Just to get some thing straight: Credits on Pouet are tied to user accounts. If a person is not registered at Pouet, no credits can be assigned to them. This is why your credit assignments were rejected on Pouet while Midget had no personal account there. No need to change nicknames because of that, as soon as there are two accounts with the same name you just need to be sure to assign the credits to the correct account. :)

The "other" Midget has no scener profile on Demozoo because she doesn't have any releases, so there is no confusion that needs to be avoided and no prods have to be re-assigned as you requested. All credits on [Midget's profile](https://demozoo.org/sceners/73840/) are assigned to the correct person. When adding an alternative handle, you can make it the default, no need to ask admins to do that. Anyway, I have done that for you. For existing prods, we prefer to keep the nickname the prod was released under, but they will all show up on the same page linked above.

https://demozoo.org/sceners/102926/ can be removed as it's a (typo'ed) dupe of https://demozoo.org/sceners/20207/ :)

Puola (https://demozoo.org/sceners/8686/) was not a person, it was a music group / project. It also wasn't a "demoscene thing", although the members were sceners.
I got permission to use a couple of the songs from their album Invisible Sightseeing (https://www.discogs.com/Puola-Invisible-Sightseeing/release/2661) for my demos back in the day.

Related, this https://demozoo.org/music/230803/ is not "AMIGA OCS/ECS music" (or "Noisetracker/Protracker" as claimed by Kestra). It's the song "Sunte" from the above-mentioned album, converted & played back using a custom audio streaming format ("like adpcm but shittier").

Puola has been converted to a group (so members of the group can be added now). I renamed the song and removed the platform tag.

I can't remove the old (lowercase) text files from https://demozoo.org/productions/205747. Please remove them, they come from the old version which was accidentally posted a month ago.

I can't remove dead links from my scener page. I talked Elfwood's creator, and he said he gave up on the site... it's been down for years, just he's keeping the domain pointed to nowhere I guess. When I removed a link the form said I still need to enter something... of course, there's nothing to enter. I did enter a new one or two and tried to put them in alphabetical order after my main homepage/homesite but it seems maybe the Demozoo code puts them in the order you want...

Okay, actually now I got it to work just in an older web browser (surprisingly)... but it seems three scene sites are only listed as 'WWW:' BitFellas, ModLand, and Trax In Space... I also upload art/music to the Internet Archive (archive.org) and code to SlackBuilds (SlackBuilds.org) which have their own favicons you could use but aren't so closely connected with Demoscene...

darwin: Well, right off the bat - a link would be nice, so we can actually know what profile you are talking about :)

To delete a link, there is a handy dandy little button to the right of the link in edit mode. Edits to the text are treated as edits to the text.

If a modland link is treated as a "www" then it is likely in a format we don't support, though that should be most of them. What particular mirror did you post the link from? In order to present favicons, the site currently needs to have support for the site in question, otherwise links are presented as www - as you noted.

https://demozoo.org/music/206470/ is a dupe of https://demozoo.org/music/167303/

rahow & slummy: All fixed. Some were already handled, in fact :)

Time for a new episode of "Well, actually...." :-D

The text on the TBL info page states that `They were the first group to win The Gathering demo competition two years in a row.`

However, this is only correct if you specify that it was the *same* TG demo compo two years in a row, seeing as
CNCD won the Amiga demo compo in 95 and the PC demo compo in 96. :)

And, of course, CNCD won the PC demo compo there in 97 as well, so that'd put them on equal terms with TBL if you for some reason were to specify "the same compo". (Granted the prize for the PC compo was handed out a few minutes after the one for the Amiga compo, but at that point we're _really_ splitting hairs).

Hi, there is group to delete:
https://demozoo.org/groups/87868/

For clarification: NAG was not a group, just my alter-ego:
https://demozoo.org/sceners/20529/

darwin - 02:51 17 September 2019 #

In reply to menace, my profile I was talking about is https://demozoo.org/sceners/39971/ ... didn't realize there were so many darwins now; on in the 1990s on Orange Juice there were only two...

Jukupliut is not a scener. Jukupliut ( https://demozoo.org/sceners/43379/ ) is a subgroup of Jumalauta ( https://demozoo.org/groups/1297/ ).

Jukupliut productions basically are just JML demos that are "suitable for all ages". So you can decide whether it's a different group or just goes under the "also known as" category.
