Correcting Bitzi Data
The data in Bitzi Tickets comes from a variety of sources,
but most is forwarded or contributed to us by volunteers,
in the course of using the catalog.
As a result, errors are possible – even common.
The good thing is that any registered Bitzi user can correct
most errors right away! Here's how...
In many if not most cases, this will cause the corrected information
to immediately take precedence in the Ticket summary. (Some Bitzi-using
applications will cache Tickets, though, and so the change may not
appear everywhere for a while.)
- Pull up the "Full Detail View" on the relevant file. This
view shows not just the Ticket summary information, but all
the individual tags of contributed information from which
the Ticket was created.
- Scroll to find the tag(s) which contain inaccurate,
misleading, or poorly-formatted information.
- Use the "Rate Tag Accuracy" links, at the top-right of
the tag display, to give the problem tags a negative credibility
rating: -- or -.
- Use the "Contribute your own tag about this file" option, near
the bottom of the page, to add a new tag of the same type, with
correct information. (You will be asked to preview and then confirm
your new tag.)
- Again, in the "Full Detail View," find your new tag and use
the "Rate Tag Accuracy" links to give your corrected tag a
positive credibility rating: ++
or + .
If there are conflicting corrections/ratings, the one with a
preponderance of user credibility votes wins. In the future,
registered users and customers with a demonstrated track
record of reliability in their contribution will be given
extra weight in their corrections.
If you see an error that cannot be corrected in this way,
for example a misleading "Creator" or "Publisher" message, or
other material in our Tickets, tags, or Sponsored Links that
violates Bitzi standards, please report the problem to our support
Be sure to include the full URL ("http://..." web address) where
you saw the problem. We'll investigate.
