This is getting to be too much! Users need to show caution and read the forums so that duplicates can be prevented.

He is usually credited as Pat Morita, the Noriyuki part of his name is only in the Karate Kid films.

I made a page Steve McQueen (1) for the actor, and Steve McQueen (2) for the director.

"I made a page Steve McQueen (1) for the actor, and Steve McQueen (2) for the director.

https://www.filmo.gs/credit/19808-Steve-McQueen"

@BarryWallace Steve McQueen should be for the actor, Steve McQueen (2) for the Director and Steve McQueen (1) should be deleted. Any chance you could move your submissions to "Steve McQueen?"

Ok I think you already did.

Ok a few weren't done... Done.

Thanks!

Sorry i messed up and created a duplicate company.

@darksurprise: This is for credits duplicates!!!!
You can delete a double title by just using it for a new entry.

This topic is for duplicate credits. Please add duplicate movies and duplicate companies to the correct topic.

Just a reminder that you both need to move the credits to right profile or they wont delete it.

Please add duplicate movies and duplicate companies to the correct topic.

Where is the duplicate company topic?

Merged those dupes, thanks tsivihcra.

@Madir I'm not sure which one is better served as the origin here. Could you move the credits to the one that is correct (as per BarryWallace's suggestions).

This one was my fault. The page sometimes don't follow my typing (also when you add a film which starts with "The" it's difficult to enter the title). But this one can be deleted:

This one can be removed too, made a credit "The Kinks"

(correct latin spelling of his name, however, is 'Aamir Khan." Can you correct the tag to reflect this? I'm sorry to be a pain, but I just want to make sure that people can enter "Aamir Khan" into the window and find this guy. He's a major star in Hindi films. Thanks.)

Accidentally added this credit - please delete. This name has been added as an ANV now.
https://www.filmo.gs/credit/256038-r-w-paul

Incidentally, being able to see ANVs on the credits page would be handy.

Someone appears to have misspelt MGM Home Entertainement. It appears in various forms, with Inc. appended etc. This makes the dropdown option for this company cumbersome. Thanks

When I went to list my release of this film, I noticed what I thought were two releases of the same film. I didn't notice that one of these entries was a film; both entries had the same pictures. So I transferred the information I put on my "film" to the original film entry and added a poster from the original event. If you can get rid of my "film," I would greatly appreciate it.

There are a number of titles listed under the duplicate credits. They will no doubt have to be merged. Thanks.

Thanks tam89rds, merged these.
bartondavis, unfortunately I can't merge these as they're different doc types (credit vs. company). Not sure if we need the company name on the film as well as the release? Happy to get your feedback on this

Hi Guys,

Here's a duplicate. One is the man's name in Hindi and the other is the man's name in English. Now, that there is the possibility of name variations, we don't need to have more than one credit for credit names that are originally in a script other than Latin.

Correct: https://www.filmo.gs/credit/153279-anu-mlik

I've already merged the films under the incorrect entry into the correct one.

Merged all of those, thanks everyone.

There is no need to do this by hand unless there are name variations, our merging functionality takes care of moving the linked releases or credits over. Apologies if this wasn't clear.

That doesn't eliminate the problem. One can still look up, say, "Davis Byrne" and if there is actually a "Davis Byrne" that needs to be added as a credit, a user might think that credit is valid and use it.

Same thing goes for all the incorrect/invalid companies. They still pop up as options when a user is adding data. Seems very strange to keep those available.

Couldn't all of these error entries be archived somehow but not be available as options for users?

Merging removes the duplicate from the dropdown in the form (and from other searches). For instance Davis Byrne does not show up in the dropdown anymore. If you see instances of merged duplicates showing up in the search please let us know.

They aren't kept available and they shouldn't show up in search or in the dropdown in the form. In fact you shouldn't see the duplicates anywhere unless you have a direct link. (An exception is the Metro-Goldwyn-Meyer, where indexing issues are causing problems, but we hope to have that fixed shortly).

Couldn't all of these error entries be archived somehow but not be available as options for users?

They shouldn't be available. Try any of the merged duplicates listed above. Only the original should show up in the submission form. If you see exceptions please let us know.

These are already merged. Though I wonder if the first merge is correct. If you ask me Robin Wright Penn could also be an Alias like on Discogs. Links could be in profile.

Thanks all, these have been merged

merged or deleted those, thanks everyone.

"Douglas Macdonald" is an ANV for "Douglas MacDonald", which I added as a standalone credit by mistake.

Correct: https://www.filmo.gs/credit/300102-douglas-macdonald

Please delete. Wrong entry with typo. https://www.filmo.gs/credit/300190-arvu-nuut

https://www.filmo.gs/credit/26640-lisa-film (correct)
https://www.filmo.gs/credit/26641-lisa-film-karl-spiehs

In my opinion both are incorrect, since it’s a company. I think there should be a Company field on the Film form.

The second one is no company in this spelling. Karl Spiehs should be credited as producer seperately.

The second one is no company in this spelling. Karl Spiehs should be credited as producer seperately.

Yes, Karl Spiehs should be credited as producer, but Lisa Film shouldn’t. So both are incorrect. Lisa Film can be credited as Production Company on the release page.

I suggest to delete https://www.filmo.gs/credit/32097-yun-fat-chow

And keep
https://www.filmo.gs/credit/154106-chow-yun-fat

In Chinese, "last name" always comes first, and to have it inverted is creating a lot of confusion and dupes.
Films under https://www.filmo.gs/credit/32097-yun-fat-chow
Should be moved to
https://www.filmo.gs/credit/154106-chow-yun-fat

Cleaned the dupes:

Now with the main profile being correct, hopefully we will not get more dupes in the future (unless someone creates a profile in Chinese)

Not sure what is the consensus on Chow Yun Fat / Yun Fat Chow? Deleted or merged the other ones, thanks everyone.

Correct way of writing his name, as per Chinese rules but also on all releases is Chow Yun-fat.
The other way round is fully incorrect.
I do speak Chinese and edit many Chinese submissions on Discogs.

What I propose to maybe stop such a large influx of different duplicate credits is to have an A.K.A. section on an artist page to say what the person is otherwise known as. So when people are typing these credits in and not getting any results, it frustrates them. When you have at least something pop up under a different name, normally it drives somebody to think "is this the normal name that this person is known by?" and they investigate. Most likely this is the answer to their question and they'll pick it as their credit. Thereby reducing the amount of duplicate credits.

If something could be done similar to Discogs in that regard, that'd be sweet.

Not to mention, could it be possible to have a page function forums? It's a chore to either scroll to the bottom of this page or click to the bottom every time you want to put in an entry.
