One more time I am more than just a little bit annoyed by someone who thinks he/she has to "reform" several names without any sence...

I just got an update for a profile and the only change was the spelling of the name "Duval" now to "DuVal". Did you ever have similar problems?

Not every name starting with "Du..." or "De..." needs a capital letter after that and locking several updates only because of that reason for me is wasted time.

If there is a space between (like in "De Vito") then the capital letter is correct, but not every "Debit" has to be a "DeBit" and also not every "Macintosh" is a "MacIntosh".

So if you think that a change is neccessary because the name is written wrong, would you be so kind and check the actor/actress via Google, IMDB, Wikipedia first? This avoids senceless updates and the additional work to re-update the wrong spelling from the last update back to the correct one.

It's not going to change in your local database. Those types of changes only affect the contributors db. So if you have Duval and a contribution changes it to DuVal, your database will stay at Duval. Same with MacDonald/Macdonald, etc.
My one wish for the DVD Profiler online database: Ban or remove the disc-level profiles of TV season sets. It completely screws up/inflates the CLT.
FACT: Imdb is WRONG 70% of the time! Misspelled cast, incomplete cast, wrong cast/crew roles. So for those who want DVD Profiler to be "as perfect as Imdb", good luck with that.
Stop adding UNIT crew! They're invalid credits. Stop it!

These names are very old. I assume there was an automatic capitalization tool in action  - once upon a time...

Additional information to huskersports post:
- same for BYs which exist locally: they are kept
- if such differences are detected, a button "Optional Updates" is shown:

There you can see which amendments are skipped by default and you can manually import each of them into you local data base...
