Always has been, always will be  ;D
Transcriptions and NBI are merely finding aids.  They are NOT a substitute for original record entries.
Remember - "They'll be found when they want to be found" !!!

Nice to have lots of details so you can be completely sure who the child belonged to :)

Lovely to have "Joseph Soap, son of Mary Soap and Joseph Bloggs" rather than just "Mary Soap, chance child of Mary Soap". Then again it is whatever they were told, or what the vicar put down. Some mothers kept the father's identity a secret.

It is good that we can transcribe for FreeREG which is a brill site. I noticed that you can search all counties now with a date range, and even more than 250 results without the "There is more than 250 results, so please narrow your search".
Researching:

LONDON, Coombs, Roberts, Auber, Helsdon, Fradine, Morin, Goodacre
DORSET Coombs, Munday
NORFOLK Helsdon, Riches, Harbord, Budery
KENT Roberts, Goodacre
SUSSEX Walder, Boniface, Dinnage, Standen, Lee, Botten, Wickham, Jupp
SUFFOLK Titshall, Frost, Fairweather, Mayhew, Archer, Eade, Scarfe
DURHAM Stewart, Musgrave, Wilson, Forster
SCOTLAND Stewart in Selkirk
USA Musgrave, Saix
ESSEX Cornwell, Stock, Quilter, Lawrence, Whale, Clift
OXON Edgington, Smith, Inkpen, Snell, Batten, Brain

I noticed that! Having searched for a Smith family and having to break my search down into 10-year chunks, this is a great improvement!
