Searching for The Judge (2014) comes up with about 20 Beavis and Butthead episodes... Getting tired :-(

@mjf314: the duplicate remover makes sure the correct movie is removed. If the duplicate movie URL is actually the correct movie URL, it will know.

Furthermore, the checks count should automatically be corrected. If not, we'll look into it.

Dislikes and favorites are merged. This is something that we'd like to look at in the future.

I just noticed that the film that I merged has the wrong check count. It says 1 check, but if I click the checks tab it shows 131 checks. Is that a bug or will it get updated automatically in a few days?

Does the duplicate-remover check to make sure that the correct movie was marked as a duplicate (since there's no guarantee that users will mark the correct one)? I remember several times in the past, the actual movie was merged into the duplicate, and then the actual movie was added to iCM, so there was a duplicate again. The actual movie should be the one with the correct IMDb link (not necessarily the one that has more checks), and the duplicate movie should be the one with an IMDb link that redirects.

Another question: What happens if you favorite a movie but dislike the duplicate? Which one gets preserved? (I'm not expecting people to do this, but I'm curious to know what would happen)

Edit: I just merged these:
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/lsd+insight+or+insanityquestion-1967/
https://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/lsd+insight+or+insanityquestion-1967-1/

The correct IMDb link got preserved, but now there's a -1 at the end of the URL. Maybe you should set it to preserve the one without the -1 (but I guess it's not really important).

It's working! 1st dupe snuffed out. It took about 5 hours for it to disappear.

Can we get a quick link to that somewhere, down there in contact/help vicinity maybe?

@insomnius: don't worry, if someone indicates that two films are duplicates when they're not, nothing happens.

Nice addition, but it makes me wonder if this will be abused by people who think it's funny to merge films that really aren't the same. Any way to stop this from happening?

@joachimt Yes, all information will be preserved (checks, favorites, dislikes, comments, etc etc)

Joachim brings up a good point. We humans are not perfect and even a slight mistake might...cost another film's page to oblivion, particularly the lesser-known films.

Great!
Question: Does the automatic merging make sure the checks from both pages are preserved? Some members may have checked the "wrong" page.
