Good day good people.

I can't ever remember this being discussed before, (but please feel free to put in a link or comment below if it has and you can find it or remember anything about it).

Sometimes in the on-screen credits, two people are entered as one line; e.g. Producer: Abigail & Zack Smith.

How do we contribute these?  At present, the way this is done seems a bit haphazard.

(I'm assuming here it's not made more complicated by either of them having a different Common Name.)

Thanks.
Do you ever find yourself striving for perfection with an almost worthless attempt at it?  Guttermouth "Lemon Water".  Also, I include in my Profiler database VHS tapes, audio DVDs, audio books (cassettes and CDs) and video games (disk based and digital), as well as films and TV I've bought digitally.  So I'm an anarchist, deal with it.  Just be thankful I don't include most of my records and CDs etc in it too; don't think I haven't been tempted...

I seem to be in the minority here, but always thought we were supposed to keep credits as close as possible to what is on the screen. I know I have done the 2 as one person each, credited as both.

Minor issue though, just keep contributing either way.

I have to say this was my view too, but it seems to be in the minority here.  I also have to say that it does mean that when using the desktop version of Profiler, the Credited As entry appears in the 'box' where you can toggle between cast and crew, which I don't think is especially useful.

There is an issue with "credited as Abigail & Zack Smith" for both of them. If they are often credited like that then technically that can become the common name for both of them. So if one of them, for example Abigail, then appears alone, she should then be entered as Abigail & Zack Smith [credited as Abigail Smith].

A bit far fetched, maybe, and I guess we could make an exceptions from the common name in that case, but still it makes more sense, in my opinion, to enter them with their respective name only, and no credited as.
