Blade Runner: Black Lotus Voice Actor Credits

For the past several weeks, I have been editing the cast credits for the animated series Blade Runner: Black Lotus, which airs Saturday nights on Adult Swim. Lately, though, I have been having some problems getting credits to go through - specifically with deleting names from episodes. The cast list for each of the eight episodes that have aired so far only include cast members who appear in each episode, with no actors being given "credit only" distinction. For the first five episodes, I was deleting names from the IMDb cast section without problem, listing “Actor does not provide voice to episode and is not listed in the credits.” in the explanation box. Starting with episode six, however, IMDb has refused to delete several actors from the cast list who do not appear in the episode, even with the explanation in the box and links to the credits for each episode on Adult Swim's website. 

Is there anything I need to do differently to get these credits to go through? Because I can't think of anything.

If you want, the two episodes giving me problems right now are Episode 6 "The Persistence of Memory" https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/211229-073719-322000/?ref_=ra_his_wa

and Episode 8 "The Davis Report"

Thank you.

Hi constantine_booras -

I just reviewed these credit requests and can confirm that the incorrect English Voice credits for episode #1.6 and #1.8 have since been removed. 

Cheers!

Did you try a simple cast screenshot? I only deleted the erroneous credits for episode 7 of this series (I usually don't do things if someone else is on it) and though it was pending for days they were approved, all i used was a imgur link of the cast credits, I feel good old screengrabs get things done better tho a video link accompanying it doesn't hurt. Though really your evidence should have been enough, the site can mistakenly decline things it shouldn't, I've been needing 2 or 3 tries to get a few things approved lately and I didn't change the submission to do it, so it shows it was their error, possibly due to the holiday backlog they are working quickly through.

I'm sure a staff member will review this here and push them through if all is correct.

For episode 6, I have tried to delete the extraneous credits 7 times and they've failed to go through all 7 times. For episode 8, I've only done it twice. I'll try the imgur link as you suggested.

@constantine_booras​ Hopefully a staffer will still come past, so if you submit new attempts with screenshots, post the contribution numbers in here, they may expedite things. Good luck.

Hi constantine_booras -

Are you able to provide screen grabs of the on-screen credits for these episodes verifying the credited voice cast members?

I don't know how to do screenshots like Von Punk has suggested, but I can link to the episodes themselves on the Adult Swim website.

Episode 1.6 The Persistence of Memory: https://www.adultswim.com/videos/blade-runner-black-lotus/persistence-of-memory

Episode 1.8 The Davis Report: https://www.adultswim.com/videos/blade-runner-black-lotus/the-davis-report

Episode 1.9 Free Will: https://www.adultswim.com/videos/blade-runner-black-lotus/free-will

@constantine_booras​ 
Here  you go matey, I made the screenshots of the cast credits of those 3 episodes for you, feel free to use the links.

Episode 1.6 - https://imgur.com/2wXCCQu

Episode 1.8 - https://imgur.com/9VYkfSd

Episode 1.9 - https://imgur.com/JvC4Y4q


Also if you send links to video's I'd advise using Amazon video wherever possible, I don't know how many video sites staff have access to but Amazon has to be a definite since they own IMDb, just the page will do like this: Watch Blade Runner: Black Lotus: Season 1 | Prime Video (amazon.com)
And the time stamps for the credits you want them to review for better results. The credits for these 3 episodes all fall roughly between 21m40s - 21m50s.
Hope this gets the job done for you.

Much appreciated, Von Punk! Thank you! I'll remember to use Amazon Video from now on, though I'm pretty sure the Adult Swim website lets you view the episodes for free, so that's why I went with that! We'll see what Michelle says!

No problem, if you need any further screenshots just let me know here.

Links might depend on where you are based, I'm geoblocked in the UK from watching on Adult Swim. I'm not entirely certain where IMDb editors are based and what they can access, so I play it safe with Amazon if the show is on there and get better results.

Does anyone on here know where IMDb editors are based?
