Andrew Miller 9001 and 9016 should be removed, since they got a valid BY: http://www.invelos.com/Forums.aspx?task=viewtopic&topicID=250804&PageNum=245&messageID=2636504#M2636504 and the following post.

Some new headshots, most of them corrections and additions concerning out of the latest documented BYs and common names...

Headshots Only
Headshots and Profile which includes the source documentation.

This files includes headshots, which Imho are better than the ones included in v10. Why?
- better cropping (head only, but the whole head including most of the hair)
- better contrast (mostly less technical contrast which allows to recognize detail of the face)
- less makeup or role specific applications
- as naked as possible (no shades, no beards, no hats, etc.)
- shorter hair, to see the ears
- correct birth years (dummies for headshots not availlable, BY overlayed where no other BY needed in the same section - cast/crew)
- correct common names (common name overlayed where common name thread is conclusive)

Amongst many well documented BYs the following fake BYs are included:
David Brown 9030 (Cast)
Juan Fernández 9013 (Cast)
Juan Fernández 9016 (Cast)
Andrew Miller 9017 (Cast)
John Moore 9008 (Cast)
Dave Nelson 9001 (Cast&Crew)
Dave Nelson 9003 (Crew)
Stephen Thompson 9014 (Cast)
Jonathan Walker 9002 (Cast)
Andy Williams 9002 (Crew)
Andy Williams 9042 (Cast)
Paul Wilson 9000 (Cast)
Paul Wilson 9018 (Cast)

Any feedback welcome...

Hi,
I checked the last update from AiAustria and saw that the image of Jack Bannon was not the actor who was in the Imitation Game.  I corrected it locally and am never sure what to do about something like this .  There was a substantial age difference in this case and even a guess at the birth year would be better than nothing.  I notice that when ever I update the database birth years are often removed.  I know this has something to do with the rules but it seems removing valuable information should be prohibited.  I recall reading something about duplicates but what kind of proof needs to be submitted proving that there's not another actor with the same name?

Jack Bannon has a well documented BY here.

I don't fully understand what happened when you imported the headshots and I don't know how fundamental your knowledge is, but here some facts:
- I submitted headshots for both Jack Bannons (without a BY for the younger one and with BY=1940 for the elder)
- BYs which are documented in this thread are well documented and therefore valid to be used with DVD Profiler
- Lists to search for documented BYs are provided by Kluge and emmeli
- BYs are processed uppon import and download of profiles. I can imagine that there something failed when you imported the new headshots. But I can't say for sure...

First of all, you should check, if you have entries for both Jack Bannons. If you don't, create an entry for each of them and try to reimport the headshots...

I don't know if this helped. Feel free to ask any questions left open...

Hi again,
My apologies for not beginning my last post without expressing my thanks and admiration for all those who contribute to the database.  I'm a pretty casual user and previous attempts on my part to contribute where less than successful due to my unfamiliarity with the rules.
Rather than just do a blanket acceptance of an update I do compare and choose the image I prefer which is, I suspect, at variance with the rules.  I choose the image which for me is the most evocative of the actor with whom I'm familiar.  In the case of Jack Bannon I don't recall seeing two entries in the  update and just noticed the one and thought Javk Bannon was a much younger man.
Thanks again for your hard work.
Jim F.

BY 1919 for Richard Grant is wrong. - This was a mistake by IMDB; now IMDB lists 1928, which I documented here and wihich I'll contribute with my next headshot update.

The v10 delivers a Stephen Young (1931) which should be deleted, since his BY has been corrected to 1939:


The headshots for both correct BYs are included in my next update...

v10 delivers both Joel//McKinnon Miller and Joel/McKinnon/Miller (with two slightly different photos). Joel/McKinnon/Miller should be removed, since McKinnon Miller is the correct last name.

The v10 delivers Adam Harrington (9002). Since his BY=1978 is known meanwhile, this entry should be deleted.

There's no proof for the 1978 BY. In the list of accepted birth years there are two links for proof. One of them is IMDB where's no birth year named and the other is a website which does not exist anymore.

Without any solid proof, which I can't find, the 1978 birth year should be deleted as well until there are multiple sources which confirm the 1978 birth year.

For now I think you should enter Adam Harrington (1972) (and other variants) and Adam Harrington without a birth year.

Hmmm...

Though the BY=1978 is reasonable. He graduated from high school in 1996, which limits his BY between late 1977 and early 1978... (https://wellesleyeducationfoundation.org/Existing_bricks_listing.pdf; https://www.facebook.com/WellesleyPerformingArtsShowcase/; http://www.wellesleywestonmagazine.com/fall09/hollywood.htm)

I have to search some more...
