I follow the Geekfeed for new games quite religiously and I've been noticing duplicate game entries, moments of "isn't that already in the database?". This particularly happens with Warp Spawn games.

The spellings are different and I do not know whether this is being done innocently by new users or not so innocently by geekgold pirates.

Examples: Original game & duplicate entry

Typhoons & Turtleships & Typhoons & Turtleships
Storm Trooper & [thing=50694][/thing]
Prehistoric Warfare & [thing=50687][/thing]
Conquest of the Caribbean & Conquest of the Caribbean
StarWars DogFight & [thing=50509][/thing]

What's the procedure for dealing with duplication?
