All four of the films above have a big fancy ultimate edition and a mundane edition released around the same time, where the movie discs are identical but some of the other stuff is gone. As you can see, the listing format is inconsistent. Should we list the big ultimate edition with a note there's a special edition without the non-disc swag and a vanilla edition without the swag or disc 2 or should we give the ultimate, special and vanilla editions each their own listing?

IMO, each release should receive it's own listing and that's how I always do it personally as it can be confusing to users when we just add a note, especially when differences can be slight. More info is better than less and people can use the check box filter system to remove releases to help them look at the ones they are more interested in.
I work away a lot but I will reply to all PM's within a few days so please have patience!

I tend to agree but if you have spent an hour entering details for the Ultimate release
then it is tempting to just note "also available in a crappy bare bones edition which no one
who uses this site would buy unless they were completely off their head".

Actually, for me that depends if the additional extras are something interesting or not, for instance I wouldn't pay more for the "70th Anniversary Ultimate Collector's Edition" than the "Scarlett Edition" of Gone With The Wind above. Additionally dvd-extras and books are a plus but couldn't care a bit about film cells and memorabilia and digital copies and (most) CDs.
