Fix me beautiful

@FlashyLamer: thanks for noticing! Sorry it's taking a small while, we stumbled into a bug on the admin backend. As soon as it's fixed, I'll get these paired.

I accidentally added https://demozoo.org/productions/191421/ by pressing enter too soon (while adding the entry for the Cookie 2018 demoparty). Could the prod-that-doesn't-exist please be removed?

exocet - 21:49 10 August 2018 #

porocyon: done!

AzzaroMWI - 11:54 16 August 2018 #

Peeps, could someone delete the location details from my profile?

The whole line starting with "Azzaro is originally from(...)".
https://demozoo.org/sceners/1025/

Thanks!

AzzaroMWI: Done!

https://demozoo.org/parties/405/ is a dupe of https://demozoo.org/parties/2963/ .. however, the results.txt in latter (2963) has incorrect character encoding/translation, the former (405) has correct encoding.

https://demozoo.org/graphics/191888/ Accidentally first uploaded the ANSI file as a screenshot and can't delete it.

exocet - 22:29 19 August 2018 #

ccr: thanks, we'll fix this.

se7en: deleted the faulty screenshot.

Please delete https://demozoo.org/groups/80943/

Ramses: Deleted.

More dupes:

https://demozoo.org/sceners/37789/ (Raupmies > Mike/wAMMA)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/19046/ (Excrement > Kakka/ACS^DMS..)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/31328/ (RAndominpiKKuvelI > Tug)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/38256/ (dupe of Random/Armada^Gfxile^..)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/13189/ (tArzAn > Tonic)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/68894/ (Mark I > Ganja)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/41433/ (Diper > Deepr)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/15472/ (Hoax > Hoaxi)

Addditional note to tArzAn's profile: I know there is no "magic" button for merging profile, tho it would be appreciated if anyone will do it beforehand. :)

menace - 04:05 23 August 2018 #

Yoik: Fabulous! Thanks for your continued efforts! However, in the tArzAn situation I believe it is intentional to keep the two separated. There are separate accounts for the two on most websites, including Pouët etc. For now I will leave it and consider it an easter egg for future sceners. :)

Please remove this wrong screenshot: https://media.demozoo.org/screens/o/b4/12/b38a.169267.png

from this prod: https://demozoo.org/graphics/192328/

I had nothing to do with these two prods:

https://demozoo.org/productions/191538/
https://demozoo.org/music/186867/

maybe there was someone else going by the name of shr00m ;)
at that time i´ve been homeless, had no computer, not even electricity! ;)

ltk_tscc - 15:32 9 September 2018 #

hArDy: I've changed it :)

menace - 16:00 9 September 2018 #

I also identified that other shrOOm, just to make sure no-one repeated the mistake. He is apparently from Canada.

mop - 09:31 13 September 2018 #

some proper news about this group: https://demozoo.org/groups/50943/

According to Stolen Data 6 the group was formed in Malta in February 1990 with 3 members: Cyber Pirate (packer), Dartagnan The Magician (code, gfx, swapper) and TC (gfx).

They worked with other Amiga factions of Axis under the label of Axis Incorporated.

In late 1990 they teamed up with Anarchy & Flash Productions to produce issue 6 of Stolen Data.

mop: Sorry for taking forever to get to this. Updated now with your text pretty much as-is. Thanks for the update, man!

porocyon - 19:03 23 September 2018 #

https://demozoo.org/sceners/71084/ "Also known as: K-T and the Kids" --> shouldn't this be a group instead?

porocyon - 12:17 24 September 2018 #

https://demozoo.org/sceners/81897/ Not sure if this is a different Sol than the ones already in the db, or someone else

porocyon - 12:20 24 September 2018 #

Looks like it was the spanish one (according to the edits from Yoik), please delete https://demozoo.org/sceners/81897/

Yoik - 18:57 24 September 2018 #

^even to add:

https://demozoo.org/sceners/81905/ (that's Horsenburger, it's his real name ;b )
https://demozoo.org/sceners/81908/ (dupe of TheRyk, nick already exists)

Oh, and here's more incoming:

https://demozoo.org/sceners/31332/ (RAllivaIhDE > Random)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/69150/ (kAIEErik > Nitro)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/15674/ (Paparazzi > McLad)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/31333/ (keLmUharppU > stRana)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/61126/ (Briteliten pikkuveljen isoveli > Britelite)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/75474/ (dupe of Warlock/Rule3^etc..)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/75468/ (Fade > dupe of Fade/Chrome)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/62370/ (Chill > Noa Nakai)

Yoik - 19:01 24 September 2018 #

About that "Briteliten.." nick, nevermind.. just leave it as it is since Britelite wanted to leave it anonymous.

grogon - 20:20 24 September 2018 #

https://demozoo.org/sceners/932/ - two different persons mixed.

mop - 21:12 25 September 2018 #

@menace will upload some rare stuff on this https://demozoo.org/groups/50943 as i am uncovering a load of old disks!

menace - 03:11 26 September 2018 #

Oooh boy, you guys have been busy! So, let's go.

porocyon:

K-T; I guess that only makes sense when and if his kids grow up to be actual sceners and start making releases :)
Sol deleted as per your request.

