Hi,
I've "Delete" it like this

http://www.gearogs.com/gear/19578-Delete-Delete

Delete all and write message in the note like

This gear is DUPLICATE
please use
http://www.gearogs.com/gear/4989-Audio-Technica-AT-LP120-USB
or
http://www.gearogs.com/gear/11438-Audio-Technica-AT-LP120-USB
Thanks

Hi folks. I have just had a chat with the team about this. The 'DUPLICATE' hack I started was ok for the beginning, but it is a bit rough for all the new submitters right now, and we should really be guarding against this in the form. We are going to make some modifications to the warning on the form today which hopefully will help, and we will look at making more long term solutions (auto dupe check, merge) over the coming weeks.

Thanks nik. I see that duplicates are still being added but I will not document them in this thread at this time. Perhaps later tonight I can.

Wow, so nice to see all the new users! Over 3,000 and counting based on the ad at Discogs. Will probably see about 5,000 by the end of the day!

Thanks! I have just worked over Technics http://www.gearogs.com/maker/3077-Technics?page=4

Putting [DUPLICATE] at the start of the model name lists them all at the end of any list, which is nice!

I've used [DUPLICATE]
but in these days duplicates in DB are very numerous and this compromises the integrity of the data base : (

We hope in new features on "Makers" o "Gears" input

Let's just add [DUPLICATE] to the Model field for now. We will work out a proper merge function and duplicate check soon.

Just to update everyone, we have made a tweak that should slow down the duplicate entries. There are obviously a bunch to clean up now, and we will be working on a way to do that nicely over the next couple of weeks. Thanks for your patience here!

maybe the argument here is that he replaced the tonearm in the 27534
i think that if there is a duplicate detected it should dump you on to the main view item page without letting you even hit enter but thats just me

I don't think changing an tone-arm is valid for a new entry, otherwise we'd have an infinite amount of permutations, that isn't workable.

We'll see what we can build. We want it to be as user friendly as possible of course :-)

What are the criteria for a duplicate? When is something considered a different variant of a model worth a separate entry, or when the variation should just be mentioned in the notes?

https://www.gearogs.com/gear/3961-AKG-DUPLICATE-D-90-S
This one was twice been stripped of all it's input, but is marketed as a set of 4 mics in colour.
No information was merged, it was just replaced by: "DUPLICATE, please FOLLOW/EDIT
https://www.gearogs.com/gear/1477-AKG-D90S"

Shouldn't the information be merged, instead of just removed, or isn't it enought to mark it as [DUPLICATE]? A revert function isn't here yet to recover lost information (can just be done by hand by using history)

The specific case has a different impedance as the one already present in the db. I'm not sure if this is by error or not. My D 90 S has been marked on the microphone (engraved in metal) that it is a 200 ohms mic. I know of an earlier version of the D 90 (S) which is a total different model. For that reason I think it should be researched/discussed a bit more before stripping the submission, especially if the submitter refers to the other version and seemed to be aware of the already existing D 90 S in the db.

I reverted the above sub once, but would like some opinions before doing it again. Although it's easier to compare subs without the data removed...

IMO that is not a duplicate. Also, the info does not need to be stripped like that, even if it is a duplicate.

Hi Nik,
can you run another delete [DUPLICATE] script ?

Hi! The duplicate merge system isn't a script, I have to select and do each one :-)

I have done a couple of hours of merging, will do more soon! Thanks!

I'm not sure if those Andromeda A6 are dupes, the second link seems to be for the red model.

Hi there,

could you please merge the two makers TAMA and Tama:

https://www.gearogs.com/maker/9491-Tama
https://www.gearogs.com/maker/63509-Tama

into the one with logo and profile, somehow I managed to add a new device to a second brand instance, because I changed the name "TAMA Techstar" to "TAMA" as "techstar" is just a product line of TAMA which might confuse people, see also profile description content.

THANKS!

Merged that first one thanks for the heads up @noiseoperator. Unsure about the second one, someone seems to be making a distinction between the company and the brand. Dunno if that is significant?

Hi noiseoperator

"Lake People" is a Brand, whereas "Lake People electronic GmbH" is a Company. These are catalogued as separate things here, same as on Discogs.

I removed the sole entry at https://www.gearogs.com/maker/62383-Audio-Technica

Blank profiles remain in the database at the moment, this is something we'll likely work on to improve.

Thanks!
