Easier process to edit data?

I just tried to find out which "version" of "Mark Miller" is part of "Dead Cert (2010)" (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1499220/fullcredits/?ref_=tt_cl_sm) - and didn't find him. So I took out the BluRay at just to add him - and watching the end credits I had to find out that he is not the only one missing. Additionally a load of the cast is listed as "uncredited" altough they are and so on.

Well, not sure if there is any other way to edit the profile of the movie a little bit easier: For me this is so exhausting checking at every added actor "I don't know if he/she is part of IMDB - let the team decide". And if you take a look at the screenshots below, practically 90 % of the data are wrong. The allready mentioned missings, the wrong "uncredited" plus a huge load of roles listed totaly different in the credits.

I presume that there is no alternative way to edit the site? And to be honest: This is too much to do for me. My plan was to control my collection. But now on all 5 or 6 movies I have to add missing cast, do corrections, send screenshots etc. So if someone is more experienced than me in editing, would you be so kind and correct/enhance the cast as credited? The missing headline on the first site is "The Paradise Crew". Many thanks in advance! For me there are too many actors with several persons having/using the same name....

No chance for ANY support in this case? There is so much missing + in wrong order etc. but the system for update & correction is definitely to complicated. So this means that for every correction I have to check that I don't know which one of the countless actors of this-and-that name is the right one and someone else needs to decide?

Well, I got no problem to do an update here and there, but replacing nearly every data of a whole profile is not my job!

Perhaps you can pick some edits to make that you are sure about. No one can do everything.

Although it is possible, there is in my opinion limited value in adding names if you can't determine who the credits belong to. IMDb staff doesn't have a magical ability to decide and will usually just add new pages for those names if you select that option.

Cast list on this page was really messy with bad order numbers, bad character names, bad uncredited attributes etc.. but I think it looks better now, I added missing credits, removed incorrect (uncredited) attributes, added uncredited attributes to uncredited credits, fixed character names, fixed order numbers, added as attributes and marked cast as complete: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1499220/fullcredits

@mbmb​ Wonderful! Many many thanks! For me it was kind of impossible that way as too many of the names are used by several different actors. And I don't know even one of them. Many thanks once again!
