Subject: List of MTG database errors   PostPosted: Sun Oct 20, 2013 12:34 pm Reply with quote

Note: This looks a lot neater when posted into notepad.

I have strenuously gone through the MTG database and have found a number of errors. I know this is not all of them but this should be most of them. Some cards listed have individual notes with them. These note are in ADDITION to the main error listed meaning they have more than one error.

Inconsistencies (Bulk)
    - Replace all instances of " [Ficha de Innistrad]" with " [Ficha]"
    - Replace all instances of " [Magic 2012 Token]" with " [Token]"
    - Replace all instances of " [New Phyrexia Token]" with " [Token]"
    - Replace all instances of " [Token Innistrad]" with " [Token]"
    - Replace all instances of " [Worldwake]" with " [Token]" EXCEPT for "Comet Storm [Worldwake]"
    - Replace "[Expanded Art]" on all cards with "[Extended Art]". Extended is the correct terminology.
    - Some cards use AE, some use Ae, and some use Æ. All cards technically should use Æ.
    - Some cards in the database have "Foil" in the card name. This is not needed since users can select foil as an option when selecting cards to add to their haves/wants.
    - All cards with "[Token]" in their card name have "Token" in the card type but not all cards with "Token" in the card type have "[Token]" in their card name. (Meaning that all cards with "Token" in the card type need "[Token]" added to the card name for consistency. A simple search for "Type - Creature Token" will bring up this list)
    - Cards with (The Helvault Experience) should be part of one of the Promos group.


Individual Inconsistencies..............Correction
    - Asalto/Violencia..................Asalto / Violencia

Wrong picture
    - Homunculus [Shards of Alara]....................................Promos
    - Laquatus's Champion [Torment] (After name correction above).....Promos.....Card pictured is not in English.


Other
    - Astral (PC Game) group - these cards are not physical cards and cannot be traded.
    - There isn't really a need for two promo lists. Promos are promos and they are already "mix n matched"; Combine these


Other - non errors (but nice to have)
    - The list of sets in the drop down menu is not very user friendly to newcomers. Needs sorted alphabetically instead of date added to TCO. If anything I'd only list the latest 2 additions to the site on top separated by a line and updated upon new releases.

Ok, I have already finished going through this list, and I think I have fixed all reported errors.

Regarding the Æ character, as this is not a standard character that you can find in most keyboards, I have replaced it instead with "AE", both uppercase, so that it's easier to search for those cards by name.

The promo cards are split into 2 sets just for practical reasons: there are too many of them for a single set, which would take too long to load and to browse anyways. So we'll keep them in two sets for now.

I'll see what I can do about the drop-down list of sets, though nobody had complained about that until now, so it does not seem to be bothering most people.

Ok, so, thanks a lot for this great job finding errors in our database!
And please anybody who finds any remaining errors, just post them here replying to this thread.

Thanks again.
