A question to the DB admins.
Problem: Characters in different franchises with the same name, e.g. http://gamewise.co/characters/549/Max
I wanted to edit this character for Sam & Max Hit the Road, but how can I if characters named "Max" appear in more than 10 different franchises (Advance Wars and Shining Force among others)?
So how are we supposed to add characters with the same name to the DB?
Should we add them as "Max (Sam & Max)", "Max (Advance Wars)", "Max (Shining Force") ...?
Or do you have a different solution in mind?
Your solution sounds ok. I thought of this problem, and figured it would pop up at some point, but here is another poroblem. If we go to that system of naming characters, we would have to scour the entire database for characters that are similarly named, and I know there are plenty. Maybe ioi or another higher-up has a better solution?
