Edit: I didn't add the 1979 to the top Robert Baker as I wasn't sure if I should leave it or change it so I went with the more cautious approach.

Edit: Looks like Trigger's birth year is finally accepted!

Trigger (1932-1965)
Roy Rogers' famous horse
Wiki
IMDB
Appeared in The Roy Rogers Show & about 80 or so movies, including My Pal Trigger, Under California Stars, Bells of San Angelo

Trigger - birth year unknown
Also a horse
Appeared in Moondance Alexander (2007)
IMDB
Cannot be the same horse because Roy's Trigger died in 42 years before the movie was made.  And was stuffed.
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.

Seems to be not accepted yet, because the contribution I saw it in is in "reviewing".

We can now vote on contributions with new Birth Years? Nice!

Sirs, I'm trying to understand birth years.

How does Invelos decide about a birth year? On a profile-by-profile basis? Title-by-title?

Is the absence of The Checkbox always proof enough that a birth year has already been accepted officially?

Is the status Received, instead of Reviewing, at all times proof enough that a birth year has already been accepted officially?

Should a contributer document that an added birth year is of the right of several persons with the same name?

If a BY isn't already in the database, you need to contribute one profile and include the documentation in the contribution notes (you basically need to show, that the BY is needed; have a look at some posts here to see what data to include). After that profile has been approved, post your documentation here in this thread. For all further contributions of that BY just include a link to the corresponding post.

AFAIK yes.

Quote:

I don't know, if I fully understand your sentence... You have to document, that there are two or more different persons with the same common name and provide for each of them at least two different links that contain a BY (preferably the same one ). You don't have to find a BY for every person, though.

Quote:

Since all users can now vote on contributions that are in "Reviewing", the mere statement isn't enough anymore – at least IMU.

Quote:

See above, if the BY checkbox isn't displayed, the BY is already in the database. Just try it out with a BY that's listed on this thread's first page and with an imaginary one.

EDIT: I'm not sure how I go about submitting this? I added the second onto the database and sent the profiles of the films he should be in to be checked. Is that the right way to do it?

You just need to submit this to one of your profiles with your complete documentation and Invelos will check and approve (or decline) it


It was declined. I think I may have forgotten to tick the BY box down the bottom when i subbmitted it (this may have been the reason but I'm not sure).

This was the reply:
"An invalid source, such as a third party database, was listed in the contribution notes. Use of a third party database is not allowed per the contribution rules".

What have I done wrong and I how do I stop myself from making this error again?

I know the Robert Baker in Old School, Greys Anatomy and the latest Indy film can't be the same one that was in the Bruce Lee movies as he wasn't even born when thos films were made so the Database needs another Robert Baker.

I don't know, seems to be ok...

Try to submit only the BY (i.e. don't make any other changes to the profile) to be sure that nothing else causes the decline – the replies are often very vaguely phrased... And prepend something like "added new BY to distinguish between two different Robert Baker's; documentation:" .

Well, I have contributed the 1979 birth year into my profiles by pasting the exact bit of documentation into my notes. Those contributions have been approved, so at least, you should have no problem propagating that birth year (now that it's accepted, no checkbox will appear for it anymore). I don't have the 1939 one in my database, so I can't help you there. But if your own documentation was enough to get one of those two birth years accepted, it should be enough for the other one to be accepted, too.
