Actually I am " a little bit" (at least first step) in erasing duplicates, correcting data and so on and recognized something which I am not sure about if it was done correctly or not (according to the rules):

In the database we have (at least)
#1 Kevin Burns
#2 Kevin Burns (1955)
#3 Kevin Patrick Burns

As far as I know the CLT can't separate the first two (or any with different BYs), so those together are allready counted with 595/1448 and the last "only" with 165/375

Now we have several profiles of "Battlestar Galactica". In some he is #1 (imo correct), but in some he is #3 (credited as "Kevin Burns"). As the counts can't separate with or w/o BY I am absolutely not sure, how many of each are part of the database, and as #3 is also crew-member of series like "Angel", but in the profiles listed as #1, I would like to know how to handle that confusion before I contribute countless corrections and all are declined.

We all know that the update-process doesn't replace #2 with #1 (or always: it doesn't replace a cast/crew-member with BY with one without). So altough this would be breaking the rules, imo all profiles where #3 is crew member, he should be replaced in the database (+ credited as #1).

I hope that this is not too confusing and you understand what I mean :-)
Tell me your opinion how to handle this....
