I have just seen a contribution with a BY for Xander Berkeley as far as i can see this is not required but i have just done a test submission and the BY would appear to be approved (no check box) the BY is 1958 which is not the birth year for the one Xander Berkeley i can find, can anyone confirm if this is required or not


Is there any way to report such BYs to Invelos so that they can be removed from the whole database instead of one profile at a time

Via support ticket is the only way I know of. And include documentation to show that the BY is not needed.

Birth years are complicated, I do not understand them yet.

So it's good to know that a missing checkbox alone doesn't seem to be meaningful.

The fact that you find another Xander Berkeley with another BY seems to suggest that the BY may be needed after all. Where did you find the 1958 birthyear?

Xander Berkeley, 1958, looks to be the same as the one that IMDB has as born in 1954

On a slightly related topic, I just did an audit and noticed I have a BY for Sean Penn (1960) which I can easily confirm with weblinks. It is needed as there is another Sean Penn in "Death Tunnel" who I can only find an imdb page for.
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2206158/

I have Death Tunnel and can state as fact, it is a different person.

Also on the mind:
Why does Samuel L. Jackson's BY keep popping back up? I've erased it like 4 times already, and each time I do another audit with him in it, the BY is back! Guess I must've accepted an update that put it back, repeatedly.

Yeah, that one is pretty persistent - it seems to have spread to an awful lot of profiles. Bruce Willis' birth year is another one of these... And Xander Berkeley indeed doesn't seem to need a birth year either.

BY of Xander Berkeley 1955 is still in the Main Dbase because there is no checkbox appearance during submission. His name is added in the list on page one of this thread as an invalid BY. Why does this BY popping back up again. Same as  BY Samuel L. Jackson. See quoting bigdaddyhorse on  3 July 2010.

Because there is no way, for us, to remove them from the main database.  While we can remove them from individual profiles, it is still in the actor database.

There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.

I believe that once you have removed it from your local collection you just need to contribute the changed profile with all evidence to support the change which once accepted will remove the error. I did this with a New Tricks profile for some BY's that had made their way in and it corrected the main database.

As I said, that only removes the BY from the profile(s), it does not remove the BY from the actor database.  Only Ken can do that.

For those unneeded but approved BYs T!M has added a post in the BY thread:
http://www.invelos.com/Forums.aspx?task=viewtopic&topicID=250804&PageNum=1&messageID=562122#M562122
If finding others reporting to him or in the thread would be nice. Perhaps can will start in future a clean-up with this a starting point.

As addition to the other post. After downloading a profile with the BY in, the BY gets again into your local and all profiles with him in will have the BY added. So be careful.

Morgan Freeman and Bruce Willis keep cropping up over and over too, no matter how many times I remove them.

It seems Morgan Freeman birth year is indeed needed... from the birth year thread...

Morgan Freeman (1937) Actor, Bruce Almighty, Batman Begins, Wanted
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000151/
http://www.filmreference.com/film/24/Morgan-Freeman.html
http://www.nndb.com/people/982/000023913/


Morgan Freeman (????) Actor, The Big Hit, 54, Water Damage
http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0293532/

Granted we don't have the year for the other Morgan Freeman... but that don't change the fact the birth year is needed.
