By the way, this is no crusade. Just code. So, if there is some reason that I should legitimately consider profiles like these to be invalid, and thereby exclude them, then all I need are the criteria so that I can write the code. If you can describe how to identify the bad apples, I can write the code.

I mean, yes I can write "if a get a profile that is not in the list returned by the UPC call, then ignore it" ...

But why?
Thanks for your support.

And more interesting. The thumbnail link works for one profile, but gives an error on the other. WTF?????

Yet, the covers show when downloaded:

... but this screenshot shows a Region 4 Profile, which cannot be a US profile. - ??

Tell that to Invelos. Somehow the profiles must be cross-linked in the database. I didn't create those cover scans or the profiles.

No, I don't have any idea at all.

I did not analyze the online data base nor did I any other magic, I only took your CLTBoss CSV file, generated a CLTInfo CSV and compared them. These three profiles popped up.

Well there has to be some way to weed them out. I just gave one version before. Not in the UPC list, then ignore. But why?

If you enter the UPC into Gunnar's ContribLookup, you see, that all three of the US profiles were requested to be deleted. I assume they in fact got deleted - at least marked as deleted...

Does the API deliver any information about the validity of a data set??

Hey now, we are getting somewhere! You are telling me the WHY, so I am satisfied.

I just coded the HOW, and it worked.

So it is all good! 

Waddda team!

Danny DeVito expected 2562, I get 2564. 

Letting that go for the moment. Can't expect anybody to mess with that big a file.

I implemented a "bad apples" report that is saved out to disk. All the unique "hidden" locality 0 profile/UPCs that are in the database, but don't show up in the list of profiles connected to that UPC.

Here is the list so far, in case anybody wants to play with it. When CLTBoss is released, I might start a thread to keep track, in case Invelos ever is able to do some clean up.

On to more testing of the big boys and girls.

Thanks, do you really mean CSV, and not XML? Of course the CSV is a smaller file than the XML, and is basically a list of the profile IDs, so maybe easier to handle than the XML.

No, I did mean XML.

But CSV would be even handier: The first thing I do with a XML is importing it into Excel; and CSV would import faster...

Ok, here is one CSV and one text file as basically a list. The CSV file has the titles and some other info. Just two ways I can easily give you stuff, compare and next time (?) you can say which one you want.

Clint Eastwood CLT ProfileID List 3174 expecting 3173

Danny Devito profile IDs expecting 2562 got 2564

I don't care. UPC and locality is sufficient to compare.

But if you provide the locality in its numeric form, I'd need a translation table (CLTInfo shows them in a alphanumeric style). Can you provide this table, or is it downloadable anywhere

Question: What are the V... IDs at the end of the Danny DeVito file?

Some sort of DiscID, but they seem not to be comparable to CLTInfo disc IDs... - ?? - Thrrefore the short Danny-Devito-format is not sufficient
