Credit only or Cast deletion? Esaret (2022)

While I stopped updating Esaret (2022) a couple of months ago for other Dizis, several Esaret (2022) Episodes were updated with "credit only" Cast characters, but the Attribute isn't stated, or with Cast Characters that do not appear in credits nor appear on-screen in those episodes.

Should I submit deletion request instead of credit only request when applicable?

Many thanks in advance

Hello Malagaaunike,

You can submit the corrections/deletions using our online Update Form, you can find instructions and help in our Help Articles, remember to attach evidence for us to make sure the corrections/deletions are correct.

But I would like to know what is best for the database. Cast deletion when credited but did not appear acting on screen or " credit only" Attribute?

In this case "credit only" would be the way to list the credits, as we show in our Help Articles:

(credit only): Someone is credited, but did no work - this is most common for a TV series, where a regular cast member does not appear in a particular episode.

More work for me though... 20 to 24 Cast credits x 378 Episodes. Does it mean I have to go back to my submissions and add all credited Cast characters and apply "credit only" rule when applicable?

Hi @Malagaaunike​ -

You can submit the corrections via two ways (unfortunately, both options will be time-consuming):

1) If you know the specific cast members, you can submit the corrections directly from their IMDb name pages, doing the updates this way you will select all the episodes that require the correction and you can easily paste the "(credit only)" text in the attribute field

2) You can submit the correction to each episode individually, you would then select to correct the applicable cast credits on that episode.  As you can imagine, this will be time consuming if there are 300+ episodes to update in this way.

Unfortunately, we don;t have a bulk correction tool for this use-case, I would recommend trying the first strategy.

Let us know if you have any further questions or encounter issues making the updates!

Thank you very much Michelle. I already started doing it for each episode. I did my own system when I encountered this issue/problem so it would be less time consuming. It does take me to re-watch each Episode but I don't mind cause I adore it and would love for Esaret (2022) to be accurate.

Many thanks for your help and answer.

Problem solved.
