Tool for dividing or fuising characters in the db

Postby Xelloss » Sat Apr 16, 2016 5:30 am

It is very common to find characters that are the same with different entries in de db (I am not talking about alternative characters, but mistakes) or to find a character that it is indeed two chracters (as characters of dc post and pre flashpoint that nobody never separated), and to make changes in those cases is a very long work (you have to edit comic by comic deleting the character that is wrong, and adding the new one (or other one in case of fusing))

It would be great to have an option for this, to just fuse two characters automatically, or to have a quick list with two columns to choose in every appearense which one is the correct one (in case of dividing). Doing this with a script should be very easy (algorithm-ly speaking) while doing it manually can be a very long and tedious work...

Just an idea, ignore it if you find it stupid XD
