User participation

USER CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE FILM DATABASE

 
Users can contribute to enrich the film database by rating films,
proposing new titles, or by reviewing and providing information
for films to complement Mountain Film Database information.

User participation User contributions are a fundamental element for Mountain Film Database. As for the film database's content users can contribute by participating in different ways:
1. SAVING FILMS IN PERSONAL LISTS Saving films in personal lists: All registered users can save the films they wish in different personal lists:
 
• Favourites: To select the films you like best. This is a public list that will show in your User profile and in your channel.
 
Watchlist: To save films and watch them later. This is a private list only under your control. No one else can access it.
 
Mechanics to add or delete films from lists is the same. Button symbols will change from + to - depending on if the film has been added or not to the list. When the user clicks on the button with a + symbol he/she will be adding it to the list. With the - symbol he/she will be deleting it.
 

 

2. RATING FILMS Rating films: All registered users may rate films. Personal rating is just one for each film but may modify it when desired by voting again.
 
To rate a film you have to click on as many stars as you wish to give it. Whenever you poll, it will be registered as a final vote even if you voted previously. To delete a rate and leave the film without any rating you have to click on the red button with an x on the right-hand side of the stars.

3. ADDING FILMS Adding films: All registered users can propose new films to be added on to the film database. Proposed films will go into quarantine until they are reviewed by MFDB administration, whom will decide if they are to be added to the general database or discarded for not overcoming quarantine (see Adding films).

4. REVIEWING AND ADDING DATA TO FILMS Reviewing and adding data to films: We believe opinions and data that users provide about films are highly valuable because they give different viewpoints and they can be complementary, specially any existing information about the films. This is why we have reserved an area for users' contributions at the end of each film page, with:
 
User reviews: Opinions and film rating.
 
Added data: Complementary data to that on the film page.

 

 



 

 

 

 

User reviews

 
Reviews and opinions
KIND OF REVIEWS
User reviews section is meant for users to express personal opinions about any aspects of the film. They may be opinions giving a general evaluation but also comments on specific aspects of the film. These reviews will always be useful and constructive for the community if they are justified or have a reasoning.
 
User reviews section is only to express personal opinions. If you want to provide complementary information to the ones in the film page, you may do so via the Add data feature.
HOW IT WORKS Only registered users may leave reviews. Posted reviews will show in the film page and the user's name and data. Clicking on the user's name you'll access his/her profile and all his/her reviews on other films.
 
Once the review is sent it can be reviewed in the private area of My MFDB in the Film reviews section. A user may only leave one review for each film. Any new data you'll have to add by editing the review you already left.
USE RULES User reviews can never include:
 
• Insults, obscenities or resentful comments.
 
• One word comments. We like reasoned opinions.
 
• Non warned spoilers: Out of respect for those whom have not yet seen the films we ask you not to reveal any crucial aspects of the story line without warning.
 
• Telephone numbers, email addresses,website addresses...
 
• Any kind of commercial information.
 
• Upper case writing because it represents speaking loudly or shouting, which we want to avoid.
 
MFDB administration reserves the right to delete user reviews it may consider that don't respect use rules.

TYPE OF DATA
This participation space is thought for users to be able to offer complementary data that is not in the film's page. Provided data is sent directly to MFDB administration and studied and evaluated to be included in the film page. If it's data you are not too sure about it's important to mention this.
 
You should only send objective film data about any of the aspects the film page presents. Opinions or assessments should be sent via the User reviews feature.
HOW IT WORKS Data can be sent by both registered and non registered users. Users outside the community can then provide information that may be of special interest.
 
Comments can be sent in privately or publicly, choosing if they are stored or not at the end of each film page. If you check the Send data privately box, comments will be sent to MFDB administration but will not be published in the film's page.
 
As a precaution, we recommend you copy the comment's text before sending it because if you happen to enter the capcha incorrectly, the text will be deleted and you'll need to rewrite it.
USE RULES Comments in the Add data section can never include:
 
• Subjective assessments. May include data we are not totally sure about, but if so, you need to give warning.
 
• Non warned spoilers: Out of respect for those whom have not yet seen the films we ask you not to reveal any crucial aspects of the story line without warning.
 
• Telephone numbers, email addresses,website addresses...
 
• Any kind of commercial information.
 
• Upper case writing because it represents speaking loudly or shouting, which we want to avoid.
 
MFDB administration reserves the right to delete comments it may consider that don't respect use rules.
