I'm wondering, for example, how one might straighten out:http://doghouse.bruji.com/movie/15030
Sono uses "Shion" on his official Twitter account now, so I would assume that's the currently correct 'spelling'.
I worked for a while at contributing to IMDb but quickly threw in the towel trying to deal with changing romanizations (I think it's called) of Korean and Chinese names. Japanese romanizations have stayed pretty consistent over time. I think his is just a personal choice and not one handed down from the Ministry of Culture.
Along these lines, I'm wondering if there are plans to implement a hyperlinked 'filter search' on the Doghouse Website similar to the one in dvdpedia, so you could click on a director and see all the available titles by him or her.
ps - Also wondering if I'm just missing them, or if and where "Original Title" is being displayed. A search for "Jisatsu saakuru" the original title for Suicide Club/Suicide Circle doesn't return any matches.
pps - Doghouse Help says "The only personal data uploaded is your 'My Rating' info to add to the cumulative Doghouse rating of an entry." How does that work? I mean, if a Title already exists in the Doghouse, should I also 'contribute' it just to get my rating added or would that simply create another redundant entry? Is there a way to simply add your Rating to a Title?
