Quoting GSyren:
The question is - are they legit? 50 popular movies released by one small media company, all with the same UPC. To me that sounds as legit as 50 one dollar bills with the same serial number. So they probably should not have been contributed at all.

Yes, they are legit. - At least this form of EAN is. It is usually used to sequentially number issues of periodicals (magazines, brochures, newspapers, etc.) -> see here.

It is one of DVDProfilers legacies, that an American programmer can't think of anything else but UPCs. Most of the other numbering schemes are compatible, some are not.

Because the space on the left side of the dot is smaller than the space on the right side.

If you interpret it in another way, it would be: I.A.L.Diamond - without any space!

The (only) purpose of the CLT was (is) to find the name an artist most often uses, the name we consider as his common name.

This is and will allways be the main issue to be solved by any CLT tool. And, therefore 364 is the correct count for Ziyi Zhang.

That said, I'm open to any information provided additionally... But the 366 example does not seem to be of any value, because it lists 364 Ziyi Zang profiles with two Zhang Ziyi profiles, which are rather randomly selected out 317 existing Zhang Ziyi profiles.

And yes, it was an idea popped up a while ago, to scan for all known name variants at once and leave the counting to the presentation part of a solution.
But this would mean a lot of extra work:
- there would be an array neede to collect all valid name variants
  - some help for the user entering them would be nice (eg. automatic flipping, removing middle initials, ...)
  - name variants that come up while scanning should be added automatically
  - ...
- then there would have to be single CLT call and scraping process for each and every name variant
- then the presentation tool would be requested to separate the whole bunch into the different variants and count them

I did not follow this idea, since, from my point of view it is more iportant to get a stable and futureproof CLT tool than getting high sophisticated new features. But it would save a lot of time, before setting up common name threads, if all the information for one person could be gathered with one single step

Just out of curiosity: Do you have an example, where the CLT respects double white space?

Remark: In my code snippet I need the replacement to remove the double spacing I inserted some lines above by the dumb concatenation for F+M+L.

Why the snippet: To clarify that it is not necessary, nor allowed, to compare the F/M/L fields, if there is CreditedAs entry given.

My opinion on taking care of double spacing: From the view of the pupose of the CLT it is a bug to differentiate between single and double spaces (I can't reference a rule forbiding double spaces, but I can't imagine any reason why this should be allowed within name fields, in none of them (F/M/L/CreditedAS).

Sorry, a few days offline...

Quoting mediadogg:
Man I hope you guys are not totally sick of me, but I am determined to get this damned thing right. If I were smarter, it would be faster. Sorry.

Anyways, is there anybody that can confirm how many profiles in this XML file have credits for "ziyi zhang" spelled exactly that way? (I know there are 366 profiles in the file. But do I really have two profiles with no valid credits???? If so, which two?)

I appreciate the help in advance. I am so dizzy with code variations and watching progress bars ...

As far as I can see, the two profiles are the German version of 4011976827085 and 4011976829584. Both Swiss profiles are complete crap:
- the EAN 401x belongs to Germany
- there are no swiss cover justifying a swiss locality profile for this titles
- the credits are either from the cover or from IMDb
- in one case the credited as is entered as role name

... but they are valid "Ziyi Zhang" profiles by the means of the CLT, both have FN="Ziyi", LN="Zhang" and CreditedAs=""

The German profiles, which are not listed by the CLT have a credited as entry CreditedAs="Zhang Ziyi", which makes them to profiles for "Zhang Ziyi" but they are NOT countable for "Ziyi Zhang"!

From this example 364 is the correct number of profiles.

There are multiple cases:
(1) - credited only in the creditedAs field
(2) - credited in both creditedAs and F/M/L
(3) - credited only in F/M/L
(4) - neither

F/M/L is only valid, if there is no CreditedAs entry...

Let me use a (syntactical wrong) meta program code:
if ( CreditedAs != "") then
  SearchString := CreditedAs
  SearchString := FirstName + " " + MiddleName + " " + LastName
// Remove unneeded spaces
SearchString := Regex.Replace( SearchString, "\s+", " ")
SearchString := Trim(SearchString)

I just checked all the credits for St. Vincent and he is not listed anywhere.

This was my last entry for this thread. The picture is clear: He is either credited as Dennis Schmidt-Foß or as DENNIS SCHMIDT-FOSS.

As Ken clarified here an totally capitalized SS can be converterd to a lower case ß.

Therefore the common name for him is:

Looking at the problem from a technical distance, it shows up as: Each and every disc can pop up under two different Disc IDs - one under Windows 10 and another one on any previous version of Windows.
Adding some other facts:
- It is not very likely Invelos will correct this behaviour (provide a workaround)
- since the problem was raised many Windows versions ago, it is not likely neither, that Microsoft will address this issue
- I don't think there is a tendency to downgrade Windows...

This means for me, we - the community - need to find a way to cope with the data problem!

The only way, I could imagine, to keep the functionality, would be to store both Disc IDs in parallel. A new Windows 10 ID in a seperate line (not replacing the existing Win7 ID but adding another line to the discs field), probably marked as "Main Feature W10"...

Tossing around the idea a little bit, a question: is there any need to replace an existing Disc ID at all?
- DiscIDs are read from disc, there can't be typos in it
- Inserting a wrong disc is most unlikely because it would rather complicate profiling it...
Topic Replies: 155, Topic Views: 8796
For the "main database": I'd assume that disc IDs are handled like any other data. If the data is overwritten by a contribution, it is overwritten - means the overwritten data is lost.
