The info on Daisuki (the streaming site) and Daisuki (the German shojo magazine) seem to have been mixed up:

company#3235

Links that are supposed to go to the Daisuki (the streaming site) go to the page of the magazine instead:

Hmm, this raised an old question: should we add magazines outside Japan and USA? Confused Either that, or we'd need a method to split companies.

I'm coming across this now after I tried to add Daisuki as "Internet Streaming" for the first series of Aikatsu. It seems the entries for the companies were split at some point:

Daisuki (German)
Daisuki (Japanese)

However, is there any way to even add credits to the latter normally? I got no indication of the two different companies when inputting, and the credit ended up being added to the German company.

Hmm, Yeah, even if you try to add an anime from Daisuke (Japanese)'s encyclopedia page, it ends up in the German one.

Can they be added on the Daisuki page, instead of the anime's page? Like how you can add cast and crew from either the anime page or the person page?

Well, there are two problems.
1) the entry form automatically treats anything in brackets as a precision.
2) even if you manually correct it back to "Daisuki (Japanese)" that doesn't actually exist since the "Japanese" is not a part of the company name but a disambiguation, and it looks like the code for selecting a disambiguated entry only currently works for people, not companies.

Are you sure this is not a company that is already in our database: Daisuki, Daisuki

It does seem possible:

[edit]

But dangit, it doesn't actually work - it reverts back to the German one.

Ooooh, what a mess... it's a result of the ability to split companies that I added in April 2013. I'm pretty sure at the time I made a forum post to say "beware of bugs" but I can't seem to find it.

Anyway, I fixed that issue; you can now enter "Daisuki (Japanese)" in the box.

Can I request a radio button to select the right company when there is a disambiguation, as there is for people? Currently you have to manually add the precision to the company name on the confirmation page every time (if you try to include it on the initial entry page, it is treated as a precision).
