His handle is: "Yep, It's Me". Is he Trinitron or something? I'm sick and tired of restoring his "Mistakes"

As I explained to several others in PM's the corruption caused in my 3.01 collection was not correctable at the time because I had already removed my 2.5 beta backup.  I had asked if anyone had a way to recover from the online database entries at the time and received no helpful suggestions.  I deleted the corrupt crew entries and submitted only those profiles that did not exist at that time in the online database sans the crew listing.  I believe that all other information was complete and correct in those profiles.  To my knowledge I have not overwritten any valid crew data in the online database.  I had planned to update the crew information as time permitted to bring them back up to snuff.  I had several offers to assist in that area from those who PM and emailed me directly.  I felt that at that time it was just as important to get the majority of the profiles online to help build the new database so that those who either had the movies or purchased the movies would at least have 90% of the information.  If the crew data is so important to contributing an initial profile then it should be mandatory.  The rules state that the information must be correct not that it is required to submit or have profile contributions approved.  If it is the consensus of the group that profiles not be submitted without crew and cast information, then I suggest that we also suspend adding profiles of upcoming releases until such time as the DVD is released and the information can be added to the online database 100% accurate.  If you don't wish to update the crew data, then it is your right not to do so, I surely did not ask for your assistance.  I will refrain from any further contributions if that is what the group wishes.
Although, I will come to my own defense and state that it was better to not add bogus information than to add the corrupted garbage that was added to my profile database by the program bug like many others did.  I don't remember a thread from you on that topic. In addition, if you want to take shots, why not also ask why certain individuals insist on adding sale prices in the SRP field, and why some people do not have overview information, and why some people do not have either any video format or the incorrect video format information, the list goes on and on and on.

I have no information about this "Trinitron" of whom you reference.
My HANDLE IS NIGHTHAWKE and my picture is my avatar.  At least I am honest enough to show my own face and not hide behind an unlikely representation (I was brought up to look a man in the eye when I talked to him). Bye the way "Yep, It's Me" is a TAGLINE, not a Handle.  If you reviewed your own profile information you would know at least that much.  NightHawke is my alias (or handle) as it were and has significance to when I spent a little time in Southeast Asia back a few years ago.

Your statement is in error, the lack of crew information constitutes omission, not a "Mistake".  If I had submitted the garbage that I ended up with after the upgrade, that would have been truly a mistake.  As for now I will bow to the consensus of the group, but you have earned an honored position in my kill filter.
Wherever I go, there I am!?
