I am working through old copies of Kido magazine at the moment and this game already appears in our database. This should normally mean that I just pass on by but it is not so easy. Games have got into the database with the wrong result, wrong colours or wrong date, so I always check the number of moves and result first. This game had more moves on the game record than we previously thought (sometimes later printers do a thing like moves after 100 not recorded...) so I add the moves and we update the database, all for your benefit.

Best wishes. And I now hand you back to the studio...

Do you guys also hammer out inconsistencies, such as name or rank anachronisms (e.g. Takagawa Kaku being listed in some records as Shusaku many years before he changed his name, or Go Siegen being listed as 9d many years before his promotion) or uneven event naming conventions (e.g. sometimes saying "Ten-game match," other times saying "10-game match," or sometimes not saying it was a 10-game match at all)?

We spend a lot of time updating or correcting information ourselves, and we also have a little network of friends who have done large-scale checks, usually by writing programs specially. This is one good reason to procure theo latest editions.

However, it is always a work in progress, and the fail-safe for us is that there is also a wealth of extra info in the Names Dictionary and in the tournament data in the Encyclopaedia.
