Inconsistent is probably a better word.
I am anal about a consistent Author and Title (Publisher) data
John Q. Author
John Q Author
Author, John Q.
Title: A series name (exception when Series Volume# is the title. Man Kinzin Wars: XI )
Don't get me started on Publisher ( chose them to pick on because all my books come direct from their source)
Baen Publishing Enterprises
I would really like a Tri-state Metadata fill choice: Always, Never, Only if blank/undefined
(Setting Series will set Index value)
I'm glad I am not the only one then that is picky!
I am like this with all my mp3 and movie files too. I keep a folder of files that have not been correctly named and only when I have them formatted as I want them do I move them into my libraries to watch or listen too.
Hmm, perhaps I am too OCD with my files!
But yes I agree with your suggestion. A metadata choice function would be a good idea.
