What if you simply update the first post with the actor/BY pair and maybe one or two links (the actor's official site would be best) then have a link to the original post in the thread (or at least the page its on) that has the full detail of the BY

This is a good idea.  I think this is what I will do.
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.

Bruce Campbell (1958):
Original Contribution: Congo (097363303879)
This is to differentiate him from the other actor, with the same name, who stared in one episode of 'Stargate SG-1', one episode of 'The New Outer Limits' and the film Double Jeopardy.  I checked the Official Bruce Campbell website to make sure he did not star in those three projects.  No BY found for other Bruce Campbell though he won't be making any other films because he is deceased.

Sources for BY were:
http://tv.yahoo.com/contributor/29915/milestones
http://www.tv.com/bruce-campbell/person/8280/summary.html

Hello Unicus, this is a great idea. I was looking for this a while ago. 

I have a contribution accepted for Steve Harris:

Steve Harris (1965) - Actor
http://us.imdb.com/name/nm0004996/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Harris_%28actor%29

Steve Harris (1957)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Harris_%28musician%29
http://us.imdb.com/name/nm1064240/

Although,

I just noticed there was a typing error in wikipedia. In the article on the right, under the picture, the birthyear is listed as 1957. Upon reading the article, it states 1956. And IMDB apparently also lists 1956.

What is the best way to correct this typing error. Recontribute, and use what I mentioned here as source?

Regards

I'm not so much worried about Wikipedia. Only the fact that I contributed 1957 to the Invelos database when it should have been 1956.

I just want to correct my mistake  as soon as possible.

Correcting it would esentially create another entry for Steve Harris (1956). If you submitt the correction and get it approved, then PM Ken to have him remove the Steve Harris (1957) from the approved BY list. At least that's how I think you would do this.

Please let me know when/if this gets fixed.  I will wait to add him until then.

Here's a birth year I added for Bill Bailey (1964), a UK actor:
original notes: added birth year for Bill Bailey - taken from http://www.chortle.co.uk/comics/b/371/bill_bailey
as there is a Bill Bailey in the 1st 2 Christopher Reeve Superman films (no birth year found).


The Bill Bailey from the Superman movies was born in 1938.

Source for 1938 birth year - Mr Bailey himself! I e-mailed him, and he was kind enough to reply: "My birth year was 1938.  The confusion with the “other” Bill Bailey is because our union (Equity) was forced to drop its closed-shop clauses.  However, I remain the Equity member with the acting name “Bill Bailey.”  If you would like any further information, please either visit my website www.redbillbailey.com or write directly to me at this email address.  I am also Bill-Bailey-the-writer."

How many times do I need to explain this? Yes we do!! If you have the same name in your database twice, one WITH birth year, and one WITHOUT, everything seems fine. That is, until you find yourself having to restore your database from a backup (if it's not caused by a major crash, just try and imagine the moment you've bought yourself a new computer). As soon as you do that, both entries will have merged back into one - let alone the confusing end results you'll get when there are three people with the same name involved like here: DVD Profiler is just going to merge the Steve Harris-without-birth-year with one of the others, but we don't even know which one! I have this happen to me already, and it took me the better part of a full day to get everything sorted out again. So yes, as long as this isn't fixed, we certainly DO need a birth year for the third, even if we know the other two.

Actually we do, IMHO. Otherwise, how would a user easily know which Steve Harris is which?
