There's a new Springbank (DIe Schmiede 15 y.o.) added yesterday. Someone added a Springbank 1998 to the base today which is really the same bottling.

I denied the entry but still the bottle was added to the base. How can I remove this bottle?

You cant, only the admins can (for the moment). You can set one bottle inactive (Edit whisky > Details) so no-one can add it to their collection. 


Can you give me the whiskyids of the doubles (or the urls)?

Thanks !

http://whiskybase.com/whisky/50586/1998 is al opgenomen in de base als

http://whiskybase.com/whisky/50530/die-schmiede-15-jahre

Ik ben nog aan het mailen met "Die Schmiede" om er achter te komen of de fles nou gebotteld is in Schotland op de distilleerderij (zoals ze doen voorkomen) of toch elders. Als blijkt dat de botteling heeft plaatsgevonden in Duitsland moet de whisky worden verplaatst naar de (nieuwe?) bottelaar. Ook dat kan ik als specialist niet dus vraag ik je t.z.t. wel om hulp.

Groet'n,

Bert

Ik zie overigens dat de fles al door degene die hem heeft toegevoegd (Ordie) is toegevoegd aan zijn collectie.

Could one of the admins delete this whiskey please.

I set it inactive already.

It is a double entry to the following one which has more user connections.

Thanks! M@rio

I also had one to delete:
http://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/50703/caol-ila-port-askaig-12-years-old

put that in, but found an older one now at
http://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/36228/caol-ila-12-year-old-sms

seems to be somehow strange with Port Askaig, if I search the database, some are not there,
but are listet with the Speciality Drinks Ltd....

sorry & thanks,

Gunnar

Aergh. Double quotes do not work. :D

Anyhow - just my point of view from a large data/many-people work environment...
Adding destructive database editing - e.g. delete a bottle -  for a broad user-base (e.g. just specialists - there's about 20-30 of us now, which is a lot of users to allow destructuve editing to...), can be a dangerous step.
Shit happens and things go wrong (be it on a user, bug or hack/code side...). So limiting the super-power users, or distributing powers is usually a good idea...
My 0.02 cents.
c.


Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...

Ardbeg 1991 GM under ID 9216 can also be deleted. I have verified that it doesn't exist and have already deactivated it.

While we are at it: I do not think the Longrow 11 year old, 46% (id = 30637) exists either. Admittedly, it is difficult to prove a negative..

In the Four Roses Bottling lists there are two  Small Batch 2013 / 125th Anniversary Edition that look exactly the same to me. Could you have a quick look when you have a minute and delete one if needed. Cheers.

I accidentally added two bottles today which were already in the database, but under a slightly different description ("Islay Collection") so they didn't show up where I was looking in the sorted list of OB's:

I'll have to pay more attention next time, but for now could an admin please delete these again? I have already deactivated them.

Dear Specialists

It's not very efficient if you post the duplicates here. Please report the duplicates by editing the bottle that has to be deleted. Add a note in the comments field with the ID of the other bottle and deactivate the bottle after that.

I think this is the better way because we can alwasy see what has to be done.

Alright, thanks. Though I hope this was my first and only mistake.

Is it possible to merge two entries (double entries) so that tasting notes and scores don't get lost from one of the entries?

and


can be deleted.

I added them, but later discovered Whisky had added them previously, wrongly filed under Springbank, so I edited the old ones and deactivated these.
