I understand some of the reasoning behind going strictly with what is on a disc - and I also understand that from a quality control / accuracy and ease of consistent submissions standpoint, that does streamline things and make it a bit easier.
However, I'm also inclined to agree with user7 in this instance because there is solid logical reasoning for why naming them the way he suggests is more clear in a way, and better represents what those discs truly are. I am ALL for adding comments and additional details that explain variances and such.
As a user, when I am viewing and using the redump database, I'm looking at a disc and I want the title to tell me truly what the disc is. If the disc is a game called Fire: Pass the Torch [hypothetical game], and the disc has an error that says Fire: Ass the Torch, whereas all of the packaging and everything else is "Pass the Torch" - do we name it "Ass the Torch" in the database because it is literally on the disc, though it truly misrepresents what the game is? I do realize that is a somewhat ludicrous example, but hopefully it illustrates the point.
Another example is this one:
The serial listed on the disc is 972227, but it is an error and should be 97227. I believe the 'true' serial for this release is 97227. While the issue is noted in the comments, personally, I think the database should be 97227, as the extra digit one is completely erroneous.
I know it's a difficult balance, because creating exceptions based on unique situations does make this more challenging. But I also think it can provide other value and usefulness as well. Some of things will just have to evaluated on a case by case scenario.
IF you disagree with the above and have strong logical reasons for not doing so - that is completely fair - then please share those thoughts so we can hash it out and come to some finality on the issue and move forward - that would be great!
