I was just browsing the database and think I found a possible quirk. Some sceners tend to change their handles during their career. ADA does not seem to cater for this fact as I would it expect it too: when I click on a sceners handle I would like to see all their involvements, even under different handles. This could be achieved by introducing a person table in the database which links to the different handles.

I have noted the following multiple identities:
- Kenny (Haujobb) and Kenny Starr (Loveboat)
- Scout (C-Lous) and Kalms (TBL)
- DRF (Haujobb, no demo yet on ADA) and Fastjack (Haujobb)
- Owl, Timowl (Haujobb) and Des Moines (Loveboat)

There are more for sure! Feature request?

@noname: to be honest, i have this on my todo list for a long time already but A.D.A development is somewhat slow the last months. I will add this sometime in the future though as it is indeed a needed addition.

...top of mind right now...

1. rauling/batmangroup -> wind/tnc -> wind/network -> winden/network ;)

2. fiver/bizarre arts -> fiver/artwork -> fiver2/artwork -> fiver2/farbrausch

3. madfreak/anarchy (3ddemo2/anarchy) -> julius/anarchy (phychedelic/vd)

:) Seems like a massive task though. I've had quite a few handles myself. Maybe I changed them because I didn't want to be associated with those earlier releases?

z5: I didn't change handles, I used both at the same time actually. :D

@stingray: the title of this thread should have been "People with changing handles or different handles at the same time" then :)

Ofcourse, i only need those sceners that are present in the scener database. I think i have noted down a few at some point so i should check if i still have that list.

@doom: indeed, you're a nightmare for us poor webmasters. I think i "solved" it by adding you as Dr.Doom in all prods. And talking about nightmares, so is Xeron with all his different groups (Xeron & Bonkers, Dr. Doom & Xeron, ...) :o)

We all like to stylize and/or update our handles. We do it to annoy people who try to catalogue us. You're supposed to become involved and get to know your fellow sceners, not put us in some database so outsiders can study us and monitor what we do and what we release. The record of my scene career should be in the heads of those who know me and/or have actually seen my releases.

I may or may not be having a bad day. ;)

xeron: I think Dr. Pickle and Moped ran a couple of boards back in the day.
