Should the duplicates be deleted?

From: guwa | Posted: 09/08/2010 7:49:22 AM
By that, I mean the ones with a single ID difference (or two numbers, on a few cases) where one of them is quite obviously wrong. I'd personally be willing to sacrifice up to 54 legitimate IDs for the deletion of 54+ incorrect ones, but I'd like to hear some input first.

Also, to any of the old fetchers still around (room101, hotdogturtle?) they are all between 820000 and 960000. Would you have an explanation as to why they seem to be contained within this range?

Here they are, with the existing IDs for reference.

I have no idea why they would be like that. It could be that someone made a mistake while manually adding them and never deleted the incorrect one. I doubt that GameFAQs would have created two consecutive user IDs for a username, but then again, weirder things have happened. Still, the fact that they're all 1 digit apart makes them seem like it was human error, although I can't imagine why it would have happened.

Some of those are definitely also in my own archive.
I can't guarantee 100% accuracy, but when the manual adding first began, I checked a fair part of my archive against the database and found a lot of these minor discrepancies: Rock checked them out and I'm fairly sure I had the right ID and the database had the wrong one. In fact, those examples are probably still kicking around in the manual additions topic.
Unfortunately, I don't have access to my own archive at the moment, but when I do, I'll try and weed out a few dupes.
