Preferred words (more release restriction awesomeness) #385
We already have required/ignored, now we should add preferred, which will be handled the same way, but we'll need a service to increase the value of a release over another when it contains a preferred term.
We should also have disapprove, disliked, unfavoured or disfavoured to signify we don't want something as much as another release.

I'm currently looking through the other cards, but this seems like it would help with an issue I'm having.
QI is aired in both normal (20 minute) and XL (40 minute) versions, with the XL version now being tagged/named as 'uncut'. As uncut isn't the same as proper, it isn't currently downloaded (as it is aired a day later).
Would this help in the instance; would a release of the same quality but with a preferred word replace a downloaded episode?
Comment from zoggy on Trello:
QL / XL / Uncut are the same show not different shows. which is why tvdb removed them.. could implement require/prefer/ignore 'tags' for each show (similar to whats in sb/couchpotato).
also another example to add for why prefer words should be in there.. is because for example in topgear there are VFR (variable frame rate) releases that come out after the fact.. for a lot of people these are highly preferred over the stock scene (constant frame rate) releases as top gear uses different frame rates in the studio than when airing recorded clips.
more info about VFR:
Studio sections + celebrity/Stig laps are shot at 50fps, while the films are shot at 25fps.
This VFR encodepresents each section at the correct framerate, so no bits are wasted,
and no unique frames are thrown out (like in the scene encode).
Comment from dephcon on Trello:
This would also be great for private indexers that do reposts with encrypted names to prevent takedowns. One of my indexers has reposts with the exact same name with "-RP" added to the end.
Being able to prefer these items would greatly save time and block-account data from having the original one download, fail, then retry the repost.
How about also introducing the notion of negation ! for use with restrictions on tags. Let's look a bit at set theory here.

It could be really nice to be able to put score to words (including negative score), and set a threshold where the file is automaticly replaced by a new one if there is a score difference. (like the proper).
For exemple, i'm french, i want to download the scene US version first.
Adding my notes from the forums.
The idea we're currently envisioning is a list of words and the ability to provide a score for those words, so you could give DTS a score of 10 and 5.1 a score of 5 if and any preferred words are added together. Quality would still trump preferred words, but preferred words would allow upgrading within the quality (similar to how propers upgrade within the same quality).
Grouping of qualities within the same profile would also play a role in this feature so you could have multiple qualities in the same group and preferred words could prioritize releases within that group of qualities, that is a separate feature: #1781
