Posted about it here and a few other posts in that thread, but nothing really got done, and I've got additional suggestions.

Can the Encyclopedia change these tasks to the following?

ADR Supervision ---> ADV Supervisor
BD Authoring ---> Blu-Ray Authoring
Blu-Ray Menu ---> Blu-Ray Menu Design (I've not seen this entered yet)
Blu-Ray Menus ---> Blu-Ray Menu Design (I've not seen this entered yet)
Blu-Ray QC ---> Blu-Ray Quality Control (I've not seen this entered yet)
Director, Video Post-Production ---> Video Post-Production Director
Dubbing ---> ADR Production or Recording Studio
Dubbing Director ---> ADR Director
Dubbing Producer ---> ADR Producer
Dubbing Studio ---> Recording Studio
Dub Production ---> ADR Production
DVD Author ---> DVD Authoring
DVD Menu ---> DVD Menu Design
DVD Menus ---> DVD Menu Design (This currently applies only to people, not companies.)
DVD Packaging ---> Packaging Design
DVD QC ---> DVD Quality Control
Manager, Video Post-Production ---> Video Post-Production Manager
Media Coordination ---> Media Coordinator
Menus ---> Menu Design
Packaging ---> Packaging Design
Project Translator ---> Translation
QC ---> Quality Control
Senior Video Editors ---> Senior Video Editor
Subtitler ---> Subtitling
Video Editors ---> Video Editing

When adding "Menu Design" for a company, can the encyclopedia stop displaying that as "DVD Menu Design"? It makes no sense at this point in time as the industry has now largely gone Blu-ray-only.

Also, these tasks I've seen have typos and need to be changed.

ADR Director (2019 Sentai Dub) ---> ADR Director (animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/error-report.php?code=AS-3809372026)
DVD Edtior ---> DVD Editing
Dialogie Editor ---> Dialogue Editing
DVDCompression ---> DVD Compression
Language Asset Coordinatory ---> Language Asset Coordinator
Prodiction Coordinator ---> Production Coordination
Production Assitant ---> Production Assistant
Subitling ---> Subtitling
Translation (episodes 141+) ---> Translation (anime#6236)
Translation (volumes 3+) ---> Translation (person#74988)
Video Post Production Director ---> Video Post-Production Director
Video Post Production Director ---> Video Post-Production Manager (I've not seen this yet)

Can these have changes to capitalization?

Assistant Producer
Associate Producer
Blu-Ray Production Assistant
Executive Producer
Production Manager
Recording Engineer

Can "Lead ADR Engineer" get displayed below "ADR Engineer"? If one adds Blu-ray and DVD disc credit info, it gets burried. Also, can "Voice Direction" either get displayed as "ADR Director" or get placed at the very top so it's not at the very bottom typically?

Lastly, can someone look into the suggestions made by kpossibles in this thread in the Encyclopedia forum?

I agree with almost all of these, except:

Quote:
ADR Supervision ---> ADV Supervisor

You mean "ADR Supervisor"? If so, agreed

Quote:
Dubbing ---> ADR Production or Recording Studio - Hmmm....
Dubbing Director ---> ADR Director - Hmmmmm
Dubbing Producer ---> ADR Producer
Dubbing Studio ---> Recording Studio
Dub Production ---> ADR Production

Should we be replacing all instances of "dubbing" with "ADR" ? ADR is now the standard in North America, but all dubs are ADR.

Quote:

Subtitler ---> Subtitling
Video Editors ---> Video Editing
DVD Edtior ---> DVD Editing
Dialogie Editor ---> Dialogue Editing


Should we be using titles, or verbs?
If we use the title "director," and not the verb "direction," shouldn't we use Subtitler, and Video Editor ?

Agreed. This is an old correction that seemed to make sense at the time, but was short-sighted and should never have been made.

Quote:

Hmm, there's a reason for specifying "Lead," I don't think it should be removed.

Quote:

It should be Voice Director, and it should be at the top. It can't be changed to ADR as "Voice Direction" could be in the original Japanese credits.

I've brought this to Dan's attention.

Some of those verbs are the result of the way the encyclopedia currently displays certain tasks. When you enter "Subtitles" for a person, it displays it as "Subtitling", when you enter "DVD Editor" it becomes "DVD Editing", or when you enter "Video Editor", it becomes "Video Editing". "Subtitler" is what FUNimation used on blog posts around 2014-2016 to describe the people that worked on the subtitles, but on the Blu-rays and DVDs themselves, they would be listed under "Subtitles". FUNimation to my knowledge hasn't posted blog posts like that in years though.

Also, with Lead ADR Engineer, I was referring to placement. You'd have it look like this.

ADR Engineer:
X
XX
XXX
Lead ADR Engineer:
X
XX

Currently, note where that appears on say this. It appears 23 tasks below the regular ADR Engineers because of all the Blu-ray and DVD information entered.

[Edit]After adding some manga credits, I've discovered another task that needs to be changed how it's displayed. E.I.C. needs to be displayed as "Editor-in-Chief". Examples can be found here.
