    Naut asked me to make a topic for all the small mistakes on the site, so they'll all be in one place and can be fixed in one go occasionally. Think stuff like spelling mistakes, where the site still works but that can be fixed anyways.

    When adding an alternate title, Turkish is spelled as Turkisch.

    I'll post mistakes as I find them

    1) When clicking on a vault item that has the status "Hidden" (before the contest is 'announced') - if you don't have privileges to view the contest then an error message appears. All I remember is that this error message contains spelling mistakes!

    I don't know for sure what the rule is so I may be mistaken, when you go to the 'discover new movies'-section, you see the sentence: A unique Way to Discover Movies.

    Is is not supposed to be An unique way to discover movies?

    And what do you guys think of the use of capitals on the site?
    Some examples:
    - This Week´s Dual Movie Recommendation
    - A stylish Way to organize your Movie Collection
    - Our uttermost Respect goes out to these Fellows, who help us to keep the Show Running.

    IMO it would be better to just use capitals for names, at the start of a sentence, days, months and gods..

    unique has to be an 'a'. Because you pronounce it like it starts with a 'y'.
    Just like: 'a usual day'
    and: 'an unusual day'

    Thanks, I agree with you on the capitals though. The first sentence you gave every word starts with a capital. The second sentence does it a bit like the Germans where the nouns are capitalized. The third also, but also Running. I agree with you on the capitals for names, movie names most of the time every word starts with a capital though.

    Ok, got a mistake...
    Wanted to upload a title shot for The Devil's Tomb, but there were 6(!) of them(five were empty).
    So think that somebody glued his enter-button when creating this movie ;)

    so there are six movie pages for the devil's tomb.

    Another one:

    If you can enter the solution of a snapshot in Portuguese, the flag under the space to put the answer is from Portugal.

    The error here is that all the titles of these films are in Brazilian Portuguese. So, maybe the Brazilian flag would be better...

    I think I found a big bug:
    when you try upload a shot, you get all the shots from the same movie that are already in the archive. But it is not complete. I just uploaded a shot from a movie and an old upload I had made some times ago was not visible. But it is present when I search the movie in the regular way.

    That's probably what happened recently when I wasted an awesome upload with a shot that was actually a dupe. I am pretty sure that I did not see it when I uploaded my shot. (please tliff, give it back. I've put a shout on your account).

    I suddenly have problems with opening snapshots. When I click on it, I'm asked to "Safe" the snapshot or "Search" for a program to open it. When I click on "Search" the following website is opened:

    http://shell.windows.com/fileassoc/mimeassoc.asp?mime=application%2Fjson

    It says:

    File Association
    Windows has the following information about this MIME type. This page will help you find software needed to open your file.
    MIME Type: application/json
    Description: UnKnown
    Windows does not recognize this MIME type.
    You can search the following Web site for related software and information:

    Have questions? See these Frequently Asked Questions.

    When I click on Windows Live Search, they recommend "mimeapplication.net/json". I can download a program to fix something.

    Has anyone expierence with this problem? And can anyone help me with this? I'm using Windows Interet Explorer.

    Some little things I came across. I'm not calling them mistakes cause I can't always be shure it isn't the supposed behavior. Sorry, if they were already posted somewhere before:

    * When I circle through my own shots on the home-page (http://whatthemovie.com/home) the number of shouts is often not right, even on old shots. For example it says there were 2 shouts on http://whatthemovie.com/shot/87982 while there are actually 4. I couldn't figure out any sheme except the number of shouts according to homepage is never higher than the real one.

    * On the "Movie"-tab of movie pages there is an information on how many shots there are of the movie (in the bottom right corner next to the "show all"-link). It seems that vault-snapshots as well as title- and end-shots do not count although they are shown in the "Snapshots" section. Well they should, don't they?

    * When I shout on a shot and mark the shout as spoiler but can't solve the shot then I can't read my own shout later. This can be annoying, if someone responds to this shout on your profile and you do not remember what you wrote in the first place.

    * On movie pages you can choose genres in the info-section. The genres appear as a link and following the link leads you to the tag-search for the genre. I would suppose to be linked to some page where you can see a list of movies with the specified genre. But on the tag-search-page not even the movie that links there is found. So what is the reason for setting a link on the genre at all?

    This has been mentioned before I think, but when going through the random easy snapshots, this always includes ones own uploads too, even if you a) changed the settings to "don't show posted snapshots" and b) solve your own snapshot
    Would be nice if this could be changed. :)

    The bug mentionned by LePaposaure is very annoying. It has already been reported several times, and it cost me one awesome upload...
    imho it has been introduced when you included the contest shots in the movie shots. The count of the number of shots per movie is wrong and you miss some of them in the upload phase.

    Agree with agonistes too, but I could live with it :)

    When I enter a snapshot tag on the shot page a little cross appears next to the tag so I can delete it (even without being a high-rank user who can delete any tag). But if I use the tag-field while uploading a shot (the one that tells you about nudity and gore) then there is no cross next to the tags I entered. I think I should be able to delete them as well.
