Handle id #9897 : dmd

The full handle was Diamond Design but he changed to dmd in 2014. Perfectly OK, but it's not OK to rename the entry. Old handle entry created, I'm trying to restore older productions under the old handle now.
Edit: I've set the separation line at 30 November 2013, when he joined ATL, of course first hand information would be better.

So Diamond Design was the handle that got dmd as short form

dmd (not the same as the previous short form) can also be expressed as DMD

Is this right?

dmd = true;
DMD = false;

@Ian Coog:
And to be more precise, you have to assign all logos marked with a diamond (see AFL+HF Intro 02 as an example) to Diamond Design.

That's up to you to decide, I tried to restore a bad situation that you created. And for me it's more correct now than it was before. To me the whole change was not really needed at all as dmd is already the short form of Diamond Design.

of course first hand information would be better.

So you even stated that you have had no real clue about what you were doing. Well done!

That's up to you to decide

No, that's not true. I didn't split those entries. That was your decision. If you want to have multiple entries make sure the information is correctly splitted otherwise merge the entries again.

To me the whole change was not really needed

Restore the old data and everything is fine again.

the original intend and the consequences are quite correct - when someone changes his handle the old one should NOT get renamed.

@dmd: sorry but YOU are the one not having a clue how this database should be handled.
@theryk: There was already aka field and handleshort but he changed his entry deleting them, all is logged, and today he went forward deleting other fields.
I suggest mods to restore order and lock the entry for good.
I'm done fucking around with other's fault at doing things right.

ATL = Atlantis and Atlantis = ATL. 1 entry.
FLT = Fairlight and Fairlight = FLT. 1 entry.
GP = Genesis Project and Genesis Project = GP. 1 entry.

dmd = Diamond Design and Diamond Design = dmd. 2 entries.
Makes perfect sense. And thanks a lot for locking my information. It shows what kind of person you are.

what Dr.Strange said :)
topic was ok till post 2 or 3, then escalated quickly. I hope the best solution can be found soon. Compared to global warming, isis attacks, Kim Jong-un's bombs, etc is a rather small problem, so no need for blood ok?
