Wondering how Criticker works, or have a question that doesn't seem to fit under requests or bugs?

How does Criticker handle the "Matt Smith" problem?

Bumping on this because it's relevant. I just added: https://www.criticker.com/tv/Rush-2008/

One of the creators is "Christopher Lee". But it's not the more well known deceased Christopher Lee. It's an Australian writer.

How does Criticker handle different people with the same name?

I encountered that problem before when 4 different James Murrays shared the same page, along with all their movies. I just reported it and it was quickly fixed.

Perhaps this sounds somewhat obvious, but there needs to be some site solution for this imo. The system should automatically flag a name where it could be multiple people and make submitters/editors choose the person rather than having to manually report it.

And a cog for when you're adding a new person to specify if it's someone else.
