J. Edgar -> Patrick M. Sullivan Jr.
The Kingdom -> Patrick M. Sullivan Jr.
Memoirs of a Geisha -> Patrick M. Sullivan, Jr.
Wanted -> Patrick Sullivan

Since Invelos filters combine the Jr. variants with and without comma it is most likely that the common name will be "Patrick M. Sullivan, Jr."
It all seems so stupid, it makes me want to give up!
But why should I give up, when it all seems so stupid?

Patrick Sullivan has 6 valid credits and 202 valid profiles in the database
Patrick M. Sullivan, Jr. has 6 valid credits and 175 valid profiles in the databas.
So, for now Patrick Sullivan is the common name.

???
Don't understand this conclusion.
If initials are involved (e.g. J.R. Ewing) the variants J.R. and J. R. count combined against JR.
It is said that this is because of the Invelos filter that automatically transcribes J.R. -> J. R.

If this is correct, wouldn't it be slightly more consistent to apply the same logic to the other automatic filter (Transcription of John Doe Jr. -> John Doe, Jr.)?
It all seems so stupid, it makes me want to give up!
But why should I give up, when it all seems so stupid?

I agree with Lewis_Prothero. Patrick M. Sullivan, Jr. must be the common name.

I agree as well

If I key Patrick/M./Sullivan Jr. in the name field Invelos forces the common name to be Patrick/M./Sullivan Jr.[Patrick M. Sullivan Jr.]

Also if I key in Patrick M. Sullivan Jr.[Patrick Sullivan] Invelos forces the common name to be Patrick M. Sullivan, Jr.[Patrick Sullivan]

Invelos overriding the common name in these cases as well as certain initial cases tells me that the Patrick M. Sullivan Jr. and Patrick M. Sullivan, Jr. we considered to be the same common name and should be counted together

It seems to me in any case where Invelos would alter the name field (common name) we should count them the same way for consistency. But we should only combine for cases where the filter forces a change.

No where in the rules does it state to combine any auto-filtered names together as a common name.

To determine whether to enter the name directly as credited, or to use the "Credited As" field, use the Credit Lookup tool.

so per the rule Patrick Sullivan in a tie but with the most profiles is the common name.

until there is a ruling from higher up, any personal thoughts on the issue mean nothing.

Nor is there in the rules on anything how we are to count titles.

We count TV seasons as 1 and we do not count fan/collective/anthology sets that have different titles, but the episodes are contained in a season set.  Unless I missed it, that is not in the rules or a ruling from Ken.  But is has been agreed to by many on this forum.

The simple fact is that since the filter forces two (or more in the initial cases)  different name variants to the same common name shows clear intent to me.

For what it is worth when I was asked to post this in the rules forum the results were 4-2 in favor of combining counts of the filter cases http://www.invelos.com/Forums.aspx?task=viewtopic&topicID=735451

Not that 4-2 is a clear consensus.  Many do not have access to that forum, and I would suspect only  those that care about common names and have access voted.
