Whoops, forgot the link to "Tom". https://demozoo.org/sceners/16367/
mnemotron, very sorry for the mix-up - i think there are two scener profiles mixed into one here. our atari expert will look into it and split off the atari info into a new profile.
also, we'll most certainly deal with the "tom" issue, thanks for pointing it out.
Alright, this: https://demozoo.org/productions/39273/ seems to be a dupe of this: https://demozoo.org/productions/20965/ they are basically the same demo, nothing is different.
...and to back my claim, taking a look here: https://www.pouet.net/groups.php?which=177 there is no synthesis demo from network that was ever released in the euskal demo party.
Defiance: Not sure I agree with that sentiment, and for sure - the fact that no-one added it to Pouet is not proof of much of anything. The results from Euskal clearly feature it.
I'll deep-dive more on the differences between v1.0 and v2.0 once I have a chance.
menace: I agree that this one is odd indeed. The euskal 98 party results feature it (https://files.scene.org/view/parties/1998/euskal98/results.txt) the demo is nowhere to be seen in the euskal 98 amiga demo folder on scene.org (https://files.scene.org/browse/parties/1998/euskal98/amiga/demo/) and all the prods, both on demozoo (https://demozoo.org/productions/39273/ , https://demozoo.org/productions/20965/) and pouet (https://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=3517) point to the assembly 98 prod (https://files.scene.org/get/parties/1998/assembly98/amigadem/synthesi.zip). It seems as if v.1.0 was lost in time and nobody bothered to upload it to scene.org and thus everyone linked everything to v.2.0 instead. Anyway, thanks for the heads-up! :)
Alright, I've done a little bit of research on this 'mystery' and here is my take on what happened: Network prepared and released 'Synthesys v.1.0' at euskal 98 for the amiga compo. This version is terribly buggy and crashes on the compo machine (basically they can't get it to run at all on it) so they drop out of the compo and ask the organizers to not include the buggy version with the rest of the amiga demos. There are other two amiga demos in the compo (three in total) so since they drop out, they rank last at 3rd place. The result remains in the euskal 98 result file but the buggy version never gets released to the public or uploaded to scene.org. Then they come back from the party, fix tons bugs and rerelease the same demo as 'Synthesis v2.0' in assembly 98. The demo works fine this time and ranks 3rd place among other seven amiga demos. This fixed version is uploaded to scene.org and released to the public. Most of this can be inferred from the credits rant at the end of 'Synthesis v2.0' plus with the help of a little bit of assumption. (Man, I love researching demoscene history, and imagine this started by me just wanting to post a youtube link and a couple of screenshots to find this prod quickly).
"...fix tons of bugs..."
I made an mistake will I'm trying to add https://demozoo.org/productions/154334/ to https://demozoo.org/parties/1882/#competition_16867
https://demozoo.org/productions/302800/ is a duplicate, please delete it.
I presume because there a lot of "Black Hole" named realeses, but I wan't able to find the good one in autocomplete list, sorry :/
@Bjorn: Someone already took care of it.
https://demozoo.org/sceners/65677/ is just the real name of https://demozoo.org/sceners/54681/, please delete.
https://demozoo.org/productions/28083/ is a dupe of https://demozoo.org/productions/196453/
https://demozoo.org/productions/28084/ is a dupe of https://demozoo.org/productions/196452/
https://demozoo.org/productions/28085/ is a dupe of https://demozoo.org/productions/196454/
https://demozoo.org/productions/49055/ is another dupe of https://demozoo.org/productions/196452/
In each case, you should delete the former and keep the latter, which is more accurate.
https://demozoo.org/parties/621 is, actually, NOT a dupe of https://demozoo.org/parties/3754, as I first thought. Party #3754 is the better known IBM OS/2 Warp Ad Compo, organized in May 1995 by FC, Accession, and IBM Finland, accepting remote entries around the world. Party #621 appears to be a different IBM OS/2 Warp Ad Compo, taking place in November 1995 in Hungary, if the file_id.diz in https://files.scene.org/view/parties/1995/ibmcompo95/demo/legwarpd.zip is reliable, and organized by IBM Hungary. It uses the same download folder as the other compo on scene.org, but legwarpd.zip seems to be the only entry available from the Hungarian compo.

I believe I fixed all of phoenix' requests. Hit us up if anything slipped through the cracks.
I gave the request a year ago, but https://demozoo.org/music/281493/ is a dupe of https://demozoo.org/music/6203/ that I up'd myself. I just didn't know the SID by the other name. :P
Please delete https://demozoo.org/productions/303667/, I created it accidently when I was trying to add https://demozoo.org/productions/223506/ to https://demozoo.org/productions/303666/ ..

Delete https://demozoo.org/music/303705/, I created the dupe by accident. Didn't know there it was already... :/
i created the dupe by accident, sorry...
There's a dupe. We tried to upload the same production at the same fraction of time
For Reflex ...
... "FR" is only an alias of "Jim Jack" and not a separate member.
Could you please correct that?
Here https://demozoo.org/productions/303819/ please delete second .nfo file (the older one).
https://demozoo.org/sceners/60196/ - delete, there wasn't someone named "Where?", they were asking "Graphics: Where?" in the info file. :)
Please remove https://demozoo.org/sceners/66621/
Dupe of https://demozoo.org/sceners/124855/
phoenix: done. that was really a funny one :P
Someone had already submitted Turbohyttynen BBS with the wrong name (Turbo Hyttynen). "Turbohyttynen BBS" is the correct spelling, so I suppose these two entries should be merged:
Otherwise all the info is correct on both.
This BBS was already listed under another entry as "also known as" https://demozoo.org/bbs/8126/ so it can probably be removed.
done (after moving things that were missing to the already listed BBS)
Merge https://demozoo.org/groups/19793/ and https://demozoo.org/groups/107604/, same group.
https://demozoo.org/groups/8270 - delete, "Fidion" is a misspelling of "Fiction".
Please read comment on one Cractro here.
We didn't as a group did it.
That was example of impersonation on scene.
Remove it from USSR group portofolio.
Please merge https://demozoo.org/productions/112519/ and https://demozoo.org/productions/111758/ as same production.
Proper name: Perestroyka
USSR was created after that.
Delete https://demozoo.org/music/305044/. Added the entry twice by accident.
https://demozoo.org/sceners/130008 - delete, turned out to be a duplicate
