I think these 2 may be the same guy, comicvine has the same pic for both. Usually they note if someone goes under various names.

Hi mloptino,
Well-spotted - although they each have separate Wikipedia entries https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alex_Ni%C3%B1o and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerry_Talaoc). They're noted as contemporaries but I can't find any reference to them being the same person. We'll hold off on merging them for now, but if you find any extra info please let us know. In the meantime I'll merge those two Alex Niño pages. Thanks!

You guys have been busy! Thanks for pulling these out, merged most of these now. I'm a little hesitant to merge comic issues that don't both have identifying codes included in the submission just in case they're not exactly the same. We may be able to merge these at a later date.

What is the preferred practice here, especially as some comics write without the accents?

This can definitely be tricky. I usually look them up and go with how they spell their name on their own website, social media, or go with the most common spelling of their name across other sites.

When you guys merge these does all the info from both entries get combined? ie; link, image, etc?

When merged, all the submissions under that name get reassigned under the name we merge into, but the links and images don't get merged.

Thanks again!

I guess Dr Boots and I both had a lot of time on our hands to keep you guys busy.
What do you mean "both have identifying codes included" for the comic duplicates? Are you saying the Identifier numbers?

I've been noticing the accents over names a little more often. I know there is a shortcut on the keyboard to add them but I don't know where it is & where it should be correctly used. Sometimes I just cut and paste from another site with the accent already on there. That will only work if the accent is used correctly and in the right place.

@falsepriest, I would say that if two entries appear to be identical then they are identical. From my perspective as someone who enters data into the system, how am I to tell apart two seemingly identical versions of a given issue? Suppose I have a third edition. What should I do? Add a third almost- identical issue or update one, any one, of the other two? Assuming all of the data already in the system really do match with the hypothetical third edition then I'd be inclined to simply add "Third edition" to one of them at random.

What do you think? From a usage perspective for me this would mean that apparently identical entries are in fact duplicates, until someone enriches one so it no longer is an exact duplicate.

These look the same - the one without the image has more numbers in the UPC

Slowly getting through these. Apologies for the delay.

I would say that if two entries appear to be identical then they are identical.

This is why the Identifying Codes section is so important, often the best way to identify if two submissions are the same or if they are different printings, releases or whatever.

  • For that Shadows of the Future Past comics you mention for instance, one has a different cover (or cover variant) with a barcode?
  • For the V For Vendetta ones I'm wondering if the difference in UPC means that it is a different printing?
  • The cover of the Infinity duplicates differs a bit.

I agree with the above .. although I'd say that if the images are different then the entries are different. Same applies to the id codes. I found a couple of issues that were sparsely populated which I thought I could update .. but on investigation I discovered the images were slightly different to the covers of my version so .. they're different issues and I created a new entry. However, where they're the same then they're the same, that's what I think.

Just went through collection and added links, so shouldn't be too many more merges from me.

And these two series are not a series at all. Hush is actually a story from Batman 608-619 so I think these two should be simply removed

Thanks DrBoots and mlopinto, I've merged most of these now, apart from the 'Miracles' and 'Heart of Oak and Heads to Match' issues as one has a barcode and one doesn't I'd assume these are variants, correct?

Yes, they look like variants of each other. We're considering issues with & w/out barcodes variants of the same issue, right? I have been submitting them together with both images. Just as I have been doing with issues with variant covers by different artists.
Matt

I'm entering variants, reprints etc as new entries in their own right. I assume that's the right thing to do although I still have an issue with the way collections to single issues are connected.
