Reviewing names with the symbols '*' and '?'
I know as an indexer that if you cant decipher something, you should replace a single character with a '?' and if its several characters, with an '*'. This has worked for me in every situation.
I also know as a reviewer that we should do our best to decipher the characters marked by '*' and '?'. I have done so, and cant remember having an issue with this as far back as I can remember.
What Im worried about is running into an situation where the indexer has left those markings for me as a reviewer to go over and I still cant tell what the letter/number is. Does anyone have any idea what I should do? Or does anyone have any methods that they have been using for these situations in the past?
I think this is something thats probably crossed our minds at some point. I cant remember anyone asking this question before, but Im sorry if it has.
