Heyyo!

I just created the first aggregate account for the games portion of the site. Tracking the average percentile for all games with more than 100 ratings. Hopefully I'll be able to keep it as up to date as AvgCrtckr does on the film side of things.

Over and Out.

I also added two new duplicate accounts and a new partial duplicate account.

I agree there are both pros and cons to ignoring accounts. This list is maintained for anyone who wants to avoid aggregate accounts or duplicate accounts for any reason. There is no judgment here. I have no issue with these accounts existing on this site, and I do utilize them sometimes by looking through their ratings etc.


Which ones are the new duplicate accounts?

Thanks AverageGames. I don't think I'll be adding aggregate accounts for games to the main list for now. Some people only use the movie side of the site and wouldn't need to get the updates for aggregate game accounts. I'm open to input from anyone on this though.

Thanks quartier. I'll add TheShiznit to the main list.

Regarding duplicate accounts, I had originally created a separate list for them in the opening post, but decided to remove that separate list to keep the thread focused. I actually have a list of some duplicate accounts still. I was debating whether to make a new thread for them. Is this something you're interested in me doing?

Oh and I'm adding some other aggregate users to the main list:

Film.com
RTomatoes

R Ebert
Roger_Ebert

About the duplicated accounts, I think is usefull to have the list. I would be happy taking a look.

I don't see a problem in the Roger Ebert's accounts, they are the ratings of one person right? If it was the ratings of his site after his death I would get it, but they are not... right?

I added IMDBTop250 to the main list.

Also...



Yes, you're correct that the Ebert accounts are (to my knowledge) just a collection of his personal ratings and are not a collection of ratings from his site before or after his death. The more I think about it, I agree that accounts like that don't belong on this list since they only pull from one person's ratings. However, if there is more than one account that collects an individual's ratings (such as the multiple Ebert accounts), I do think they could be included in the duplicate accounts list. So I have removed them from this list and added them to the duplicate accounts list.
