We generally avoid listing the dollar-store variety public domain DVD titles, since they are so numerous and the quality varies so much. We made exceptions for the Thunderbean releases and the two volumes of Uncensored Bosko
from Image Entertainment.
As for adding other region releases to the main listing... I am not sure yet. It's tough enough keeping track of the R1 releases.
Feel free to keep posting the contents in this thread, though.
I agree public domains DVDs should be avoided on the main list with the expecations you mentioned but if Warner Archive release happens of the Bosko cartoons I would remove the Image entertainent DVDs as you said you would do in the second post.
As for other regions release, I don't think that serves any purpose at all to include it at lest not when it comes to LTGC as they are same thing as in Europe minus handfuls of cartoons, and I do prefer the American releases myself even if I live in PAL country (Iceland), the first two volumes of LTGC were also divided into single DVDs releases. Using the same subtitles for individual DVDs as on LTGC.
But for the super Star series DVDs that are all double dips I don't think that serves much purpose eather for inclusion unless the idea is to complete the super Star series. Inlcuding that DVD that was only released in Europe. I don't know anything about about other none-American releases apart from LTGC and LTSS , I think they are mostly france or Japanes and didn't even make it to Iceland.
