Any chance of moving this entire thread to the DVD Profiler Wiki?

You've forgotten to add the 2 actors called Bill Bailey to your first post! See my post on page 2 of this thread for birth years of both actors.

Also, birth years of three actors called Kevin Smith:

Kevin Smith - Australian - born 1953 (from the movie "Jindabyne"):

The larger portion of our birth years table contained only one entry per name, which should generally not be the case if the entry is correct.

As a one-time measure, we've purged the accepted birth years table of all questionable data.  All entries listed in this thread remain.  We'll be more closely scrutinizing new birth year submissions going forward and have added backtracking so we can research the additions if necessary.

Note that this purge does not affect existing profiles - only new submissions with changes to cast or crew.  In that case, if a cast/crew member has a birth year and there is no corresponding accepted entry (matched by name only), you'll get the extra checkbox section and will need to document the addition.

Is there any chance that people are going to start using the wiki for this instead of the thread, or should I just shut up?

While the wiki may be very nice, I personally prefer to have this data right here on Invelos' own website. But that's just me...

I'd prefer to have the wiki here on this website, but until that happens (and I've asked in the web forum), I still think this format is going to be cumbersome and ultimately will not scale.  But if that's what people want, so be it.

Give it some time. Rome was'nt build in one day. Perhaps the sign in holds some people back or are perhaps not used to the wiki and working with it.
Sources for one or more of the changes and/or additions were not submitted. Please include the sources for your changes in the contribution notes, especially for cast and crew additions.
