Safe to auto-merge identical titles?
Related to the Gardner Dozois collection was that for nearly all of the titles I found had two title records that were identical other than one was a parent of the other. If it seems safe it seems it would safe some work to to do a sweep for title records that are identical and to auto-merge them. Marc Kupper 22:25, 22 Dec 2006 (CST)
It would be nice to standardize user-generated tags.
- hard science fiction
- hard sf
- history of sf
- juvenile sf
- recursive sf
- meta sf
- 'young-adult humorous sf' -> 'humorous sf' + 'young-adult sf'
some one should probably come up with a standard then make some filters for input and run the filters on the existing tags.
