I try to keep track of all the duplicate names that come through the database, but there is one particular name that has always given me lots of trouble, so I am submitting a geeklist about this matter so that some other gamers might be able to help me. Perhaps some of you even know some of these people.

The troublesome duplicate name is David/Dave Martin. Back in 2009 there were 22 David Martins in the database, so perhaps we are making some progress.

Any additional middle initials/names, dates and/or places of birth or death, nationality and/or country-born, home area or region, primary non-game profession, and similar things like this would be helpful. (A person's date of birth is bit of a privacy matter but an approximate year or decade is helpful to avoid duplicate name problems and to give the reader some general information.)

For more David Martin information now mostly contained in this geeklist, see the following:
http://rpggeek.com/article/4102730#4102730
http://rpggeek.com/article/6723242#6723242

...

Most of our duplicate designer/artist (and company and item) name discussions can be found here:

http://rpggeek.com/thread/428532/there-can-be-only-one-the-d...

If anyone who finds something that may need to be merged or separated, please leave a note here whether it involves a board game, role-playing game, or video game item, person, company, etc.

...

stargate bob suggests that I post the URLs for BGG and RPGG, etc.

Avalon Hill example:

http://rpggeek.com/rpgpublisher/5/avalon-hill
http://videogamegeek.com/videogamepublisher/5/avalon-hill
http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgamepublisher/5/avalon-hill

Well, you might need to search in different locations, but I am sort of used to this.

For example, until just a little while ago when I split off one of the David Martins there was only one David Martin listed as a board game designer.

...

Some photos of these people would be nice as we don't have any visual identification for any of them yet.
