Guidelines
  • This section records when a title was released to the public in a particular country. You need to select a country from the menu and then specify the release date via the day, month and year fields.
  • The attribute field is used to provide additional information on the type of release. An empty attributes field implies a nationwide release.
  • A list of the attributes currently being used can be displayed by clicking on the gray list icon ( ) next to the attribute field.
  • Please note that the year in the title is derived from the date of earliest release. This includes any festival release dates. With this in mind you can update the year by either adding a new release date or correcting an existing one.
  • Instructions on how to add/update release date information can be found here.

Ed,
Your answers (why 3? Can't you compact them into a single one?) are conflicting...

Anyway, I agree that Netflix showing sure must be considered in determining the earliest release date.
But there might be an issue in registering and supporting evidences for later claims.

The counter for replies goes up even if you edit a reply. So I stopped editing when I have a new thought. All of that was done not at the same time, but over the course of about 25 minutes. The first reply was, well first! The second took me a little bit of time to look up in the help section. The third was after I reread and realized that his comprehension of a simple deductive thought makes me think that he cannot make logical extrapolations and conclusions when reading the help pages.

Well, maybe wait for second thoughts before hitting the submit button! :)

Anyway, what is your position: do you agree with ACT's proposal? This is not clear from your posts above.

Vincent, its not a proposal.
It is strictly a question.
He was trying to find out information so as to disprove my submission on a release date that I submitted on behalf of someone on another post.
The only question he asked was
Are these Dates only for titles shown in Theaters or on TV ? ?
Does  Netflix qualify as shown publicly ? ?
The rest is copy and paste data. Above and Below.
This is an obvious answer to anyone with comprehensive skills.
If you'll notice he never really speaks/types anything of substance.
He supplies data.
He is very very good at it.
But he supplies that data as a first answer a lot of the time.
It sometimes gets an angry reply.
Today on the post I was referring to, the user replied back after ACT_1 posted his data, that said, "I already know all that"
ACT_1's reply was another barrage of links and did not address the question asked.
It was so far off base that one has to wonder if he can actually point people in the right direction at all.

Vincent read this whole thread. Don't forget to expand the view previous portions as it has been compacted by site admins at Sprinklr.

When you read this you'll see the point I am making. He cannot help and direct people to the correct topics.
He cannot make a conclusion about when his data is required and "WHEN" it is useful and is appropriate.
I have finally arrived at a conclusion that I won't address here at this time. I will use the direct contact method out of respect to ACT_1
