Changes to Script & Continuity credits
Just a quick announcement regarding Script & Continuity credits listed on IMDb.
In our continued efforts to accurately reflect the work of those in the industry and expand our ability to display data in the most authentic way - we'll be moving a large number of credits relating to Script & Continuity into their own category.
This process will take a couple of days to complete, so you may see some changes happening around these roles. Once all the changes have been completed, we'll respond on this thread to let you know.
If you believe you have credits listed on your page which should be moved into this new department, please do not submit an update until we confirm the process has been completed as this may impact the migration.
You can find a new article on our help site which provides some more context to the roles - for example:

The script department only includes production jobs - script related jobs for members of the screenwriting staff (like story editors) still belong to the writers list
It also only includes script continuity jobs - visual or sound continuity tasks (e.g. animation or storyboard continuity, adr continuity, etc.) belong to those respective departments (animation department, art department, sound department etc.)
