Documentation for what?

Does he need to document himself, why he changed the date?

I'd suggest the following if this happened to you: edit Colin Farrell (1938) to be Colin Farrell (1976) if you don't have the 1976 in your database yet.  That should make all of your Colin Farrells the more famous one.  .

Yes, this is the smarter way....
I now feel real stupid in fixing 10 profiles when it could have been just the one..........


I followed your advice... and then found out I had 4 British TV series and films with the 1938 one in and only 3 with the famous one

He wanted to add the BY, Achim. WITHOU documentation,how did he detremine the birthdate, pull it out of a hat or something. Why do I know this, Achim because I voted on the change, so YE he needs to document in the future, just as I would and and I would hope that you would. And that ALL users should demand from the Contributors and vote NO accordingly.

Why confused.

Yes, he wanted to add the birth year, (in fact, he already did). But why does he need documentation for that?

Just wanted to give you all an update so that you can correct yours. 
Maybe someone could also contribute the corrects. 
Sorry that I can't.... I collect actor Birth Years along with head shots so that mean I am no longer able to submit cast information 


For all I care he could enter 1492, as he doesn't contribute it.

Because it was a CHANGE to the data, Achim    

Did he pull it out of a hat? Where did he get it?

I want correct data, and the ONLY way to be somewhat assured of that is providing your sources, Why do you have a problem with documentation.

Skip, will you please go back to page one and read the entire first post.  

He specifically said he doesn't want to contribute.

And for his local database he doesn't have to document anything.

My apologies then. It appears he had it up for vote and withdrew because of your comments.

Had you been less cryptic about it (his post didn't mention it and you only hinted, while being rather known for not reading entire posts by others) I would have understood sooner.

oh boy, warms everywhere and I cut myself on the opener............

ya_shin,  you are correct that I said I would not contribute any of these Colin Farrell changes.  But It turns out that I did because I noticed that I had some of the movies without any other Birth Years added...  But some of my Colin Farrell movies still have NOT been uploaded because I do have other actors with Birth Years in the profiles.

Skip, I don't have any YES or NO votes from you on these....  They are also all R2 profiles  (I think)


@ both of you...  don't mix this up with the 1941 Contrib a while back.........

Ron: I voted No on something from you on Colin Farrell BY and requested you to include Documetation, I think it was Bridge Too Far, but I won't swear to it, more likely to swear at it.

Nope wasn't 1941 awhile back, this was just thge last couple of days or so.

Then please do as Achim said and re-read my first post....
I never contributed "A Bridge Too Far", I ended up getting the Collin Farrell 1938 by downloading the update to that profile.....  (I think that one came from Rifter, which was a good Birth Year addition)

I started this thread to let everybody ´know to check / fix their profiles containing Colin Farrell 1976

Well, the ball is rolling. BY is added when necessary and should be "documented" somehow.

however, the more profiles(!) get BY added, the more they spread and eventually it will not be possible to trace the origin. Therefore Ken amended the Rules to cover that:

Quoting the Rules:
Quote:
If the birth year change is due to an accepted change to another profile, indicate that.

That is all we can do...

Bottom line:
If you (no one in particular) add the BY, tell the people why and where from.
If someone else did it before you,...

Great stuff Ken! And thanks for highlighting Achim.

I could see this going downhill as it is impossible to document something you have not added but has propagated though your database.

Glad common sense has prevailed and the issue has been removed.
