IMDB People plugin request
« on: November 29, 2009, 11:25:52 pm »
Hi,

I have a request regarding the IMDB People plugin.

Currently, it imports the list of alternative names (AKA's) in the original IMDB format; that is, with the AKA's separated by two spaces and a vertical-bar character, e.g. " | ". (Example: "Jane Doe | Janet Doe | Jane")

Could the plugin be modified to replace this separator with a comma and single-space, e.g. ", " (Example: "Jane Doe, Janet Doe, Jane")

I never liked the visual appearance of the IMDB vertical-bar separator, and using commas instead would more closely mirror the way multiple data items are entered in some other fields (genres, actors list for movie records, etc.).

(I suppose this could be made into a configurable option in the settings for the IMDB People plugin, in case some people prefer it the od way.)

Thanks,
Aimhere

I have a suggestion to the people section so as it's added now birthplace of person it is also added to the place of death of the person.

I have a proposal to add the main information and what is a person (for example, whether a particular person an actor, producer, director, etc. {example: Adam Goldberg (I) Actor | Producer | Director})

I have a proposal to add Appendix Spouse  (interesting personal family information,mine was very interesting, perhaps, or even for someone else) and Trivia (also interesting general information mine was very interesting, perhaps, or even for someone else) in section (field) Comments.

BTW:
I noticed that not more transfer Genre Data for People.
Is it just for me so, is the same for other users,not Genre data transfer.
