident that is the rental edition, rather than an earlier retail release. This video suggests it is, and I have a very strong recollection of seeing that poster for the first time when I got TUC from my local rental store. The timeframe from theatrical release is too short, in my mind, for a retail copy at that time. I think the VHB prefix is an indicator as well (although I cannot verify that). That may suggest that the first entry for Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home may be a rental, as well, which would reconcile the problem of the two apparently identical entries there. -- Michael Warren | Talk 16:01, February 10, 2014 (UTC)

Yeah it seems like those releases are rental ones. It would explain their rarity. Thanks for pointing me to that video (not often I get to see the cassette). I've spotted other covers before (such as ones for Generations and First Contact) with "VHB" codes though that prefix is the only difference from the usual retail ones (same cover art and all). I'll update the page accordingly.
Those old TNG releases with different cover art I keep seeing must be rental releases as well as they too have "VHB" codes. For example here is Encounter at Farpoint. I've seen TAS releases from the 80s as well which were apparently for rental too though their codes appear to start with "VHR". StalwartUK 20:51, February 10, 2014 (UTC)
