Same group, different names, what should I do?

Post by Amour » Mon Mar 07, 2005 5:22 pm

Group [A] (with a few releases)

Group (with a few releases)

One day, they have a common project: [A&B] (with a few releases)

On another day, they fusion: [C] (with a few releases)

Should I create one single database entry for [A&B] and [C], using name [C]?
Or should I create two different entries?

Just use the tag they chose for each release (if they tagged it "A&B", use "A&B", if they tagged it "C", use "C").

Ok, so I create two different groups for [A&B] and [C].

Now there is two problems:

1) They have same irc channel/server of course, so the database doesn't want me to add [C]
[edit: solved, I just removed the previous channel/server entry]

2) They started an anime with episodes 01 and 02 as [A&B]. Then they continued episodes 03, 04, ... as [C]. When the anime is finished, we have two teams with status stalled. Should I creq :
- [A&B] has droped the anime, [C] has completed the anime?
- [A&B] and [C] both have droped the anime?
- [A&B] and [C] both have conpleted the anime?

thanks!

3) Should I mark [A&B] as a parent group of [C]?

2) Leave them "stalled" - can't be helped.

3) Sounds useful, so: yes.

For the curious: A is "Dragoon-no-Fansub", B is "Nihon-MangasAnimes" and C is "Sub No Kokoro".
