Hi guys I just registered 'couse I'm having hard time trying to upload my first srt file...

I created my srt (italian language) by editing (i.e. simply replacing only the text lines and mantaining original encoding) the corresponding srt from other language downloaded from Open Subtitles itself, errors are Unsupported subtitle format for CD 1. Only srt, sub, smi, txt and ssa formats are supported via web form and generic error via PC client.

Side note: I tried uploading just as anonymous...but I guess that's not significant, isn't?

Any idea? Thanks!

This error is triggered by the anti-spam system. Usually a URL inside the subs, but also many exact repetitions can trigger it.
Start with checking for these two possibilities.
If you still can't upload.
Upload the subtitle on some file sharing website like http://www.filedropper.com/ then leave the link to the subtitle here, and we will have a look.

You nailed it: as it turns out, I totally forgot to remove a tiny reference to the site from which I originally downloaded the english srt (the movie is portuguese, not dubbed), being not available here on Open Subtitles.

BTW how long usually it takes to show the new one in the list of available srts? I guess is going to be subject to prior verification, isn't?

Thanks

No, subtitles are not subject to prior verification.
After uploading it normally takes a few seconds to show in the list of available / last uploads.

Some of the subs for Miraculous - Tales of Ladybug . Cat Noir are incorrectly named or packed on https://www.opensubtitles.org/en/ssearc ... vie-482730 . For example, The Bubbler has the subs for MR. PIGEON in at least French, German and Italian; I didn't check any other languages. I tried and failed to fix this by following the guide from 2010, but whatever I tried resulted in the system reporting they already had that sub. The sublist is actually missing subs for MR. PIGEON but it refuses my attempts at uploading them, even!

I assume this issue arose due to inconsistent episode numbering from the various broadcasters.

Could someone provide a simple means to fix these wrong-packings?

The subtitles for the episode MR. PIGEON are here :
https://www.opensubtitles.org/en/search ... vie-448505

You only find them if you search MR. PIGEON.
But they appear as if they were the subtitles for ep.5.

The imdb for the ep is correct, it has the nr.imdb 5428718 which is the one from ep.6.
I tried to fix it but I couldn't, so we have to wait for the OS to fix the problem.
