Isn't there an automatic filter which takes an entry of J.J. Abrams and enters it as J. J. Abrams [J.J. Abrams].

So even though the "common name" may in fact be J.J. Abrams, the system will not allow it to be contributed as such.

Or am I losing my mind?

Nope, not losing your mind.  I think the point he was trying to make is that people are bypassing the filter and just entering J. J. Abrams skewing the CLT results.  Now I haven't tried it, but I guess that could mess up someone trying to contribute 'J.J. Abrams [Jeffrey Abrams]' .
No dictator, no invader can hold an imprisoned population by force of arms forever.
There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom.
Against this power, governments and tyrants and armies cannot stand.

We will teach it to them again.
Though it take a thousand years, we will be free.

If someone enters "J.J. Abrams [Jeffrey Abrams]" the filter will convert it to "J. J. Abrams [Jeffrey Abrams]"

In all cases when you enter in J.J.//Abrams into the common name field the common name gets converted by the filter to J./J./Abrams.

So when you enter in J.J.//Abrams it will never that way in the online database.  But the screen credit will always be preserved by the filter.

The actually Common Name is "J. J. Abrams" i cant find any other in the database.

You wrote that this thread is no common name thread, but disagree with the actual common name.

Because that is not the actual common name.  Based on all the credits I have seen, the actual common name is 'J.J. Abrams'.  The reason the CLT shows it as 'J. J. Abrams' is because that is how people have entered it.

So what is this thread all about?

This thread, as far as I can tell, is to point out that fact.


you are correct

Now Ken deleted the Filter making the spaces. So you can now change it again everywhere to J.J. Abrams and it will work, his real common name.

just contributed another Lost profile with just J.J. Abrams to match screen credit and the auto-filter still adds J. J. Abrams.

That's because Ken didn't delete this filter, SwissFilm misread his post.
