Fixed, thanks. The OCR loves to that with older games on rough video. Between 1/16 & 1/17 there could be more.

After looking at the beginning of the game saw Zanette introduced with two "T"s. The archive for her game 2 had Zanete with one "T" and I made all the changes. Then I saw Zanete as she signed in and it looks like 1 "T" as the archive previously had. :oops:

Google is not much help for either first name spelling.

What should I do about it?

Searching FamilySearch.org, I've concluded the one-T spelling is correct. There is a record of her having gotten married in Nevada and one of her living in Roseville in 2001, and one record of "Zanette" living in Maryland a little later, but if you Google the one-T spelling with her husband's last name, you get "people search" sites listing her in the same city in Maryland, whereas the two-T spelling with her husband's last name gets you no results.

As for how to archive it, while I know there's a nickname feature that indicates when the sign-in differs from how the contestant is introduced, I think the better move is to spell her name correctly everywhere and just give an indication on her player page that they misspelled it in the Chyron.

The real question is whether they only misspelled it the first day, and corrected it the second day. We already had her second appearance in the Archive, and whoever entered that used the one-T version, is that correct? She was first entered in late February 2013.

I've gone back and forth more than once today. Before today it was Zanete everywhere for the second game. Do we know who entered the second game? I don't have that one.

Well earlier than that, she was first entered in I think February 2009.

Reminds me of Dave Singleton, whose name was spelled correctly in his first game (on a Friday) but then misspelled when he lost the following Monday.

Based on what? Twyla Dignan, the next number up, is a 2013 player.

Sandwiched between 2013 players, Sara Garnett is the player entered before that '86 game was.

Not only that, but here's a link to a post upthread from February 2013 where you say the Zanete game isn't archived yet.

Just to have a little more fun with Zanete's name. I've archived the first segment and seeing her name repeatedly I'm now wondering if that is an accent mark about the Z?

A lot of extra jibber-jabber in the game with a lot of fueled by the episode becoming the Alex and Zanete show.

Don, Don, Don... :roll:

Ayds for the Myron debut list?

The players were 0/5 in TV and I only got the first 2 in real time. $600 was a beautiful trap that I avoided while only figuring it out just before Alex gave it.

$800 rings no bells.

$1000 I had nothing to ring in with although I was flirting with the right names while also thinking about Goofy/Donald or if I should pair someone with Jimmie.