Yoik: For the future it's suuuuper useful if you link both profiles, which saves me some detective work :) All except the one that's TOTALLY NOT BRITELITE are now in the process of getting merged.

grogon: OK... and we're supposed to just figure it out from there? :) A little more information would be soopah.

@mop: Ooooh, old disks sound great - preservation matters! If you'd like to chat to us about how we can help, please come to http://slack.demozoo.org :)

Yoik - 16:15 26 September 2018 #

Menace: I'll try to put more details and links to both profiles next time before posting. Sorry about the lack of proofs. ;~;

Anyways, let's try again:

https://demozoo.org/sceners/81905/ > https://demozoo.org/sceners/68238/
(if you're okay and wouldn't mind adding that to Horsenburger profile, that's his real name.)

https://demozoo.org/sceners/81908/ > https://demozoo.org/sceners/23547/
(dupe of TheRyk/Arsenic^etc..)

porocyon - 19:35 26 September 2018 #

Menace: fair enough.

Also, https://demozoo.org/groups/75001/ should be deleted -- it's not a group, but the short form of https://demozoo.org/sceners/42531/ 's name.

grogon - 12:03 27 September 2018 #

@menace I think you can separate by groups:

Amiga coder:
Appendix
MadWizards
Dinx Project
Picco

Gfx guy (I think):
Royal
Fairlight

Yoik - 21:07 28 September 2018 #

https://demozoo.org/sceners/38752/
https://demozoo.org/sceners/38752/

Both profiles are dupes of this artist: https://demozoo.org/sceners/38078/. "SRG" is just a shortened form is the same artist (Sergeeo).

menace - 17:17 30 September 2018 #

Yoik: Thanks - having both profiles linked just makes my job of validating and fixing so much easier. Much appreciated! :) All fixed.

As for the SRG you give the same link twice and say "both" are dupes... :) Either way, killed THAT entry, if there is another one, let me know.

porocyon: Fixed.

Grogon: I hope you understand that I'm not trying to be difficult here, but the "I think" bits give me pause a little bit... I'm gonna dig into this and see if I can find actual proof to separate the two, to make sure we're doing stuff right. Thanks for bringing it to my attention all the same - I'll probably come to the same conclusion as you, but I just want to be sure that we're getting it right. I'll dive into it right now, hope to have reached a conclusion before the end of the evening.

Yoik - 18:00 30 September 2018 #

Menace: Oh, haha - sorry, I didn't notice that I added both of the same link for "SRG"!

Here's the other "Sergeeo" dupe =)
https://demozoo.org/sceners/40547/

menace - 04:18 1 October 2018 #

Grogon: Thru some friends, I managed to reach some of the people who worked with ALN on thos Fairlight demos, and was able to confirm they are indeed not the same person. Thanks for bringing this to our attention, so we could get it all figured out and confirmed. :) "our guy" is: https://demozoo.org/sceners/82055/

The Royal membership is a bit of an outlier - have not been able to find a reference to that from either the .pl nor the .us person, so for now I've taken it off both profiles. We can always re-add it when we find some more compelling, linkable proof either way.

Yoik: No problem, we've all been there - too much information, too little coffee. :D

grogon - 14:07 1 October 2018 #

@menace yeah, sure. I just could confirm the first one. The second guy is unknown to me so I just didn't like to suggest if it is accurate or not by any means.

Yoik - 18:48 4 October 2018 #

https://demozoo.org/sceners/68023/ > https://demozoo.org/sceners/967/

Yoik - 19:09 4 October 2018 #

https://demozoo.org/sceners/17641/ > https://demozoo.org/sceners/17213/

Dupes are gone.

Yoik - 13:57 9 October 2018 #

https://demozoo.org/sceners/13435/ > https://demozoo.org/sceners/27448/
(Weazle > Acideia; same person, different nick. Acidleia is Mikael's handle nowadays)

https://demozoo.org/sceners/7039/ - https://demozoo.org/sceners/13445/ > https://demozoo.org/sceners/19451/
(both dupes of the same musician)

menace - 04:19 10 October 2018 #

Yoik: Thanks for the continued de-duping! :) All fixed.

havoc - 08:13 12 October 2018 #

https://demozoo.org/productions/110478/ and https://demozoo.org/productions/36457/

are the same prod, in essence. the "big led screen" was a display from a karting hall's timing system, which was made by fox and goof and driven by 2 atari falcons.

ltk_tscc - 13:36 14 October 2018 #

Havoc: fixed.

Can someone nuke these off from the database? Most of these have nothing related to here whatsoever and have been recently added by a spambot or smth.

FlashyLamer - 16:40 14 October 2018 #

hey yoik, i was going to say that first :)

FlashyLamer - 17:30 14 October 2018 #

yoik: deleted finally, i guess

Yoik - 18:41 14 October 2018 #

FlashyLamer: Noticed that as well, they're finally all gone :)

menace - 06:54 15 October 2018 #

I think these got deleted as a result of a chat on our Slack channel yesterday - where y'all should hang, by the way - http://slack.demozoo.org :)
