"Declined." Again. (This is idiotic.)
15 April 2022
Another in my long list of declined submissions.
Another one that can't be backed up by a screen grabs. Not that screen grabs work, in my experience.
Watching a TV show from 1980 and an actor whose voice I recognise can be heard on the soundtrack. He has a couple of lines of dialogue, that's all. But it's clearly him. I like this guy, so it's a nice surprise as I had no idea he was in this. I spent the rest of the episode waiting for him to appear, but he doesn't. And he's not credited.
However, he's the main guest star the next episode. (It's a two-part story.)
Seems pretty darn clear, to me, that he should be added to the IMDb listing for that episode. Two other actors already have "(voice)(uncredited)" listings. And a further 4 actors have "(uncredited)" listings.
Therefore, using common sense and critical thinking, you'd imagine it would be easy to get this guy added, as well. He's guest starring in Part Two of the story, after all, and the listing already has 6 uncredited actors included. 6!!
But, no, that's not how IMDb works.
I'd love to know who the people are at the other end. The people who actually read these contributions and make these idiotic decisions. Do they know anything about TV shows of the 1980s, for example? I'm serious. Frequently - but not this time - I include paragraphs of explanatory text with my contributions. But they still get declined. It's like trying to explain the internet to a kitten!
I didn't bother with reams of explanatory text this time, because... what's the point? Honestly. What. Is. The. Point? It never works anyway.
