I recently rediscovered my interest in common name threads, like this.

If I add 'Frank McCarthy' as common name to 'Francis X. McCarthy' in Deep Impact saying "common name both by the finding thread and CLT" and get two no votes "McCarthy credit numbers are skewed by a large # of TV credits & 3 actors using this name. Don't trust the CLT on this without better proof." and "All Frank McCarthys are not Francis X Mcarthy":

Who is right?

"Right" is that this man's common name is Frank McCarthy. To propagate that common name, you point any naysayers to this thread.

If the common name is provided by a thread, I'd always liked to put the link in the contribution notes: Easy to check and you save the work for pm them.

I recently updated a newly purchased (for me) profile of Deep Impact as well, adding the proper common name of Frank McCarthy [Francis X. McCarthy] to the profile and linked to this thread. It went through without issue. Link to this thread in your contribution notes. The screeners will see it, see it's correct and override the no voters.

Thanks for confirming, Sir, being right is my only aspiration.

Implicitly helps no one.  It is and was very easily missed especially the way you phrased it.  There is a button on each message (purple, chain links) which will put the path to the message in the clipboard and you can paste it into you notes.

A simple copy paste would have saved a lot of messaging over the last couple days

Very true. If the common name I'm entering is based on a common name thread rather than CLT results, I will always link to it so the voters can follow the link and see the proper evidence of the common name. Just stating it's the common name leaves way too much open especially if the CLT results don't match up to what you're saying, and in that case, I do believe a cautious no vote would be justified.

And even now you are not convinced that the common name is right? At least you changed your nay-vote (because you doubted the stated positive CLT result) to neutral (despite the CLT result, the finding thread hint, and this discussion within the finding thread).

Oh, i'm convinced of the common name, only because i found this thread – your hint was no hint at all.  And i never, ever trust the CLT numbers (though i'll give the benefit of the doubt if one name dominates 75/25)

I Voted neutral because you made some other changes i don't like (valid but i don't like them).  Sorry if my Neutral keeps your yes count down but is was the best you were going to get.

Think of how much of my life, and yours and everyone who had to read this would have been saved had you used a link instead of a "hint".

The Guardian: The Final Season - Francis Xavier McCarthy Ep. 23
My one wish for the DVD Profiler online database: Ban or remove the disc-level profiles of TV season sets. It completely screws up/inflates the CLT.
FACT: Imdb is WRONG 70% of the time! Misspelled cast, incomplete cast, wrong cast/crew roles. So for those who want DVD Profiler to be "as perfect as Imdb", good luck with that.
Stop adding UNIT crew! They're invalid credits. Stop it!
